Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Thirty Fourth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 234 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Wyn (@wotterface) wiv Run Boy Run from Woodkid. Let's see wot we got dis time:

Last week @wotterface won with Run Boy Run by wood kid I really struggled with this one but have to give it a go, I'm using running as the link, my choice is the theme music from the film Chariots of Fire.

larst week da winnin linky woz Run Boy Run by Woodkid . Weird. Really weird.  Anyhows I had to vestigate . Seems dis Woodkid chappie became moozishun cos he woz given ukulele by Ritchie Havens. RH became faymuss afta doing opening stint at 1969 Woodstock festival ( see dat ties da wood bit in nicely). So I takes a lookysee at weva any of our favrit bands were there. Yep ! The Who. So I gives yoo dem perform My Generation  at dat very furst Woodstock.

This is only the second time I have heard Woodkid. And I like him very much. In the vid for my link Drake - Take Care - you can see the early influence he developed in the vid for " Run Boy Run" . This video was done in 2012. The themes of darkness, animals and hope abound in his direction of these videos.

Well dis week's linky is Run Boy Run wot Wotterface did win last week. We did think that wos a good songy and it did make us think that when you runs you gets stronger so we going simples dis week wid Kelly Clarkson's 'Stonger' cos not only dus  it be a supa songy when you running it a makes you feel good too.

Me really like Woodkid fanx for introducin me to im. I has absolutely no reason to this but for some reason it reminds me of Bronski Beat an Smalltown Boy. Running away .. you can never really run away from your life, it goes wiv you wherever you go.

Loved @wotterface song Run Boy Run by Woodkid last week.  Well if the boy did run he would be a "Real Gone Kid" Deacon Blue. Woohoowoohoo.

Well done with Run by Snow Patrol. I figured that if you run, you can roam where you want to. By the B52's.

So the winner, as chosen by Wyn ..................................................... dus be ................................Skye! (@skye613). Yay well done me pal. You choosin next week Skye!

Ere wot Wyn said: This week I decided I'd pick a song I'd never heard before but then all the links were songs I'd heard already! What are the chances?! So instead I've chosen the song I was least likely to choose but surprised myself, especially as I didn't know Woodkid directed the video and it makes me listen to the song completely differently watching the video. This week's winner is link 3!
