Lexie's Chain: The Twenty-Fifth Chain

Hello pals. Ow fings? Welcome to Week  25 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to @marleyterrier to make da decishun, so let's see wot ideas come in dis week:

My song for the chain this week is Under the Boardwalk (the Drifters) cos Boardwalk is in the lyrics of both and it's a great song.

My entry dis week iz Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys. Why? Coz Sandy
dus make me fink ov da Beach (Boys) and the fireworks on da 4th of  July do cause Good Vibrations.

Dis week I say Soundgarden's 4th of July for two reasons. The first reason is obvious, dat was name of last song. Second is b/c we lub dem.

the eve of the war - jeff wayne/justin Hayward. the fourth of july is independence day in the u.s of a. 'independence day' is a filum about aliens coming to earth, as is 'war of the worlds'.

Courtney Pine – Chldren of the Ghetto. Courtney Pine like CC is a soprano sax player so we chose dis song because he plays da same sax as CC on dis one.

Tucker @bvfeyj
Dis week me is going in a different direction wif a weird one. Me pick is "Big Bad John" by Jimmy Dean. How you get dat? me hears you cry... Well, Bruce Springsteen did "Sandy" wif da E Street Band.

Da sax player for da E Street Band was Clarence Clemons aka "The Big Man" ( who did die recently). Jimmy Dean did Big Bad John about another Big Man (who died in da song) & Jimmy Dean died last year So dat da link - picked in memory ob big men in music. Dey big bof in stature and influence an dey was good men!

The name 'Sandy' immediately made mum fink of Sandy Denny (who had a lovely voice btw) and early on in her career sang wiv The Strawbs.  So we did decide to choose a later Strawbs song, 'A Glimpse of Heaven', wot was recorded when Rick Wakeman were a lad!

Edge of Glory by Lady GaGa. Cos Clarence Clemons the saxophone player who sadly died on 18th June he played on this song and had played with Bruce Springsteen and his band for many years.

And da winner ... as chosen by ... @marleyterrier is ....... Tucker @bvfeyj!

The song: Big Bad John
The year:1961
The artist: Jimmie Dean
