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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 337 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Maggie wiv Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett an Bang Bang. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@sonikebt
Well done @MaggieTKat for winning with "Bang Bang" by Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett. This did remind us of a classic, and Eurovision winner, from Glasgow's finest ... Lulu "Boom bang a bang".




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Maggie won wiv Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. Tony Bennett also did a duet with the late very great Amy Winehouse so here she is with one of her best songs.




@terenceterrier
Larst week pal Maggie with da linky "Bang Bang" by Lady Gaga n Tony Bennett. Da original vershun woz recorded Nancy Sinatra. She also singed a duet wiv her dad "Something Stupid" wot made No 1 on da Billboard Hot 100. Da same songy duet woz also No 1 in da UK singles chart when singed by Robbie Williams n Nicole Kidman. Dis be my linky *paws crossed his twinkly eyes n cheeky grin  swing it*.




@skye613
Yeah! Maggie did win with a great tune " Bang Bang". Sticking with the shots! Thought we would do a cover for a cover. And this version is great!




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was a duet by Lady Gaga and Mr Tony Bennett….so this started us thinking about famous duets….so we went to the Google machine and looked at famous duets …..interestingly most of them seem to be pop songs or soul songs..and old fashioned rock n roll does not get much of a look in…so this week our linky is going to be a famous guitar-based duet…..Stop Dragging My Heart Around by Toby Petty and Steve Nicks…




@djladylexie
Hmmm let me fink ... okay ... Lady Gaga is well known for her provocative and strange costumes. Probably the most strangest was a dress of raw beef! Beef comes from cows as we all know. Cowboys are men wot err well round up cows. They loves a country and western song dus them cowboys so what better song than Rawhide, performed here by the amazin Blues Brothers!





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

Ere wot Maggie said:  My choice is I Shot the Sheriff by Bob Marley and the Wailers. You guys all chose songs that are in my genres! You know me so well. We haven't had any reggae in a while so I picked one of my faves.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Thirty Sixth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 336 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Clapton wiv Gunpower and Lead from a country singing lady wot I can't remember. Lets see wot we gots dis week:

@maggietkat
Well done Sir with Gunpowder and Lead. I looked for songs of abruptly ended relationships where the listener has to make assumptions regarding why. I remembered the old nugget penned by Sonny Bono, Bang Bang, where the singer gets the lead (rather than shooting the lover). I chose a Lady Gaga version, an interesting combo of Cher hair, jazz and Argentine tango.




@claptonterrier
Larst week little woolly pal Sir Clapton won da chainy  wiv Miranda Lambert n "Gunpowder and Lead". She sings abowt using a shot gun. When she pulls da trigger it will go bang ! bang ! So my linky dis week be by DJ Fresh vs Diplo and "Bang Bang" . ( dis official video vershun on Viveo swung it for me!).



@cloonfourmegan
Last week Clapton won with great country song Gunpowder and Lead. We no like Gunpowder but we does like face powder so we gives you this from that great Welsh singer no not Tom Jones not Shirley Bassey or Bonnie Tyler. No it's Mr Shaking Stevens!




@djladylexie

Just shows you .. some people give love a bad name..... that sounds like a perfect title for a song! Bon Jovi ... You Give Love A Bad Name. In true Tucker style I gives you the live version.




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

Ere wot Claptonia said:  A small field to choose from this week…but we think everyone has done very well with good strong links and it has been quite hard to make a choice…but after sum head scratching we have decided on Link No. 1…Lady Gaga….

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 17th July 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 Thirty Fifth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 335 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Megan wiv Material Girl from Madge. Lets see wot we gots dis week:

@diamondbertie
Megan was clever with her choice Material Girl by Madonna, so my choice is connected to wealth and materialism. I choose Money Makes The world Go Around by Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey from that brilliant film Cabaret.



@maggietkat
Well done with Madonna's Material Girl!  Mum was in graduate school in 1985 and that song would blare from the fraternity houses becoming an ear worm. I chose another hit from 1985 which is also about material things. "Puttin' on the Ritz" was written by Irving Berlin and was the title song on the movie by that name. This movie was the first one to feature a mixed race chorus. I digress. Here is Taco's version.  The first link can be considered offensive since it features black face chorus but it has a great tap scene. The second link is Taco's PC version we saw on MTV.

Uncensored



PC version



I can't help myself. Young Frankenstein.




@skye613
So Madonna did sing about all the material things. What, you ask can be the polar opposite of these material things? Why my linky this week of course! Enjoy " Nature's Way ".  Getting back to basics.



@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was the song Material Girl…..that made us think about the question: what materials are girls made of? Well, the best answer we have found is from Miranda Lambert…who says that little girl are made of Gunpowder & Lead….




@terenceterrier
Megan winned wiv da linky "Material Girl" by Madonna. When Madge sez she be a material girl I dussnt fink it rilly mean she be made of cloth like Looby Looe or indeed dat she be secretly hankering after little wooly pal Clapton when she sez she wants a material man. It rilly mean she wants lotsa possesshuns ( can't take dem wiv yoo when yoo pops yor clogs Madge ! ) . Anyhows to get these fings yoo needs lotsa munney. So for my linky I chooses "Money" by The Beatles.




@djladylexie
You can av all the money in the world to buy fings but does it make you happy? I dunno! Let's ask Topol. He seems to knowwhat he'd do. He says biddy biddy diddle diddle dum or summat!




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

Ere wot Megan said: Very good linkys all round this week. We does love the musicals but we also does love hearing a new song and a bit of country and we likes the sentiments expressed in this one so our choice does be Linky 4 Gunpowder and Lead Yeehah! 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 10th July 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 Thirty Fourth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 334 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Sonic and Spike wiv Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. Lets see wot we gots dis week:

@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sonic did win with the Beatles and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. They say Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend and who wants them more than a Material Girl and here she is Madonna.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….our winner this week is Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds…..and this is of course the 50th anniversary of the release of St Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band…well in honour of that anniversary our link is the perfect pop song…and one that did not even make it on to the album proper…but was always considered a smart of the Pepper Project….its The Beatles (again!) with penny Lane…



@skye613

Congrats to Sonic, great song. So let's talk about diamonds. " We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky". Her names not Lucy, but Rihanna sure can sing about the shinny baubles in the sky!




@terenceterrier
Larst week pals Sonic n Spike winned wiv "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" by The Beatles. Iz gonna give a nifty body swerve to da LSD druggy route for a linky n plump for da fact there were diamonds in da sky. Dis be in da lyrics of da linky I select wot be "Diamonds" by Rihanna .


@djladylexie
Lucy is the Sky Wiv Diamonds.I heard it was inspired by Julian Lennon drawin wot he dun but also that it is about LSD wot be a psychedelic drug. Some of the world's most amazin artists are supposed to have used psychedelics to open up the doors of their mind happarently. I can quite believe it too! Well, one such was Jim Morrison from The Doors. I fink I gonna give you probly one of the best Doors numbers ... Riders On The Storm.



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

Ere wot Sonic an Spike said: Hi Lexie pal. Thanks for all the great links from pals. It was hard to chose especially as Link 3 & 4 were the same! However, there can only be one material girl so this week we are choosin Link 1 - Material Girl by Madonna.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 3rd July 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 Thirty Second Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 332 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Tel wiph Jefferson Airplane and Somebody To Love. Lets see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done Sir with Jefferson Airplane's Don't you need somebody to love. The song was on the ground breaking album Surrealistic Pillow. The other outstanding song from that album is White Rabbit with Alice (from Wonderland) in a leading role. SJ Tucker wrote a song about Alice and the Cheshire Cat, "We're all Mad Here". (One of my favorite quotes from the book). P.s. Mum has horrible memories of her ex trying to sing White Rabbit like Grace. *shudder*.




@diamondbertie
Well done Terence, your choice Jefferson Airplane, live at Woodstock 1969. Also at Woodstock was Joe Cocker among his many songs there was "I Shall Be Released", that is my choice.




@claptonterrier
last week our winner was a song by Jefferson Airplane…of course Jefferson is the name of an American President…Homas Jefferson….so this week we have been looking for songs about presidents…and we have selected this little ditty by They Might Be Giants…its called James K Polk….who was the 11th President of of the United States….a song they said was made to convert the most boring information they could think of.





@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sir Terence did win with Jefferson Airplane. A famous line from the film Airplane is 'Don't Call Me Shirley' and a famous Shirley is Miss Bassey. Here she is singing about History Repeating Itself.





@daisy_dor
Congrats to Sir Tel for winning last week with Jefferson Airplane and Somebody to Love. I has learnded that Jefferson Airplane did headline the Isle of Wight festival in 1968 and as we is just heading into festival season, my linky this week starts there. Annuver act wot also appeared at the 1968 festival was Smile wot was formed by Brian May in 1968 and also featured Roger Taylor. As we know, these peeps went on to form Queen with Freddie Mercury and John Deacon. Funnily enough, Queen also had a song called Somebody to Love. So there you have it, a twofer linky dis week.




@djladylexie
Jefferson Airplane what a funny name! One of their uvva hits was a song White Rabbit what is definitely about drugs I finks. Well that and Alison in Wonderland which me now firmly believes is some weir psychedelic book way ahead of its time. So in tribute to Caroll an well his very very interestin imagination I give you I Am The Walrus from The Beatles who may also have been influenced by the odd drug or two :).




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

Ere wot Terence said:   Fanks yoo for da interesting  linkies my pals. Wot great imaginayshuns yoo all haz. I only knew two of da songs dis time n strangely enuff I nearly used one of dem myself larst week. When I pick a winner I try to go wiv both track I like combined wiv a clever linky. So my winner be "We're All Mad Here" by SJ Tucker. 


So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 19th June 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 Thirty First Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 331 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiph Downtown from B52s. Lets see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with "Downtown".  The lyrics say to listen to a bossa nova and soon you will be dancing. Here is a classic bossa nova by Sergio Mendez and Brazil 66, "Mas Que Nada".




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Skye won wiv B52s covering Downtown. We liked the B52 collaboration with R.E.M. Shiny Happy People. But we pick R.E.M. s great Everybody Hurts ... take comfort in your friends





@diamondbertie
I remember Petula Clarke's version at that time, the song referred to towns, bright lights and people.  Going on my time machine I found San Francisco by Scott McKenzie, I visited this magical city many times and this song takes me back




@sonikebt
Downtown by B52s was a great winning link from @syke613 . We have gone uptown this week with our link, also with a cover version. Our link is "Uptown funk" by ..... the Minions




@terenceterrier
Larst week da linky woz "Downtown " by the B 52s. Their name be taken from an aircraft wot be a big bomber. So I look for annuva group wiv a name connected to aviation n choose Jefferson Airplane. For my linky I choose "Someone To Love" and use da live vershun from Woodstock 1969.




@daisy_dor
Congrats to Skye wiv da win last week wiv da B52s version of Downtown. The B52s did also cover Paperback Writer by The Beatles for a car commercial, but to be honest we does prefer da original so we move back from covers to original this week...




@djladylexie
Down town or from Petula Clark. Lovely song that. My linky is Bananas. What!? Petula Clark featured on the compilaton album Nostalgia Goes Bananas. Petula Clark and Harry Belafonte sang a song together called On The Path Of Glory where, ridiculously, a visiting executive from Chrysler objected to their "interracial touching" whereupon they ensured all other takes of the song were destroyed to assure that the touch woud be included! Now that really is bananas! But me linky doesn't stop there coz I am sure you know of the great Harry Belafonte hit song Banana Boat Song. So there we go - Bananas!



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

Ere wot Skye said:  Great links all! In this time that we are living in, I believe that Love is the only thing that is going to save us. Links #3, 5 and 6 all had ma paws tapping. This week we all need somebody to love. Winner is #5. And with a nod to Tucker, it's live! 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 12th June 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 Thirtieth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 330 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Maggie wiph Smokey and Tears of a Clown. Lets see what we gots this week:

@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was Tears of a Clown…..we do not like to think of sad clowns….that is not what clowns are for…so this week we have selected a more upbeat song about a Clown…..it is Clown Strike by Elvis Costello…..




@skye613
Congrats to Maggie! So this tune got me thinking about other songs that have been covered in a different genre. Couldn't resist this one. The wonderful " Downtown " from Petula Clark in 1970's disco style by the great B-52's. Enjoy!




@terenceterrier
Wowser Maggie duss be on a roll ! Her winning linky be Smokey Robinson n "Bring In The Clowns" . There be lotsa famuss clowns. My favrit be Pierrot. So my linky be "Pierrot The Clown" by Placebo. I goin wiv a live vershun from M6 Private Concert in 2006.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Maggie won wiv Tears of a Clown. We are a bit scared of clowns and this made us fink of an even more scary scene in Reservoir Dogs wiv lyrics 'clowns to the left of me' so we chooses Stuck in the Middle With You by Stealers Wheel.




@diamondbertie
Well done @maggitkat, your winning choice by The English Beat  - Tears of the Clown immediately got me thinking of On With The Motley from Pagliacci but I knew it wouldn't win. Much head scratching later I've come up with You Are So Vain by Carly Simon.




@djladylexie
Clowns ... always making people laugh but sad inside. No matter wot them feels, they know, the show must go on. Leo Sayer, The Show Must Go On.




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

Ere wot Maggie said:  Well done everyone! My choice is the B52s.version of Downtown.  Why? I think I will have fun getting the next link!

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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 329 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiph Fine Young Cannibals an Suspicious Minds. Lets see what we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done @skye613 with winning, your choice Fine Young Cannibals singing Suspicious Minds. That jogged my memory of Elvis Presley who sang that. My link is Elvis Presley (the King) and his film GI Blues where he sang Wooden Heart ❤. I humbly submit this offering.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was a song by the band Fine Young Cannibals…oh dear…I don’t think there could be anything fine about cannibalism…I have a preference for less challenging food…in fact I quite like just siting in front of the TV with my dinner on my lap…perhaps some nice lamb kibble…so this week my linky is TV Dinners by ZZ Top….yum….oh, and when we play ed the video there was a long musical advert at the start,…that is NOT our link.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week sky winned wiv Fine Young Cannibals and Suspicious Minds. FYG were a Birmingham band and so were UB40. They both covered songs which were also sung by Elvis so here is UB40 wiv Can't Help Falling in Love With You.




@terenceterrier
So how duss I find a linky from "Suspicious Minds" by Fine Young Cannibals? Well da vershun I noes best is da one by Elvis Presley. So I gonna use annuva song of his on da same theme "Suspicion".



@maggietkat
Well done with fine young canibal's cover of suspicious minds. Before the canibals was the beat. This is their cover of a motown song, Smokey robinson's tears of a clown.




@sonikebt
Well done @syke613 for winning with "Suspicious Minds" by Fine Young Cannibals. This week we don't have suspicious minds we have  Simple Minds so "Don't you forget about me".




@djladylexie
Suspicious Mind is a song about trust and intuition. Suspecting your partner of being unfaithful can ruin a relationship. Just ask Tammy Wynette. She knows all about  it coz she got a D I V O R C E! Sing it Tammy :).




An da winner as chosen by ............... Skye...................... dus be ..............................  Maggie wiv Tears of a Clown. Yay! You choosin next week me pal.

Ere wot Skye said: Super great tunes this week. And it was a toss up between #5 and # 7. In the end the beat  rolled on! #5 wins! Thanks Lexie and Mom. I sure appreciate playing!

Hello pals. Welcome to week 328 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was me wiv Shake A Tail Feava. Lets see what we gots this week:

@daisy_dor
Congrats to Maggie on da win last week, with Wilson Pickett's Land of a Thousand Dances. My link from dat song is Nutbush City Limits .... Wilson Pickett was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991, the same year as Ike and Tina Turner who sang dis fantastic song wot is not about bushes wiv nuts in, Tina also released a 90s version of the song in 1991 so double da bubble for you link dis week and takes your pick which version you prefer.






@cloonfourmegan
Last week clever Maggie won with Wilson Pickett and Land of a 1000 Dances. Now that was one of a number of covers of that song. Another cover was by the fantastically named Cannibal and the Headhunters. We not so keen on Cannibals so we pick I Eat Cannibals by Toto Coelo ... although if you eat a Cannibal don't that make you one too!




@terenceterrier
Larst week clever  kitteh pal Maggie winned wiv "Land of a Thousand Dances" by Wilson Pickett. I try extra hard dis week n find a linky / artist wiv SIX fings wot link da songs n artists.

Haz yoo guessed it yet ? Nope ? OK I tell yoo. It be "The Night Has a 1000 Eyes"  by Bobby Vee.




@skye613
Wilson Pickett recorded " Land of 1000 Dances" in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in his first set of sessions. He had previously recorded in Memphis. Memphis is the home of the one & only Elvis! The tune was also recorded before Picket by Cannibal & The Headhunters. How you ask can these 3 different things linky together? Well, here ya go! The Fine Young Cannibals doing a remake of " Suspicious Minds."   Enjoy.




@diamondbertie
Here is my entry, that clever @maggietkat won with Wilson Pickett singing Land of 1000 Dances. I immediately thought Bruce Springsteen with Dancing in the Dark, so many songs with dancing as the theme I chose this one.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie...last week our winner was Land of a Thousand Dances....that seems like an awful lot of dances to me....I suspect I only have stamina for one dance with my little legs...so in that case please can you Save the Last Dance For Me?...BOL...The Drifters of course.




@djladylexie
Last week was Wilson Pickett wiph Land of a Thousand Dances. I fink I will go wiv numbers coz I like numbers. So me goin wiv simple linky using the word a fousand .. wiv a founsand bootiful fings from Annie Lennox.

Well done with the Blues Brothers version of "Shake a Tail Feather". As with a lot of songs, artists changed lyrics but I happen to love this version.

I have a song which also has 60's dances. Wow! 2 links! This version is sung by Wilson Pickett who is out of the Mussel Shores studios, "Land of a Thousand Dances".

Hello pals. Welcome to week 326 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Megan wiv  Let see what we gots this week:

@daisy_dor
Well done Megan on another win on da chain and I very much enjoyed all the linkys. This week Megan's link allows me to link yo my most favourite song "Mahna Mahna" also by the Muppets. Why? Cos it is a song to indicate it has gone 5pm on a Friday fanks to Mr Simon Mayo which means humum is coming home and da weekend starts. Plus it do make me laugh.




@maggietkat
wonderful link with the Dancing Bear. I have loved the Muppets for years and always looked forward to their musical numbers. Some of their best are covers of famous songs. My link this week is "Bohemian Rhapsody" whether by the Muppets or Queen. The Jim Henson studio did an incredible job recreating the Queen video, so please check Queen's out as well.




@diamondbertie
What else to do on a wet, windy Sunday than ponder on your chain. @cloonfourmegan chose and won with the Muppets and Simon and His Amazing Dancing Bear, this made me laugh and put me in such good humour I had to choose Bare Necessities from the film Jungle Book.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week Lady Megan won with a song from the muppet show. The Muppets have had very many famous musical guest stars over the years…we looked up the Billboard top 10 list of the best of those guests and the one I think liked the most was Elton John signing Muppet Crocodile Rock with the cast…




@terenceterrier
Larst week Megan give us "Simon Smith and His Amazing Dancing Bear" from The Muppet Show. Corse everyfur noes dat dis show be fronted by Kermit the Frog. So for my linky I looks for songs wiv frogs. Corse it has to be da hit by Paul McCartney and The Frog Chorus "We All Stand Together".



@sonikebt
Well done @CloonfourMegan for the win with "Simon smith and his amazing dancing bear. This week we are going with a dancing theme with our link "Wake me up before you go go" by Wham.




@djladylexie
Aww we loves Da Muppets! Well let me see .. my linky does be Big Bird from Sesame Street. What? How dat you asks! Well, Jim Henson created The Muppets who starred in the hit show The Muppets. Frank Oz was the puppeteer behind many of the muppets. The Muppets went on to star in Sesame Street, a children's TV show. One of the most famous stars of Sesame Street dus be Big Bird. Big Bird is a ... well ... err a big bird! Frank Oz was offered the part of Big Bird but declined as he didn't like performing full body characters. Frank Oz was also in Blues Brothers. Blues Brothers sang a song called Shake Your Tail Feather which is about shaking your behind to da music.  Some, bend over and let me see you shake your tail feather.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Megan...................... dus be .............................. piffle! Is me again. Me dad will dus the choosin fanx you.

Ere wot Megan said: It has been really lovely judging this week with so many muppet references. Mum still has her vinyl album of Muppet Show hits and do indeed model herself on Miss Piggy! Anyhoo ... we did love all the detail about Big Bird and we do love shaking our tail feathers so we chooses Linky 7!

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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 325 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Sonic wiv Auld Wives. Let see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with Auld Women. I am going with the opposite, young lads. My choice is from the movie "Mama Mia" based on the songs of ABBA. Here is the incomparable Christine Baransky in the scene "Does Your Mama Know?".




@diamondbertie
@sonikebt won with Bear's Den singing Auld Wives. This is a song of yearning and lost love ❤. This put me in mind of an old song from the late 1960s by Peter Sarstedt singing Where Do You Go To My Lovely it's a beautiful timeless piece.




@claptonterrier
last week Mr Sonic chose a song he  said was inspired by an odd rock formation…the oddest rock formation we have come across is The All Sports Band.  Sound engineer Tracy Coats (Frampton Comes Alive) came up with the genius/crackpot idea of a heterosexual, sports-based Village People. The result was the All-Sports Band, which featured a boxing drummer, a football and baseball player on guitar and bass, a race car driver keyboard player, and a karate kicking singer. What could go wrong? Here is their “song” I Am Your Superman….! Oh dear….



@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sonic won with a song by Bear Den. We love bears and this is our favourite song about a bear sung by our favourite muppets.




@skye613
I watched this vid many times. The one thing that I came away with besides a new found band with a great sound, was profound sadness. The kind of sadness that occurs when your loved one is losing their memory to a horrid disease. My linky this week " I Will Remember You".




@daisy_dor
Right after a couple of week away cos if a pesky pup, I'm back! The winner last week is not a song or band I know. So i put lateral finking caps on. Apparently the video for Auld Wives starred an actor Joseph Marcell. Now he played da butler in da programme Da Fresh Prince Of Bel Air. A programme wot starred Will Smith. So me link dis week is Men in Black by Will Smith, not cos of da song but cos it co-starred da fantabulous Tommy Lee Jones.




@terenceterrier
Larst week pals Sonic n Spike winned wiv Auld Wives by Bears Den. I woz upset by da offishul video cos it showed sumwun  wrecking a house , setting it on fire n then burning to deff. So I needs to redress da balance n find a happy cheerful song. Wot duss yoo find in a bears den ? Bears of corse ! N bears just wanna have fun when dey wake up from hibernayshun  n wants to celebrate dat da nasty hunters in Trump Land haven't shot dem while dey were asleep. So my linky gonna be Bing Crosby singing "The Teddy Bears Picnic".




@djladylexie
Auld Wives from Bears Den was the winner. I read that the song takes it's inspiration from a moving and personal ballad about the agony of watching a loved one suffering the sad and terrible Alzheimer's disease. One such artist is Glen Campbell and I honour him wiv one of me favourite tunes.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Sonic ...................... dus be .............................. Megan.

Ere wot Sonic  said: We have studied all the links very carefully and have chosen linky 4 coz we luvs a dancing bear.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 1st May

@maggietkat
Well done, Lexie! I am taking off on your folk song link and go to bluegrass. There have been many versions, including Bob Dylan and Ginger Baker, of this folk tune but you may recognize mine from the movie, O Brother Where Art Though.?  My link is , Man of Constant Sorrow.




@diamondbertieSkye Waulking song by Capercaillie was last week's winner my choice is keeping to tradition and folk songs. Bob Saget singing An Old English Folk Song.





@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week your winner carried on the Scottish theme with another song about Skye….it seems to me that the biggest  thing on the mind of our Scottish pals at the moment is their own independence …so this week our linky is a song about independence….Independence Day by Bruce Springsteen….



@terenceterrier
Larst week da svelte Lexie winned wiv "Sky Waulking song" by Capercaillie who be a Scottish folk band wot sing traditional Gaelic songs n fings. So for my linky to even fings up I looks for a traditional English folk ballad n chooses "Scarborough Fair" cos for sake of linkiness it has links to old Scottish ballad "The Elfin Knight". I gives yoo da Simon n Garfunkel long vershun wiv lyrics to enjoy.



@cloonfourmegan
Oooh I scratched my head to fink of Linky to your winning entry last week of Skye Waulking Song. In the end I chooses another Scottish song about wa(u)lking but not the beating tweed variety but the one you does wiv your legs.




@sonikebt
Congrats @Dogstoyevsky for winning the link with the "Skye Waulking Song" by Capercaillie sung by Karen Matheson, who lives in the same town as us.  We have chosen a song which was inspired by a local, unusual rock formation called Auld Wives Lift by a band which shares our town's name.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Twenty Third Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 323 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiv Tiger Mount Peasant Song from Fleet Foxes. REMEMBERS! CHANGE TO DEADLINE NOW MONDAY NOT SUNDAY COZ MUM USELESS. Let see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with Skye boat Song. Bertie described the song about the devastation of the Scots. I got to thinking about how 2 countries on the island of Great Britain could fight. I remembered the American Civil war. I have a negro spiritual about boats and war from that period, found by a music historian and recorded in the 1950's.  I chose Pete Seeger for this version and please sing along with "Michael Row the Boat Ashore".




@terenceterrier
Larst week Uncle Bertie winned n give us da Skye Boat Song by Kenneth McKellar. Dis be abowt da escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie to da Isle of Skye in a lickle sailing boat from da English forces. For my linky I going wiv annuva Scottish singer Rod Stewart n his song " Sailing" . I also keeping wiv da war theme n giving yoo da video of HMS Ark Royal.




@cloonfourmegan

Last week Bertie won with the very moving Skye Boat Song. We keep the theme of Celtic boat with The Irish Rover sung by the Pogues. Not as sad ... except where "the poor old dog was drowned"!




@sonikebt
Well done @diamondbertie for winning with "Skye Boat Song". We are sticking with the boat theme this week. Our choice is a song about living a simple, honest life with "Dignity" by Deacon Blue.




@djladylexie
Well done Bertie wiv Skye Boat Song wot relates to the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie who escaped to the Isle of Skye after defeat at Culloden. Considered a tragic hero of Scotland he has stood the test of time through history. I'm using Scottish heros as me feme this week and goin wiv one of me favourites Rob Roy. Rob Roy was made into a movie cunningly entitled Rob Roy. The soundtrack features Karen Matheson singer from the band Capercaillie. They also did a songa bout Skye Waulking (which is beating tweed).




@skye613
Why I love Lexieschain? Because I always learn something new! Did not know there was an island named after Me! And did you know that the common goldeneye is found on the Isle of Skye? My linky this week is Tina Turner & the theme from Goldeneye! Enjoy.




An da winner as chosen by ............... Bertie ...................... dus be ............................. oh ......... guess who! Yep ... me! Haha dad will be choosin.

Ere wot Bertie  said:  I've made my choice, a difficult one because all the links were lovely, I've settled for Skye Waulking Song by Capercaillie, I did not know it and I played it again and again. The song captures the culture of the islands, the haunting melody just caught the imagination of these islanders making the fabulous tweed they are famous for.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on MONDAY 17th April 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 Twenty Second Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 322 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiv Tiger Mount Peasant Song from Fleet Foxes. REMEMBERS! CHANGE TO DEADLINE NOW MONDAY NOT SUNDAY COZ MUM USELESS. Let see what we gots this week:

@claptonterrier
Last week our winner was by the band Bastille..so that immediately made us think about France...and as I am off to France and Belgium this weekend I thought I would see if there were any songs about Bastille Day...and of course there are...

So this week our linky is Bastile Day by Rush...not so much because we think it might win but more because we like the thought of our pals having to listen to some Rush....BOL!




@sky613
In 2011, Bastille self-released their second EP " Laura Palmer". In 1990, one of the top rated shows was Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks was a huge cult favorite, though it only lasted 2 seasons. It dealt with the question... Who Killed Laura Palmer. Our linky today is from the soundtrack of the show. All the music used on the show was original.




@maggietkat
Well done with Bastille's  . I thought about the Bastille and other great *cough* prisons. I seemed to recall this song going round "I dreamed a Dream". I looked it up and it was from some musical Les Misérables . So, that is my link.




@daisy_dor
Congrats to Sonic for winning da linky last week. Me dunno how some groups come up with their names, but the Bastille is a medieval fortress, armoury & political prison in Paris wot was famously stormed during the Frenchy revolution. Marie Antoinette was da last queen of da Frenchys and allegedly told peeps to eat cake if they not afford bread. Maybe not da best idea she ever had and she did laters have her head lopped off so mebbe dat proved the point. Still I can imagine her going to her death singing my choice of linky dis week ..... Edith Piaf - Non, je ne regrette rien.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sonic won with Good Grief and Bastille. That group made us think of France and all things revolutionary which takes us to  one of our favourite musicals and this stirring rendition from the film version.




@diamondbertie
Sonic chose Good Grief by Bastille, this is in a way a lament, my choice is another lament and if you listen to the words they are so sad, it's the Skye Boat Song sung by Kenneth McKellar. After the fall of the Jacobites at Colluden in 1745 Bonny Prince Charlie fled for his life. The revenge brought to the scots was unimaginable and terrible.




@terenceterrier
Larst week pals Sonic n Spike win da chainy wiv "Good Grief" by Bastille. Dat is summat wot peeps say when dey surprised. Annuva saying is "Goodness Gracious Me" .  There be a song of this name wot woz recorded by Peter Sellers n Sophia Loren to promote their film "The Millionairess" . More recently it woz covered by Rowan Atkinson n Pixie Lott so I gonna use dis video as my linky.




@djladylexie
Sonic did win wiv good grief by bastille. Hmmm well the Bastille was a fortress in Paris wot was erm ... well stormed by the people for the people wot was part of the revolution in France. The most notorious killing machine of the french revolution was the guillotine wot chops off your head especially if you was royal. One such person was Marine Antoinette. Lady Gaga duns a song about her so dat me linky wot is Lady Gaga and Marie Antoinette.




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

Ere wot Sonic said:  Thanks for all the great links this week - quite an eclectic mix. Our choice this week is link 6 - The Skye Boat Song. The reason we picked this one is because Flora MacDonald was born on the Isle of South Uist as was my lovely Dad.  Anything that reminds me of him and his beautiful homeland is always a good choice. As a fan of Twin Peaks we were very nearly swayed by link 2.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on MONDAY 10th April 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 Twenty First Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 321 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiv Tiger Mount Peasant Song from Fleet Foxes. CHANGE TO DEADLINE NOW MONDAY NOT SUNDAY COZ MUM USELESS. Let see what we gots this week:

@cloonfourmegan
Last week Skye won with Fleet Foxes and their Tiger Peasant song. Fleet Foxes also did a song about the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2008 as did these two some time earlier.




@diamondbertie
Last week Skye won with Tiger Mountain Peasant Song by Fleet Foxes. My choice this week is Island in The Sun by Harry Belafonte. The tenuous link is both songs hark back to a past that has joy and beauty.



@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was a song by the Fleet Foxes…fleet is another word for fast..although foxes are quite fast I do not think they are as fast as horses…so we googled to see if we could fond songs about a fast horse…but we did not find one…which is odd because your horse is not known for much except running fast…one might call them a one-trick animal…so this week our linky is “One Trick Pony” by Paul Simon.




@terenceterrier
We'd not come across Fleet Foxes before or their track "Tiger Mount Peasant Song" so needed to research. We learnt they were an Indie Folk music band and hailed from Seattle. We learnt that their name was chosen because it was " evocative of some weird English activity like fox hunting". The well known folk singer Judy Collins also comes from Seattle. She recorded " Fairwell to Tarwathe" which references another hunting activity - that of the whale. The YouTube version we chose as our linky is by Stan Frantz as the photography is beautiful ( and there is a lovely dog in it).




@daisy_dor
Congrats to Skye on da win last week with Fleet Foxes. This week I shall offers you Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. Why? Cos both bands hail from Seattle and have had the same record label. Plus it is an awesome song. So turn da volume up.



@sonikebt
Great link from @syke613 with "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" by Fleet Foxes. This song is a reflection on mortality & loss which Robin Pecknold wrote following the loss of his Grandpa. This reminded us of the song our niece listened to when she lost her Grandpa - "Good Grief" by Bastille.




@djladylexie
When I first read that I fort it was Mount Pleasant Song! haha. Mount Pleasant is the site of a massive post office sorting office in London. The post office is responsible for sendin letters and packages. When you send a letter to someone you need to make sure they live where you are sending the letter or it will get returned to sender. Hmmm I fink there might be a song about that! Heehee here is me linky Return to Sender from Elvis the Pelvis also know as Elvis Presley!




An da winner as chosen by ............... Skye ...................... dus be ............................. Sonic! Yay well done me pal. You be choosin next week!

Ere wot me Skye said: As always, wonderful links. We all love music and what it does for our souls. The link we chose this week is another example of the power of music in our lives. #6 is the one we chose. And thanks Lexie and Mom!

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on MONDAY 3rd April 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.
