Lexie's Chain: The Forty-Ninth Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to Week 49 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to @kelsoterrier to choose da winner.

So, last week da winning linky was Pour Some Sugar On Me By Def Leppard. Let's see wot ideas come in dis week.

The only thing I can come up with this week is that 90% of you have dirty minds! Sugar on your mama indeed! So, here is a #nipclub favorite, "Dirty Minds" by Here Come the Mummies.

Def Leppard are from Sheffield as are the band we have chosen. We going with Pulp - Do you remember the first time? Mums last dog was called Jarvis after Pulps lead singer, Jarvis Cocker!

@diamondbertie and @bunnersandharvs
Bertie: My idea for this week's chain is Sugar Sugar by the Archies. Why, I am ignorant about music so I use the the noun sugar in the title to be the link, and this song make me smile.
BunnersandHarvs: this week we thort we wuld go on wid da cleva kelso ta sayz r chainy iz 'Sugar, Sugar...' by da Archies (linky iz here) cus we dus luv all r candy girls on da tweety deck and we dus think eva one on da deck is a honey honey too!! hey let's dancy to da tuny woon.... oh sugar ah, honey honey.... poor a little sugar on it honey! 

Ok, dis week iz Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard. Well if u pour sugar on stuff it makes it Sweet. A leopard (Leppard) iz an animal and so Iz a Fox (Grrr, bark, bark). So my linky dis week iz (The) Sweet with Fox On The Run (yeah, ud better run Mr Foxy! Grrr ;-). Linky to video (bring back TOTP! but err maybe not da 70's fashion ;-) 

Using the word SUGAR to link from this week’s selection “Pour some sugar on me” to mine which is the song “A Spoonful of Sugar (makes the medicine go down) “ from the Walt Disney film Mary Poppins & sung by Julie Andrews.

To follow on from “Pour some sugar on me” this week for my link I shall inject a bit of class into the proceedings and select “The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” which was composed by P. Tchaikowsky with the glass armonica in mind . William Zeitler uses this instument & has this piece is on his album “Crystal Christmas” so is an appropriate seasonal selection too.

I choose Cream by Prince. Like Pour Some Sugar On Me, Cream is about sexy fings wiv a lady! And Cream has got Sugar in it! Oh and Prince is like a mini-leopard in all his leapardy leggins! Simples!!

Moving on from the wonders of Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar on Me, my linky is of a sweet nature. I've chosen Brown Sugar by The Rolling Stones. The Rolling Stones are also tenuously linked to my mum, as she went to Dartford Girls Grammar School where as Mick Jagger went to the Boys' version across the road.

@bvfeyj (Tucker)
Dis week me nominates "Cold As Ice" by Foreigner. Why? Last week we haz Def Leppard which is English band formed in 1977 & has many links to lots ob uvver groups. Foreigner was formed in 1976 by an Englishman but half ob da band was American while half was English which is why he named dem Foreigner. Dey also hab lots ob links to uvver groups. How dey link togevver is dat in 2007 dey did tour togevver in U.S. & Canada for da two disc deluxe edition re-release ob Def Leppard's "Hysteria"album which contained "Pour Some Sugar On Me" (see how dat link? hehehe). It was also the 30th anniversary ob da release ob Foreigner's debut album from which we get "Cold As Ice". So dat link boaf bands and boaf songs!
