Lexie's Chain: The Two Hundred and Eighty First Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 281 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner Skye wiv Ole Blue from The Byrds. Let's see what we got this week:

Last weeks winner was a sad song about Old Blue so I decided to go with a happy song this week, also with a colour in the title. Coldplay and Yellow...

Larst week pal Skye winned wiv “Old Blue” by The Byrds.  From a songy abowt a bloo oldie I duss a nifty sidestep to a songy abowt a yellow oldie – “Old Yellow Dog” by Sheldon Chant.

Hello Miss Lexie…last week Miss Skye won with the song Old Blue…i discovered that this is a famous old folk song from the 19th century….and that got me to thinking of other old songs which have been made famous again by pop music…and this week my link is a song that traces its roots back (some say) to as long ago as 1650…its Whisky In The Jar…and sung here by the band Thin Lizzy in the 1970s...

Greetings @skye613 won last week with Old Blue 1969, good choice I'm so glad that the doggy theme is kept up. Here is an old favourite of mine also a dog theme, Me and You and a Dog Named Boo.

Last week Skye won wiv Old Blue which did bring tear to mum's eye . Old Blue also refers to someone who went to the University of California Berkley so we pick Beach Boys with California Girls

Well done Skye with The Byrds! I was so excited to form links with this song. Gene Clark was one of the founding members of The Byrds. Gene was recruited/left/fired from The New Christy Minstrels. One tune that has him listed but he may never really have played on is the ballad "Today".

Well done Skye for winning last week with "Ole Blue" by The Byrds.  Now we dogs & cats love watching the birds, albeit for slightly nefarious purposes. The vocalist in our band this week is also a keen bird watcher & has a PhD in ornithology which probably explains our link - "Watching Birds" by Stornoway.

Blue is very popular word in music. Blue is a feeling, blue is a colour, blue is a name, blue is a type of music. Frank Sinatra was called Old Blue Eyes coz his eyes were blue. I like this song wot managed to mix colour of eyes wiv feelin blue. I gives you Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue from Crystal Gale, who despite the title of the song actually had blue eyes :).

An da winner as chosened by @skye613 dus be ................................. nooooooooooooo!!!Is me again oh flip. Dad ain't gonna be appy.

Ere wot Skye said: Great links this week, every one of them are winners.  Hard pressed to chose between # 3, # 5 and # 8. But getting a twofer in colors hits the spot. # 8 is the winner!
