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

Sheena Easton - For Your Eyes Only

'For Your Eyes Only' is the theme tune to the 12th James Bond movie, For Your Eyes Only, written by Bill Conti and Mick Leeson, and performed by Scottish singer Sheena Easton. It was nominated for Best Song at the Academy Awards in 1982.

The American new wave band Blondie wrote a song entitled 'For Your Eyes Only' in the hopes of making it the upcoming James Bond film's opening-title theme. The producers preferred another song with the same title, written by Bill Conti and Mike Leeson. Blondie turned down an offer to record Conti and Leeson's song. (The band later included their 'For Your Eyes Only' song on the 1982 album The Hunter.)

Sheena Easton was keen to accept the offer to perform Conti and Leeson's song for the film. She had recently scored a No.1 hit in America with 'Morning Train' and was becoming a big name throughout the world.

Easton is the only artist to be seen singing the theme song to a Bond movie during its opening titles. Her seductive appearance in these clips was, according to Roger Moore, more sexy than any of the Bond girls, although Easton herself states that the filming process was very unglamorous. Easton is one of three Scots to have sung a Bond theme, the others being Lulu's singing 'The Man with the Golden Gun' and Shirley Manson (as part of the band Garbage) for 'The World Is Not Enough'.

The single became a would wide hit making it to number 8 in the UK Singles Chart, number 4 in the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 in the Swiss Chart.

The video 'For Your Eyes Only' was directed by Steve Barron.
