Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Seventy Sixth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 276 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was me wiph Everybody Needs Somebody from The Blues Brothers. Let's see what we got this week.

@djladylexie won the link last week with "Everybody needs somebody" by the Blues Brothers. Now everybody does need somebody but secretly everybody wants to rule the world, which was a song by Tears for Fears. Joe Strummer believed that TFF stole that line from his song "Charlie Don't Surf" and asked Roland Orzabal for a fiver in royalties which he duly paid. So for our link the week we are staying with The Clash and gives you "London Calling" coz who doesn't love a bit of rebellion against the establishment.

larst week Lexie winned wiv “Everybody Needs Somebody” by The Blues Brothers from da film Clip.  Da band woz originally started by Dan Belushi and Dan Aykroyd but lotsa uvva peeps have played wiv dem including Steve Cropper who woz lead and rhythm guitarist wiv Booker T & the MG’s. So for my linky I looks no further than their sixties hit single “Green Onions” wot mum remembas well. If yoo desperate for more to link dem den I sez blue n green both be colours *desperate ears*. I corse gives yoo a live vershun to enjoy n wot aktchewally be much betta than the original 45 recording.

Last week Lexie won with the Blues Brothers. As it is Eurovision weekend there is much singing about friendship and brotherhood. So we choose a song from the days of Eurovision when we used to win before Australia was in Europe. Ladies and gentlemen I give you Brotherhood of Man!

I really love your choice, The Blues Brothers' Everybody Needs Somebody. I love this film and lost count how many times I watched it.The critics really panned it, but the public loved it, my choice this week is from the same film which is Cab Calloway with Minnie the Moocher.

Congrats DJ Lexie! And we all know that Everybody needs somebody but what if they are still looking? Trying to find that Someone, who maybe doesn't see you anymore.  Well "What's a boy in love supposed to do? " Oh L'Amour ".

Well done Lexie with "Every Needs Somebody". I decided to keep this chain simple. The iconic song in The Blue Brothers  movie is Sweet Home Chicago. The song has been covered extensively and is featured in almost every club on Clark and Halsted Streets. This version is at the White House with an incredible blues all stars band. If that isn't enough, keep watching for a guest vocalist.

Last week's winner was you with The Blues Brothers and Everybody Needs Somebody to Love. John Belushi was one of the Blues Brothers and he was in some of the National Lampoons films. Someone else who was in a lot of the National Lampoons films was Chevy Chase and he was famously in the video for Paul Simon's You Can Call Me Al. So that is my choice this week.

An da winner as chosened by me dad dus be ................................. Megan wiph Bruvverood of Man.

Ere wot dad said: I absolutely detest Eurovision so Eurovision it is! Brexit Brexit Brexit! [yeah thanks for that Dad very err ..... informative response .... pffttttt]
