Lexie's Chain: The Hundred and Fourth Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to week 104 of #lexieschain. So lets see wot we gots dis week. 

Last week's winner was American Pie by Don McLean….his other most famous song was Starry Starry Night which was a song about Vincent Van Gogh…..Mr van Gogh was a famous painter so we have chosen another song about a famous painter. This was is Willem De Kooning, a modern painter….. he has a modern band to tell you all about him….The Manic Street Preachers and Interiors (Song For Williem De Kooning)

I listen two da song, American Pie bye Dun Mcloon wif me Pa. He likes dis song verry much and he sings it two mee along wif da wideo. I know music expert and a novis at da chain fing so I thunk wat I likes about da song and IMMEDITALEE noes wat my favoryte fing bout it bee. He singing about PIE, I loves nomming on a pie, frum heer on it was easy. I just fink of me Otha favoryte pie song and won me Ma likes.

So me entry be Delilah by Tom Jones (aka Jack McWestie) basicalee because of da famouse line frum Dat song......

"PIE, PIE, PIE DELILAH dum dum dum diddy dum dum"

@djladylexie AND @WallaseKatt!
American Pie contains the lines "drove my chevy to the levy but the levy was dry and them good old boys were drinkin whisky and rye". So I was finkin old men drinkin whisky. They problay drinks it from big ole jar… so old men, drinkin whisky in jars. Who else! The Dubliners and Whisky in the Jar 

Last week was American Pie by Don McLean and he is quoted as saying that song represents "the turn from innocence of the 1950s to the darker, more volatile times in the 1960s - both in music and in politics". So, I chose the song Turn, Turn Turn recorded by The Byrds.

Dis first time we hab TWO winners- but we still hab to come up wif a linky and dey can fight about how dey picks da winner from dere! Oh my goodness! dere be so many choices for dis week and good ones too so me just going to pick somefing. American Pie was written and recorded by Don McLean. His first album recorded in 1969 was called Tapestry but was not a huge success, howeber one ob da best selling albums ob all time also called Tapestry was recorded in 1971 by Carole King. All da songs was written or co-written by her. So me does suggest “Tapestry” by Carole King.

Me does like dis bideo because it list some ob da many uvver songs dat she did write fur uvver peoples, some dat you may not know she did write. 

Hi Lexie Hope all well with you after your party sorry I couldn't make it I was out all night. My suggestion this week is When the Levee Breaks by Led Zeppelin. American Pie has the chorus "I went to the levee but the levee was dry" levees are the dykes they build in America to stop flooding. So the link is levees that's all.

Gosh, a chainy first, two winners! Good job Borderpup and Kelso. So, I see Don McLean......Well I automatically think of the Don McClean from the 1970's show Crackerjack! (Think 'cabbages and Kings', Basil Brush [fox---grrrrr]). Many pop stars of the time performed on Crackerjack, one of these is Abba. My linky is 'Eagle' by Abba cos it makes me feel grounded! Ooops, I is turning into a seventies hippie!!

I'm finkin if we startin wiff Don McClean American Pie simple linky would be to go wiff Madonna n her vershun.... but no me finks, we duznt like it. Fink again, well I did fink again n anudder simple linky be the Pie. American pie be cherry pie.... ower brain does go Neneh Cheery n wot betta than Buffolo Stance? There it is, ma furst go at da chainy...

Last weeks winner was Don MacLean's American pie, I choose Killing Me Softly With His Song by Roberta Flack. Why? Don MacLean also sang this song

Well dun to da Kelso and BorderPub for winning da chainy together and at da same time! Now we been thinking about dat songy Long Long Time Ago and da lyrics wot says, Drove my chevy to da leffy and dey was drinkin whisky and rye....which did make us start a thinking bout one of Dad's fav songys wot has Whisky in it too so we is going wid Thin Lizzy's 'Whiskey in the Jar - although dey dus spell it wrong, if you is a Scottish paw, is still our linky dis week . Hit it.....

Well done Kelso & Indy on the double win giving us American Pie and Don McLean as our 1st link of 2013. I decided to keep it simple and run with the "Pie Theme". There have been quite a few songs written about pies or rather songs pretending to be about pies but my link shall be Custard Pie by Led Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin and Don McLean can be linked further by the fact that they both reference the song "The Book of Love" by The Monotones in their songs Rock and Roll and American Pie.

Last week da winnin linky be “American Pie” by Don Maclean. The line in da songy “the day the music died” is sposed to refer to the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. Buddy Holly was an American too so I chooses one his tracks as my linky “True Love Ways”.

So my chosen linkie needs to follow on from “American Pie” by Don Maclean. It is supposed to be partly abowt America in the 50’s & 60’s. So I will stick with the American theme and the same era. I choose “Back in the USA” by Chucky Berry & cos it was recorded in 1959.

So............. da winner dis week .... as chosen by @kelsoterrier and @borderpup   ... dus be ..... @bvfeyj (Tucker!). Yay!!!! Well done ma pal!
