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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 238 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was me wiv Yesterday from The Beatles. Let's see wot we got this week:

well done with "Yesterday" by the Beatles. yesterday was released on the album Help! I got thinking about how to give help to someone who was facing all their yesterdays. You can just "Lean on Me" by Bill Withers.

So yoo winned agin wiv The Beatles and Yesterday. A songy wot we like a lot. Da opposite of yesterday is tomorrow. So I searches & for my linky i finds a songy If Tomorrow Never Comes by Ronan Keating. Good advice in it cos it sez to tell people today how you feel cos tomorrow may be too late. Same applies to our furry friends and fambly. But I woz well trained by Tucker to go for a live vershun so I gives yoo dis duet wiv Lulu.

So last week the winning track was The Beatles with Yesterday. Beetles are little beasties and the Beatles were the original Boy Band so this week I've chosen Beastie Boys with Sabotage (because Dad knows all the words to Sabotage and the video is uber cool).

Well done @djladylexie for the winning link last week. Opportunity Knocks was hosted by Hughie Green who was Paula Yates father. Paula was best known as a TV presenter and writer but was also a recording artist.  She appeared on a version of 'These boots are made for walking' in 1982 with B.E.F., a band which included Martyn Ware & Ian Craig Marsh from Human League & Heaven 17 fame. So delving once more into the rich vein of 80's pop, our link this week is our most fav song from that decade  "Don't You Want Me" by The Human League.

One of the most famous Beatles songs of all time was composed in a dream, one night in 1965 , by Paul McCartney. " Yesterday "  was recorded as a solo with none of the others playing according to conflicting sources . In Jack White's first solo album he also recorded a song that came to him in a dream both the characters and the melody. He woke himself up to write it down. It is said that McCartney woke & hurried to a piano so as not to lose the tune . Enjoy " Blunderbluss".

Hello Miss Lexie…the last winning song was Yesterday by the Beatles….the opposite of yesterday is tomorrow…tomorrow, and tomorrow and tomorrow…that is a line from Macbeth by William Shakespeare….but, oops, you are not supposed to say the name of that play and instead refer to it it as "the Scottish play"…so this week our link is to a fine Scottish band….”In a Big Country” by Big Country….

So Lexie did win with a cleva linky "Yesterday" by da Beatles. We loves dat songy but you know as paws, we only lives in da moment so dat our linky dis week by Jason Mraz called 'Living in the Moment' simple song but a sweet one too. Good luck choosing Lexie's Dad and here's to a happy week to all da pals.

So the winner, as chosen by dad ..................................................... dus be  ................................. @bunnersandharvs wiv Living In the Moment.

Ere wot me dad said: I liked all the links as always, but this one was lovely and simple (bit like Lex herself). I' keep telling her mum that dogs live in the moment.
