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.

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. 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 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!

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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 343 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner wasme wiv Moody Blues an Forever Autumn. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with Moody Blues and Forever Autumn. First song I thought of was by Frank Sinatra (dad's favorite) but it was such a draggy song (kinda like what we do with our bums). Then another one of Frank's songs had promise since this one is introspective like mom in autumn. So, here is my link, for those in the autumn of our lives, the Turtles and "It was a very good year".




@terenceterrier
Larst week cleva DJ pal Lexie winned da chainy wiv da linky "Forever Amber" singed by da Moody Blues. One of da lines in dis songy be "My life will be forever amber because you're not there". In dat case he be saying "she's not there". Obvious innit ! Dis be da title of a favrit songy by The Zombies "She's Not There". But I gonna give yoo da vershun by Santana as my linky cos I likes da geetar playing on it. I hopes yoo enjoys it too.




@skye613
Congrats, dear Lexie! The original for " Forever Autumn was written in 1969 by Jeff Wayne for a Lego commercial. This is a no brainer for me. Linky this week.... " Everything is Awesome " from the Lego movie.



@cloonfourmegan
Last week our lovely Lexie won with the Moody Blues and Forever Autumn. That song was in the musical version of War of the Worlds but what is war good for ... absolutely nothing!




@diamondbertie
Your choice of the Moody Blues singing Forever Autumn is a lovely song my choice is Kirsty MacColl singing Thank You For The Days, it catches the sense of loss.




@claptonterrier
last week’s winners were the Moody Blues…which sounds rather gloomy doesn’t it? Anyhoo, we have selected a band with a much more cheerful and colourful name this week…the RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS! And our selection is their song “Californication”.




An da winner as chosen by ............... me dad    ...................... dus be  ..............................  Skye wiv Everything Is Awesome by erm well some lego people.

Ere wot me dad said: haha lego ... that's the one for me. (Lex edit: i fink me dad is tryin to make this really hard)

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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 342 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Megan wiv I Talk To The Trees by Clint Eastwood. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with Clint Eastwood croaking I talk to the trees. Eastwood's ability to sing has never been contested as not so good. I thought about other stars who can't sing. One of the most distinguished composer/singer is Leonard Cohen. Here he is growling out his most revered number, Hallelujah.




@diamondbertie
Last week Megan won with Clint Eastwood singing I Talk to the Trees from the film Paint Your Wagon. My choice is Rawhide from the film Blues Brothers. Why?  I remember Clint Eastwood in the western series Rawhide which the gripping theme hilariously reproduced in The Blues Brothers.




@claptopnterrier
Hello Miss LExie…last week our winner was a song by Clint Eastwood…he was a cowboy imagined by Hollywood…so this week our linky is a song about cowboys but this time imagined by Tin Pan Alley…or what ever the Los Angeles equivalent of Tin Pan Alley is…its “Desperado” by the Eagles.




@skye613
So today's linky is following Clint Eastwood. Sure didn't know that he was as accomplished as he was musically. Oscar nominations for several scores he wrote. But we are focusing on his directing skills. Eastwood directed the movie Jersey Boys. The film was an adaptation of the Broadway musical about the Four Seasons. Enjoy "Oh, What a Night".




@terenceterrier
Clever clogs Megan winned wiv da linky "I talk to the trees " sung by Clint Eastwood . Our furst memories of him woz when he woz da character Rowdy Yates in da TV series "Rawhide" . It started in 1959 n woz fillumed in Arizona. For my linky I going wiv a songy abowt annuva singing cowboy from Arizona wot woz released as a single in 1959. I pawroudly presents yoo wiv "Ragtime Cowboy Joe" by The Chipmunks. Go Alvin !




@djladylexie
I like trees. They dus give good shade in the summer an then in the autumn you can play in their leaves wot dus rustle an has little creatures living in em wot I can chase. Autumn is a lovely time of year init? So, here me favourtest song wot talks of autumn. It has always ad two meanins of course, the loss of someone you love.




@sonikebt
@CloonfourMegan's winning song last week was "I talk to the trees" sung by Clint Eastwood. This song comes from the musical Paint Your Wagon by Lerner & Lowe. Our link this week comes from Lerner & Lowe's first film adaptation, Brigadoon with a version sung by Frank Sinatra - "Almost like being in love.




An da winner as chosen by ............... Megan   ...................... dus be  .............................. oh pantaloons!! ..... is me again piffle! Dad choosin then oh dear he will be happy teehee.

Ere wot me Megan said: Wot a great range of linkys this week. Everyone do have had excellent finking caps on.  Mum do be big fan of musicals so was good to see a few of those. We does like cowboys too. But in the end we chose Linky 6 cos it be nearly autumn and we lubs trees and Moody Blues be Dad's favourite group!

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 28th August 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.

@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sonic won wiv Gorillaz and Dirty Harry. Now this be about Clint Eastwood and the great man has been known to sing a bit as well. So we choose him singing I Talk To The Trees from Paint Your Wagon.




@maggietkat
Well done Sonic with Dirty Harry. I have a double link today. I went Dirty and found a movie "Dirty Deeds". I remembered the jewel "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" by AC/DC.




@djladylexie
Dirty Harry is Harry Callahan a fictional San Francisco police detective played by Clint Eastwood. Dirty Harry is known for his tough approach and of course his gun, the Magnum 44.

Well done Lexie with Cyndi Lauper has been an advocate for LGBTQ rights. She has also inspired many musicians. Identical twins Tegan and Sara are among those who have looked to Cyndi's musicianship and stance for LGBTQ . This is one of their relationship songs, Speak Slow.




@sonikebt
Well done Lexie with "Time after time" by Cyndi Lauper. The title of this song comes from  the 1979 science fiction movie of the same name. This inspired us to think of other songs named after movies and came up with "Dirty Harry" by Gorillaz.
