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

Chicago - Hard To Say I'm Sorry

'Hard to Say I'm Sorry' is a 1982 Billboard Hot 100 number 1 hit ballad performed by American rock group Chicago, written by band member Peter Cetera and producer David Foster from the album Chicago 16, released in 1982. The song hit number one for two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on September 11 of that year. It was their first top 50 hit since 'No Tell Lover' in 1978.

The song, as well as the album on which it is featured, was a marked departure from Chicago's traditional soft rock, horns-driven sound, taking on a more polished and modern feel. There were minimal horns on the track, instead featuring more layered synthesizers and heavier distorted electric guitars in a more updated 1980s fashion. This was done to revitalize the band that was considered by some to be past its commercial prime at the time.

The album version of 'Hard to Say I'm Sorry' segued into a second song titled 'Get Away,' which was closer to the older horn-driven Chicago sound.

Deviating from Chicago's practice of having mostly band members playing on their albums, 'Hard to Say I'm Sorry' featured several session musicians. The song featured producer David Foster on the piano, as well as three members of the American rock band Toto: Steve Lukather on guitar, while David Paich and Steve Porcaro both contributed synthesizers. The song's vocals were performed by Cetera and new member Bill Champlin.

The music video, itself using the album version, was shot in Greece. In Chicago performing the act with some studio musicians.

The single managed to make it to number 4 in the UK singles charts.
