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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 255 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Clapton wiv Praise You from Fat Bot Slim. Let's see what we got dis week (the penultimate chainy of 2015!):

Larst week little Clapton winned wiv “Praise You” by Fatboy Slim.  Hiz real name iz Norman Cook n he used to play in The Housemartins.  Dey had a hit wiv “Caravan of Love” wot woz numba 1 in da charts dis very week back in 1986 . It woz a capella songy.  Da first one to go to numba 1 woz “Only You” by “The Flying Pickets” n dis be my chosen linky.

Ok, I see that last week's winner was Clapton with Fatboy Slim's Praise You. I also see Mr Norman Cook was in the news this week coz his Bride Mrs Zoe Ball did snog someone else :-O From researching Mr. Cook I also see his real name is Quentin which is almost as posh as Elton John's real name wot be Reginald! As well as being posh both Norman and Elton have invested lots of money into their favourite footie teams (Brighton & Hove Albion & Watford respectively). Since Zoe should have been kissing her Groom rather than some boyband member this made me think of the excellent Elton song Kiss The Bride which is my link this week. Which would have been a much less tenuous link if it was Norman who was doing the kissing ;-)

Last week's winner was Clapton with Fatboy Slim's Praise You. Praising is a big part of gospel music and this week a new gospel type song has been a massive earworm in our house.  So, I'm passing this earworm on to you all as our choice for this week's chain. Be warned, it's catchy. It's Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats with S.O.B.

Fat Boy Slim, Praise You. Well as we all know Fatboy Slim's real name dus be Norman Cook and is well known as a famus DJ which is actually what he is. DJ's play music at nightclubs, parties and weddings. White weddings are where the bride where's a white dress to her wedding. A white wedding seemed to annoy Billy Idol quite a bit so I'm goin wiv White Wedding Billy Idol.

Well done Clapton with praise you. The title reminds me of this time of year and memories of Christmas past. Mum says that she has a German lineage, and one of her favorite memories is a song, silent night. Her cousin performed in German, and the memory of his baritone voice drifting across the worshippers still brings a chill. Here is the Dresden boys choir singing Stille Nacht.

Well done to Clapton for winning with FatBoy Slim Praise You. FatBoy Slim aka Norman Cook is married to Zoe Ball who was on Strictly Come Dancing and this weekend is the Strictly final so as big fans we pick the Strictly theme tune complete with dance actions for Mr C to try out!

Our pal Clapton's linky had Fatboy Slim saying " Praise You" . Hallelujah , ma friends,  How about some " Respect" too?

Well dun to dat Clapton fur his winning linky Praise You last week. We wos thinking bout how Fatty Boy says he dus praise hur and celebrates hur and just wants to be together... Soooooo we thorts about dat and how it gonna be Christmas dis week and akshully all we wants at Christmas is to be wid da ones dey luvs which is why our linky is All I Want Fur Trissymoose Is You' by Mariah Carey. Have fun choooosin dis week my pal and we hopes dat everyone's Christmas is merry and bright.

Clapton Terrier won last week with Fat Boy Slim singing Praise You, in the spirit of the season I spontaneously of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handels oratorio Messiah

@claptonterrier won the chain last week with Praise You by Fatboy Slim who is aka Norman Cook. Norman was famously in The Housemartins who had their only No 1 single with "Caravan of Love". Now surprisingly this is not the only song about caravans and our link this week is "Spanish Caravan" by The Doors. Happy Christmas everyone.
