Lexie's Chain: The Thirtieth Chain

Hello pals.! Welcome to Week 30 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to @rettetkaninchen to make da decishun. Let's see wot ideas come in dis week:

Dis week me cleverly links back to music me knows ;-) Me submit for your consideration da great Neil Young wif "Rockin' in the Free World"! Why? Cuz Queens of the Stone Age will be performing wif Pearl Jam dis Sept 3rd and 4th at Alpine Valley Music Theater and Pearl Jam recorded wif Neil Young (on album Mirror Ball), covered his song "Rockin' in the Free World", and hab eben performed it wif Neil Young. So dat da link! Neil Young wif "Rockin' in the Free World" 

My linky dis week is I Want You So Hard (Boy's Bad News) by Eagles of Death Metal. Why? Because Josh Homme was the founding member of both the QOTSA and EODM and dis is my favourite song from dat group and it haz a great video wif Jack Black & Dave Grohl in it ;-).

Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor Doctor)" by Robert Palmer. Dis b b/c wen you is Sick Sick Sick you dus need a Dr. Also...his las name has Palm in it an QOTSA dus be considered part of da Palm Desert music scene. So is linked two ways!

Eyes of green by Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan. This song is a collaboration between former Queens of the stone age singer, Mark Lanegan and former member of Glasgow band Belle and Sebastian, Isobel Campbell.

Sex on Fire by Kings of Leon. The QOTSA were going to call themselves Kings of the Stone Age but changed their minds as they didn't want to seem too macho. If they had stayed as Kings of the Stone Age they would have been one of three bands with the title Kings in their band name so I chose another band with Kings in the title – Kings of Leon – hence Sex on Fire!

An da winner as selected by @rettetkaninchen(aka Miriam an bunnies) dus be ...... @Zoetheborder. Yay! Well done! Brilliant linky! Miriam said: It's a funny deduction from QOTSA song to Robert Palmer and linked two ways. Well done, Zoe! =:X)
