Lexie's Chain: The Hundred and Sixteenth Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to week 116 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner wos Kelso aka @kelsoterrier wiv Que Sera Sera from Doris Day. So lets see wot we got dis week.

Doris Day sings this song in the movie The Man Who Knew Too Much wot dus be a Alfred Hitchcock filum where their son gets kidnapped after a dyin man whispers in his ear about assasination attempt. 

Well, this all takes place in Marrakech, Morocco. So, I fink I focus on songs wot menshun Marrakech. Wot betta than the Marrakech Express!

Mom remembers listening to "Que sera sera" on AM radio as a young kit. The Oscar winning tune was from the Hitchcock movie "The Man Who Knew too Much". Probably my favorite Hitchcock film is "Rear Window" which has naturally been spoofed over the years. The Simpsons sppofed the movie in "Bart of Darkness", a hot summer where Bart had broken his leg and watched Flanders killing his plant. The episode ends with Frank Sinatra singing "Summer Wind", my choice for the chain.

Mr. Kelso was da winner with Miss Doris Day singing " Que Sera Sera " which has a line " The future's not ours to see" . Mr. leonard Cohen says " I have seen the future, brother & it's murder ".

Last week was the lovely Doris Day singing Que Sera Sera, a great song where someone is asking what the future will be. My choice is In the Year 2525 sung by Zager & Evans, why? this song is predicting the future both songs though old unforgettable. 

Well done Kelso for last week. It's been such a lovely day today I am doing my link earlier than usual because I have a tweet up tomorrow with other BT Pals from Twitter. As ever my links are quite simple but I always like to suggest a good tune as everyone does. I am using the word Day as the link this time from Doris Day. One of the best live bands I have seen are Elbow and they always get the crowd singing with this sonf "One Day Like This" so my link is Day to Elbow One Day Like THis good luck everyone. 

Da clever @kelsoterrier did win last week wif Doris Day and Que Sera Sera. Since Doris Day is animal activist me fink who else in music supports anipals. Some bery famous peoples do! So me choose for linky dis week “I’ll Stand By You” by Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders). She is not only animal activist but she is a vegetarian and did hab vegan restaurant in Akron, Ohio. 

Kelso’s winning linky was “Que Sera Sera (whatever will be will be)” by Doris Day. Karma is said to control our destiny so I choses for my linky this week “Instant Karma” written & sung by John Lennon.

Aha the marvellous Kelso wins again, a truly fine Border Terrier indeed. Compliments over on with the linky. So last week we had a little number from Doris Day. Doris Day starred with Howard Keel in Calamity Jane which was Warner Brother's answer to the MGM film, Annie Get Your Gun. Howard Keel starred in Annie Get Your Gun and sang with Betty Hutton my linky "Anything You Can Do".

It was the pregnancy of Betty Hutton that had led to Day being cast in her first major film role, Romance on the High Seas. In 1962 Doris Day recorded all of the songs from Annie Get Your Gun for an album of the same name. 

Last week Mr Kelso chose Que Sera Sera as his link in the chain. That song is often used as the basis for a famous football chant…."Qure sera sera, whatever will be will be, we're going to Wemberleee, que sera sera…"…and as my team is hopefully going to Wembley this year I am going to choose a famous football song as my link this week…so (with apologies)…its Gazza with Fog on the Tyne…

Congratulations to Mr Agility himself for winning da chainy last week. I have a dog themed link this week. Doris Day did duet with Frank Sinatra on 'Lets Take an Old Fashioned Walk'. Frank Sinatra did duet with Luther Vandross on 'The Lady is a Tramp'. Luther Vandross sang a song called 'Come Back' and finally....... An artist who made a comeback is Paul Simon. I choose his song 'Diamonds on the Soles of her Paws'. ;-)
