Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Fortieth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 240 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was me wiv Love and Anger from Kate Bush. So let's see wot we got this week:

Larst week yoo won agin with Love and Anger by Kate Bush wot be da person who duss strange dancing an became famuss wiv da songy Wuthering Heights wot inspired by da novel of da same name by Emily Bronte. However da band Genesis also released an album in 1976 Wind and Wuthering. Da titles of track 7 Unquiet Slumbers For the Sleepers ...n 8  ...In That Quiet Earth come from closing bit of da novel. Dey be linked instrumental tracks and be my linky dis week.

Last week's winner was you, again, with Kate Bush singing about Love and Anger. Well if you're angry about love then it's not a very good love, is it? Some might say it's Tainted Love.

Hello Miss Lexie…last week you chose a song called Love and Anger…well, that is what we have been seeing on the news all week with the dreadful reports about the poor refugees fleeing across Europe…it breaks our heart…we feel love for them…but some feel nothing but anger…so in memory of the poor little boy who lost his life on that Turkish beach we are choosing the song “Refugee” by Tom Petty. The final verse and chorus say

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some
Who knows maybe you were kidnapped tied up,
Taken away and held for ransom
Honey, it don't make no difference to me, baby
Everybody has to fight to be free, you see
You don't have to live like a refugee

Love love Kate Bush. She wrote " Love & Anger ", two of the most powerful emotions to experience. Erasure sings that we can " Turn The Love To Anger" perhaps not the best idea but it does make for a great Lexieschain linky!

Well done Lexie with Kate Bush's Love and Anger. One of the lines in the song was "a little piece of hope". This reminded me of another song with the title "Piece of my Heart" by Janis Joplin.

Well Lexie won agin last week wid an eggcepshunal linky by Kate Bush who sung about Love and Anger. We thort about love and anger and how it can tear people apart but it can also make something good and so we going wid an oldie but a goodie dis week by John Lennon. It is da songy, Imagine. Why? Well, it not only talks about living for today but we also saw a quote by him saying "Song writing is about getting the demon out of you. It's like being possessed. You try to go to sleep but the song won't let you. So you have to get up and make it into something, and then you're allowed to sleep." So we thort he kind of had a love hate relationship wid da music wot was inside him too.

Good luck wid choosing da linky and welcome home too.

Love and Anger by Kate Bush was @djladylexie winning link last week.   The title of this song did remind us of the band Love and Money so we spent ages trying to find a link to their song "all you need is ..... love and money". During our unsuccessful search we discovered that L&M's James Grant had worked with Capercaillie's Karen Matheson. So, our link this week is a rather haunting love song which they collaborated on called "The Dreaming Sea",

Ere wot dad said: All the links are very good but the Genesis link is a superb chain worthy of mention. Imagine from John Lennon is poignant in view of recent events.  I am torn between those two and the Tom Petty link that illustrates how terribly wave suffer and cause suffering to others. However, to honour the child and all other children who have lost their lives due to conflict and war over many many decades, I'm going with Tom Petty link, but it was very hard to choose this week. 

So it's over to you. Email me: lexie at toxicpenguin dot com or DM me on twitter (@dogstoyevsky) wiv your link suggestion followin on from dis one! You has until 13th September 2015 (gets it to me by 2pm UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.
