Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and First Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 301  of #lexieschain. Last week the winner was Tel with T-Rex and Children of the Revolution.

The Children of the Revolution chosen by Terence had me in a real fix, then I thought of the composer Shostakovich a real child of the Russian revolution who composed The Gadfly Suite, the piece Romance is my choice the book and film Reilly Ace of Spies was a real spy who got involved and was murdered during the revolution.

last week Sir Terence won with a song by T-Rex….which of course is a dinosaur…so this week our link keeps the lizard theme going and we have picked “Money” by the Flying Lizards….(although I think someone a little more well known wrote the song…).

Last week's chain winner was T with T.Rex's Children of the Revolution. The 1990's indie band The Wannadies covered this song as Ann side for one of their singles so my pick this week is another of their songs, probably their most famous. You and Me Song.

Last week Terence won with Children of the Revolution by T Rex. Gloria Jones sang with T Rex but before that she sang Tainted Love which was very popular in Northern Soul clubs and then covered by Marc Almond in Soft Cell creating a great 80s synth pop hit. So here it is.

Well done Terence. Children of the revolution was the anthem of me college years. The Who were anthem bearers for secondary years.  Here is the grown up version of Kids are Alright.

Well done Tel winning with T. rex and "Children of the Revolution". Now this did get us thinking about other bands that are named after extinct species and found this great song by The Dodos - "Fools"

Well done Ter wiv children of the revolution. Marc Bolan tragtically died in a car accident. The driver was Gloria Jones, his girlfriend at the time. She met Bolan while performing in the musical Hair which is not about hair at all. So I choosin a song from the musical - Aquarius!

 An da winner wot was decided by Tel .............. was .....................................Maggie! Yay! Well done me pal. You dus choose next week.
