Hello pals! Welcome to Week 83 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to Patch to choose. Last time was Berlin and Take Ma Breff Away. Let's see wot happened this week!
We did fink about 'Take my Breath Away' by Berlin and thought of course of Top Gun - then nuffing else! Then mum said ang on a minute ... U2 did record their famous album 'Achtung Baby' in da Hansa Studios in Berlin! Any excuse to play U2, I says. The song we have chosen from that album is 'Mysterious Ways', and the video was fillumd in Morocco so Lexie's mum might like da middle eastern feem!
Last week Patch did gib us da beautiful Take My Breath Away by Berlin from da Top Gun movie soundtrack. Very nice linky & well deserved winner! Also from dat movie we hab eaven in Your Eyes by Loverboy. Da same year (1986) Peter Gabriel released his song In Your Eyes which was later also in a soundtrack (for the film Say Anything). And dat is me link dis week. In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel. (dis is bery good extended live version from Japan aid 1986).
I figure Berlin do be a city in Germany dat I seen on tinternet. I knows that they be a train station called Zoologischer Garten-in English - Zoo Station. Well the sooper group U2 did a songy called Zoo Station. My linky dus be the song Miss Sarajevo by U2 cos it is beautiful and always moves me when I do be hearing it.
After Patch's choice, we did notiss that the original version of Take My Breff Away was made by a band called The Motels at request of Giorgio Moroder¦..so we did get to be finking about motels and otels and wot a big part they has played in poplar musics. And of corse the most famuss otel song of all time (we fink) is Hotel California by da Eagles so we be choosin dat (wiv pologies to Mr Presley down at the end of Lonely STreet).
Here is my entry for the chain; last weeks' winner was Take my Breath away by Berlin, it was the theme to Top Gun, My choice is The Dam Busters March, by Eric Coates. Why because it keeps the theme of war and conflict.
Last week linky was Take my breath away which was on the soundtrack from the film Top Gun. Annuvva songy which wez like a lot from that film is You've lost that loving feeling by The Righteous Brothers which we choose as our linky.
Last week Berlin with Take My Breath Away was the winner. Berlin were from LA and had no real connection with the German city of Berlin but were musically inspired by Kraftwerk who were a German band. They were also inspired by Ultravox who were from London. Similarly, Ultravox had no real connection to the city of Vienna but this was one of their biggest hits. If you were in a nightclub dancing and you saw someone that was so beautiful that they "took your breath away" then you would likely soon be out of breath and end up dancing with tears in your eyes ;-) So my link this week is Ultravox with Dancing With Tears in my eyes.
So den da clever Patch wot dus be a Patch Da Cat did win (AGIN) last week so well done pal. So and so da songy last week was 'Take My Breath Away by Berlin' wot wus in da moovie Top Gun. So dis got me thinkin bout dat moovie and well Kenny Loggins did singy a song in dat moovie called Danger Zone but he also did singy wing in da 'I'm Alright in Caddyshack So i is going to go wid i'm alright cus no body dus need ta worry bout mee! *danses*.
Well done Patch on winning the chainy last week with Take My Breath Away. My link is Olympics-inspired in that it is Run by Snow Patrol. Why this song? Well, when you run really really fast so often afterwards you are short of breath & Berlin was the host city of the Olympics in 1936. Apart from that, this song has some beautiful lyrics and honours so many of our friends that have passed OTRB this week.
So last week was Take My Breff Away by Berlin. Berlin also dun a song called no more words wot was their first single from da album Love Life. That album was produced by Giorigo Moroder, Italian record producer. Famous for his sythesizer productions, many of which were his own.Our favourite of the time was from da fabulus movie Midnight Express so we choses Chase from Midnight Express by Giorgio Moroder.
An the winner dis week .... as chosen by @patchdacat..... dus be ........ @wonderwinger wiv Run by Snow Patrol. Yay!! Well done ma pal!
