Lexie's Chain: The Hundred and Eighty Fourth Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to week 184 of #lexieschain. So last time was  Terence wiv Dionne Warwick an Heartbreaker. So let's see wots we gots dis week:

Dionne Warwick was very famous singer with famous family connections. Most famously, her aunt was Cissy Houston, mother of the great singer who tragically died from drugs, Whitney Houston. Whitney was Dionne's cousin. Whitney was a very bootiful woman and was quite a 'heartbreaker' in her day. So, we go wiv Whitney Houston and Where Do Broken Hearts Go .. A family link related to affairs of the heart.

Last week that clever Terence Terrier won with Dionne Warwick singing Heartbreaker, that was a link which gave me loads of ideas, well I settled for Cilla Black singing Anyone Who Had a Heart, this was also a song Dionne Warwick sang.

Well this may be a bit of a stretch BOL. Great song from Dionne Wawick, Terence! Dionne was born in Georgia but grew up in New Jersey with her musical family. Many wonderful musicians call New Jersey home. Over 100 can say they have been part of Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes! My pick this week " Fever " cause Hearts that are broken can cause fever!

Well done Terence with Dionne Warwick and Heartaches. Dionne was a featured singer for Hall David and Burt Bacharach. Many other artists recorded their songs. Staying with the heartache theme, my link is the Fifth Dimension singing a Bacharach song "One Less Bell to Answer".

Last weeks winner was a sing by the lovely Dionne Warwick. One of her other songs was "Walk on By" so we've gone with walking as a theme. Now something you certainly couldn't "walk on by" is a dinosaur (there's a dinosaur obsession in our house right now) so we've chosen "Walk the Dinosaur" by Was (Not Was). We think you'd run on by if you saw a dinosaur!

Super winner fwom Terence, we adore Dionne Warwick's voice. Fer our linky we fawt bout heartbreaking n dat da opposite mus be a lasting n passionate love. Our other favwite female Soul singer wuz Minnie Riperton n Loving You, er most successful single, is about her love fer er husband n also shows er remarkable vocal range. It's beautiful n passionate.

An da winner ... as chosen by  .... Terence ......... dus be ......... on gawd! Is me again wiv Whitney Houston and Where do broken hearts go.So it's down to the dad.

Ere wot Terence said bowty it: Wez listened to all of dem now. Dere woz lots we like but Iz chosen linky 1 wot be Whitney Houston and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go”
