Hello Lady Lexie…last week our winner was Mr Blue Sky….we need a good idea for our linky this week…..and i believe that blue sky thinking is also a way of saying look for a great idea….so this week our linky has to be “Me and My Big Idea” by Tears for Fears.
Clever Oscar won last week with the Electric Light Orchestra such great choice my choice is in keeping the the theme of the sky with the Beatles and their song Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds from the album Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club. This song caused quite a furores because it was believed to promote recreational drugs namely LSD.
Last week Oscar wins for the first time (yay) with ELO and Mr Blue Sky. Jeff Lynne was key member of ELO but also other bands like the Travelling Wilburys and back in the day The Move. So we pick a great Move song which was the first song to be played on Radio 1. We gives you Flowers in the Rain!
Well done Sir T with “Mr Blue Sky”. The lyrics describe longing that the blue sky will come through. My link is about longing to be home and the journey there. I also chose a song with Blue, written by Roy Orbison which became Linda Ronstadt's signature song, “Blue Bayou”.
Great tune, Oscar! So we are staying with Blue Skys for our linky this week. The super U2 and " Bullet In The Blue Sky" Rock On Pals!
Well done Oscar on joining da elite wiv a winning linky wot be "Mr Blue Sky" by da ELO. Dis songy woz writ by Jeff Lynne. He had been in a Swiss chalet n weather been grey n miserable. When da sun suddenly appeared it got da inspawrayshun for dat song. I similarly get my inspawrayshun for my linky from dis. I give yoo "Here Comes The Sun" by George Harrison.
