Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Forty First Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 241 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Clapton wiv Tom Petty and Refoogee. Let's see what we gots this time.

Larst week  little Clapton winned wiv Refugee by Tom Petty. Da 75th anniversary of da Battle of Britain wot ended WW2 being commerated next munf.  Lotsa refugees from dat war were Jewish. So I looks for a Jewish singer for da linky n find lots. In da end I chooses Mark Knopfler n da rather appropriate songy Brothers In Arms . Dis vershun be live in Berlin a city wot woz split in half afta da war.

Well done @claptonterrier for a great song and a great sentiment last week. In the song Tom Petty says that we all had to fight to be free. So this week we give you "Freedom Come All Ye" performed by Lorraine McIntosh and written by Hamish Henderson.

Congratulations Clapton with the Tom Petty number, "Refugee" which charted in 1980. Petty sang about a girl who has walled herself off from love. Although not quite the same, a man realized he had been messing around on his girl and was trying to turn it around. This version of "Working my way back to you" by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles also charted in 1980. I am including a video from Soul train and a flash mob version. Who says you can't herd humans!

So our linky dis week is Tom Petty's 'Refugee' wot was Clapton's linky and a good one it was too. We did read dem wurds agin and thort dat all da sadness and anger and hurt dem Refugees is going through means we needs to change da world which gots us thinking about da Beatles song, 'Revolution'. Everyone has da right to be free and be alright. Have fun selecting da linky, Clapton and have a great week, eva pawdy!

A poignant linky this week from clapton. Well the world is in a great big mess really ain' t it wot wiv one fing and annuva. Somehow we dus need to make it a better place. No-one said it better than the King of Pop imself when he sang that very line, for you and for me and entire human race (and animals but not sure he said that). So that's my linky. Michael Jackson and Heal the World.

An the winner ... as chosened by Clapton dus be ................ Maggie! Yay well done me pal you choosin next week!
