Lexie's Chain: The Twenty-Third Chain

Hello pals. Ow fings? Welcome to Week 23 of #lexieschain. Wow so many fantastic entries!! Fanx to ma lovely pal @kelsoterrier for drummin (ha ha) up everyone to join in! Dis week is down to me to make da decishun, so let's see wot ideas come in dis week:

Mungo Jerry's "In the Summer Time" link is Staring at the sun I am staring at the sky looking for the sun

I choose 'Ashtray Heart' by Placebo, cos it is from their album 'Battle for the Sun' (see what we did there?!). Any thing to make mum put away her U2 albums - they're driving me mad!

PJ Harvey - Rid of me. Harvey was tour support for U2 short after she released "Rid of me". "Rid of me" is the title counterpart of U2s "Gone" which is on the same album like "Staring at the sun".

I choose "summer in the City" by the Loving Spoonful. Both are all about getting the girl, just different generations.

I can see clearly now by Jimmy Cliff,its amazing lyrics,wif the line...a bright sun shiney day !! Baboom

Pinball Wizard by The Who. Because U2 say da Who one ob da influences for dere music and cause dey hab da lyrics

"I'm not just deaf and dumb
Staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind"

and Pinball Wizard hab da lyric "deaf, dumb and blind kid "
So dat da link! And dat me pick! Besides dat get us back to music mom knows! BOL

the Germans had a submarine called a U2 so it has to be Yellow Submarine by The Beatles :o)

My choce this week do be Wild Horses by the Sundays. Staring at the Sun is likely to makes you go blind. The Sundays had an album by name of Blind. On that record they duss cover of Wild Orses by the Rollin Stones wot we do rilly like.

My chain entry is...ta da...Sun in Your Eyes by Above and Beyond. (I hope I is doin it right!) xx

Followin on from U2's Starin at da Sun, I does suggest House of da Risin Sun by da Animals. Dis is cos it be about da sun an Animals n stuff! Uff Uff!

Blinded by the sun by The Seahorses why? Cos its about the sun and also mum and dad saw U2 pop mart tour in Edinburgh 97, they sang staring at the sun and The Seahorses were the support act.

I want to enter Discotheque by U2 cos da Staring at Da Sun song was on da album Pop and Discotheque is off dat album and it be a great song!

My choice iz Turning Japanese by The Vapors. Why? Because it iz rumoured that Staring at the Sun will make u go blind and it iz also rumoured that too much err, of the thing that makes u Turn Japanese will also make u go blind ;-) BOL!

And da winner chosen by ...... me (which was so hard to choose coz they was all fantastics)..... is .......@bvfeyj (aka Tucker) wiv:

The year: 1969
The song:  Pinball Wizard
Artist: The Who
