Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Ninth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 209 of #lexieschain. Last week  the winner was me wiv New Order and World In Moshun. Let's see wot appened this week.

So Lexie you won last week with a song by New Order one of my fave bands. new Order of course were formed following the tragic death of Ian Curtis and the ending of Joy Division. Joy Division have been very influential and much revered of course. Here is probably their best known song Love will Tear us Apart - don't they all look fresh faced in this video. Happy choosing everyone.

Last week @djladylexie won with World in Motion by England New Order I'm keeping the theme of football with Football Crazy by Robin Hall and Jimmy MacGregor, I know its old but I could not resist it.

Last week we had World In Motion by New Order. When the world is in motion (which I guess is all the time really) it spins. This made me think of a whole load of spinning linkies until I got Dizzy (like a whirlpool...but I'm not choosing Wonderstuff). My link is Dead or Alive with You Spin Me Right Round (Like A Record) BABY!

So last weeks winner was New Order with World in Motion with John Barnes rapping. My link this week is simple. It's someone we're massive fans of in this house  - spoken word/ hip hop artist/ rapper Scroobius Pip showing us how rapping should be done. Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip and their very early track "Look For The Woman".

Well done Lexie! The lyrics have one repeated phrase "express yourself". That mantra is the title for several songs, but my favorite is from 1970 by Charles Wright and the 103rd Street Rhythm Band.

The Lady DJ Lexie wants us to link to a football song. This song is a combination of singing and rap. So in keeping with that theme and considering it is Super Bowl weekend, my link is " Ready or Not". Lauryn Hill is considered one of the first & one of the best to combine rap & song. And I'm always ready for Football!

Hello Miss Lexie! Last week you chose a song associated with football….we thought it might be nice to keep the sporting theme going so this week we have chosen a song about is a song called “Centrefield” by John Fogerty……it was included in the film Bull Durham, about baseball, and also plays at the Baseball Hall of Fame in the uSA.

An the winner as chosen by ma dad ......  dus be ....... @kelsoterrier. Yay! You be dussin the selecshun next week me pal.

Ere wot me dad said:  I can't decide between all these great links from everyone. This is annoying. How did I get stuck doing this again? The spinning one made me laugh so that is my choice. [Lexie's note: this is not a fix, dad does not know who anyone is I promise]
