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

Erasure - Oh L'amour

'Oh L'amour' is a song by English synth pop duo Erasure, released in April 1986 as their third single.

It was issued by Mute Records in the UK and Sire Records in the U.S. to herald the June release of Erasure's debut album Wonderland, but became the third consecutive commercial failure for the band in both territories. Despite its low chart placing, 'Oh L'amour' has proven to be one of Erasure's signature songs, due to its popularity in dance clubs. It remains a favorite among fans, particularly when performed live.

Written by Erasure members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, 'Oh L'amour' is a lament from someone experiencing unrequited love ("broke my heart / now I'm aching for you").

In 1986, "Oh L'amour" climbed to number eighty-five on the UK singles chart and became Erasure's first big hit in South Africa number 2, in Germany number 16, in Australia number 13 and their only one in France number 14. In the United States, the song's biggest impact was on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, where it hit number three. A different mix of the song was submitted for the single release, adding new instrumentation and extra sounds. This version appears on all of the band's compilation albums.

'Oh L'amour' was remixed in 2003 and released as a single again to promote the greatest hits package Hits! The Very Best of Erasure. In its remixed form, the song finally became a Top 20 UK hit, peaking at number thirteen in autumn 2003.

The single was originally relesed with characters from Thomas The Tank Engine on the cover. This had to be withdrawn and replaced in the UK with a black sleeve.
