Lexie's Chain: The Forty-Second Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to Week 42 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to Tucker (@bvfeyj) to choose da winner. So, last week da winning link was Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones! Let's see wot ideas come in dis week:

OK *Puts finkin cap on and furrows terrier brow in concentration* Need linky to follow on from “Sympathy for the Devil” by The Rolling Stones. *Sudden flash of inspiration* I shall keep with Devil theme and choose “Devil Woman” by *doffs cap* Sir Cliff Richard. There is also another theme linkin between the two tracks. “Sympathy for the Devil” was on the album “Beggars Banquet” . Beggars don’t have a lot of munny so have to get by on cheaper noms so there would be lotsa sossidges on offer at the banquet . When lil Harry wuz born (ie Cliif Richard) his Dad (Rodger Oscar Webb) wuz a manager for a catering contractor which supplied Indian Railways so there would have been lotsa sossidge noms on offer there too. So we haz a sossidge connection too. Furvermore there is a well known recipe called Devilled Sausages which brings both bits of the linky themes together *looks smug*.

Udo Lindenberg & Eric Burdon "Verdammt wir müssen raus aus dem Dreck / We Gotta Get Out of This Place" Why? Udo Lindenberg covered in 1978 "Sympathy for the Devil" from the Rolling Stones and " We Gotta Get Out of This Place" from the Animals on his album "Lindenbergs Rock Revue". The Animals got big in the 60ies like the Stones and both bands were pioneers of the international rock music. So was Udo Lindenberg for the German rock music. He turned 65 but still is making music and touring like the Stones. Rock never retires! Hehe, I think I won't have a chance with it but I like the German lyrics. =;X)

Sympathy For The Devil is one of the bangingest tunes ever! In hommage may I suggest 'Moves Like Jagger' by Maroon 5 featuring C. Aguilera. Connection is obvious, and not at all clever, but is a great, great song and gives us a chance to look at Mick two weeks on the bounce! BOL x 1000! Love to you all you Chainsters, xxx

Funny how I have been humming "Sympathy for the Devil" all week! When I think of the Stones, my mind boggles at the possibilities, then I remember one of the best covers of a Stones song, "Start Me Up". I have no thread other than it is a cover version, and I laugh so hard every time I hear it. The cut is performed by the Folksmen who may be known to some as Spinal Tap, both imaginary bands. This did not make it into the film "A Mighty Wind", but is on the soundtrack. The version I have is actually from the Unwigged and Unplugged Tour. Thank you Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, and Sir Christopher Guest.

Sympathy for the Devil opened side 2 of Get Yer Ya Yas Out by the Rolling Stones, the first live album to reach no 1 in the UK album charts and Ya Ya Toure is out playing regularly for Man City, who are currently number 1 in the premiership, and run out to their anthem Blue Moon which the Marcels (amongst other artists) took to number 1 in the US and UK charts. So the linky is Blue Moon!

Rolling Stones are so huge my little brain struggled to cope with all the possible links to Sympathy for the Devil. Ok, here goes, Rolling Stones gather no moss but someone who did gather moss was Libertines lead singer Pete Doherty when he "hooked up" wif supermodel Kate Moss. Like Rolling Stones The Libertines are a bit ov a wild bunch and they have appeared in Rolling Stone magazine on numerous occasions. Mr Doherty is also considered to be a bit of a Devil and a lot of people "can't stand him" but others think he is misunderstood so hav sympathy for him. See wot I did there? My linky is, therefore, Can't Stand Me Now by The Libertines.

Dis week me linky is "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" by The Charlie Daniels Band. Why? "Cuz it also a song about da Debil ob course! Me mom LUBS dis song! Dat man can fiddle! "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" by The Charlie Daniels Band (live)

mick jagger from the rolling stones, dueted with david bowie on (the dreadful!) 'dancing in the street' (i know it was for charity, but really! )....anyway, the rolling stones sang about sympathy for the devil - you usually have to be dead to meet the devil & been very naughty on earth, so an apt song would be bowie's 'ashes to ashes' (which is said at funerals & also, that's all that would be left of you if you met the devil.....it's quite hot in hell apparently!!)

Last week's song was "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Rolling Stones and wefot about how dat song was really prominent in da book by Hunter S. Thompson, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and is also a line in da movie. Unfortunately da director of da film version, Terry Gilliam, couldn't afford the $300,000 for rights to da song, so he couldn't use it. So we do choose da "Viva Las Vegas" cover by The Dead Kennedys, which dus be in da movie instead.

“No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well...maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.”

This week I choose Daydreamer by Adele, because her first album woz called 19, and this is a track from it.

dis week we thawt tha chainey wuld be 'wee wee hours' by Chuck Berry but dis vershun wus sing songed wid Eric Clapton and Keith Richards uf dem Rolling Stones. we dus did choose dis because well, da Stones did play wif old Eric off and on a bit on da stage and so we did say what tha heck fire and if you was having sum sympathee fur dat deevel wots it thang yoo wuld probly but up in da wee wee hours too.

I has chosen The Cult wiv She Sells Sanctuary. Why? Sympathy for the devil was off of the stones album called Beggars Banquet. Beggars Banquet is also an English record label that started off life as a chain of record shops. One of da first bands wot they signed was The Cult so I chooses dis song coz of their lead singer dus av similar way of dancing to Mick Jagger on stage!

Da winner .. as chosen by ... Tucker ... dus be ...... Miriam (@rettetkaninchen) ... wiv ... We Gota Get Out Of This Place by Lindenberg & Burdon. Congratulations ma pal!
