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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 235 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Skye wiv Drake's Take Care. Lets see wot we got dis week:

Skye winned larst week wiv Drake's Take Care ft Rihanna. I wotched da video n saw arrows being shot at a bull. Dis made me fink of poor Cecil da lion wot woz shot wiv an arrow n then killed dis week. So in honour of Cecil I gives you a linky  sung by Matt Munro wot be da feem from da film Born Free wot be abowt Elsa da lion.  Da two lead actors Virginnia McKenns n Bill Adams later helped set up da Born Free Foundation wot helps lions and lotsa uvver wild animals. (ps read all abowt it here

Last week's winner was Skye with Drake and Take Care. A Drake is a boy duck and that took me to songs about birds or mentioning birds. So my choice this week is the wacky They Might Be Giants with Birdhouse in your Soul.

Congrats Skye with Drake's Take Care. That song was based on the Brook Benton chart  I'll Take Care of You which was a 1960 hit by Bobby Blue Bland. Brook was a singer in his own right and had a hit in 1970 with "Rainy Night in Georgia".

Last week's song chosen by @syke613 'Take Care' is about mending broken hearts, building trust and moving on. Our choice this week by Green Day is also about moving on but making the best of a test and having the time of your life. "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)".

last week Miss Skye mentioned that the video for her song was made in 2012 and that made us think about the Olympics….the first event we saw in the 2012 Olympics was the cycling as we live close to the course….so this week we have picked a song we first heard on the credits of a cycling programme…it took us about a month to track down who it was…so my link this week if the brilliant Silver Lining by Fist Aid Kit…

Last week Skye won wiv Take Care about mendin broken earts. Sadly, some hearts can never mend especially when they dus lose the love of they life. Today we did ear that Cilla Black died and they dus say that her heart never mended after losing the love of her life her husband Bobby Willis. So we dedicate this song to the star that was Cilla Black wiv Anyone Who Had A Heart. RIP Cilla and Bobby, together again.

So the winner, as chosen by Skye ..................................................... dus be again! Pffffftttttt. Dad on alert for choosin.

Ere wot Skye said; Wow ! What great links! And I must say am always a sucker for links that incorporate currents events and wonderful tunes. This week I chose link # 6 as Cilla Black has been a favorite and sorry to see she passed.  Was hard cause I also really liked #5. Thanks pals! Happy week!
