Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Sixty Eight Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 268 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was me wiv Annie Lennox an Little Bird. Let's see wots we got this week.

Last week dear Lexie was very clever with her fab link to that fab
lady Annie Lennox, little bird. That was from a fabulous album "Diva"which in 1992 mum played all the time, and is still a favourite. Annie, was a clever lady and was a member of an iconic band the eurythmics, so our link is back to the Eurythmics and their hit "Sweet
Dreams " with the same titled album.

Congratulations @claptonterrier, delighted with your choice, I have to keep the "bird" theme going, my choice is Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep by Middle of the Road, 1971. I know it's before your time , but it's foot tapping, smile making fun.

Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winning song was “Little Bird”…..I think that the wren is a very tiny bird…so this week my linky is “jenny Wren” by Paul McCartney….

So Sir Clapton picked the DJ Lexie to win with " Little Bird" by Annie Lennox. That little bird has flown the coop but Bowie's little bird can"t. Oh my ! Dodo.

Last week Lexie won with Annie Lennox and Little Bird. Annie was once in a band called The Tourists who had a hit with this song but we pick the original Dusty version. Dad also do have this as ringtone when Mum ring him! Aaaaah romantic!

Last week the winner was you with Annie Lennox and Little Birds. In the video she had lots of other people pretending to be her so the song we've chosen this week is Dani California by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers because in the video they dress up as lots of other people, see if you know them all...

arst week pal Lexie winned wiv “Little Bird” by Annie Lennox.  Bantams be lickle birds of da poultry kind n dey lives in a chicken house at night to keep dem safe. Chicken Shack be a British blues band. So for my linky dis week I gives you their 1969 hit “I’d Rather Go Blind”.


Well done Lexi on Annie Lennox with Little Bird. I became aware of Annie as The Eurythmics in the early Mtv era. Their song, Sweet dReams (are made of this) was released in 1983. The Kajagoogoo album White Feather was also released in 1983 and contained the one hit wonder Too Shy. So my chain is Little Bird-Annie Lennox- Eurythmics-Sweet Dreams-1983-Kajagoogoo-white feather (birds. Get it. Ha!)-Too Shy.

So we gots us a linky from Lexie's fabydoo of a linky last week frum Annie Lennox's songy  Little Bird and how she wishes she could fly and be released cos she so sad and feels burdened. So, dat makes us think about da songy by The Band 'I Shall Be Released' cos even tho some people is sad and feels burdens and has hardships, our day will come and we will be set free. 

@Dogstoyevsky won last week with Annie Lennox & "Little Bird". Annie Lennox studied flute at the Royal Academy of Music & was a flautist with the Dragon's Playground early in her career. Now our Auntie is also a flautist & has played in lots of films, musicals and orchestras. However, we have just found out that she also played on the album "Dear Catastrophe Waitress" by Belle and Sebastian. So our link this week is from that album - "Wrapped Up in Books".
