Hello pals! Welcome to Week 44 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to me to choose da winner. So, last week da winning link was Chatanooga Choo Choo by The Andrew Sisters. Let's see wot ideas come in dis week:
Song dis week is Chatanooga Choo Choo by Andrews Sisters. Ok, dis song is about a train journey from New York to Chatanooga. Annuver song about train journey between 2 US cities (Chicago & New Orleans) iz "City of New Orleans" by Willie Nelson. As luck would have it Willie Nelson also lent some vocal support on Chatanooga Choo Choo when covered by Asleep at the Wheel on their Western Stanard Time album. Also, The Andrews Sisters covered a song called "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans" which also links them to my song choice which is "City of New Orleans" by Willie Nelson ;-)
Cat Stevens with "Peace Train" - Why? It's another great train song. Peace and love to you!
Me pick dis week duz be Mr. Bojangles by Sammy Davis Jr. Why? Da Andrews Sisters was bery famous and popular and set lots ob records (some still unbroken) and was bery influential and widely imitated. Dey recorded and performed wif many ovver artists and appeared on many major telebision shows. Before da Supremes dey was da most imitated female group. Dey appeared wif da Supremes on da Sammy Davis Jr. show where dey sang da Supremes songs and da Supremes sang da Andrews Sisters songs, den dey boaf togevver sang one ob Sammy Davis Jr's. So me picked dis in tribute to the multi-talented, ground-breaking, late, great Sammy Davis Jr. who brought da Andrews Sisters togevver wif da Supremes and united 2 ob da greatest and most influential female groups ob all time.
I thought of a link for Chattanooga Choo Choo - Chattanooga is in Tennessee and I thought of Sam Cooke's "Tennessee Walz".
'Elllo DJ Lady Lexie - I see you has won again BOL! We liked Chatanooga Choo Choo v. much and fort we wud send a link about anovva Sisters band, but all be could come up wiv was da Nolan Sisters and dey is too awful for werds, so instead we fort TRAINS! Wot about Slow Train To Dawn by The The feat. Nenah Cherry? Dad takes dat train to London every day BOL! Good luck Chainsters! xxx
we dus did go wid Tony Bennet's, I left my heart in San Francisco becuase the Andrews Sisters did singy wing it too and well dey both dus hav cities in da titles and we dus thinky it is a purdy song. We dus says is a great song by an oldie but a goodie (dat is wot mum dus says)... hee hee
Chatanoogoo choo choo by the Andrews sisters makes me think of Wichita Lineman by the wonderful Glen Campbell who also sung Rhinestone Cowboy. Elvis da Presley wore a sparkly rhinestone suit and sang the wonderful Hugga Hugga Burning' Love AKA Burning Love and this dus be me entry.
Well dis week is difficult! We couldn't fink of a good linky, so we decided to pick anuvver best selling girl trio and decided on Wilson Philips singing 'Hold On'.
*Rush Rush Rush Puff Puff Puff* Linky to follow on from Chatanooga Choo Choo iz “Ticket to Ride” by The Beatles. Why ? Cos you need a ticket to ride on a train. Simples.
