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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 284 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Terence Terrier wiv Elvis singin Bridge Over Troubled Water. Let's see what we gots this week:

Well done Sir with Bridge over troubled water.  Water is one of the 4 classic element, earth, wind or air, fire, and water.  The troubled US has been plagued this week with race related shootings. My links of the week are classic elements and trouble. Here is Bob Dylan with his classic, "Blowin' in the Wind". The vid is from a Live Aid concert so you might recognize 3 other stars.

Congrats Terence! So we have Elvis singing a cover . We all know Elvis's hometown is Memphis. My link this week is Marc Cohn's " Walking In Memphis" . According to Marc , he went to Memphis and Graceland when he was trying to break into the business for inspiration. Couldn't resist  a cover for a cover.

Tel won wiv Bridge Over Troubled Water sung by Elvis. Of course the song was made famous by Simon and Garfunkel. Paul Simon is going strong and just released new songs and we really like this one about not being able to get back into your own gig. However famous you be you still need a Wristband.


Well done Tel for winning last week with Elvis' version of "Bridge over troubled water". This week we are going with another Elvis with Elvis Costello and the Attractions and "Oliver's Army".

Elvis! Now that's my jam! I had a hard time choosing another version of that song, or another song by another singer who does it, but went with another Elvis song. "Teddy Bear" to go with your elite #keepfits position *tries to butter up* I used the Full House clip cuz it's so cute!

Elvis was the man! When he was first startin out singing and dancin he was told he wasn't allowed to swing his hips on stage. His nickname was Elvis the Pelvis and later he earned the honourable and fitting title of The King of Rock and Roll. Elvis married Priscilla and they had a daughter who was called Lisa Marie Presley. Lisa Marie Presley married Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson was also had the title of King ... King of Pop. So I'm going with a Michael Jackson song called You Are Not Alone. The video for the song stars Lisa Marie Presley.

An da winner as chosened by Terence dus be ................................. Walkin in Memphis from Skye! Yay well done me pal. You chooses next week!
