Lexie's Chain: The Thirty-Seventh Chain

Hello pals.! Welcome to Week 37 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to Rossi Dog to choose da winner.  Wow, so many entries again dis week! So, last week da link was Elvis Presley, Viva Las Vegas. Rossi Dog ad no idea who picked wot linky! Let's see wot ideas come in dis week:

Yesterday by The Beatles. Why? As Elvis Presley played his show in Las Vegas he covered and performed "Yesterday". Elvis is the most successful solo artist with over 1 billion sold albums and The Beatles are the most succesful band with over 1,5 billion albums. And they both are musical pioneers.

elvis presley starred in 100's of filums, his best being the one he wasn't actually in...the johnny cash biog 'walk the line' i chooses johnny cash & 'hurt'.

My entry dis week is Rush wif Roll The Bones. Why? Coz Vegas is best known fur gambling and in some casino games like craps u hav to roll the bones (or throw the dice). Also the King sang a song called Fools RUSH In so dis links wif da band name ;-).

My mum and dad got married in secret in Las Vegas. But when they came back they did have a party and a first dance. Of course it was Viva Las Vegas but they wanted a smoochy one too so Viva Las Vegas became (do you DJs called segued or something like that??) Moon River sung by Andy Williams. So that is the link ... !

@bvfeyj (Tucker)... last week we did hab da King wif "Viva Las Vegas" from da moosical ob da same name... so dis week me finking annudder song from a moosical "Guys and Dolls" by da "Chairman of the Board". Me submit "Luck Be a Lady" by Frank Sinatra. It also about gambling and Mr. Sinatra often performed it in Las Vegas besides. 

Ok, we gonny choose Biffy Clyro - Mountains. Why? Cos Elvis briefly landed in Prestwick, Ayrshire in 1960, the only time he ever set foot in Britain. biffy Clyro come from Kilmarnock which is also in Ayrshire. Elvis also sang about some mountains... You gave me a mountain and Theres gold in the mountains. ;)

I have a link!! Kay Starr - Wheel of Fortune. Why? Viva Las Vegas is about gambling roulette etc BTW I love Viva Las Vegas

I thought & thought about Elvis & Las Vegas & realized I could now bring you all down here to Florida.

Elvis made "Viva Las Vegas in 1964. In 1962 he made the movie "Follow That Dream". He shot part of that movie in Inverness, Florida, a very small town near an even smaller town called Floral City. My girl used to live in Floral City.

The Bylaws of the State of Florida insist that JImmy Buffet must be mentioned in any and all stories about Florida. Buffett owns half the state by default. He's saving up to buy the other half. ..Not really but it sure seems that way.

Anyway, in 2006 Buffett released the album "Take the Weather With You" that contained the song "Elvis Presley Blues", a tribute to T he King on the 33rd anniversary of his death.

So put it all together, Elvis + Florida + Jimmy Buffett and you get my nomination: "Floridays", Track 6 from Buffett's "Floridays" album, released in 1986. 

Viva Las Vegas was the title track from an Elvis Presley film of the same name. The choreographer for that film was David Winters who also did West Side Story. So I’m going to choose a song from that film as my linky which is “Somewhere” (No – you’re absolutely right there’s no more clever associations to be had between this song and the previous one – I just happen to like it.)

Viva las Vegas was the title track for a movie Elvis and Ann Margaret made in 1964. The Beatles were making the America tour that year. I found a link where the Beatles did Vegas in 1964.  Since The Beatles came to Vegas, I believe their #1 song in the US should be the link, I Wanna Hold Your Hand. 

Elvis Presley was in las vegas for a long time playin at da featre an like Elvis annuva great star wat was at Vegas a long time was Tom Jones who was also very sexy like Elvis. So I dus choose Tom Jones – Sex Bomb!

An da winner .... as chosen by Rossi Dog  ... dus be ......Sex Bomb by Tom Jones from @djladylexie .... oh ..... me again! Fix, fix!! heehee. I swear it ain't ma fault!! So, is time again get your finkin caps on an send me (find out how on da guidelines page fing) the next link in the chain. Da winner dis week dus be pickin da winner next week and dat means me!!
