Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Seventieth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 2870 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was me wiv Eric Clapton an Wonderful Tonight. Let's see what we gots this week!

Last week clever lexie chose Wonderful Tonight by that lovely chap Eric Clapton. There are many famous Claptons in this world. One very close to our hearts, which made mum think back to another dear friend and great songster Bob Marley.

So our linky , however tenuous is Bob Marley singing the sun is shining. Because it is in Cordoba, which is where we are today.


Hello Miss Lexie…..last week you chose a song by Eric Clapton which was famously written abut his supermodel girlfriend Patti Boyd.  Miss Boyd had previously been the girlfriend of George Harrison. These rock stars never keep the same girl for long. So this week our link is “This Year’s Girl” by Elvis Costello.

Well done Lexi with Clapton's beautiful ballad Wonderful Tonight.  Back in 1988, Dire Straits asked Eric to play back up for the celebration of Nelson Mandela's 70th birthday. At that concert The band played a surprise version of Eric's ballad. I chose a Dire Straits number from that 1988 Wembly concert, "Walk of Life". 


Well done on last weeks win *coughfixcough* with Eric Clapton and Wonderful Tonight. I did some reading up on old Slow Hand and discovered he's a Ferrari collector. Another Ferrari collector immediately sprang to mind: Jay Kay from Jamiroquai. So here is my favourite Jamiroquai song, King For A Day.

I dussnt really feel like playing dis week cos my good pal Patch (who used to play lexieschain when he woz younger) also went OTRB Easter weekend. But I gives it a go. Larst week yoo gives us da winnin linkie “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton wiv Katie Kissoon backin. Da songy wot I fink of straight off woz “Tonight Tonight” from West Side Story. Dis versun be wiv Lea Salonga n John Barrowman (always AKA Capt Jack in dis home).

Last week Lexie won wiv Eric Clapton. Mr Slow Hand was born in Ripley Surrey. Surrey has been fertile ground for musicians including the Jam and this is one of our fave Jam songs.

Well done to @Dogstoyevsky for the winning link last week with Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight". This week we are sticking with the links wonderful and night with ... eer..."Wonderful Night" by Fatboy Slim.
