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

Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder - Goodbye Bad Time

'Good-Bye Bad Times' is a song by the British singer and composer Philip Oakey and producer Giorgio Moroder.

It was written by Oakey and Moroder and recorded for the album Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder.

Released as a single in the UK in June 1985 as the follow-up to Oakey and Moroder's 1984 hit 'Together In Electric Dreams'; it reached number 44 in the singles charts and remained in the charts for 5 weeks.

Virgin records had high expectations for the single but it failed to sell in the quantities forecast. Because the single was not a huge success, it didn't do much to promote the album. After a final single 'Be My Lover Now' the short partnership between Oakey and Moroder effectively ended. Oakey then returned to work with his band The Human League full time.

The music video for 'Good-Bye Bad Times' was quite a high budget production as Virgin Records had high expectations for the song after the huge international success of 'Together in Electric Dreams'. It was filmed in black and white, directed by Steve Barron and has a Victoriana theme. It is set in 19th century London and features unrequited love between a city gent and a pretty working class girl. Oakey features inset in the early scenes and later as a singer in the background of a Music hall dressed in Victorian attire. A paradox of the video is that the modern music is completely at odds with the scenery and story board.
