Lexie's Chain: The Fifty-Eighth Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to Week 58 of #lexieschain.  Dis week was down to @diamondbertie to choose da winner, a hard task this week wiv so many great entries yet again! 

So, last week da winning linky was Sam Cooke, Where Is Your Heart. Let's see what da linkies was.

Well, Sam Cooke was a hugely talented singer who did meet an untimely end in a motel. Sadly, a few years later, annuver talented singer and songwriter did meet a simlar fate, and his name was Gram Parsons. Not a very plezzant link, but boaf made great music. So, we choose 'In My Hour of Darkness' by Gram, wiv Emmylou Harris (who he did discover). There issnt any videos, so here is da music wiv a picture!

My linky for this week is “Lady in Red” by Chris De Burgh. Rouge means Red in French so tenuous connection but it is nearly Valentines Day so want to dedicate my linky to my GF who has a lovely red coat.

Milord by Edith Piaf. Why? Edith started her career as a street singer and got discovered by the boss of Moulin Rouge. He brought her on stage and so her great success started in the famous Moulin Rouge.

Since the winning linky from last week is also known as “Where is your heart” we will stick with the heart theme (Valentines Day nearly here) and choose “Anyone who had a heart” by Cilla Black.

My choice this week is "I left my heart in San Francisco" by Tony Bennett. Why? Because it answers the question posed by the previous song "Where is your heart" and it was released around the same time as Sam Cooke sang the song in Moulin Rogue.

we dus be late sending dis in so we gonna go wid Whitney Houston 'My Heart is Calling' She dus be amazing woman wot did also have a sad life just like old Vincent and da Talouse. We do be howling at you, saying we will miss you Whitney.

My linky this week is "It's All Over Now" by the Rolling Stones. This song was written by Bobby Womack. The Womack Brothers were discovered on the Gospel circuit by Sam Cooke & signed by him then becoming The Valentinos. It's All Over Now was a 2nd hit for The Valentinos but it was a number 1 for The Stones.

Well - Sam Cooke sung a song called 'You were made for me'. The excellent Freddie and his Dreamers also sung a song of the same name and dis dus be our chain. We dus so love his dancing and saw on tv he sang it to Petra the dog on an early episode of Blue Peter too. Thus making it even more ace and valentiney.

Ok Sam Cooke, Where Is Your Heart, Moulin Rouge … Moulin Rouge was re-made as a moosical by Baz Luhrmann wiv Kylie Minogue as da green fairy in da Absynth. Kylie also dun a song about hearts .. Two hearts in fact so dat ma linky.

Last week da winner was Where Is Your Heart by Sam Cooke, so dis week me fink we gonna stay wif da heart theme kinda. Sam Cooke ask Where Is Your Heart and Tom Petty and da HEARTbreakers say "I Need to Know"! So me suggest "I Need to Know" by Tom Petty and da Heartbreakers! Love dat beat!
