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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 243 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was me wiv Kirsty MacColl and Don't Come The Cowboy With Me:

Dats da last straw ! Iz taken all a fur can take ! Annuva win from dat DJ ! Dis old pal slaves over a hot n steaming poota every week to concoct a witty n cleva linky n still dussnt succeed. Iz quivering wiv all da effort. *bangs head against wall n kicks paws on da floor in tantrum* Iz going doolally. *empties valerian pills down froat to calm down* And B-R-E-A-T-H-E . Annuva song by Kirsty MacColl iz A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis. Sounds like he's also doolally. Dem folks wot be a sandwich short of a piknik get carted off to padded cells by da men in white coats. So my linky dis week be They're Coming To Take me Away Ha Ha. Da original woz by by Napolean X1V but I gives yoo a vershun by da aptly named NeuroticFish and da video shows clips of da Mad Hatter ( aka Johnny Depp ) from Alice in Wonderland wot be film from da crazy fantasy book by Lewis Carroll wot be a favrit of ours.

I must admit I love Kirsty MacColl and her song "Don't Come The Cowboy With Me" was a great choice. The song is about what nasty pieces of work a lot of men are to women, made me think the Nancy Sinatra song These Boots Are Made For Walking, which then got me thinking of boots and the hilarious film Kinky Boots, my choice is Kinky Boots - Cast Album Price and Sons Theme.

Hello Miss Lexie…last week you chose the song “don’t come the cowboy with me sunny Jim”…..poor Mr Jim….i think he probably liked being a cowboy….but being a cowboy is not all fun and games….sometimes they have to go on the run…..so this week our link Is “Ride Like the Wind” by Christopher Cross…it tells the story of a cowboy on the run from the law all the way to Mexico….

Well done with Kirsty Macoll! Something kept running through my pea brain, but "Not in These Shoes", was Cowboys. So, I chose a great video of some of the Nashville Greats joining together as the Highwaymen to sing, "Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys".

Ahhh! Great to be back to #Lexieschain! And da winner last week was DJ Lexie herself with Kristy Maccoll's " Don't Come the Cowboy with Me Sunny Jim. Kristy's life was ended to soon in a diving/boat accident in Mexico. While diving at night with her sons a boat came into their path, she saved her son Jamie by pushing him out of the boats way, losing her life. Her other son Louis was not in harm's way. Louis has carried on the musical tradition and is Ellie Gouldings manager. My pick " Beating Heart".

Lovely Lexie did win last week with a great song by Kirsty MacColl about not being a cowboy. Some of the cowboys Kirsty was singing about weren't being very friendly but our linky this week is about a cowboy you could always count on. The song is "You've got a friend in me" by Randy Newman and the cowboy is Woody from Toy Story.
