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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 253 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Maggie wiv Maple Leaf Rag by Scott Joplin. So let's see what we gots this week.

So this week I tries to stay away from the obvious but I got to thinking about the roots of rock & roll. Not only was ragtime one of the roots  but also the blues. Here's one of rocks greatest singing a song by one of the greatest blues singers of all time. Enjoy!

Well done Maggie on another great win. The Maple Leaf is the national symbol of Canada and we pick one fantastic Canadian singer KD Lang singing perhaps the best known song of Canadian legend Leonard Cohen. Hallelujah!

Larst week pal Maggie winned wiv da Saxophonics n “Maple Leaf Rag” writted by Scott Joplin. Being just a simple paw I fort praps Janis Joplin MAYBE related to him. So I chooses her songy “Maybe” as my linky

So Maggie did win last week with a Scott Joplin songy Maple Leaf Rag. Dis makes us think about crossing generations, making classic songs and maple leafs makes us think about colder weathur and Winter Wonderlands....soooooo you gots it, our linky is Winter Wonderland. It's also a classic but here a new vershun by Michael Boobly *snorts*. Have fun chosin, dis week Maggie. Hugs to all da pals and we hopes you is safe and well, whur eva you are.

Very last I am afraid Miss Lexie…anyhoo….last week the winning song was Maple Leaf Rag…the maple leaf of course is the national symbol of Canada..(those crazy Canucks)…so this week our link is a song from Canada’s finest…Summer of 69 by Bryan Adams…BOL

@MaggieTKat won last week with "Maple Leaf Rag" by Scott Joplin. Scott Joplin was also famous for a song called "The Entertainer" which was used as the theme music for the Oscar winning film The Sting. Our link this week is on the theme of entertainment with "That's Entertainment" by The Jam.

Last week we Saxophics win with Maple leaf rag, this pure Scot Joplin whose The Entertainer was used in the Film The Sting. Keeping to films Paul Newman also starred in Exodus with the fabulous theme music by Ernest Gold.

Maple Leaf Rag hmmm well let's see. Rag is short for ragtime a syncopated rhythm. Syncopation is used in many musical styles and is used heavily in dance music. For example the cha cha is a syncopated dance. So, for your syncopated wiggling pleasure I gives you my cha cha linky: Oye Como Va by Santana!
