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

Elton John - I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues

'I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues' is a song by British singer Elton John (with lyrics by Bernie Taupin) featuring Stevie Wonder on harmonica. 

The song appeared on the album 'Too Low For Zero' Released as a single in April 1983, the song reached number five in the UK chart and number four in the US chart six months later. The song was also featured on the film soundtrack to Peter's Friends in 1992.

The original music video tells the story of two 1950s-era young lovers who are separated when the man is forced to leave for military training, and then are finally reunited at the end of the song. It was filmed in the Rivoli Ballroom in London and is marked as one of the very few times John has been filmed or videotaped without wearing his trademark eyeglasses.
The song received largely favourable reviews, with Bill Janovitz of Allmusic declaring the song "likely to stand the test of time as a standard."
A fan favorite, John has also performed it live numerous times, occasionally playing it as part of a medley along with his hit "Blue Eyes" (from the 1982 album Jump Up!).

It has gone on to be one of John's most-played songs on radio selections from the 1980s portion of his career. It is also quite well known for being played at Chelsea F.C.'s home matches.
