Hello pals.! Welcome to Week 34 of #lexieschain. I dus hope you still be enjoyin da game! Dis week was down to me to make da decishun. So, now let's see wot ideas come in dis week:
The Shamen - Ebeneezer Goode Is song bout drugs but they pretending it ain't is about E excstacy! E¹s Are Good was a song disapproved of coz it did promote da use of drugs
Cocaine by JJ Cale, because I dint have much time to fink, it has a drug in da title, but it is an anti-drug song. Ahem, must try harder!!
ere is one for your link: Perry Como - Delaware - why it's so funny and clever there MUST be a link there somewhere!
My entry dis week is Divinyls wif I Touch Myself. Why? Coz Divinyls covered Love is the Drug by Roxy Music and coz the song is about loving someone a lot (or err, maybe lusting after someone a lot but dat wudn't help da link ;-)).
My entry for chain is "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" by Lennon /McCartney because shortly after the song's release in 1967 speculation arose that the first letter of each of the title's nouns intentionally spelled LSD. In a 2004 interview, Paul McCartney admitted that the song is obviously about LSD. So there is a ³drug² connection between the two songs. Also this record is on the album Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band so also a connection between ³Love² and ³ Lonely Hearts Club² because people looking for love will join a dating agency which is known as a Lonely Hearts Club.
When i saw 'love is the drug' i immediately thought of fuzzbox (or we've got a fuzzbox & we're gonna to use it (!!)) and their wonderful song 'love is the slug'..........................no

Mum has been racking her brains (did not take long) to try and think of a good & witty link in chain after Roxy Music, but we have drawn a blank (quel suprise as les chiens say). What if Bryan Ferry was wrong (unlikely says Mum) that Love is the Drug and in fact Love Is In The Air, sung by Rupert Everett and Colin Firth at the end of St Trinians Film. The connection is a bit lame, but the song should make everyone smile!
