Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Thirteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 213 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Kelso wiv A View To A Kill by Duran Duran. Let's see what we go this week:

A View to a Kill was a classic 80's Bond Theme. Another classic 80's Bond theme was The Living Daylights by A-Ha. A-Ha also did the classic Take On Me (not a bond theme) of which one of our favourite cover versions is by Punk ska band Reel Big Fish. So this is Reel Big Fish with Take On Me...

So, to follow on from 'A View to a Kill' (with something other than what I fink when I see those pesky squizzles) ... Well, a sniper would need a good view to hit his target. A good film about an assassin is 'The Day of the Jackal', about an attempt to assassinate President deGaulle, but I'm not going down that route, oh no. The film starred Mr Edward Fox (pesky foxes, grr) and it is Winter - though Spring officially starts today, I know, bear with - and so my choice is White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes.

Larst week’s winning linky woz “ A view to a kill “ by Duran Duran. We dun our homewerk and da Bond fillum wot da songy come from woz abowt an investigation of a horsey racing scam. Next week is da Cheltenham Festial wot be a big event for da hosses wot jump fings. Kauto Star woz a famuss steeplechaser wot won lots at da Festival n had a song ritted abowt him. So for my linky I gives yoo “Kauto Star” by Mark Boylan.

Well done with Duran Duran! The View to a Kill was the theme for a James Bond movie of the same name. I decided to stay in the thriller genre for my link, "Harlem Nocturne". It was the theme for the Mike Hammer detective TV show. It was also used in the 1983 cult movie "Christine", the version by the Viscounts which is my choice for the week.

Hello Miss Lexie…last week Mr Kelso chose a song by Duran Duran…they were famously named after a character in the sic-fi movie Barbarella….that made us think about other heroins in Sci Fi and of course we thought of Ripley from the Alien movies played by Sigourney Weaver….so this week our link is the beautiful “Sigourney Weaver” by John Grant…

Congrats pal & have fun picking this week. So was looking at all the great artists who have song Bond themes. One of my favorites is Tina Turner who also sang the theme of another series of movies. But thinking she may have been wrong cause we sure could use one. " We Don't Need Another Hero".

A View To a Kill sung by Duran Duran was from the movie called A View To A Kill wiv James Bond where yet another mad 'want to take over the world' type character aims to destroy Silicon Valley.  Annuva man wot wanted to take over the world was Dr Evil.His nemesis was Austin Powers, The Spy Who Shagged Me pokes fun at James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me. In the Spy Who Shagged Me Austin's wife is turned into a large-boobed fembot by Dr Evil. She tries to kill Austin, then self destructs. We are choosing a song from da movie wot is Beautiful Stranger from Madonna as our linky. 

My choice is Nancy Sinatra with Bang Bang. It i in keeping the theme of death and killing.

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

Ere wot Kelso said: Oh man it's so difficult this week.  Linky 1 is definitely my favourite song of the bunch but, for me, Linky 5 just edges the link of the week so Linky 5 is the winner :-)
