Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Nineteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 219 #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Maggie wiv Sail Away sung by Joe Cocker. Let's see wot we gots dis week:

I have to admit to never having heard of Sail Away before but it's fantastic! And such powerful lyrics. My first thoughts were Oh My Dog this is fab! I then tried to find a link to sailing songs :-/ Then it happened again and I thought Oh My Dog I've got it.....OMD! Yes that's it OMD with Sailing on the Seven Seas :-).

Larst week pal @maggietkat did win da chainy wiv da linky “Sail Away” sung by Joe Cocker. Easy Peasy to fink of a linky dis week ! I chooses “Sailing” by Rod Stewart. But for those of yoo who fink I should try harder wiv my linky I points owt dat both Joe Cocker n Rod Stewart were born wivin a year of each uvver n dey both furst became famuss in da 60’s. Dey both bin to Buck House to get awards from da Queen too. Dats enuff I fink.

Last weeks winner was Maggie with a song called "Sail Away". Wobbly headed lovely man David Gray also did a song called that so we've chosen our favourite song of his, "The Other Side". It's a very sad song written when he was grieving for his father but it's very beautiful.

Last week dear MaggietKat won with Sail Away I listened to it many times and I kept thinking of Rod Stewart's I am Sailing, I had no choice but to give that as my entry for this weeks Lexies Chain.

Sail Away .. Well wot do you need to sail away wiv .. A boat of course!A sailboat one might say. So we are choosin a song wiv a boat in it wot dus be Rio from Duran Duran (also Simon Le Bon Bons boat name).

So Maggie did win with a great tune from Joe Cocker " Sail Away" . My first thought was on what ? The River maybe. On his 1980 album the boss told the world he was a rocker. Duh! Didn't have to tack to figure that out.

Hello Miss Lexie…last week Miss Maggie chose a song by Randy Newman as her link….well, that made us think about a song that always makes us chuckle…the satirical song “Short People”…..ahem….a song close to my own heart….

Well dun to dat Maggie fur da winning linky last week Sail Away by Joe Cocker. We dus like da idea of dreams and sailing and so we going wid an old songy wot Mum used to lkye. It by Christopher Cross and called 'Sailing'. Enjoy choosin your linky dis week, Maggie. Just remember, paradise int neva far when der noms and hugs close by. Happy week evapawdy.

Clever Maggie came up wiv Sail Away last week, which is about pursuing dreams that aren't quite what they seem, as the American Dream didn't apply to slaves.  We have gone for a song written during the Falklands War, which describes the revived fortunes of dockyard workers who are temporarily brought out of poverty because they have ships to build,  but that is only because of ships 'sailing away' but being sunk and others losing their lives. Not a cheerful topic, but a magnificent song! robert wyatt shipbuilding:

Last week's link from @maggietkat was Sail Away by Randy Newman. From one Newman to another (Gary) Numan - Cars.

An da winner as chosen by Maggie (@maggietkat) dus be ............................ *facepalm* well well .. King of the Chain .. Kelos!! heehee. Well done me pal - annuva great win! You choosin next week.
