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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 254 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Megan wiv K D Lang and Hallelujah. Letr's see what we got dis week:

Hello Miss Lexie..last week we had a song called “hallelujah”… we have not strayed far from that theme this week…Hallelujah means praise the Lord and so this week our linky is “Praise You” by Fatboy Slim.

Well done with "Hallelujah". Leonard Cohen was a poet and composer. One of his poems "Suzanne lay me down" was transformed into a song "Suzanne". The song was recorded by many artists, but the version I associate with the song is by Neil Diamond.

Congrats to @cloonfourmegan . "Hallelujah " is, as you said, perhaps the best known song of Leonard Cohens having been covered more than 60 times. My choice this week is another cover of a Leonard Cohen song. This was released on Judy Collins Wildflowers album . M played that album until it warped. BOL

Larst week pal Megan winned wiv “Hallelujah” singed by K D Lang but writted by Leonard Cohen. Dis luvvly songy bin covered by lotsa artists. I discover dat one veshun be in “Shrek” wot be a film wot we often see at Crispmouse on da telly. So I looks for unnuva songy from da fillum n chooses “I’m on my way” by The Proclaimers cos it be a happy toon to cheer Megan up cos she pooly afta mergency op.

Nice cover of Hallelujah from K D Lang. She sang the song live at the Winter Olympics in 2010 wot was in Vancouver. Joni Mitchell also sang at the cerenomy. she sang Both Sides Now. So I dus be gowin wiv Both Sides Now.

An da winner as chosened by Megan dus be ....................................... Clapton wiv Fat Boy Slim and Priase You ! Yay, well done me pal, you dus be choosin next week.

Ere wot Megan said: Oooh what lovely clever linkys. I iz recovering from my op and this do have cheered me up proper! It be very hard to choose but I does go wiv Linky 1 cos it be clever, a good toon and we luvs the video! Mum wants to be in dat dance troupe!
