Lexie's Chain: The Second Link

Well hello again ma pals! I can't believe it! Fanx so much for playin da chain wiv me for da first time. You has all made brilliant suggestions. As dis is da first real link in da chain I fort I would share all of da submissions wiv you.

As you will opefully recall, I dun da first link. I chose Ride A White Swan by T-Rex. You can see dat ere if you wants (I did add a video as well).

Well, here dus be wot you sended me for your suggeschuns:

  • @TheGoBros (da Griff) chose Good Riddance by Green Day. Why? Like White Swan it is one of the few rocks songs that doesn’t have any drums in it. 
  • @Tartan_Terriers chose Walk The Dinosaur by Was (Not Was). Why? Well what is a T-Rex after all? 
  • @Tartan_Terriers also chose A Town Called Malice by The Jam. Why? Both songs were in the Billy Elliot soundtrack. 
  • @Bridietheborder chose Way Down by Elvis Presley. Why? It was No 1 in the UK charts when Marc Bolan died (16 September 1977). 
  • @I_am_fuzzy chose Soft Cell’s Tainted Love. Why? It was originally done by Marc Bolan’s girlfriend, Gloria Jones. 
  • @Marleyterrier chose White Horses. Why? Another song about a white animal of course! 
  • @Borderpup chose Teenage Kicks by The Undertones. Why? John Peel was the first DJ to play Marc Bolan’s music on the radio. John Peel’s favourite record was Teenage Kicks. 
  • @Rettetkaninchen chose White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane. Why? Well it’s a white animal too!
Wow thems if all fantastics!! Now comes the hard part, I gots to choose one.  Hmmm let me  fink.  Ok - I dus choose Teenage Kicks by The Undertones from @borderpup.

The year: September 1993
The song: Teenage Kicks
Artist: The Undertones
