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

Carpenters - Santa Claues Is Coming To Town

Well I wanted to do soething a little different this christmas and post some songs that I love from various years (not just the 80's). So here goes....

'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' (sometimes with Coming changed to Comin') is a Christmas song.

It was written by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie, and was first sung on Eddie Cantor's radio show in November 1934.

It became an instant hit with orders for 100,000 copies of sheet music the next day and more than 400,000 copies sold by Christmas.

In 1974 The Carpenters released the song as their 19th single. Released fro the albu 'An Old Fashioned Christmas' the single ade it to number 35 on the UK singles Charts.

The B-Side to the single was 'Merry Christas Darling'.

'Merry Christmas, Darling' was written by Richard Carpenter & Frank Pooler and originally recorded in 1970. At the time, it was first available on a 7" single from A&M Records (1236) and later in 1974 reissued as A&M 1648 and in 1977 as A&M 1991.

The single went to number one on Billboard's Christmas singles chart in 1970, and did again in 1971 and 1973.

Billboard magazine did not display Christmas singles on the Hot 100 in 1970. This song just missed the top 40 in Cash Box.
