Lexie's Chain: The Thirty-Third Chain

Hello pals.! Welcome to Week 33 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:

@bunnersandharvs (so funny!!)
We dus foller da rose cunneshiion and went wif 'moses supposes' frum 'Singin in da Rain' dey is happer dan dA sung last weeK sooz we fowt it wul be niCe ta go wit haPPy toone. it dus maKe mUm giggLe too cawz dey is so appy an dey'z paw r boozy tapin tOO. 

But day doo awso tawk bowtt dis guy mOses who finks his tows iZ rosEs so we did tHank dat was inerestin dat he suppuzed his tOez wur rooneous roZes. least dey do smeLl goodeR daN mooos huuuMans pAWz. hee hee

Start Wild rode Nick cave. After listening to this Nick was inspired to write about another murder ballad Down in the Willow garden. He recorded this Ballad as "the ballad of Robert Moore & Betty Coltrane." Which was about him murderin her. Yuk!

Anyways Robert Moore was a chap who recorded a song "Everythings Gonna be alright" but also recorded by the funny sounding Teegarden & Van Winkle (1971). Rip van winkle did like sleeps and this is a song about him! The end!!

Great Southern Land by Icehouse. Cos they are australian, so are Nick Cave and Kylie...they also used to be known as Flowers (pre 1981) and a rose is a flower!

@marleyterrier (by satellite phone from da deep desert!)
Ere is my link for da chain this week. Is "Call Me" by Blondie. Lady in the song you dun chose was called Elisa Day and she was ...ahem...a werkin girl. Call Me is also bout werkin girl and was featured in fillum called American Gigolo wot be bout a werkin boy!!

That's Not My Name by the Ting Tings because poor girl in Wild Rose is not being called her proper name either. (Like my mum who sometimes calls me by my human sisters name BOL).

the wild roses grew down the river - where you find a lot of fish, which is the name of the singer in marillion (it's probably not his real name). i choose their 1985 hit 'kayleigh' .......and kayleigh is scottish for kylie!! maybe.....ahem

Dis week I had to ask mum for some help, cos she is very old ;o). She says that grandma used to like a perfume called 'To a Wild Rose' wot was made by Avon (and she was a Avon laydee!). Now they has a tv advert wot dus have music in background called 'The Adventures of Pippi Longstrump' by Fear of Tigers (an we do admit we found it fru search engine!).

My entry dis week dus be "Love is the Drug" by Roxy Music. Roxy Music dus be linked to Nick Cave because his first band "The Birthday Party" did used to perform covers of der songs. It links to Kylie Minogue because she did do a cover version in 2007. Da fird link dus be dat Nick Cave an Bryan Ferry did bof appear on a compalayshun album of pirate songs wot be called "Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys". And dat also dus link to last week's winna, DJ Lady Lexie, because she dus haf a ship!

My link to Where The Wild Roses Grow iz "Used To Love Her" by Guns n' Roses. Why? Firstly because ov the Roses link and secondly coz it iz also a song about a man killing hiz girlfriend (in a humorous light hearted way ;-)).

An da winner .... as chosen by me ... dus be ....... oh it's so ard ... they is all brilliant ... but I gonna go wiv .... Zoe The Border wiv Love Is The Drug! Well done ma Hanibelle sista!
