Hello pals! Welcome to Week 73 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to Teence to choose. Last week we ad The Killing Moon from Echo and the Bunnymen wot Marley won! Let's have a look at the entries for this week:
The Bunnymen! I wonder if they do like Carrotinis. Well, bunnies and rabbits, rabbits and bunnies. The Bunnymen love for sure "Hat, meet rabbit - Rabbit, meet hat" from Gaba Kulka. So will bunny whisperer Marley?
Since Marley’s winning linky last week was by Echo and The Bunnymen I decided to look for a bunny connection. My linky for this week is “Rabbit” by Chas & Dave.
Right. Listen carefully. I will only say dis only once. The winning linky last week by that cleva clogs @marleyterrier was The Killing Moon by Echo & The Bunnymen. So wiv killing an bunnies involved this puts me in mind of the film “Fatal Attraction” where the phrase Bunny Boiler was coined after the character played by actress Glenn Close killed and boiled the family’s pet rabbit. Glen Close narrated the story “The Emperor & The Nightingale” for Rabbit Ears Productions and also performed at Carnegie Hall taking part in the concerto “The Runaway Bunny”. But amongst our canine pals she is best known for her part as Cruella De Vil in “101 Dalmatians” by Disney in 1996. In that film she had plenty of killing planned of innocent pups although some bunnies did help in the rescue mission so they could escape from her mansion. So (still wiv me?) for the linky I choose the song “Cruella De Vil” from that movie. It is sung by Selena Gomez.
Last week we did hab Killing Moon - Echo And The Bunnymen a great pick by @marleyterrier which @terenceterrier did wisely choose as da winner. Dis maked me fink ob songs about da moon, but den me did fink dat you not see da moon in da daytime, you see da moon at night which ob course is after sundown. Den me remembered da wonderful song “Hurry Sundown” by The Outlaws. See his shadow in da light ob da moon - hear da gypsies call!
Well done to da cleva paws Marley for choosin da chainy last week - was a good one. So wot dus one go wid afta dat? Well fur inspurashun we did put on rainycoats and did bounce round like bunnies based on da songy last week and den said hey why not go wid 'Doris Day's - By the Light of the Silvery Moon BOL!
A well deserved first win in ages for @marleyterrier; congratulations & celebrations.
On to the linky: Ian McCulloch was one of the founding members of Echo & the Bunnymen, but in 1998 he was part of England United, a collaboration with the Spice Girls, Ocean Colour Scene & Space who recorded the the official 1998 World Cup football song - Top of the World.
However, this song was not as popular as the previous official England World Cup song by EnglandNewOrder : World in Motion. New Order were great friends with the Bunnymen having been on tour together around North America in 1987. This song was New Order's only chart topper but my link shall be another of their songs, the biggest selling 12 inch of all time: Blue Monday.
I was listening to last week's winner The Killing Moon by Echo & The Bunnymen, I heard it for for first time, and I really liked it. I want to keep the theme of the moon but a different mood, The Killing Moon was sad and yet haunting. My choice is Under The Moon of Love by Showaddywaddy. Why? It makes my feet tap and however sad or miffed I am it makes me smile, we all need to smile.
Ok here is ma linky. Echo was ackhewlly a drum machine wot dus be an electronic instrument wot imitates the sound of drums and uvva percusshun intstruments. Radiohead used electric piano, drum machine and computer manupliashuns of sounds. So, I chooses their track Everything In Its Right Place by Radiohead.
An da winner .... as chosen by Marley dus be ...... drum roll ..... @patchdacat wiv da awesome Chas N Dave an Rabbit! Yayayayaaay!! Well done Patch .. first win under your belt. Many congratulations. Ere wot Marley said:
Hmmm, well there has been quite the punch up ere this week trying to choose the best linky. The typist was shamelessly voting for there Outlaws but we has telled him that an addiction to country rock be no qualification for bein a judge. Lola has tried to pretend she be clever and is suggestin the very intertestin Gaba Kula (wot she like very much) but as it was MARLEY who did win last week I am voting for the most border terrier-like of all da bands: Chas & Dave. They has won by a short beard (or a very short pair of beards to be accurate). Hee hee. Woof.
