Lexie's Chain: The Fifty-Seventh Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to Week 57 of #lexieschain.  Dis week was down to @bvfeyj (Tucker) to choose da winner, a hard task this week wiv so many great entries yet again!
So, last week da winning linky was Don McLean wiv Vincent. Let's see what linkies we did get:

Here I am nice and early this time, I thought Vincent was a lovely choice and if I was the judge I would have chosen it. My link this week is the  Song from Moulin Rouge 1952 sung by Sam Cooke sometimes the song is known as Where is your heart. Why? Toulouse Lautrec was an artist contemporary with Van Gogh he too had a sad life this song is haunting, it comes at the end of the film.

Last week the linky was Vincent by Don McLean so for this week I am choosing “American Pie” (the long version !) which is another Don McLean song.

it's friday, it's five to five, it's CRACKERJACK!! *crackerjack* oh, hang on - i think i've got the wrong person - tra la la.....ahem, right don mclean sang about vincent van gogh who, when he wasn't painting himself, painted pretty pictures of sunflowers & irises so i've goo dolls - iris
(i don't think tucker will have any idea what crackerjack *crackerjack* is!!)

The Art Is Hard by Nina Kinert. Why? We had two tributes to artists in the last two weeks. With Nina Kinert's awesome song we turn to the artists view which is a lot about yearning.

Vincent by Don McLean was the linky last week. The first album by this singer was called “Tapestry”. Carole King also recorded a song “Tapestry”. So I choose another Carole King song as my linky – “You’ve Got A Friend” because all anipals will have friends if they are on Twitter & take part in #lexieschain.

Last week was “Vincent” by Don McLean. Me finks dere is lots ob great linkies for dis, but me stay wif an obvious one. Don McLean also had big hit wif “American Pie” which was kinda about da plane crash dat did kill Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J. P. Richardson “The Big Bopper”, so me suggest “Chantilly Lace” by The Big Bopper.

So well dun to da Tucker dis week. You dus be good at dis stuff fur shure! We dus says we go wid da Starry theme and says why not make da linky 'When you wish upon star' ? We dus thort it wus a bit chirpier dan on da songy bout Vinnie's life wot wus sad and Pinocchio did start out sort of sad but ended up happy cuz he did wish upon a star! Also and good old Louis Armstrong dus be singy winging in dis version too.

Vincent Don McLean. This song is bowt Van Gogh and his struggle wiv sanity and how how he took his own life which inspired Don McLean to write dis song. Annuva artist wot was inspired to write a song abowt an artist strugglin wiv life was Peter Gabriel and his song Mercy Street dedicated to Anne Sexton, a poet wot also struggled wif her sanity an also took her own life.

our chain: it be The Painter by Neil Young. Da linky be dat Vincent mite ave been Van Gogh who paint fings.

My linky is Every Day by Buddy Holly. Don McLean's Vincent comes from the album entitled American Pie. The much covered single of the same name as the album is believed to be partly autobiographical & partly inspired by the untimely deaths of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens & JP Richardson in a plane crash, hence the lyric "the day the music died". The year after releasing Vincent, McLean himself released a cover of EveryDay.

This week need to link to Vincent by Don McLean. Next to Mr Van Gogh the other famous Vincent that comes to my mind is Vincent Price. A song that links to Vincent Price is Thriller by Michael Jackson because he did a voice-over in this song. One of Van Gogh's most famous paintings is Sunflowers and these were Michael Jackson's favourite flower and, as a result, his Mausoleum was covered in them. For these reasons my link is Thriller by Michael Jackson.

So Vincent by Don McLean-- he also sung 'Love Hurts' which as we all remember, was the name of a tv drama starring Adam Faith. Welllllll Mr Adam Faith puts me in mind of the great Tommy Steele and so my linky do be 'Flash, Bang, Wallop'- mainly for its rousing chorus.

The winner of the 57th #lexieschain as chosen by @bvfeyj.... dus be ........... @diamondbertie wiv Where Is Your Heart by Sam Cooke. Well done Bertie! Yay!
