Lexie´s Chain: The Hundred and Eighty Eighth Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to week 188 of #lexieschain. Oh, an remember mum dus be in Ibeefa rightnow so service may be slightly erratic ;). So last time was @wonderwinger wiv Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel. So let's see wots we gots dis week:

last week Lady Briar won with a song by Peter Gabriel…..we know that Mr Gabriel was once in a band called Genesis…..Genesis is the first book in The Bible…and the first words that God spoke in the Bible were “let there be light”…and so our link this week is “Ray of Light” by Madonna….*dancing paws*

We likes Peter Gabriel, da creative member of Genesis; a solo star; campaigner fer human rights; founder of WOMAD n dis year marks da 25th anniversary of his Real World Records. A commemorative box set of CDs is to be released n one of da songs is Kipenda Roho fwom da LP "Songs for the Poor Man" by Remmy Ongala & Orchestre Super Matimila. Dad bawt dis in 89 n luvs it still, it is a gawjuss Tanzanian take on Congolese Soukous, fast Rumba based dance music full of effortlessly complex percussion topped by guitars dat jus sing da sweetest sound. Dr Remmy wuz luvd in Tanzania fer his music, his compassion n belief in human rights fer all, his funeral in 2010 wuz a national event. Our linky is dat song Kipenda Roho, its openin lines are: "What the heart loves the body follows, love has no sense of colour, love has no sense of race"

Well done with Sledgehammer! The number featured The Memphis Horns who are the Stax records house band. The basis for that sound can be heard in a recording by Booker T. And the MGs. I have so many Booker T songs, but I had yo pick one, Groovin'.

Da winning linky larst week be Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel chosen by da supamodel Briar.
If da pawleece haz a sledgehammer dey will probs be knockin down doors wiv it to get in to houses wiv norty peeps inside. But cos Gabriel woz an angel we fink he would be knockin on a door to heaven. So my chosen linky be Knocking on Heavens Door by Bob Dylan. Dis vershun haz Mark Kopfler playing on it.

So, last weeks winner was Peter Gabriel with his amazing video for Sledgehammer. Peter Gabriel once did a song with The wonderful Kate Bush where they just cuddled for ages. Kate Bush did an ace song about us lot called Hounds of Love. A bunch of Northern lads called The Futureheads covered Hounds of Love in their own style and did a video with lots of dogs! So here's our chain the is week. The Futureheads and Hounds of Love...

Okies. Peter Gabriel sang duet wiv Kate Bush called Dont Give Up. A certain person loves Kate Bush and has been to see her live in concert this week. So what else but honouring the awesomeness of kate wiv one of our favourites: Cloudbusting.

So da winner as decided by @wonderwinger is  .... @claptonterrier wiv Madonna and Ray of Light  .... Yay! Well done ma pal. You dus be choosin next week.

Ere wot Briar said bowty it: Although I likes the Gabriel Angel linky number 4, my selection is the biblical linky number 1. Take it away, Madge..  *twirls and does the "Shimmy Shoulders".
