Lexie's Chain: The Hundred And Ninety Seventh Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to week 197 of #lexieschain. Last week was Stella wiv Hold On from Alabama Shakes! Let us see what we gots dis week:

So, last weeks winner was Alabama Shakes with "Hold On". People who don't hold on are very likely to be lonely and the song we have chosen is all about being lonely. It also contains the line "I must have been working the ropes, when your hand slipped from mine" so he definitely didn't hold on. Ladies and gents of the chain, we present to you the achingly beautiful Elbow and the Philharmonic Orchestra performing "The loneliness of a tower crane driver" live at Abbey Road. *shivers up the spine*.

Larst week da winning linky woz “Hold On” by Alabama Shakes. *finks* * finks again* OK I been shakin a lot cos of all da wizz bangs so I gonna choose a linky by Shakin Stevens “Cry Just A Little Bit”.

Last week Alabama Shakes was the winner and so this week my link is songs which reference other states of the United States…and from among the very many of them we have chosen Private Idaho by the B52s….

So last week Miss Stella did win the chain with a tune from Alabama Shakes who were formed in Athens, Alabama. Another band was also formed in Athens but this one was in Athens , Georgia... The B-52's. My fav from them is of course " Rock Lobster" Small towns ..Big successes.

Alabama Shakes wiv Hold On. A song that portrays loneliness an trying to hold on is Pink in The Wall by Pink Floyd- Hey You.

An da winner as chosen by @smcheetham dus be .....................................@wotterface Wyn, Yay! Well done me pal. You dus be choosin next time. 

Ere wot Stella saided: I have enjoyed doing a bit of judging this week and have given it plenty of thought a rich and varied selection of links to chose from. Interesting that  two people went for the B52s but from different angles.  I have however to be Loyal to my city of birth and do like a bit of Elbow so the winner this week is Linky 1 Elbow.
