Hello pals! Welcome to Week 91 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to Kelso to choose. Last time was The Specials wiv Message To You Rudy. Let's see wot happened this week!
Red Red Wine by Tony Tribe. Why? "Rudy, A Message to You" is a song of David Livingston and covered by The Specials. Livingston is not just a musician but a producer and he worked together with Tony Tribe for "Red Red Wine", another lovely reggae influenced song.
The Specials also did a song called Nelson Mandela wot is a song calling for da release of Nelson Mandela and their anti-apartheid message to da world. Ma song I be choosin dus be Biko by Peter Gabriel wot also wrote a song about another anti-apartheid activist, Steven Biko, who died from beatins and torture whilst under interrogation . So dat ma linky. Biko – Peter Gabriel.
So den first of all, we says was very well dun on winning da Lexie's chain last week Kelso! Now den, we dercided to lets our paws do da tapping and dey said 'whop bop a loo bop a ding dang dong!' So's we said why nots go wif an oldie buts a goodie, Little Richard's Tutti Frutti. Why? Cause he's talking bout Rudy's Frutti wot be a tutti so we fort we'd go wif it cause last week dey was talking bout messages to sum udder Rudy wot be a tooody!
Ok, follow dis train ob fot as we go right off da rails... Kelso did hab bery cleber linky Message to You Rudy by The Specials. Dis same year dey did Live: Too Much Too Young. Dere record company was Chrysalis Records which was also da record company ob Jethro Tull who did a song called Too Old to Rock and Roll and Too Young to Die, which me did fink ob. So me did decide we go wif Jethro Tull but we choose anuvver ob dey songs “Heavy Horses” cuz we likes it!
My linky this week is “Bright Eyes” from Watership Down film in memory of my pal Jake who went OTRB yesterday which I hopes pals will listen to. I iz too sad at moment to play chainy & find a linky to previous song.
Here is my entry for the next link in the chain.Last week was the Specials - A Message to you Rudy my choice is Bob Marley - Three Little Birds. Why? they are both of a similar foot tapping beat.
Good choice-good linky-the Specials. Well I was spoilt for choice- I thought the Coventry connection with Hazel O'Conner and 'Eighth Day' or even the youthful Vince Hill with 'Edelweiss'. But no for anonymous reasons I have finally chosen Adele 'Hometown'. *wipes slow wet tear sliding down furry face*.
Well done Kelso on last weeks win giving us A Message to you, Rudi by The Specials. Playing trombone was Rico Rodriguez he had also played on the Dandy Livingston original, later he would also collaborate with Jools Holland in his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra. Jools Holland was one if the founding members of Squeeze. Squeeze's first success in America came with my linky, Tempted, a song produced by Elvis Costello who also produced The Specials - A Message to you Rudi.
