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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 279 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Megan wiv Valerie by The Zutons. Let's see what we got this week:

Well done with "Valerie". The song mentions a lovely ginger hair girl so I thought I would follow though on the red head link. Brooks and Dunn recorded a fun tune which also mentions a red head. I hope you enjoy "Boot Scootin' Boogie".

Last week Megan winned the chainy with " Valerie". The video for this tune was shot in a prison. Instantly Johnny Cash came to mind.  This legend recorded many tunes about prison life and often performed shows for inmates. Ironically, Cash never served time. This is a great duet with Waylon Jennings " Folsom Prison Blues".

last week our winner was Valerie by the Zutons….of course, this song became much more famous in the version sung by Amy Winehouse…and that got us thinking about songs where a cover version was better than the original…there are a few of these…All Along the Watchtower in its Dylan/Hendrix versions for example…but this week we have chosen a song called Heartbeats, made famous by Jose Gonzalez but originally recorded by a band called The Knife…(who?).

Larst week pal Megan winned wiv da linky “Valerie” by The Zutons. Dis wos also recorded by Amy Winehouse. A winehouse is a place where peeps make wine. In Spain little dogs wot look like Jack Russell Terriers were used to kill rats in da cellars at da wineries. So for my linkie I gives yoo The Winery Dogs n “Fooled Around And Fell In Love” (live vershun of corse like wot I woz tort to do by dear Tucker)

Last @cloonfourmegan won the chain with The Zutons and Valerie, I submit an unlikely entry with Peggy Seeger singing the Housewife's Alphabet this choice is because along with the comrade theme I think the loyalty of a wife is never recognised.

Well done @cloonfourmegan for the win with the Zutons and "Valerie". Our hoograndma always wanted to be called Valerie because she was born on Valentine's Day. So our song this week is "My Funny Valentine" performed by Ella Fitzgerald.

Valerie is a girls name. A famous Valerie is Valerie Singleton. She used to be on Blue Peter with John Noakes and Peter Purvis and a dog called Shep. Shep was a border collie. John Noakes had Shep from when he was a little puppy right til he died in 1977. So, this is my song for Shep, the Puppy Song from Nilsson.

An da winner as chosened by @cloonfourmegan dus be .................................oh no! is me pffttt. Well that mean's the old daddy-o will be doin the choosin next week.

Ere wot Megan said: Oh my wot clever interesting linkys this week. Humum used to have red hair so we like that & she do fink wives be underestimated (don't tell HuDad!) but we couldn't resist the story of Shep and it take mum back to her girlhood when she was a proper ginger! So we pick Linky 7.
