Lexie's Chain: The Ninety-Fifth Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to Week 95 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to Kelso to choose. Last time was Pearl Jam wiv Black. Let's see wot happened this week!

My chain suggestion this week is the following song. Yay for all kind of love songs! Cat Powers's song is about love that turns into unrequited love. That's the kind of love that's so bitter sweet and melancholic like Cat Power's music. The second linky is her collaboration on solo projects of Eddie Vedder - the singer of Aunty Pearl's Jam band. 

Bin staring at the werds Black by Pearl Jam for inspirayshun whilst nomming my way through a pack of Jammy Dodgers. Then I kept getting the werds Jam & Jerusalem coming to me. Dis be the name of a TV series bowt the Womens Institute ladies who make lotsa jam & whose anthem is “Jerusalem” . This songy has the phrase “dark satanic mills” in it which were pretty black cos of all the soot from their chimneys. The mills were part of the industrial revolution and the steel mills were in the part of England known as the Black Country. So my linky be “Jerusalem” – dis version taken from Last Night of the Proms 2011 & by BBC Symphony Orchestra, Singers & Symphony Chorus (just the furst bit!)

Ok.Black by Pearl Jam. Hmmmmm well if you remove the jam you is left wiv da Black Pearl. The Black Pearl was the name of the ship in The Curse of the Black Pearl as you probly know! As you also probly know … Johnny Depp was in dat filum as Captain Jack Sparrow. Johnny Depp also likes to play guitar and famously played the slide guitar on the Oasis song Fade In-Out. So dat ma choicy for da linky Black > Pearl Jam > Black Pearl > Jack Sparrow > Johnny Depp > Oasis! Ta-da!

Well dun to Kelso fur such a taarific linky last week! So cause we dUs lov jam in dis house we is going wif a linky wot we dUs jam to in dis howse. Is called 'Pump Up The Jam by Tecnotronic. Pump up dA jam, dadada, yeah pump up dA jam....

Last week the winning linky was”Black” by Pearl Jam. There are lots of songs with black in the title so I thought I’d be different and look at it from a different angle. I looked for a song by a black artist with the song title linking to words Pearl or Jam. My linky this week is “Jam” by Michael Jackson. BTW Michael was born black but in this video his face is a sorta pearl colour. So I gets all 3 words into the linky.

Last week we did hab Pearl Jam wif dere song Black which was submitted by da brilliant kelos (or is dat lesko) anyway by dat @kelsoterrier. Me did discober dat Pearl Jam hab worked on and off wif Neil Young and Neil is sometimes known as da “Godfather” ob grunge for his influence on Pearl Jam and uvver grunge bands so me does choose Pearl Jam joined by Neil Young on da bery intense Rockin’ in the Free World! It kinda long but worf ebery second!  Pearl Jam performing rockin' in the free world with Neil Young in Toronto 2011.

Well done Kelso on last week's win giving is Black from Pearl Jam. This one stumped me, so I decided to go for a colour inspired linky: Yellow by Coldplay. Like Pearl Jam, Coldplay are renowned for their political & social activism from being involved in endorsing US presidential candidates & being critical of US foreign policy to being very active in green issues such as global warming & fair trade.


Well done K. My linky is short and very sweet and it dus be 'Invisible' by Mr Paul Weller because this too is a moving song about unrequited love.

Oh deer……*runrun*….it ave been a terribly bizee week wot wiv one fing or another…….er…..I dint be avin much time for doin my chain between updating peemail, nappin, crumb patrol, Autumn Watch (aka Squirrel checks) and wot not….so er….we do be looking at Patch's choice of Black by Pear Jam and finking….why mess wiv a classic? So this week we do be Back in Black….he he see wot I did there? Its by well known Aussie choir boys AC/DC.

Well it has been difficult to fink straight this week, cos we have been looking after ovver people's dogs during half term! So to link wiv Pearl Jam we is simply finking of important bands from the grunge scene in Seattle in the 1990's, and guess what? We were so original we came up wiv Nirvana!!! *taxi for Mr Terrier*. We choose the unplugged version of 'Come as you are':

Last weeks winner was Black by Pearl Jam. I shall stick to the word play of BLACK by choosing Back to Black by the talented Amy Winehouse.

An the winner dis week .... as chosen by @kelsoterrier  ..... dus be  ........ @djladylexie wiv Oasis an Fade In-Out. A great linky even if I dus say so maself teehee. Time for dad to choose again!.
