@maggietkat
Well done Sir T with Revolution. I have witnessed many revolutions in my life but one went unnoticed until Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber. His musical about PerĂ³n and his wife Eva brought to light the labor and economic policies in Argentina. My link is “A New Argentina”.




@skye613
The last Chainy of the year. And what a year it has been around our world. The Beatles tune " Revolution" was about the Vietnam War. The word Revolution was only sung 1 time.  That is a silent revolution. And the world is silent as some try to isolate and create friction. My linky this week " Sounds of Silence ". The original.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Terence win wiv the Beatles and Revolution. We fink it be good to have a nice revolution so we picks Tracy Chapman and Talking About A Revolution...Sounds like a whisper.




@claptonterrier

Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was Revolution by the Beatles. The Beatles actually recorded three songs with a similar name…the others are Revolution No. 1 and Revolution No. 9, both featured on the White Album. Of course the Beatles were very famous for having so many No. 1 records so this week our linky is their ninth chart-topper (see what we did there?)..which was Day Tripper….at least in the UK…




@djladylexie

Hello pals. Welcome to week 358 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiph Warmth of the Sun from Beach Boys. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done Skye with The Warmth of the Sun by The Beach Boys.  The song got lots of play time during the Vietnam War. Actually, it was written by Brian and Mike the day before and day of President Kennedy's assassination. The Kennedy presidency has been described as Camelot. My link this week is “Camelot” from the play/movie of the same name.



@terenceterrier
So larst week Skye win win da Beach Boys n "warmth of the sun". We could all do wiv dat at da mo cos it cold enuff to freeze da wotsits off here. So to keeps warm we need to follow the sun n find da sunpuddles again. My linky duss be "Follow The Sun" by Xavier Rudd.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Fifty Seventh Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 357 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was me Clapton wiv somefink really horrible which is best forgotten heehee. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@sonikebt

Congrats to Sir Clapton for winning with “You suffer” by Napalm Death. Napalm Death’s music is part of the Death Metal and Grindcore genre about which we know very little. With the help of our 17 year old we explored some other new to us music and have chosen a song from the IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) genre which is a little more soothing than “You suffer”. Our chosen artist is cited as an influence for Radiohead’s Kid A album. Our link this week is “Xtal” by Aphex Twin.




@maggietkat
Well done Clapton with the shortest song ever! I decided to look at the opposite of suffer and find a song that makes me smile. I found one that fills this thought but also has in the title “good”. Here is James Brown singing his classic, “I Got You (I Feel Good)” .




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sir Clapton won wiv Napalm Death and You Suffer. The second line of this great lyrical fest is Why so we chooses Annie Lennox singing Why.




@skye613
Well done Sir Clapton! So napalm sends me to Vietnam. And Vietnam will always bring to mind theRobin Williams film " Good Morning Vietnam. "My linky this week " The Warmth of the Sun" from the soundtrack. And the sun is warm like napalm! BOL




@terenceterrier
So after a long wait our favrit knitted dog Sir Clapton wins da chainy wiv da linky "You Suffer" by Napalm Death. *whispers*  I worries abowt him I rilly duss cos all dat jogglin abowt on bikes seems to have unhinged his brain. *sets up YouCaring fundraiser to get da little woolly chap into a retreat*. But back to da serious bizniss. Dat song (using da term loosely) woz da shortest track ever released. Fank dog ! At da other end of da scale da longest song ever to get to numba 1 in da UK charts woz "All Around The World " by Oasis. I give you da offishul video as my linky. It is memorable not just cos of all da Sgt Pepper like animayshuns but cos near da end Liam Gallaher iz standing next to his bruvver Noel n  aktually seen to SMILE !




@djladylexie
Cheerful little number that and a rather pleasant singing voice NOT heehee. Napalm Death are an extreme death metal band (which is code for a 'load of crap')more like wishing-you-were-deaf metal I reckon. Death metal is a sub-genre of metal.  I love to av a google on fings so I decided to find out what the polar opposite of death metal is and, well according to Spotify and its 'the opposite of every genre' blog it is Reggae Roots, also a sub-genre of reggae. That sounds far more pleasant what, what? So here we go, a nice lickle Roots Reggae number for ya which is one of the top roots reggae numbers of all time from Mr Robert Marley (ahem) himself Jamming by Bob and the Wailers. Reminds me of that joke

How does Bob Marley like his doughnuts?
Wi' jam in! ('We jammin')




An da winner as chosen by ....................... Clapton ................................ dus be ........................................................ Skye! Yay well done me pal you choosin next week!

Ere wot Clapton said: Hello Miss Lexie. Another good haul of seasonal selections in our Chainy Christmas e-mail this morning. We always enjoy the links and thinking that our pals have done. As we celebrated the 5th anniversary of old Marley passing OTRB this week we were very tempted to choose linky 6 but that seemed a bit self-indulgent for us to do so instead we are choosing linky 4. This is because we have been watching the new 10-part series about the Vietnam war recently (highly recommended via iPlayer) and the Beach Boys are always good for cheering up a cold and windy December day. Hurrah! Well done to all the players.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 11th December 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee. So good idea to type DO NOT DELETE in the title and dussnt forget to send a linky to da video from You Tube!

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Fifty Sixth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 356 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was me wiph U2 and the Miracle of Joey Ramone . Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Clever Lexie won with U2 Miracle of Joey Ramone, I admit to not knowing this song well but I listens to it, and my mind kept turning to a song by Bruce Springsteen called The River, I don’t know why but that is my linky for this week.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week you won wiv U2 and The Ballad of Joey Ramone. A Joey is also known as a kangaroo and so we choose the almost national anthem of Australia Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport!




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was a song dedicated to Joey Ramone….he was a member of the Ramones, a band famous for their very short songs….well I accuse them of being profligate and verbose and recommend for your attention the song “You suffer” by Napalm Death which clocks in at a lengthy 1.4 seconds….BOL...




@skye613
Hello pals! Ready for a good walk about today? So the winning tune was " The Miracle of Joey Ramone. " Joey's idol was Pete Townshend. Do you know the only song that Townshend played on that hit #1? And don't even look to The Who! Pete produced, arranged and played bass on this tune originally titled " Revolution." Our linky this week " Something In The Air".





@maggietkat
Well done Lexi with U2.s The Miracle (of Joey Ramone).   I just went straight for the Miracle. Here is Smokey Robinson and the Miracles doing Shop Around. 





@terenceterrier

Larst week Lexie winned wiv "The Miracle ( of Joey Ramone ) ". Dis woz writted as a tribute to da man cos he deaded - appawrently  he listened to a U2 song as he passed away. There were lotsa other tribute songs for him so I gonna pick da one by Blondie wot be "Hello Joe" n I gives yoo da video from Blondie: Live by Request.




An da winner as chosen by ............... me dad ...................... dus be  .............................. CT [finally heehee and no dad did not know who anyone was]! Well done me pal! You be choosing next week.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Fifty Fifth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 355 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Sonic an Spik wiph .  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@claptonterrier
Last week our winner was Jerusalem….a song in praise of the country we call our home …..and this got to reminding me of another song we have always loved….This Land is Your Land by Woody Guthrie….a song about the beauty and variety of America and how it belongs to its people….something that I think we can all take to remind ourselves of in these dark times….and we have chosen a version by Bruce Springsteen….Mr Bruce explains what the song means to him at the start of the video….”this land was made for you and me”… not the 1%.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sonic did win wiv Jerusalem. As Sonic said this was written by the visionary poet William Blake. He also wrote a poem. Tiger Tiger which mum had to learn by heart at school (why? Who knows it was the 1970s!). So we chooses The Eye of the Tiger by Survivor




@diamondbertie

Well done Sonic and Spike, your choice of Jerusalem took me back to a time when the world was young and we still had our innocence which give me Vaughan Williams’ piece Seventeen Come Sunday played by The Academy of St Martin in the Fields and conducted by Sir Neville Mariner. I always get a lump to my throat when I hear this.






@maggietkat
Well done Sonic! Blake’s poem addresses many things and one I thought about were “dark satanic mills”. The Industrial Revolution was built on the small man. There are many songs about THE Man getting rich. My choice is about Kentucky coal mines, “you’ll never leave Harlan alive” sung by Patti Loveless.




@terenceterrier
Clever pals Sonic n Spike won wiv "Jerusalem " sung at da Proms. Dis is also sung at da opening of da National Federation of Women's Institutes AGM n also at some branch meetings. Da Rylstone branch famussly produced a calendar wiv pics of dem posing nude doing traditional WI activities n wot raised money for leukaemia research. Dis woz da inspawrayshun for da film "Calendar Girls".   A film where 6 unemployed steel workers from Sheffield stripped off to raise munney to pay their debts woz " The Full Monty". So my linky dis week is from dat film n be "You can leave your hat on" sung by Tom Jones. Da video I use is da final scene from da film n if yoo be of a sensitive nature yoo may need to avert yor eyes.




@skye613
Tis the season! My choice this week " Oh Little Town of Bethlehem ". Sorry no nothing of the last prom.




@djladylexie
My linky is U2. Jerusalem first started live as a poem "and did those feet in ancient times by William Blake. William Blake was a poet (ooo there's a surprise). He became a member of the Royal Academy which was then housed in Old Somerset House, near the Strand. Old Somerset House is now called Somerset House, which is the new Somerset House wot is still the old Somerset House *confussled*. Anyhoo, Somerset is also a county in England. Within that county is a place called Glastonbury and this is where the aptly-named Glastonbury Festival takes place. One band to play at Glastonbury are U2. U2 first made their appearance at Glastonbury in 2011. U2 named their 2014 album Songs of Innocence after the Blake book of poems of the same name. I choose a song from that album - The Miracle of Joey Ramone.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Sonic and Spike saided ...................... dus be  .............................. is me again!. Well done me haha! Dad be choosing next week.

Ere wot Sonic and Spike said: Thanks for all the great links this week  pals, many of which we hadn’t heard before.  We have chosen Link 7 this week because it was a very interesting link back to Blake’s poetry. That and we do like a good U2 tune.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 27th November 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee. So good idea to type DO NOT DELETE in the title and dussnt forget to send a linky to da video from You Tube!

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Fifty Fourth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 354 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Terence wiph Ol Man River from Roderick Williams.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@skye613

Wow, whole lot a water going round these past few weeks. And we're going to stay the course." Ol Man River" probably would keep rolling down the river with Ike and Tina. Enjoy,




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Tel did win wiv Ol Man River which be from the musical Showboat. Showboat be  a collaboration between Oscar Hammerstein and Jerome Kerr (and PG Woodhouse) but usually we fink of Hammerstein’s musicals wiv Richard Rodgers and we chooses one of our faves from South Pacific.




@diamondbertie
Last week Terence Terrier won with Old Man River sung  by Roderick Williams,  Paul Robeson sang it in Showboat, my link is Paul Robeson singing Shenandoah.




@maggietkat
Well done Tel with “Ole man river” from Showboat. The Mississippi River rolls on and doesn’t care. The other thing that doesn’t care is time. I have chosen a song from another musical, the new Hamilton.  This is the ending number, “Who live, who dies, who tells your story”.





@soniekbt

Well done Sir T with your link O’l Man River performed at the Last Night of the Proms. We did go to the LNOTP a couple of years ago so for our link we have chosen our fav song from that (despite our Celtic heritage) - “Jerusalem” - William Blake & Sir Hubert Parry.




@djladylexie
Ol Man River is from a moosical wot is called Show Boat. A show boat dus be a boat wot is a floating theatre. Showboating has also come to mean someone who wants their behaviour to be seen at all costs where a person will do something flashy instead of achieving their goals. Boxers are well known for their showboating style before a fight. Most notable of these are Muhammad Ali. Ali called himself The Greatest (well deserved as it turned out). He floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee, the great Ali. So my link is a song about the greatest showboater of them all. Muhammad Ali from Faithless.






An da winner as chosen by ............... Tel ...................... dus be  ..............................Sonic and Spike. Well done me pals! You be choosing next week.

Ere wot the El Tel said: Fanks for da linkies my pals. Wot to do ? Afta much discussion wiv mum n for reasons best known only to ourselves I chooses linky 5 wot be " Jerusalem " sung by Da Great British Public * sings along waving terrier flag* . I duss have to give speshull credit to linky 6 though.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 13th November 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee. So good idea to type DO NOT DELETE in the title and dussnt forget to send a linky to da video from You Tube!

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Fifty Third Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 353 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Bertie wiv River Lady from Roger Whittaker.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@cloonfourmegan
Last week clever Bertie won wiv Roger Whittaker and River Lady. Roger Whittaker was born in Kenya. This is a good place for safaris which reminded us of a cartoon film The Wild Thornberrys The Movie which do be set in a safari and has this lovely tear jerking song by Paul Simon on its soundtrack.


@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was the song River Lady…the only lady who sings about rivers that we know about is Enya….so this week our link is “Orinoco Flow”….the orinoco is a river which goes through Columbia and Venezuela and is over 2,000 km long…

Well done Bertie! I am going with the river link. Here is Neil Diamond sing “Suzanne”.



@terenceterrier

Larst week Sir Bertie win da chainy wiv Roger Whittaker singing "River Lady" wot be abowt a boat on a river. I gonna stay wiv da boat n river theme n it be a short hop to get to my linky wot be "Ol' Man River" wot be a song from da musical "Showboat" . There be many vershun stop choose from cos it woz made into a film three times n da song been covered by lotsa well known peeps. Da vershun I gonna go wiv tho is Rodrick Williams singing it at da BBC Proms 2014.


@skye613
Bertie won last week with a great tune " River Lady". Sticking to the nautical theme for ma linky this week. " Ship to Shore " Chris de Burgh. Enjoy!


@djladylexie
Roger Whittaker is well known for his whistling abilities but did you also know that there is such a fing as a whistle register. The whistle register is the highest register of the human voice. This is because the timbre of the notes produced are similar to that of a whistle. One of the most famour whistle register artists was Minnie Riperton. So me goin wit Lovin You and Minni Riperton. Try singing that in the shower!



An da winner as chosen by ............... Bertie ...................... dus be  .............................. Terence. Well done me pal! You be choosing next week.

Ere wot the Bertie said: The links were all so good it was a hard job choosing. I kept playing and I narrowed it down to number 4, Old Man River by Roderick Williams and 2. Orinoco Flows by Enya. I wish we could have joint winners. If not then it has to be number 4 Ol Man River.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 13th November 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee. So good idea to type DO NOT DELETE in the title and dussnt forget to send a linky to da video from You Tube!

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Fifty Second Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 352 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was me wiph The Living Years from Mike an der Mechanics.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@terenceterrier
Gawd help us dis be hard ! Clever Lexie winned da chainy wiv "The Living Years" by Mike and the Mechanics. Dis luvvly song tells us dat we can't tell fambly fings once dey dead so should while dey alive. But dat not rilly true cos on Halloween ( wot be tomorrow) da veil between dis werld n da spirit werld be very thin n can be parted n dey come to visit us. Dey do say to set an extra place at da table so dey can join yoo . So for my linky I gives yoo "Beyond The Veil " by Lindsey Stirling.




@skye613
Congrats to Lexie and Hi Dad! The beautiful " The Living Years" was written by Mike Rutherford & B.A.Robertson about their fathers who they had both lost & had unresolved issues. The loss of a father, to a son, is heartbreaking. But the loss of a son to a father maybe even more so. My link this week " Tears In Heaven" Eric Clapton wrote it for a movie but has said that it is about losing his son, Conor. 


@claptonterrierHello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was a song by Mike & The Mechanics…I am not sure we ever really liked that band…so this week we are recommending a song about a superior type of car that would mean you would never need to hear from The Mechanics again…our linky this week is “Little Red Corvette” by Prince!




@diamondbertie
Not the best link but I still submit it because it has a similar snappy background beat, I found both so haunting, so here goes my choice is .....    drum roll .....Roger Whittaker s River Lady, I defy anyone listening to this song and not get a tear in there eye so indulge me and enjoy.




@maggietkat
Well done (cough) Lexie with Mike and the Mechanics doing Living Years. It reminded me of my friends and family coping with dementia.  I know this song has been on top100 lists and overplayed, but there is something about Elvis Costello's voice that describes the anguish for both the aging and the family.  Here is “Veronica”. 





@sonikebt
Lovely song last week from Lexie with “The Living Years” by Mike & the Mechanics. We are going to stay with the Dad theme this week & choose the song that our Grandpa used to sing as his party piece. So we give you “Ae Fond Kiss” sung by the lovely Karen Matheson.




An da winner as chosen by ............... me dad ...................... dus be  .............................. Bertie. Well done me pal! You be choosing next week.

Ere wot the Dad said: Flippin eck this week is very hard they are all fantastic. Let me see *thinks* flippin eck! Ok, if I can just pick your mum up off the floor from bleeden crying here we go. They are all really great links. I was a big fan of Elvis Costello, and that's a great tune. I like number 1 for the link to all hallows eve. I like 3, oh and I don't like Mike and the Mechanics either! Your Mum was going on about Karen Matheson as she loves Capercaillie and Karen. The EC link is a lovely song and very moving.

Sooo after much deliberation I must say that any song with ships in it is going to win for me. So I'm going with Roger Whittaker and River Lady. Might have that on the speakers when we next sail Atlantis! 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 6th November 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee. So good idea to type DO NOT DELETE in the title and dussnt forget to send a linky to da video from You Tube!

Last week our winner was a duet between a daughter and her father...so we googled some songs about fathers...and our first link took us to a list of songs to be played on Father's Day...and you will never guess what the song at the top of the list was....Pap Dont Preach by Madonna....!! BOL and DOUBLE BOL... Anyhoo, it has to be our linky this week for that reason alone...




@terenceterrier
Larst week pal Skye winned da chainy wiv "I have seen the rain" sung by Pink n her Dad. So duss I look for annuva daughter / father combination? Frank n Nancy ? NAH dunnit before. Father and son combination praps? Yup I 'm on to it . "Father and Son" was written n sung originally by Cat Stevens. Later he changed his name to Yusuf. For my linky I gonna use dis song but keeping wiv da duet link again n dis time  use a vershun with a younger sprog Ronan Keating singing with Yusuf.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Skye won wiv Pink and her dad singing When I see the rain. Pinks Dad James Moore wrote the song when he was serving in the Vietnam war. So we pick this song which was perhaps the most definitive Vietnam anti war song Barry McGuire Eve of Destruction.




@diamondbertie
Well done Skye, winning with I Have Seen The Rain. My choice is Billy Joel with Goodnight Saigon, why? the Vietnam connection turned my mind to this one.




@djladylexie

Hello pals. Welcome to week 350 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Tel wiph Let's Dance from David Bowie and Freddy Mercury.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done Terence with with winning Lets Dance with Tina Turner and David Bowie and lovely happy song, but I was a little sad too because it showed what an amazing talent David Bowie had. In the spirit of fun my choice is a real foot tapper. The intro to the TV series Happy Days, were we ever that innocent?




@skye613
So Sir Terence wins again! Woo Hoo! Going with duets today. Bowie & Tina Turner are both well known & famous. Only one member of this duet is famous but I couldn't resist. Not only is this the first time he's performed in public, he also wrote the song. Pink & her Dad. " I Have Seen The Rain"





@maggietkat
Well done T with let’s dance featuring David Bowie and Tina Turner. I love both artists but it is an unusual pairing. I remembered another odd pairing, Tony Bennett and Lady GaGa. Here they are doing “Cheek to Cheek” (dancing is the second link).






@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sir Terence won with Tina Turner and David Bowie and Let's Dance. In that song there is a line 'put on your red shoes' . So who else wore red shoes well Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz and here is Judy Garland singing Follow The Yellow Brick Road.





@djladylexie
Nice duet that one. There's blinkin loads of em! Tina wiv Bryan, Bryan wiv Barbra (Streisand), David with Freddie, Freddie wiv Montserrat. Hmmm wot to dus! Well for me is no brainer. Me goin wiv opera linky. What? Ang on but how? Well, Bowie's song was Changes was used in the Chicago rock opera Changes. Prolly one of the greatest rock singers ever was Freddie Mercury. Freddie sang wiv opera singer Montserrat wiv da fantastic Barcelona. There you goes. Opera be me linky see?





@claptonterrier (Tel didn't see this one I finks)
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was Sir Terence and the song “lets Dance”…that made us think about songs about dancing….and then thinking about the dance called the Mashed Potatoes…we never quite understood why it was called that….but we are delighted to find that the dance has its own song…so this week our linky is Dee Deee Sharp and The Mashed Potatoe Time*!





An da winner as chosen by ............... Tel ...................... dus be  .............................. Skye! Yay. You choosin next week me pal.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forth Ninth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 349 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Maggie wiph I'm Telling You Now from Freddie and the Dreamers.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done Maggie with I’m Telling You Now.I thought and thought I thought funny dancing I decided to go for Joyce Grenfell with Old Time Dancing (Stately as a Galleon) we need to smile in these sad times.



@terenceterrier
Last week Miss Maggie win wiv "I'm Telling You Now " in a video wiv Freddie and The Dreamers / Frankie Avalon doing a strange dance. So I looks for a linky on da dance theme n wiv 2 artists performing together and I give yoo Tina Turner and David Bowie performing "Let's Dance" live. Ps. Whilst doing my research I did find video of "The Chicken Dance" wiv Mr Bean, Mr Obama n Justin Bieber wot also fitted my criteria but since some of yoo may be of a sensitive disposition I fort it best to pass on it.



@cloonfourmegan
Last week clever Maggie won with Frankie Avalon singing I'm telling you now. Frankie A was in the movie of Grease famously singing Beauty School Dropout. But we pick our favourite song from the film oh yes it's Greased Lightning!




@skye613
Congrats to Maggie! Freddie & the Dreamers were part of the Merseybeat sound, although they hailed from Manchester. Many great bands & artists came/ come from Manchester including one of my early favs The Hollies. Link this week .... " Look Through Any Window." Staying with the oldies! Enjoy.




@sonikebt
Well done Maggie for the winning link “I’m telling you now” by Freddie and the Dreamers with Frankie Avalon. What Freddie was “telling you” was that he was in love. Eric Stewart from 10cc thought that if he kept saying I Love You to his wife over & over that it would mean nothing, even though he did love her. This was the idea behind 10cc’s hit, and our link this week, “I’m Not in Love”




@djladylexie
Well done Maggie! Freddie and the Dreamers. Freddie - Freddie Garrity - once worked as a milkman in Manchester. The most famous milkman song must be Ernie, he drove the fastest milk cart in the west you know!




An da winner as chosen by ............... Maggie ...................... dus be  .............................. El Tel! Yay. You choosin next week me pal.

Ere wot Maggie said: What wonderful links! After some deliberation, my choice is Tina Turner and David Bowie with Let's Dance. 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 16th October 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forty Eighth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 348 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Megan wiph Queen and Bohemian Rhapsody.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with the head banger version of Bohemian Rhapsody, laughed until I piddled.  How could any choice follow that? How about honoring Freddie Mercury? There is a short lived dance craze called The Freddie. Here is Freddie and the Dreamers with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello doing “I’m Telling You Now’.




@tclaptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was the song Bohemian Rhapsody…..and now as I have given up all hope of ever picking a winning link again I am choosing the song “Bohemian Like You” by the Dandy Warhols in the hope that some of the magic might rub off on my linky…..*desperate ears*



@terenceterrier
Larst week Dame Megan ( she's da floofy sister wivowt da big bum - allegedly) winned wiv " Bohemian Rhapsody " from da Wayne's World movie. For my linky dis week I gives yoo "Rule The World by Take That n da vershun I chooses is dem performing live at da London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony. How duss I link dem I hear yoo all ask. Well it's complicated. I takes a very long n torturous route where I shows I can get from one to da other n it would probs make Lexie's paws drop off from doing all da typing. So Take That explanayshun (geddit ! ) n believe me.




@skye613
Congrats to Megan winning with Wayne's World last week! So Mom did immediately think of Carpool Karaoke. Our linky this week is Sia and James Corden! Gotta stick with singing in da car!




@djladylexie
Is dis da real life? Is dis just fantasy? Well good questions me finks. Probably one of the worst covers ever of dis most amazin song has got to be William Shatner - even though it's quite good in some strange way. Anyhoo he has done loads of em, one of our faves does be Common People. Of course, the awesome Jarvis Cocker was the original singer of da song wiv his band Pulp. Well so that is me linky Common People from Pulp.




An da winner as chosen by ............... Megan ...................... dus be  .............................. Maggie! Yay. You choosin next week me pal.

Ere wot Megan said: It’s me Megan wiv da small bum! I put on my judging wig and do have carefully examined the very good entries this week. I was tempted to give the sympathy vote to Linky 2 but I just can’t resist ‘doing the Freddie’ so my choice is Linky 1

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 9th October 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forty Seventh Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 347 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Bertie wiph War of the Worlds Eve of Ware from Jeff Wayne.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@cloonfourmegan
Well done Bertie wining with Eve of War and Jeff Wayne
We been finking about Wayne's and we like this from Wayne's World! *bangs head in time*.




@terenceterrier
Last week clever Sir Bertie win wiv an instrumental track from War of the Worlds wot be a scary film abowt aliens invading earth. I gonna keep wiv da instrumental link n da alien link. E T be a film abowt aliens wot visit earth ( not scary ones) so I gonna have the film main soundtrack by John Williams as my linky.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was the Eve of Destruction by Jeff Wayne….that is a pessimistic sounding song…particularly in view of world events…so this week we are taking an optimistic view of the coming troubles with another Wayne…this time it is Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips…and their song “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt1”…





@skye613
Congrats to Bertie! Seems we are on a roll with links about War. " The  Eve of the War " was a song from the musical version of The War of the Worlds. On this album, Justin Hayward sang some vocals. Best known perhaps for his work with the Moody Blues, Justin asked on Question" why do we never get an answer to hate and death and war. My linky this week "Question" .




'@maggietkat

Well done Bertie with Eve of War. There seems to be a war in the U.S. between police, shooting victims and subsequent riots. Here is Prince with “Baltimore”.

https://youtu.be/cieZB0Ab7xk

@djladylexie
Well done Bertie. Ok dis be a long one but worf it me finks. So, our linky does be wartime sweetheart Vera Lynn. What the dog? Well let me tell you. First we have War of the Worlds. One star in that musical was Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy fame. Phil was married to Caroline Crowther, daughter of comedy star Leslie Crowther. Lesie Crowther had a radio show called The League of Ovaltineys. The show was on a pirate radio station called Radio Luxemboug. One star who, after being snubbed by the BBC for her 'out-dated music' who became a big hit with Radio Luxembourg was Vera Lynn. Vera Lynn was a war-time sweetheart and a wonderful singer who provided morale to the men and women who suffered during WWII. So there you go, Vera Lynn, war-time sweetheart singing We'll Meet Again. Boom!




@sonikebt
Well done Bertie for your winning link “Eve of the War” by Jeff Wayne. There has been a wee bit of war and destruction over the last couple of weeks. War is an expensive business but “Peace is Free” - Black Stone Cherry.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Bertie ...................... dus be  .............................. Megan! Yay. You choosin next week me pal.

Ere wot Bertie said: I've given a lot of thought to the list, all brilliant choices which made it so difficult to choose. In the end I kept going back to Waynes World and their hilarious version of Bohemian Rhapsody. Thank you whoever chose that for making me laugh, the state of the world as it is we need to laugh.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 2nd October 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.

Hello pals. Welcome to week 346 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Tel wiph Eve of Destruction by Barry MgGuigan.  Let's see wot we gots this week:

@cloonfourmegan
Last week Terence did win wiv Barry McGuire and Eve of Destruction. Well if you are going to have destruction you need a Demolition Man so I gives you Mr Sting and Da Police.




@diamondbertie
Terence won with Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire brilliant choice. I can't believe it 36 years since the release, track one "Eve of the War" is my choice. The War of the Worlds (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) by Jeff Wayne




@claptonterrier
last week Sir Terence won wit a song by Barry McGuire…now we have been struggling with this all week as we just kept hearing Barry McGuigan in our head….Barry McGuigan was a famous boxer from the 1980s…so this week our linky is The Boxer by Simon & Garfunkel…




@skye613
My linky is a tune that Mom has always associated with "Eve of Destruction" for some reason. They both resonate the same tone, both from the 60's and she was a bit of a wild child at that point. Pssst, don't tell!




@djladylexie
This is about destruction. Many people over the years haven been terrified of a nuclear explosion and destruction of da planet. I like this video from Kate Bush wot as an interestin approach on this concept.



@sonikebt
Well done Sir Tel for winning the link with "Eve of Destruction". Now Eve had a pal called Adam who was a bit of a "Prince Charming" - Adam & the Ants.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Tel ...................... dus be  ..............................  Bertie. Yay.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forty Fifth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 345 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner me wiph Games Without Frontiers by Peter Gabriel. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done winning with your choice Games Without Frontiers by Peter Gabriel, very topical in the troubled times we are living in.  My spontaneous thought went to the movie Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, this film caused such a stir at the time. My choice is The Glory Of Love from the said film.




@maggietkat
Well done Lexie with Games Without Frontiers. First thing I thought of for a link is go with Frontier. With the passing of Walter Becker, Steely Dan is on my mind. So here is a song from Donald Fagan's first solo album  (The Nightfly), New Frontier.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was Games Without Frontiers….this reminds us of the organisation Medecins Sans Frontiers …or Doctors Without Borders as it is known in English….doctors spend their whole day diagnosing patients …..and some of their patients can be…well…impatient….so this week our linky is Robert Palmer singing “Bad Case of Loving yOu” which has the lyrics…

… Doctor, doctor, give me the news
I've got a bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna cure my ill
I've got a bad case of lovin’ you,,,




@terenceterrier
Larst week sooper dooper DJ Miss Lexie winned da chainy wiv Peter Gabriel n "Games Without Frontiers " . Appawrently  da songy 's lyrics have been interpreted as a commentary on war and internashunal diplomacy being like children's games. Da video I wotched of it shows lotsa pix of nuclear or atomic bombs exploding n peeps praktisin survival drills. Very apt choice wiv current US / North Korea situation. So for my linky I gonna select one of my favrit songs on dis issue "Eve of Destruction " by Barry McGuire. *retires to concrete underground bunker for nap*




@skye613
So we has to linky to Lexies winning tune " Games Without Frontiers ". Great tune. Gonna stick with gaming! Have always loved this song. This version is great, live and with Melissa. Youtube done something strange so hope this comes through. " Foolish Games" What you say? No, Dis not a foolish game!





An da winner as chosen by ............... me dad  ...................... dus be  ..............................  Terence (again!). Yay.

Ere wot me dad said: Oh well very good links as always. I am torn between 3 and 4 both very good ... hmmmmm ok 4 pipped it.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Forty Fourth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 344 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiph Everyfink is Awesome from the Lego. Let's see wot we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done Skye with winning last week with your choice of Everything is Awesome from the Lego Movie, in keeping with youth my choice this week is Joyce Grenfell monologue Nursery School.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winning song was Everything is Awesome….but this week in music everything is decidedly not awesome as Walter Becker has died…the driving force behind Steely Dan…so this week our link is a tribute to the great man…..and we have selected Kid Charlemagne by Steely Dan.




@maggietkat
Well done Skye with Forever Autumn, the Lego jingle. I had to stay with the Lego theme. The self professed loudest band in England had a, um, hit. Here is Spinal Taps' "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You" as performed by Legos.




@cloonfourmegan
Skye did win with Everything is Awesome from the Lego film. Lego is as we all know plastic bricks. Kate Nash made an album called Made of Bricks and this is the most famous song from it Foundations.




@terenceterrier
Clever Pal Syke gives us da linky "Everything Is Awesome" from the Lego movie. Annuva werd for Awesome be Wonderful. So afta dat nifty bit of pawwerk I select "Wonderful Life" by Hurts as my linky .( high paw to da dancers in da video - I dussnt do wet ).




@sonikebt
Well done Skye for winning with "Everything is Awesome" which was sung by the identical twins Tegan & Sara Quin. Our link this week is from the best singing identical twins in the business - "I'm gonna be (500 miles)" by the Proclaimers.




@djladylexie
Skye winned wiph Everything is Awsome from the Lego. Lego began life in the workshop of a man called Christiansen in Denmark who started making wooden toys in 1932. Lego comes from the Danish phrase 'leg godt' which means play well. One fing wot I am very good at is playing well, as I am sure me uvva pals dus too. Some games are fun, others are quite scary and the people who play them dust not care what the end result will be. Peter Gabriel sang about it so me gives you - Games Without Frontiers.




An da winner as chosen by ............... Skye ...................... dus be  ..............................  oh flippin flop ....... is me again!.

Ere wot me Skye said: Great tunes! Have to go with linky #7. Love  the way you got there!
