Move Closer reached the #1 spot in United Kingdom, making her the first black woman top the UK charts with her own composition.[1] The song was originally released in April 1984 but failed to chart, but was re-released in February 1985 after BBC Radio London started to play it, the song began to climb the charts, taking 12 weeks to climb to #1.[2] Move Closer remained on the charts for just over five months during 1985, ended up as the seventh biggest song of 1985[3] and the eighty-second highest selling single of the 1980s.[4] In 1994 it was reissued and returned to the UK Singles Chart, this time reaching #34, on the back of it being featured in an anti-persperant commercial.[5]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
