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

Kraftwerk - The Model

'Das Model' (spelling on album: 'Das Modell'; English version title: 'The Model') is a song recorded by the electro-pop group Kraftwerk in 1978; written by musicians Ralf Hütter and Karl Bartos, with artist Emil Schult collaborating on the lyrics.

It is featured on the album, Die Mensch-Maschine; English version title: The Man-Machine. It is one of the band's most accessible and melodic songs.

First released as a 7 inch single in Germany (B-side: 'Neonlicht'), under its English translation the song was eventually included on the B-side of the 'Computer Love' single released in July 1981, which reached number 36 in the UK charts.

When radio DJs started playing the B-side, EMI re-issued the single in December 1981 – apparently against the band's wishes – with 'The Model' as the A-side. It reached number 1 in February 1982 and spent a total of 21 weeks in the top 75 of the UK singles charts.
