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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 288 of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Bertie wiv Where Do You Go To Me Luverly from Peter Sarsedt or summat. Let's see what we gots this week:

Well done with "where do you go..."  Mum shared an aisle with Cuba Gooding, Senior on a plane recently. It was quite exciting and he took pictures with everyone. Surreal experience.  (Cuba, Jr is the academy award actor.) Cuba, Sr. was the lead in The Main Ingredient. He told Mum that when love goes, "Everybody Plays the Fool".

Larst week Sir Bertie winned da chainy wiv “Where Do You Go to My Lovely” by Peter Sarstedt wot woz a hit in da 60’s. Dey do say dat he had movie star Sophia Loren in mind wen he writted dat song cos she grew up in back streets of Naples. Altho best known as actress she did record an album of funny songs wiv Peter Sellers. Cos all furs luvs sossidges I give yoo da songy “Bangers and Mash”  wot got released as a single also in da 60’s n made da charts.

Hello Miss Lexie…last week we had a winner by Peter Sarsted…and I noticed that he was born in Delhi in India…a child of the old Raj….another famous musician who was also born in India was Cliff Richard…so this week our link is “We Don’t Talk Anymore” by Sir Clifff.

Last week Bertie won wiv Peter Sarstedt where do you go to my lovely? Mr Sarstedt also had a top ten hit with Frozen Orange Juice so we skip a couple of decades and choose the group Orange Juice with Rip it Up

Well done Bertie! The Ivors are presented annually by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. In 1970 " Where Do You Go To ( My Lovely ) " won the best song musically and lyrically. Among the other winners that year were Barry Mason, John Lennon & David Bowie. Bowie won a special award for originality with this great song!

@diamondbertie won the chain with "Where do you go to my lovely" by Peter Sarstedt. This song was said to be DJ John Peel's least favourite song so we have chosen his favourite song as our link this week, "Teenage Kicks" by The Undertones

where do you go to my loverly. Well this was about a young french girl Marie Claire wot found fame and fortune. There are many references to famous people in the song. One reference dus be Marlene Dietrich. A great song of hers - Lili Marleen was also about lost love.

An da winner as chosened by Bertie dus be ................................. @terenceterrier wiv Bangers n Mash wiv Peter Sellers an Sophia Loren! Well done me pal  (again!!) you dus be choosin next week.

Ere wot Bertie said: What a great list of excellent links, I found each choice a good one. I narrowed it down to my two favourites number 2 link Bangers and Mash with Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren, this was funny. Link number 7 Lily Marleen sung by Marlene Dietrich, this lady will always have a soft spot in my heart, I met this beautiful lady when I was at the House of Commons (with the college) when I saw her in company of Bessie Braddock, I walked over to her to thank her for the pleasure her songs and films gave me. She was so kind and gracious and beautiful  I choose the link number two because I always prefer to laugh. Love Christine and Bertie.
