Lexie's Chain: The Forty-Seventh Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to Week 47 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to @kelsoterrier to choose da winner.

So, last week da winning link was Rio by Duran Duran. Let's see wot ideas come in dis week.

Oh I fort also I tell you dat I list them in order of how them come in and also when da winner selects the next winner, they dussn't know who it is, coz of I take they names off!

Doin my linky quick before I forgets my spark of inspirayshun. Last week the winna wuz the track Rio by Duran Duran. Rio wuz a boat so I look for anuver boat song. I choose “Day-O / Banana Boat Song” by Harry Belafonte

Rio is a song about both a boat and a place – Rio De Janeiro which is the capital of Brazil. So I chose Brazil by Geoff Muldaur wot dus be used in the film Brazil by Terry Gilliam. Simon Le Bon dreamed of sailin and wrote da song for it – Rio. Like Simon, Sam in Brazil dreams of a place where life is perfect and he can live the life he dreams of.

I choose 'the lost girl in the midnight sun' by the lilac time. the singer stephen duffy was a founder member of duran duran before they became famous, and before simon le bon bon joined.

After much pondering for link to follow “RIO” by Duran Duran I finally decide that because RIO was a yacht I am staying with the sea faring theme. The Sutherland Bros Band released an album called “Lifeboat”. One track on this album was “Sailing”. This was also recorded by Rod Stewart for his album “Atlantic Crossing” so I am choosing his version as the link this week.

So we have Rio by Duran Duran... Ok, we going for Queen cause both Duran Duran and Queen have drummers called Roger Taylor! Queen performed at the first ever Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro in 1985 so thats the link, now the song... Tie your mother down by Queen. ;)

@bvfeyj (Tucker)
"Too Shy" by Kajagoogoo. Why? Cuz we can't pronounce it! BOL But really cuz was produced by Nick Rhodes ob Duran, Duran. So dat me linky!

Hello - well we start with Duran Duran's RiO which is of course, a river songy. Another rivery song do be Robbie Robertson - Somewhere down the Crazee river. Continuing with the watery theme the next link do be Jimmy Cliff and his Many Rivers to cross (also by Culture Club but we won't mention dat!) and so to my last link and my ansa: Jimmy Cliff-Wondeful World Beautiful People. Cos that's all of us.

Rio Grande by Dave Alvin - why? Nice song which has Rio in it's title and the words "Rio Grande" are in the song by Duran Duran RIO
