Lexie's Chain: The Hundred and Seventy Sixth Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to week 176 of #lexieschain. Impawtant Note pals, mum goin into hospital on 4th June and will be out of action for a few weeks so Lexie's Chain will go on hold until she allowed to help me on computa again pffttttttt!! 

Last week da winner was me wiv Sympafy for the Devil by Rollin Stones. Let's see wot we gots dis week: 

Moosik expert DJ Lady Lexie won wiv “ Sympathy For the Devil” by the Rolling Stones. I pondered a bit and da name Lucifer popped into my head. Dis be annuva name for da Devil. If yoo google woogle a bit abowt relijuss beliffs yoo sees dat Lucifer woz a da Fallen Angel. So for my linky dis week I have a track called “Fallen Angels” by Black Veil Brides.

I SO love "sympathy for the Devil" - well done Lexie! The song has a Afro-latin beat, so I took this tangent. I noticed that the saxophone colossus Sonny Rollins had played on the Stones' "Tattoo You" album. (listen to Waiting on a friend, and you will hear Sonny). Sonny was born in the Virgin Islands and writes many songs with that same afro-latin beat. Here is one of my favorites, "St. Thomas" with the incomparable Max Roach on drums.

So dear Lexie won last week with The Rolling Stones song Sympathy for the Devil, my choice this week is keeping the theme of the Devil with Hector Berioz's Hungarian March from the opera The Damnation of Faust. I bet there is no one who listens to this piece of music without tapping their feet.

Great linky from the DJ Lexie! For the past two weeks we have had God and the devil. Different sides of the coin . My pick for this week " Both Sides Now". Know it's not new or Tecky Oh well. Lexie's Mum you take care. We all be sending Healing Energy!

Sorry we been missing last two weeks we are back now. Lexie's winning entry was Sympathy for the Devil that song mentions the assassination of JF Kennedy in the lyrics. That's what we have used as our link this week. Another song that is about JFKs assassination is Seconds by the Human League from their best know album Dare. We have gone with possibly their biggest hit which also features on Dare and that is Don't You Want me Baby which takes me right back to my Uni days.

Well done on last weeks win with Sympathy For The Devil. We got thinking about why you'd feel sorry for the devil, after all, he's not very nice. But the devil has to keep track of all the naughty people in the world and he must be very busy. That led us on to a beautiful song by a duo called "The Civil Wars" called Barton Hollow. It contains the lyric...

Ain't going back to Barton Hollow
Devil gonna follow me e'er I go

See, the devil is very busy! 

Yikes Miss Lexie! You have introduced the Devil into proceedings…I am not sure I like the Devil…I am going to send him to Georgia….

So den a Lexie how coool is it you won wid dat linky last week by dem Rolling Stones - Sympathy fur da Devil! It gots us thinking if you had sympathy fur da devil some peepls might say you is confused or even misguided. So our linky dis week dus be by The Cowboy Junkies and is called Misguided Angel. Oh and dat der songy is frum der album The Trinity Session and guess what too, it was recorded in a church. Good luck to your sweet Mum Lexie and we'll see you when she is well and getting all better too.

Gweat linky Lexie one of da best Stones' songs.Our linky is a piece of music dats unlikely to elicit much sympafy fer da Devil on account of it bein used as a late weplacement in da film The Exorcist. Da director wuz unhappy wiv da score n heard dis music n said dats wot I want, da odd timin disconcerts da bwain n doesn't let it get used to da chords n switch off. Da music tho incwedibly successful wuz rarely perfomed as Mike Oldfield became kwite reclusive, burdened by such huge success at 19. However dere wuz a notable performance fer da BBC which featured many of Oldfield's fwends n his brother n sister. Dis gives us a second linky connection as one of da guitarists is Mick Taylor who weplaced Brian Jones in da Rolling Stones. Sittin to his right n next to Oldifled is Steve Hillage who wud later invent Ambient music wiv his partner Miquette Giraudy. Our linky an abridged version of da gweat Tubular Bells.

An da winner ... as chosen by  .... dad ...... dus be ......... @WOtterface AND @freddie_bt! So dat mean Wyn an Freddie dus be choosin next time (when me and mum allowed back on computa)! Please still send chainy tho!

Ere wot me dad said:  My head hurts. Haha so many great links to choose from. I like the  first one, never seen such clean looking emos. I enjoyed the 80's number of course. I also liked the Sonny Rollins number. All great, in fact. I could be a pain and pick two. In fact, as the dogfather, it is my duty to mix things up. So, I choose Links 6 and 9. Barton Hollow and Mike Oldfield. That'll teach you to ask me Lex ;).

So it's over to you. Email me: lexie at toxicpenguin dot com or DM me on twitter (@dogstoyevsky) wiv your link suggestion followin on from dis one! You has until 8th June 2014 (gets it to me by 2pm UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee. So good idea to type DO NOT DELETE in the title and dussnt forget to send a linky to da video from You Tube!

Lexie's Chain dus be inspired by da pawsome Radcliffe & Maconie Show wot you can has a listen to on dere website. Follow me @dogstoyevsky or #lexieschain on Twitter to join da fun. Remember anyfink goes! Rock, classical, opera, ballads, punk, reggae - is up to you! Fanx for playin!
