Lexie's Chain: The Seventy-Second Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to Week 72 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to Teence to choose. Last week we ad Rod Stewart and Tonight's The Night.

We dus say congrachulashuns to Terrence for a terrific linky last week! So den we been having many discussions over noms and said wot does foller Rod Stewart and well we says da linky dis week is Phil Collin's 'I Can Feel It In The Air Tonight'! Why you ask? Well because last week Roddy's songy was not only about tonite bein da nite for dem *giggles - cus dey was doing da wiggy* but it wus also about da beginning of a relashunship - he was woo wooing da girlly saying we is gonna get togetha and then Phil's songy not only has toonite in but it is about da end of a relashunship. Seems he was bitta wid his exy wifey! So has a start & da end!

Huge well done to Terence on his brilliant second win last week, not just a one win wonder at all. My linky is The Man With The Golden Gun by Lulu. Why I hear you ask? Well like Rod Stewart, Lulu is also Scottish. More interestingly, Britt Ekland was the Bond girl in The Man With The Golden Gun & was also Rod Stewart's girl at the time when Tonight's The Night was made. She can even be heard performing the whispers on the record.

Okay, for a linky to @terenceterrier's Rod Stewart song “Tonight’s the Night”... dis one bery difficult because dere soooo many wonderful possibilities! Rod was heavily influenced by Sam Cooke and Bob Dylan and he covered songs by boaf, including "Tomorrow Is Such a Long Time" from his album Every Picture Tells a Story. Me not finded da Bob Dylan version on You Tube but Rod's cover is great anyway so we listen to it!  "Tomorrow Is Such a Long Time" Rod Stewart

Last week's winner was Rod Stewarts Tonight's the Night, my best idea for this week is Tom Jones' Love me Tonight. Why they are both songs of love and longing and pleasures of the night,  err hem.

Well done Terence! Ok let me fink bowt dis one. Rod Stewart gave Elton John da nickname Sharon and Elton called Rod Phillis and they teased each uvva bowt their sexuality. So, ma linky does be Elton John and The Bitch Is Back.

Well done Terence wiv your winning entry last week. Rod Stewart did be singing 'Handbags and Gladrags'. This song was written by Chris Farlowe who has a long association with the legendary Van Morrison. They toured together and guested on each others music. So this linky is 'You don't pull no punches but you don't push the river' by Mr Van Morrison cos it dus be our fave. (to be honest mum choose dis weeks linky cos she luv Mr M! -- I call it hijacking).

My linky be "Let's Spend The Night Together" by The Rolling Stones because the lyrics have the same suggestive theme as "Tonights the Night".

We did see that Terrunce did choose a song by Rod Stewart. We see dat Rod the Mod's first solo record be called An Old Raincoat Wont Ever Let You down. This made us fink of Leonard Cohen song Famous Blue Raincoat but we fink dat too gloomy so we fink about bands wot ave links to raincoats so we did fink of Echo & The Bunnymen who wored em all the time...and so our chain duss be Killing Moon by E&TBM wot you can listen to here.

An da winner ... as chosen by @terenceterrier .... dus be .............. @marleyterrier wiv Killing Moon - Echo And The Bunnymen!! Yay well done Marley - first win of da season!! Nice linky too.
