Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Fourteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 214 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Clapton Terrier wiv John Grant's Sigourney Weaver. Let's see wot we gots dis week!

At last @claptonterrier won with John Grant's  Sigourney Weaver, this is about aliens. My chosen link is also about aliens "martians"  so Jeff Waynes The War of the Worlds - The Eve of the War.

Last week's chain from Clapton was about an actor, Sigourney Weaver. So my link this week is a song BY an actor (amongst other things). It's Jared Leto and 30 Seconds To Mars with Up In The Air.

Larst week our little pal winned wiv “Sigourney Weaver” by John Grant. *finks hard* If yoo iz a weaver yoo makes blankies n fings on a loom wiv wool. Yoo can also use wool for knittin.  Our little pal Clapton iz made of knittin. So for my linky i gives yoo “The Knitting Song” by Bill Oddie  (betcha most pals neva heard dis one before ! )

Well done with john grant and Signorey Weaver. The lyrics mention Twilight Zone and talks about vampires. This reminds me of a song by the Manhattan Transfer, Twilight Tone which has a girl with a third eye.

Last week Sir Clapton won with " Sigourney Weaver " by John Grant. This got me thinking of the actress. Turns out her first acting role in a major film was as a minor character in Annie Hall in 1977. There was very little music in this film but there was a cover of Savoy Brown's "A Hard Way To Go".

Signourney Waver by John Grant. In da song he dus also menshuns Winona Ryder and the vampire movie wot dus be called Dracula. Annie Lennox sang a song wot was in the movie called Song For A Vampire. So we goes wiv Song For A Vampire … Annie Lennox.

So the winner as chosen by @claptonterrier dus be ......... @terenceterrier. Yay! Well done Tel me pal. Next week is you.

Ere wot CT said: Well Miss Lexie…what an extremely difficult choice to make this week even though we only have six entries. We did think about choosing the Savoy Brown song because of the syncopated drumming or the Annie Lennox song because of the lovely singing but in the end we have plumped for…*ahem*…the entirely unbiased choice of Bill Oddie’s Knitting Song…its a very much over-looked issue if you ask me…can you imagine a world in which the Beatle’s record label put out songs like this? Good gracious…
