Lexie's Chain: The Fourth Link

Welcome to week four of da chain and oh my gosh I can't believe it (fink dere might be a song there heehee) we did av loads of fantastic entries!

So what woz the suggeschuns and who dus be da winner for dis week, I hear you arks. Ma pals Lily and Linnhe (who dus be @Tartan_Terriers ) has selected da link dis week coz of bein da winner last week. They sure had tuff time of it too and said to me dis: "please tell everyone that they were all great and we wanted to pick them all! (but that wouldnt work, would it?)" Ain't it true tho!!

Ok here we go wiv dus week's suggeschuns:

@RettetKaninchen chose Somebody Outside by Anna Ternheim. Why? In 2005 she covered "When Tomorrow Comes" from Eurythmics. It's on her "Shoreline EP". I picked this song "Better Be" from her album "Somebody Outside" because the song is also about moving on for me.

@CathyKeisha chose Blind Among the Flowers by The Tourists. Why? Because Annie Lennox & Dave Stewart were both in that band before da Eurythmics.

@MarthaTheWestie chose Let's Dance from David Bowie album Let's Dance! Why?
David Bowie Let's Dance album title/track title same as Eurythmics Sweet Dreams track from Sweet Dreams album/track title and also released 1983. 

@TheGoBros  chose Raise your Glass by Pink. Why? Cause........the music video for Sweet Dreams features a cow: and so does the music video for Raise your Glass :-p (ok....i know its a weird video, but it's the only one we could find wiph a cow in it!) 

@I_am_Fuzzy chose I'm Only Sleeping - The Beatles (a little known group from Liverpool). Why? I need to sleep to dream :o) 

@Pasikas chose Superstitious by Stevie Wonder. Why? Stevie played harmonica on There Must Be An Angel. Stevie Wonder is a Rhythm and Blues Legend. Rhythm being the core of Eurythmics. 

@TheTwiglet chose For All The Cows by Foo Fighters. Why? Because  Sweet Dreams has cows in the video and dis song bout cows!! 

@Kelsoterrier chose Down Under by Men At Work. Why? Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart The Catch and The Tourists - both of which make me think of Cricket and Australia (The Land Down Under). Down Under was a song by Men At Work. Men At Work make things (such as sweet dreams?).

@Millie_Dog chose Pineapple Head by Crowded House. Why? Pineapples are sweet and you dream in your head.

@Diamondbertie chose All I have To Do Is Dream by the Everley Brother. Why? Well it is a song about dreaming too!

@Marleyterrier chose The Tourist by Radiohead. Why? Annie Lennox was in band called The Tourists before dey becomed Eurythmics.

@Oz_theTerrier  chsose Writing on the Wall by Hazel O'Connor. Why? She appeared in a Eurythmics video and her music was released by Invisible Hands Music, of which naming of said company was inspired by original working title of the album on which Sweet Dreams appears.

@Borderpup chose Sweet Dream Baby by Roy Orbison. Why? Just to take fings in a different and praps more internashunal direction and of course those sweet dreams.

@DJladylexie (dat is me heehee)chose Toxic by Britney Spears. Why? Marilyn Manson did a cover of Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics. Manson’s version of the song was used in Britney Spears’ world tour called The Circus. Toxic was one of the songs from the Circus Tour.

And the winner ......... as chosen by @Tartan_Terriers  and suggested by @MarthaTheWestie....... is ........ Let's Dance by David Bowie.

The year: 1983
The song: Let's Dance
Artist: David Bowie
