Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Frida - I Know There's something Going On

'I Know There's Something Going On' is a song recorded in 1982 by ABBA singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad (Frida).

Recording began in ABBA's Polar Music Studio, Stockholm, in February 1982. As ABBA were unofficially on a break, Lyngstad spent time on her solo project.

At the time of recording this song/album, Frida wanted to distance herself from the typical ABBA pop sound.

'I Know There's Something Going On' was written by Russ Ballard and produced by Genesis drummer & singer Phil Collins, who also played drums on the song. The back-up vocals are sung by Lyngstad herself & Collins.

The song & video were released in Autumn 1982 & became a massive hit. It hit number 1 in France, Belgium, Switzerland and Costa Rica and was a Top 10 hit throughout the whole of Europe, as well as in Australia and South Africa. In the United States, the track reached number 13. In the UK the song peaked at number 43 in September 1982.

The music video was directed by Stuart Orme and filmed at several locations in London, England in early July 1982. The video, which received heavy promotion on MTV due to the worldwide success of the song, shows Frida as a young woman in a struggling relationship. She then discovers through photos taken at a fashion shoot that her husband or lover is seeing another woman.

  1. The funny thing is: The B-Side "Threnody" was written by two people - Dorothy Parker and a guy named Per Gessle (one half of a famous swedish Rock/Pop Duo)...
