Hello pals! Welcome to week 179 of #lexieschain. So last time was Skye wiv White Rabbit from Jefferson Airplane. Let's see wot we gots dis week:
Well Done, Skye! White Rabbit is about Owsley Stanley, LSD chemist. Another proponent for the use of psychedelics was Timothy Leary. No song is more iconic than "legend of the mind" by the Moody Blues. (had to put anuvva link in coz that one not working)
Credit due to Grace Slick coz in da days of da Counter Culture women in rock music were rare, rarer still were women dat wrote songs. We read dat da music wuz influenced by Miles Davis' beautiful Sketches of Spain. Miles Davis wife Betty Davis wuz also a rock singer n like Grace wrote her songs n insisted on total artistic control, to er credit she wuz outspoken n confrontational as our linky "If I'm In Luck Tonight I Might Get Picked Up" shows. Her Funk influenced Miles musical change as did Sly Stone n Hendrix who she introduced im to.
So, really simple this week. Last week's winner was "White Rabbit", based on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. We just love Gwen Stefani's "What You Waiting For" with a very Alice in Wonderland video.
Last week da winning linky woz “ White Rabbit “ by Jefferson Airplane. Dis makes me fink of a fillum wot be abowt lotsa wabbits – Watership Down. So I chooses moosic from dat film “Bright Eyes” by sung Art Garfunkel (added linky as uvva one didn't work hope is right one)
Morning glad to be back with a chain suggestion. We have used the rabbit connection from White Rabbit and gone to another more recent rabbit based tune. We have gone for Rabbit Heart by Florence and the Machine bit of an Alice in Wonderland style video as well. Good weeks everyone.
In the Matrix movie Thomas Anderson (Neo) was shown that he was leading a false life and needs to be awakened. He is awaked by following the White Rabbit. So we followin that rabbit and as chosen a track from the soundtrack of The Matrix – Mindfields the The Prodigy! Coz drugs blow your mind!
