Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Eighteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 218 #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Harvey wiv River of Dreams. Let's see wot we gots dis week:

i woz so happy wen our pals @bunnersandharvs wun wiv River of Dreams by Billy Joel who be a pianist, singer-song writer n  composer. Sumwun else wot falls in dat category iz Elton John. Da winnin linky woz released in da 90's so I did a lookysee to find Sir Elton singing a songy wot I like from da same period. Dis week I gives you 'Sacrifice' as my linky. I best Tucker tradishun I gives yoo a live vershun to wotch n listen to.  (Lexie: ahh I dus miss Tucker, he was such a great player and friend)

Last weeks winner was Harvs with Billy Joel and River of Dreams. Billy sang about not knowing what he was looking for but going to the river every day to look. Maybe he should do what Lykke Li does and follow the river instead of just standing there! Maybe he'll find it then. So my choice this
week is Lykke Li with I Follow Rivers.

Well done with River of Dreams. Billy Joel has a rich history to draw upon and I chose Billy as a "piano man". A contemporary of Joel's, the incredible pianist Randy Newman also has a strong catalog. My tune was written by Newman, "Sail Away", which covers Jesus and crossing waters to find dreams. Joe Cocker does an amazing job with Newman's song.

last week mr Harvey chose a song called River of Dreams…and  that reminded us of a very old song that we recently heard being performed by some very young people….we liked it so much we are picking it as our link this week…its simply called “:River” and its by Joni Mitchell…

Great tune Harvs! Love Billy Joel. This week I share "Rapture" by Blondie. Heads shaking out there? How you gonna linky this tune you ask? Well rapture is defined as ....The carrying of a person to another place or sphere of existence. To sleep per chance to dream.

Well Harvs you won last week wif Billy Joel an River of Dreams. Did you know that Billy Joel was married to Christie Brinkley who wos in some of is videos? Did you also know that Christie Brinkley is a model? Our linky dus be models. Billy Joel dun a song called State of Grace, a very famous model turned singer dus be Grace Jones. So we are goin wiv Grace Jones and Slave to the Rhythm. Plus we like this video coz she is usin hoola hoop and mum just started power hoop! Hoopla!

Last weeks winner was @bunnersandharvs with Billy Joel's 'River of Dreams' which made me think about what sails on rivers - ships that's what. So I tried to think of songs about ships and remembered the marvellous 'Dignity' by Deacon Blue.

An da winner as chosed by Harvs @bunnersandharvs .............. dus be ................ Maggie (@maggietkat). Yay! Well done Maggie. You dus be choosins next week.
