Hello pals. Welcome to week 350 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Tel wiph Let's Dance from David Bowie and Freddy Mercury.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done Terence with with winning Lets Dance with Tina Turner and David Bowie and lovely happy song, but I was a little sad too because it showed what an amazing talent David Bowie had. In the spirit of fun my choice is a real foot tapper. The intro to the TV series Happy Days, were we ever that innocent?




@skye613
So Sir Terence wins again! Woo Hoo! Going with duets today. Bowie & Tina Turner are both well known & famous. Only one member of this duet is famous but I couldn't resist. Not only is this the first time he's performed in public, he also wrote the song. Pink & her Dad. " I Have Seen The Rain"





@maggietkat
Well done T with let’s dance featuring David Bowie and Tina Turner. I love both artists but it is an unusual pairing. I remembered another odd pairing, Tony Bennett and Lady GaGa. Here they are doing “Cheek to Cheek” (dancing is the second link).






@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sir Terence won with Tina Turner and David Bowie and Let's Dance. In that song there is a line 'put on your red shoes' . So who else wore red shoes well Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz and here is Judy Garland singing Follow The Yellow Brick Road.





@djladylexie
Nice duet that one. There's blinkin loads of em! Tina wiv Bryan, Bryan wiv Barbra (Streisand), David with Freddie, Freddie wiv Montserrat. Hmmm wot to dus! Well for me is no brainer. Me goin wiv opera linky. What? Ang on but how? Well, Bowie's song was Changes was used in the Chicago rock opera Changes. Prolly one of the greatest rock singers ever was Freddie Mercury. Freddie sang wiv opera singer Montserrat wiv da fantastic Barcelona. There you goes. Opera be me linky see?





@claptonterrier (Tel didn't see this one I finks)
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was Sir Terence and the song “lets Dance”…that made us think about songs about dancing….and then thinking about the dance called the Mashed Potatoes…we never quite understood why it was called that….but we are delighted to find that the dance has its own song…so this week our linky is Dee Deee Sharp and The Mashed Potatoe Time*!

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forth Ninth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 349 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Maggie wiph I'm Telling You Now from Freddie and the Dreamers.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done Maggie with I’m Telling You Now.I thought and thought I thought funny dancing I decided to go for Joyce Grenfell with Old Time Dancing (Stately as a Galleon) we need to smile in these sad times.



@terenceterrier
Last week Miss Maggie win wiv "I'm Telling You Now " in a video wiv Freddie and The Dreamers / Frankie Avalon doing a strange dance. So I looks for a linky on da dance theme n wiv 2 artists performing together and I give yoo Tina Turner and David Bowie performing "Let's Dance" live. Ps. Whilst doing my research I did find video of "The Chicken Dance" wiv Mr Bean, Mr Obama n Justin Bieber wot also fitted my criteria but since some of yoo may be of a sensitive disposition I fort it best to pass on it.



@cloonfourmegan
Last week clever Maggie won with Frankie Avalon singing I'm telling you now. Frankie A was in the movie of Grease famously singing Beauty School Dropout. But we pick our favourite song from the film oh yes it's Greased Lightning!




@skye613
Congrats to Maggie! Freddie & the Dreamers were part of the Merseybeat sound, although they hailed from Manchester. Many great bands & artists came/ come from Manchester including one of my early favs The Hollies. Link this week .... " Look Through Any Window." Staying with the oldies! Enjoy.




@sonikebt
Well done Maggie for the winning link “I’m telling you now” by Freddie and the Dreamers with Frankie Avalon. What Freddie was “telling you” was that he was in love. Eric Stewart from 10cc thought that if he kept saying I Love You to his wife over & over that it would mean nothing, even though he did love her. This was the idea behind 10cc’s hit, and our link this week, “I’m Not in Love”




@djladylexie
Well done Maggie! Freddie and the Dreamers. Freddie - Freddie Garrity - once worked as a milkman in Manchester. The most famous milkman song must be Ernie, he drove the fastest milk cart in the west you know!




An da winner as chosen by ............... Maggie ...................... dus be  .............................. El Tel! Yay. You choosin next week me pal.

Ere wot Maggie said: What wonderful links! After some deliberation, my choice is Tina Turner and David Bowie with Let's Dance. 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 16th October 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forty Eighth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 348 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Megan wiph Queen and Bohemian Rhapsody.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with the head banger version of Bohemian Rhapsody, laughed until I piddled.  How could any choice follow that? How about honoring Freddie Mercury? There is a short lived dance craze called The Freddie. Here is Freddie and the Dreamers with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello doing “I’m Telling You Now’.




@tclaptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was the song Bohemian Rhapsody…..and now as I have given up all hope of ever picking a winning link again I am choosing the song “Bohemian Like You” by the Dandy Warhols in the hope that some of the magic might rub off on my linky…..*desperate ears*



@terenceterrier
Larst week Dame Megan ( she's da floofy sister wivowt da big bum - allegedly) winned wiv " Bohemian Rhapsody " from da Wayne's World movie. For my linky dis week I gives yoo "Rule The World by Take That n da vershun I chooses is dem performing live at da London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony. How duss I link dem I hear yoo all ask. Well it's complicated. I takes a very long n torturous route where I shows I can get from one to da other n it would probs make Lexie's paws drop off from doing all da typing. So Take That explanayshun (geddit ! ) n believe me.




@skye613
Congrats to Megan winning with Wayne's World last week! So Mom did immediately think of Carpool Karaoke. Our linky this week is Sia and James Corden! Gotta stick with singing in da car!




@djladylexie
Is dis da real life? Is dis just fantasy? Well good questions me finks. Probably one of the worst covers ever of dis most amazin song has got to be William Shatner - even though it's quite good in some strange way. Anyhoo he has done loads of em, one of our faves does be Common People. Of course, the awesome Jarvis Cocker was the original singer of da song wiv his band Pulp. Well so that is me linky Common People from Pulp.




An da winner as chosen by ............... Megan ...................... dus be  .............................. Maggie! Yay. You choosin next week me pal.

Ere wot Megan said: It’s me Megan wiv da small bum! I put on my judging wig and do have carefully examined the very good entries this week. I was tempted to give the sympathy vote to Linky 2 but I just can’t resist ‘doing the Freddie’ so my choice is Linky 1

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 9th October 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee. So good idea to type DO NOT DELETE in the title and dussnt forget to send a linky to da video from You Tube!

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forty Seventh Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 347 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Bertie wiph War of the Worlds Eve of Ware from Jeff Wayne.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@cloonfourmegan
Well done Bertie wining with Eve of War and Jeff Wayne
We been finking about Wayne's and we like this from Wayne's World! *bangs head in time*.




@terenceterrier
Last week clever Sir Bertie win wiv an instrumental track from War of the Worlds wot be a scary film abowt aliens invading earth. I gonna keep wiv da instrumental link n da alien link. E T be a film abowt aliens wot visit earth ( not scary ones) so I gonna have the film main soundtrack by John Williams as my linky.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was the Eve of Destruction by Jeff Wayne….that is a pessimistic sounding song…particularly in view of world events…so this week we are taking an optimistic view of the coming troubles with another Wayne…this time it is Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips…and their song “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt1”…





@skye613
Congrats to Bertie! Seems we are on a roll with links about War. " The  Eve of the War " was a song from the musical version of The War of the Worlds. On this album, Justin Hayward sang some vocals. Best known perhaps for his work with the Moody Blues, Justin asked on Question" why do we never get an answer to hate and death and war. My linky this week "Question" .




'@maggietkat

Well done Bertie with Eve of War. There seems to be a war in the U.S. between police, shooting victims and subsequent riots. Here is Prince with “Baltimore”.

https://youtu.be/cieZB0Ab7xk

@djladylexie
Well done Bertie. Ok dis be a long one but worf it me finks. So, our linky does be wartime sweetheart Vera Lynn. What the dog? Well let me tell you. First we have War of the Worlds. One star in that musical was Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy fame. Phil was married to Caroline Crowther, daughter of comedy star Leslie Crowther. Lesie Crowther had a radio show called The League of Ovaltineys. The show was on a pirate radio station called Radio Luxemboug. One star who, after being snubbed by the BBC for her 'out-dated music' who became a big hit with Radio Luxembourg was Vera Lynn. Vera Lynn was a war-time sweetheart and a wonderful singer who provided morale to the men and women who suffered during WWII. So there you go, Vera Lynn, war-time sweetheart singing We'll Meet Again. Boom!




@sonikebt
Well done Bertie for your winning link “Eve of the War” by Jeff Wayne. There has been a wee bit of war and destruction over the last couple of weeks. War is an expensive business but “Peace is Free” - Black Stone Cherry.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Bertie ...................... dus be  .............................. Megan! Yay. You choosin next week me pal.

Ere wot Bertie said: I've given a lot of thought to the list, all brilliant choices which made it so difficult to choose. In the end I kept going back to Waynes World and their hilarious version of Bohemian Rhapsody. Thank you whoever chose that for making me laugh, the state of the world as it is we need to laugh.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 2nd October 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.

Hello pals. Welcome to week 346 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Tel wiph Eve of Destruction by Barry MgGuigan.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@cloonfourmegan
Last week Terence did win wiv Barry McGuire and Eve of Destruction. Well if you are going to have destruction you need a Demolition Man so I gives you Mr Sting and Da Police.




@diamondbertie
Terence won with Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire brilliant choice. I can't believe it 36 years since the release, track one "Eve of the War" is my choice. The War of the Worlds (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) by Jeff Wayne




@claptonterrier
last week Sir Terence won wit a song by Barry McGuire…now we have been struggling with this all week as we just kept hearing Barry McGuigan in our head….Barry McGuigan was a famous boxer from the 1980s…so this week our linky is The Boxer by Simon & Garfunkel…




@skye613
My linky is a tune that Mom has always associated with "Eve of Destruction" for some reason. They both resonate the same tone, both from the 60's and she was a bit of a wild child at that point. Pssst, don't tell!




@djladylexie
This is about destruction. Many people over the years haven been terrified of a nuclear explosion and destruction of da planet. I like this video from Kate Bush wot as an interestin approach on this concept.



@sonikebt
Well done Sir Tel for winning the link with "Eve of Destruction". Now Eve had a pal called Adam who was a bit of a "Prince Charming" - Adam & the Ants.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Tel ...................... dus be  ..............................  Bertie. Yay.

Ere wot Tel said: Fanks pals for da 6 linkies. Decishuns Decishuns . Dis be hard.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forty Fifth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 345 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner me wiph Games Without Frontiers by Peter Gabriel. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done winning with your choice Games Without Frontiers by Peter Gabriel, very topical in the troubled times we are living in.  My spontaneous thought went to the movie Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, this film caused such a stir at the time. My choice is The Glory Of Love from the said film.




@maggietkat
Well done Lexie with Games Without Frontiers. First thing I thought of for a link is go with Frontier. With the passing of Walter Becker, Steely Dan is on my mind. So here is a song from Donald Fagan's first solo album  (The Nightfly), New Frontier.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was Games Without Frontiers….this reminds us of the organisation Medecins Sans Frontiers …or Doctors Without Borders as it is known in English….doctors spend their whole day diagnosing patients …..and some of their patients can be…well…impatient….so this week our linky is Robert Palmer singing “Bad Case of Loving yOu” which has the lyrics…

… Doctor, doctor, give me the news
I've got a bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna cure my ill
I've got a bad case of lovin’ you,,,




@terenceterrier
Larst week sooper dooper DJ Miss Lexie winned da chainy wiv Peter Gabriel n "Games Without Frontiers " . Appawrently  da songy 's lyrics have been interpreted as a commentary on war and internashunal diplomacy being like children's games. Da video I wotched of it shows lotsa pix of nuclear or atomic bombs exploding n peeps praktisin survival drills. Very apt choice wiv current US / North Korea situation. So for my linky I gonna select one of my favrit songs on dis issue "Eve of Destruction " by Barry McGuire. *retires to concrete underground bunker for nap*




@skye613
So we has to linky to Lexies winning tune " Games Without Frontiers ". Great tune. Gonna stick with gaming! Have always loved this song. This version is great, live and with Melissa. Youtube done something strange so hope this comes through. " Foolish Games" What you say? No, Dis not a foolish game!





An da winner as chosen by ............... me dad  ...................... dus be  ..............................  Terence (again!). Yay.

Ere wot me dad said: Oh well very good links as always. I am torn between 3 and 4 both very good ... hmmmmm ok 4 pipped it.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 18th September 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forty Fourth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 344 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiph Everyfink is Awesome from the Lego. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done Skye with winning last week with your choice of Everything is Awesome from the Lego Movie, in keeping with youth my choice this week is Joyce Grenfell monologue Nursery School.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winning song was Everything is Awesome….but this week in music everything is decidedly not awesome as Walter Becker has died…the driving force behind Steely Dan…so this week our link is a tribute to the great man…..and we have selected Kid Charlemagne by Steely Dan.




@maggietkat
Well done Skye with Forever Autumn, the Lego jingle. I had to stay with the Lego theme. The self professed loudest band in England had a, um, hit. Here is Spinal Taps' "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You" as performed by Legos.




@cloonfourmegan
Skye did win with Everything is Awesome from the Lego film. Lego is as we all know plastic bricks. Kate Nash made an album called Made of Bricks and this is the most famous song from it Foundations.




@terenceterrier
Clever Pal Syke gives us da linky "Everything Is Awesome" from the Lego movie. Annuva werd for Awesome be Wonderful. So afta dat nifty bit of pawwerk I select "Wonderful Life" by Hurts as my linky .( high paw to da dancers in da video - I dussnt do wet ).




@sonikebt
Well done Skye for winning with "Everything is Awesome" which was sung by the identical twins Tegan & Sara Quin. Our link this week is from the best singing identical twins in the business - "I'm gonna be (500 miles)" by the Proclaimers.




@djladylexie
Skye winned wiph Everything is Awsome from the Lego. Lego began life in the workshop of a man called Christiansen in Denmark who started making wooden toys in 1932. Lego comes from the Danish phrase 'leg godt' which means play well. One fing wot I am very good at is playing well, as I am sure me uvva pals dus too. Some games are fun, others are quite scary and the people who play them dust not care what the end result will be. Peter Gabriel sang about it so me gives you - Games Without Frontiers.




An da winner as chosen by ............... Skye ...................... dus be  ..............................  oh flippin flop ....... is me again!.

Ere wot me Skye said: Great tunes! Have to go with linky #7. Love  the way you got there!
