Lexie's Chain: The Hundred and Twenty Second Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to week 122 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Kelso wiv Ramp by Scooter. Let's see wot we got dis week!

Dad missed da hints to select Techno or Dance music last week otherwise he'd have selected Underworld. Anyways on to da finkin fer dis week's linky, we looked at Scooter n thought dis is a noisy often irritatable form of transport as indeed is da Camel n dis made Dad's choice simple. It is a piece of music which has a Techno feel is defnitly Chill Out n also has a trance like quality because of its Middle Eastern n North African elements inlcuding the Oud. The music was composed, played n produced by the Spy From Cairo aka Zeb real name Moreno Visini who wuz raised in Italy n lives n works in New York as a club DJ n recording artist. Dad luvs da way he blends modern electronic music wiv traditional chants n instruments, so here's our linky da beautifully hauntin "Ride My Camel" by Spy From Cairo.

Congrats to @kelsoterrier Great win! Another Oh what a week! Spent the time learning about Eurovision. Who knew Abba & Celine Dion Winners! And guess what me watched the semi-finals second round on Friday. Yes! It's Eurovision 2013 from Malmo. Ding Dong...." I wanna be sedated " The Ramones be ma link. 

Last week's winner of the chain was Ramp (the logical song) by Scooter, I defy anyone listening to this and not smiling and tapping their feet. My choice is another such fun piece is Popcorn by Hot Butter.

GREAT link, Kelso! You da dog! Me does hab to say to Lexie’s dad, Ha! Ha! dis easy one to link to! It dun comed to me in a blinding flash! So let me ‘splain... Kelso did gib us Ramp! (The Logical Song) by Scooter. (To me great surprise me did like it!) Still, it ravver loosely based on da Logical Song by Supertramp and does use some ob da lyrics from dat great song which in itself could be a link. But me not chose da easy link ob Supertramp’s Logical Song- NO! Me does fink about da lyrics dey does quote and da rest ob Roger Hodgson’s lyrics including da great line “The questions run too deep for such a simple man...” So me chose “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Take dat, Lexie’s dad! Dis ain’t no techno!

Looking for a Eurovision themed entry linking to Scooter was a bit tricky, but then I thought I know I'll whip off the -ter replace them with a -ch. What have we got? Only SCOOCH! Yes that's right Scooch who were the UK Eurovision entry in 2007 with "Flying The Flag (For You)". Of course, to scooch means to scoot over and some urban dictionaries state it comes from "scoot your tush" as in to very quickly move your bottom a tiny bit.

Well dun to you Kelso fur your win AGIN dis week. We has had a rilly tuff time on dis linky so all we could go wif was dat scooter and wot it dus which is take you here and der sooooo our linky dis week dus be da Staple Singers I'll Take You There. BOL! 

Bit late here hope I don't miss the cut. Have to be quick. Scooters ramp made me think of scooters that mods ride on. Quadrophenia by the Who was their mod opera my favourite song by The Who is 5 15 so that's my very rushed suggestion. Good luck all.

Hello Miss Lexie…I am very sorry I did not have a chance to pawticipate in last week's Chain….someone *ahem* was off on a boy's weekend abroad….anyhoo, we saw that mr Kelso was the winner last week with Ramp! by Scooter. In this house, scooters are not German techno nerds but a way of travelling…that's right, we are talking about scooters and mopeds and motorbikes…so this week our link is "Unknown Legend" by Neil Young…the chorus says

Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
Flyin' in the wind
She's been runnin' half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
Collidin' with
The very air she breathes
The air she breathes.

Someone round here would like to have ago at doing that….but has to settle for going to the station on his Vespa….*makes "Loser" L on forehead*….

Hmmm so many choices .. Ramps! Scooters! Logic!! Am going wiv scooters. Who loves scooters? Mods that's who! What is greatest mod movie of all time? Quadrophenia of course (errr think it was the only mod movie!!). Famous for his role in the movie was Phil Daniels playing Jimmy, a mod who has an awesome Lambretta scooter. Phil Daniels also dun a right good bit of singing (well talking really) on the Parklife single so that is ma linky! Parklife . Blur.

Well done Kelso on your win last weeky. Well, hmmm. Ramp huh? I fink of Mark Ramprakash cos dat be his nickname. So I choose 'Let's Get Loud' by Jennifer Lopez coz that's what he danced his Cha Cha Cha to on Strictly Come Dancing. *sways of on balls of pads, twisting hips*.
