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

Steve Miller Band - Abracadabra

'Abracadabra' is a song by American rock group Steve Miller Band, written by Steve Miller. The song was released as the first single from the 1982 album of the same name. The song is said to have been inspired by the American singer Diana Ross with whom Miller had met while performing together on Hullabaloo in the 1960s and is listed at number 70 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of all time.

The song became a world-wide hit, charting in ten countries and topping the charts in six countries, and has became one of the band's biggest hits, along with 'The Joker'.

In the United States, the song was number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two non-consecutive weeks. It knocked Chicago's 'Hard to Say I'm Sorry' out of the number 1 spot, just as Chicago had done to the Steve Miller Band in 1976 when 'If You Leave Me Now' knocked 'Rock'n Me' out of the number 1 spot.

The song holds the record for the biggest drop out of the Top 10/Top 40. In the fall of 1982, as it was moving down the chart, 'Abracadabra' fell 38 spots from number 10 to number 48 in one week.

In the UK the single made it to number 2 in the Singles Charts.

  1. I think Kenny G's "Auld Lang Syne" might now hold the record for biggest drop out of the Top 10/Top 40, as it fell from #8 to #66 in January 2000.
