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

The Supremes - You Can't Hurry Love

Wwell I put up the Phil collins version of thi s song so I thought I would share the original version. so here it is.

'You Can't Hurry Love' is 1966 song originally released by The Supremes for the Motown label.

Written and produced by Motown production team Holland–Dozier–Holland, the song topped the United States Billboard pop singles chart, in the UK in the top 5, and in the Australian Singles Chart in the top 10, released and peaking late summer/early autumn in 1966.

Sixteen years later, it would again become a number-one hit when Phil Collins rerecorded the song. It reached number-one on the UK Singles Chart for two weeks beginning in January 1983.

The song itself, a memory of a mother's words of encouragement ("My mama said 'you can't hurry love/No you just have to wait'") telling her daughter that with patience she will find that special someone one day, is an example of the strong influence of gospel music present in much of R and B and soul music.

'You Can't Hurry Love' also showcases the developing sound of The Supremes, who were progressing from their earlier teen-pop into more mature themes and musical arrangements. This song and 'You Keep Me Hangin' On' were finished together; when it came time to choose which single would be issued first, Motown's Quality Control department chose 'You Can't Hurry Love.'

Written and produced by Motown's main production team, Holland–Dozier–Holland, 'You Can't Hurry Love' is one of the signature Supremes songs, and also one of Motown's signature releases. The single became The Supremes' seventh number-one hit, topping the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for two weeks, from September 4, 1966 to September 17, 1966, and reaching number one on the soul chart for two weeks. The girl group performed the song on the CBS variety program The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday, September 25, 1966.

'You Can't Hurry Love' was the second single from the Supremes' album The Supremes A' Go-Go. It reached the number 1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart in the United States, and number 3 in the United Kingdom. The Supremes' version of the song is honored by inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's permanent collection of 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

The Supremes also released their own Italian cover of the song: L'amore verrà (Love will come).
