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:

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.

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.


PC version

I can't help myself. Young Frankenstein.

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.

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….

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.

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!
