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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 249 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was me wiv The Man That Got Away from Judy Garland. Let's see what we go dis week!

Lady Lexie won last week with the Man That Got Away by Judy Garland. My choice is with Remembrance Sunday in mind we have to think of the millions of men that got away so I choose Marlene Deitrich singing Where Have All The Flowers Gone. Marlene Deitrich was born in 1901, so she would have been a young girl during that terrible war.

Last week's winner was a song called "The Man That Got Away". That's usually what we say about fish...the one that got away (and it's usually massive) so my choice this week is Reel Big Fish..

@djladylexie did win last week with a song by Judy Garland - "The man that .......". Scottish band Travis' second album was called The Man Who. Our choice this week is from that album and kinda describes living in the west coast of Scotland - "Why does it always rain on me".

Well done Lexie with Judy Garland and The Man that Got Away.  Harold Arlen was the composer and he had many hit songs. I have 2 links today, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland's daughter, and a song by Arlen with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, Blues in the Night.

Larst week yoo winned wiv Judy Garland n “The Man That Got Away” . As yoo all noes wen she was kiddie she starred in da film “Wizard of Oz” as Dorothy n she wore red shoos wot were magic. Corse if yoo wear red shoes dey say it means dat yoo gots no nickers. But I fink if yoo haz red shoos it means yoo problee gots dem to match a pretty red dress . So my linky gonna be “Lady in Red” by Chris De Burgh.

Well cleva Lexie won last week's chainy wid good old Judy Garland's 'The Man That Got Away'. We says when you suffered sadness you needs to go to a place whur der int no sadness and der's always happy and you neva finds trubbble or nothing like dat. Soooooo, we going wid a linky 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow'. Judy sang it furst but we going wid Israel 'IZ' Kamakawiwo'ole's version. Have fun chooosin, Daddy J.

The wonderful Judy Garland won last week. Her most famous song was Somewhere Over The Rainbow. Many people have covered that song but our favourite is by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole who died too young making this version even more poignant.

run-run…very late Miss Lexie!…last week you chose a song by Judy Garland…one of the first child stars…so this week we are choosing another more recent song by child starts Hanson…and our link is Mmmmbop.

Ere wot dad said: Wow! What an interesting mix of songs and links. It was difficult to choose especially as it is Remembrance Sunday today. The Marlene Dietrich link was very moving but in the true spirit of chain I am going to go with the Liza Minnelli link. Well done.
