Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Fifteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 215 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Terence Terrier wiv Bill Oddie and The Knitting Song. Let's see wot we gots dis week!

Last week  Terence won with a song about knitting…knitting is a very fine hobby to have…but the hobby which I like to indulge in is riding my bike…so this week my choice is “Bicycle Race” by Queen…

So den a big well dun to dat Ter fur his linky last week with Bill Oddie's Knitting Song. We thorts about knitting and said if you knit one you purl one too so dat gots us thinking also dat if you knits you has to keep things even too so our linky Easy Flow by Pearl Jam gets it?  BOL! Have fun chooosin Terence!

OMD! What a week. I don't knit, don't sew , nope don't crochet. Now I do nap quite a bit!
Have fun Terence! I be " Dream Weaving".

Well done with the wonderfully campy Knitting Song! You can knit booties, knit a sweater, or even knit a community together. If ever a town needed some kindness, it is Ferguson, Missouri. So, here's to knitting Ferguson together, Curtis Mayfield and the impressions singing their civil rights anthem, "People Get Ready".

Terence was right - we'd never heard The Knitting song before! It was funny and took mum back to when Bill Oddie was in The Goodies. She used to watch them every week! They invented the noble Lancastrian art of Ecky Thump, which caught on in playgrounds around the land. Jack White was a fan and his band The White Stripes made an album called Icky Thump, changing the name a bit for American audiences. Jack was an upholsterer before becoming a musician and my favourite piece of upholstery is the bed, so we bring you Black Coffee in Bed by Squeeze.

The knitting song? Never heard of it before and trying to find a link this week was like looking for a "knitting" needle in a haystack. It would be even harder to find a pin though, you'd be searching forever! Which leads me to my link of The Searchers - Needles & Pins.

That clever @terenceterrier won last week with The knitting Song by Bill Oddie.
Yes he is right I never heard of it, but it made me smile,  I first noticed Bill in The Goodies I have to say for my link has the be The Funky Gibbon by The Goodies.

Last weeks winner was T, with Bill Oddie and The Knitting Song. Mr Oddie is a well known nature enthusiast and presented programmes like springwatch. It'll soon be spring and all the birds and the bees will be flying about doing birds and bee stuff. So I've chosen "Beeswing" by The Futureheads as my link this week.

Well ecky thump it's Bill Oddie wiv da Knitting Song. Who knew! Our linky dis week dus be Erotica by Madonna! What the? I hear you say. Well, believe it or not, is becoz of  famous misheard lyrics. In the song Erotica, Madge sings Erotic Erotic, Put Your Hands All Over My Body. What she actually singed was Bill Oddie, Bill Oddie, Put Your Hands All Over My Body! BOLBOL. That me linky: Erotica, Madonna.
