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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 367 of Lexie's Chain. Last week da winner was Maggie wiph Born To Be Wild, Steppenwolf. Let's see what we got this week:

@skye613
"Born To Be Wild" became the anthem for motorcycle fanatics and for the unbridled joy of riding a bike. Harley Davidson cycles have adopted this as their motto!   " Live to Ride Ride to Live."  My linky this week Twisted Sister. " " Ride to Live Live to Ride!"




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Maggie dud win wiv great biker song Born to be Wild. This was originally written by the fantastically named Mars Bonfire! We likes another singer called Mars but it be in his surname so we picks Bruno Mars and The Way You Are.




@claptonterrier
last week our winner was born to be wild…ahem….I think I am far too polite to be considered wild so this week I have been looking for a song about good manners…and so this week my linky is “You’re so pretty"….by the Charlatans….




@terenceterrier
Larst week Miss Maggie put her name on da scoresheet wiv "Born to be wild" . If yooz born to be wild yoo be a wild one. Dat be good anipal logic I fink. So for my linky I chooses " Real Wild Child ( Wild One ) " by Iggy Pop.




@limeoscar
Oh Maggiekat what are you doing to us with the great Born to be Wild, evocative of driving down the highway with the wind through our fur! Except we don’t really have the open highways here, rather the open moors, which puts me more in mind of Kate Bush as she sings of Heathcliffe in Wuthering Heights, so this does be our linky.




@sonikebt
Last weeks winning song was “Easy Rider” by Steppenwolf as chosen by @MaggieTKat. This scene from Easy Rider was used by the Coen Brothers to advertise a Mercedes at the Superbowl in 2017. So this week as our link we have chosen a song used by the Coen Brothers in The Big Lebowski “The Man In Me” by Bob Dylan.




@djladylexie
Born To Be Wild was a Steppenwolf hit. Steppenwolf got their name from the novel Der Steppenwolf wot  was written by Hermann Hesse. The novel got it's name from the steppe wolf. So, me linky is wolf songs and here is one from da eighties Duran Duran, Hungry Like The Wolf.




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

Ere wot Maggie said: Great links all eclectic like me! I chose “You’re so pretty"….by the Charlatans. I liked the singer's Flying Burrito Brothers shirt, interesting tune but I don’t think the song is about prim and proper, um, stuff.

@maggietkat
Well done Clapton with Meat Loaf doing Bat Out of Hell. When I think of Meat Loaf, I picture him as Eddie with motorcycle in the Rocky Horror Picture Show movie. And when I think of motorcycles I think of the movie “Easy Rider” and the opening song “Born to Be Wild” by Steppenwolf.

@skye613

Hello pals. Welcome to week 365 of  Lexie's Chain. Last week da winner was Megan wiph Fat Sam's Grand Slam from Bugsy Malone. Let's see what we got this week:

@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was Fat Sam’s Grand Small….now I believe that a grand slam is a baseball term for when a batter hits the ball a long way and allows three of his teammates on base to also score runs…so scoring four runs in all with one big hit…well talking of the larger gentleman who is keen to see something leaving at high speed our linky this week is Meatloaf’s Bat out of Hell!




@maggietkat
Well done Megan with Fat Sam's. Fat Sam’s is a hangout for all kinds of folks. I thought about places to hangout with those you love. My mind went to warm places during the winter. I chose “Kokomo” recorded by The Beach Boys.

Hello pals. Welcome to week 364 of  Lexie's Chain. Last week da winner was me wiph The Untouchables from Ennio Morricone. Let's see what we got this week:

@skye613
DJ Lexie scores! Staying simple & easy this week. The tune to link to is the theme to the movie " The Untouchables". Well, if you are single & untouchable, you might be Eminem! " Untouchable ".




@terenceterrier
Larst week Dame Lexie winned wiv da feem toon from da film The Untouchables. Dis film woz based on real happenings involving da FBI special investigayshuns team and da well known criminal Al Capone who woz involved in booze related crimes during da US prohibishun back in da 1920's. So for my linky I gives yoo a Michael Jackson live vershun of "Al Capone".




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Dame Lexie did win wiv Untouchables Theme Tune by Ennio Morricone. He did also write theme tune for the film Bugsy which we think starred Warren Beatty as Bugsy. But we prefer the musical of Bugsy Malone and this song Fat Sams Grand Slam.




@maggietkat
Well done Dame L with the theme for the untouchables. This movie was based on the life of prohibition agent Eliot Ness. Ness busted up all da joints in Chicago n Cleveland. I tought about da music in doz joints. I'se modernizin' one of da songs by Fats Waller, sung by Leon Redbone who is a man of mystery.




@claptonterrier
Hello Lady Lexie….last week our winner was the theme tune from The Untouchables….one person who was less concerned with being untouchable was Prince…and this week our linky is his song Kiss…he’s like our extra time and our…kiss!

Lexie's Chain; The Three Hundred and Sixty Third Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 363 of  Lexie's Chain. Last week da winner was Terence wiv From Russia With Love from Matt Monroe.. Let's see what we got this week:

@maggietkat
Well done Sir T with ”From Russia with Love”. James Bond was a spy who always got his man which makes him a superhero in my book. I remembered one of my favorite telly superheros, Batman. This is the tv theme from the 60’s.




@claptonterrier
Our winner last week was a song from a film …a song written especially for that film…so this week we decided to ave as our link a song that was not written for a film but which eventually became a film….there are a surprising number of these in fact…but our selection is the song Jack & Dianne by John Mellencamp …this song about a couple of high school sweethearts was written in 19882 but the movie inspired by it was not released util 30 years later in 2012 ….the song does not even appear in the movie…!



@cloonfourmegan
Last week Terence won wiv From Russia wiv Love sung by Matt Monroe. Our favourite Monroe is Marilyn and our favourite jewels are diamonds and they are a dogs best friend apart from noms obvs!




@skye613
Based on Sir Sean Connery's recommendation, Terence did win with a super tune " From Russia With Love ". Connery is an avid proponent of Scottish independence as is another well-known artist, Stuart Murdock, the frontman for Belle and Sebastion.  As evidenced by the vote on September 18, 2014, neither was in sync with "The Party Line".




@limeoscar
So the pawsome Sir T gave us Matt Monroe with the Bond theme . . . coz who dusn’t love a bit of 007, right?  Well, actually, US President JFK named From Russia With Love one of his all time top ten favourite books in a Life magazine interview.  In this month in 1962 it was JFK’s inauguration & celebrated African-American  contralto, Marian Anderson, sang the National Anthem at the ceremony. Marian was an active supporter of the civil rights movement and probably best known for the Lincoln Memorial Concert (the 1939 documentary of which was preserved in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress), having been denied access to sing in public buildings because of her colour.  Here she is from that 1939 concert singing ‘My Country, ‘Tis of Thee’, a popular American patriotic anthem of the time, although you may recognise the tune.




@djladylexie
in Russia Wiv Love the Bond girl is Tatiana Romanova played by Daniela Bianchi. She also starred in a movie called O.K. Connery an Italian spaghetti spy film starring James Bond's bruvva. Interestingly the role is played by Sean Connery's actual brother - Neil Connery. The music for OK Connery was composed by Ennio Morricone. My linky dus be Sean Connery and Ennio Morricone so I give you The Untouchables Feem Toon - the movie starred Sean Connery and Morricone composed the feem toon.



An da winner as chosened by Terence dus be me! Yay! So dad dus be the choosin one next week.
       
Ere wot Terence said: Fanks yoo for da 6 linkies my pals. Dey be very well researched dis week I haz to say. After much deliberayshun *mutters n in da absence of food hampers* I chose linky 6 as da winner - da feem toon from The Untouchables.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 22nd January 2018 (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!

@sky613

Murray Head's brother Anthony Head is also an accomplished artist. This week I linky the brothers' song, " Wish I Could Stay" from the  TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This tune was a part of the only musical episode " Once More With Feeling".

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Sixty First Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 361 of Lexie's Chain.Last week da dinner was Maggie wiv Don't Cry For Me Argentina from Madonna Evita. Let's see what we got this week:

@terenceterrier
Larst week Miss Maggie winned da chainy wiv "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" sung by Madonna. Dis songy woz from da moosical writted by Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber and notable in dat it woz one of a number of his songs which were hits in their own right. Annuva such song iz "Memory " taken from his moosical "Cats" ( appawriate doncha fink since Miss Maggie be judging) and dis be my linky as sung by Elaine Paige who woz da original Grizabella in da show.




@diamondbertie
My first entry for this year La Bamba by Trini Lopez because Maggie won with Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, I wanted to stay with the South American mood.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Maggie won wiv Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Don’t Cry for me Argentina. This musical was initially released on vinyl before the stage show with Julie Covington singing Eva Peron. Julie decided because of her politics not to take the stage role which went to Elaine Paige who ended up much more famous. Anyway here is Julie in great 70s TV series Rock Follies.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was Don’t Cry for me Argentina…this was of course a hit song from the musical Evita…our linky this week therefore is another song from musical which achieved chart success…we have chose One Night in Bangkok by Murray Head…this was from the musical Chess, co-written by Sir Tim Rice who also had a paw in Evita….it made it to the top of the charts in many countries (although only no. 12 in the UK).




@sonikebt
@MaggieTKat won the chain with “Don’t cry for me Argentina” sung by Madonna.  Argentina did win the Football World Cup in 1986 even with the controversial “Hand of God” goal by Maradona in the quarterfinal against England. Now in the good old days teams who qualified for World Cup used to record a team song. We are going to chose our favourite World Cup song “Don’t come home to soon” by Del Amitri.




@djladylexie
Maggie wunned wiv Don't Cry For Me Argentina. Me linky is Madonna! What? Did you know dat there was a parody of this song called Don't Cry For Me Marge and Tina. The song was written and perfomed by The Goodies who were a 1970's comedy trio. They were quirky and very funny (at the time). Madonna dun a song called Erotica which is also famous in da UK for a misheard line that mentions Bill Oddie (one of The Goodies). The line goes: Bill Oddie, Bill Oddie, Put Your Hands All Over My Body - hehe is sposed to be Erotic, Erotic, Put Your Hands All Over My Body.





An da winner as chosened by Maggie dus be Clapton! Woop off to a good start me pal. So you dus be the choosin one next week.

Ere wot Maggie said: Amazing links that I had to thoroughly research. I have to say that musicals in general are not my preferred listening (Dad makes us..). However, I didn’t realize that One Night in Bangkok by Murray Head… was from the musical Chess, so I have to choose this. Big early MTV hit!

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 8th January 2018 (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!
