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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 325 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Sonic wiv Auld Wives. Let see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with Auld Women. I am going with the opposite, young lads. My choice is from the movie "Mama Mia" based on the songs of ABBA. Here is the incomparable Christine Baransky in the scene "Does Your Mama Know?".




@diamondbertie
@sonikebt won with Bear's Den singing Auld Wives. This is a song of yearning and lost love ❤. This put me in mind of an old song from the late 1960s by Peter Sarstedt singing Where Do You Go To My Lovely it's a beautiful timeless piece.




@claptonterrier
last week Mr Sonic chose a song he  said was inspired by an odd rock formation…the oddest rock formation we have come across is The All Sports Band.  Sound engineer Tracy Coats (Frampton Comes Alive) came up with the genius/crackpot idea of a heterosexual, sports-based Village People. The result was the All-Sports Band, which featured a boxing drummer, a football and baseball player on guitar and bass, a race car driver keyboard player, and a karate kicking singer. What could go wrong? Here is their “song” I Am Your Superman….! Oh dear….



@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sonic won with a song by Bear Den. We love bears and this is our favourite song about a bear sung by our favourite muppets.




@skye613
I watched this vid many times. The one thing that I came away with besides a new found band with a great sound, was profound sadness. The kind of sadness that occurs when your loved one is losing their memory to a horrid disease. My linky this week " I Will Remember You".




@daisy_dor
Right after a couple of week away cos if a pesky pup, I'm back! The winner last week is not a song or band I know. So i put lateral finking caps on. Apparently the video for Auld Wives starred an actor Joseph Marcell. Now he played da butler in da programme Da Fresh Prince Of Bel Air. A programme wot starred Will Smith. So me link dis week is Men in Black by Will Smith, not cos of da song but cos it co-starred da fantabulous Tommy Lee Jones.




@terenceterrier
Larst week pals Sonic n Spike winned wiv Auld Wives by Bears Den. I woz upset by da offishul video cos it showed sumwun  wrecking a house , setting it on fire n then burning to deff. So I needs to redress da balance n find a happy cheerful song. Wot duss yoo find in a bears den ? Bears of corse ! N bears just wanna have fun when dey wake up from hibernayshun  n wants to celebrate dat da nasty hunters in Trump Land haven't shot dem while dey were asleep. So my linky gonna be Bing Crosby singing "The Teddy Bears Picnic".




@djladylexie
Auld Wives from Bears Den was the winner. I read that the song takes it's inspiration from a moving and personal ballad about the agony of watching a loved one suffering the sad and terrible Alzheimer's disease. One such artist is Glen Campbell and I honour him wiv one of me favourite tunes.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Sonic ...................... dus be .............................. Megan.

Ere wot Sonic  said: We have studied all the links very carefully and have chosen linky 4 coz we luvs a dancing bear.

@diamondbertieSkye Waulking song by Capercaillie was last week's winner my choice is keeping to tradition and folk songs. Bob Saget singing An Old English Folk Song.





@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week your winner carried on the Scottish theme with another song about Skye….it seems to me that the biggest  thing on the mind of our Scottish pals at the moment is their own independence …so this week our linky is a song about independence….Independence Day by Bruce Springsteen….



@terenceterrier
Larst week da svelte Lexie winned wiv "Sky Waulking song" by Capercaillie who be a Scottish folk band wot sing traditional Gaelic songs n fings. So for my linky to even fings up I looks for a traditional English folk ballad n chooses "Scarborough Fair" cos for sake of linkiness it has links to old Scottish ballad "The Elfin Knight". I gives yoo da Simon n Garfunkel long vershun wiv lyrics to enjoy.



@cloonfourmegan
Oooh I scratched my head to fink of Linky to your winning entry last week of Skye Waulking Song. In the end I chooses another Scottish song about wa(u)lking but not the beating tweed variety but the one you does wiv your legs.




@sonikebt
Congrats @Dogstoyevsky for winning the link with the "Skye Waulking Song" by Capercaillie sung by Karen Matheson, who lives in the same town as us.  We have chosen a song which was inspired by a local, unusual rock formation called Auld Wives Lift by a band which shares our town's name.

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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 323 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiv Tiger Mount Peasant Song from Fleet Foxes. REMEMBERS! CHANGE TO DEADLINE NOW MONDAY NOT SUNDAY COZ MUM USELESS. Let see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with Skye boat Song. Bertie described the song about the devastation of the Scots. I got to thinking about how 2 countries on the island of Great Britain could fight. I remembered the American Civil war. I have a negro spiritual about boats and war from that period, found by a music historian and recorded in the 1950's.  I chose Pete Seeger for this version and please sing along with "Michael Row the Boat Ashore".




@terenceterrier
Larst week Uncle Bertie winned n give us da Skye Boat Song by Kenneth McKellar. Dis be abowt da escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie to da Isle of Skye in a lickle sailing boat from da English forces. For my linky I going wiv annuva Scottish singer Rod Stewart n his song " Sailing" . I also keeping wiv da war theme n giving yoo da video of HMS Ark Royal.




@cloonfourmegan

Last week Bertie won with the very moving Skye Boat Song. We keep the theme of Celtic boat with The Irish Rover sung by the Pogues. Not as sad ... except where "the poor old dog was drowned"!




@sonikebt
Well done @diamondbertie for winning with "Skye Boat Song". We are sticking with the boat theme this week. Our choice is a song about living a simple, honest life with "Dignity" by Deacon Blue.




@djladylexie
Well done Bertie wiv Skye Boat Song wot relates to the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie who escaped to the Isle of Skye after defeat at Culloden. Considered a tragic hero of Scotland he has stood the test of time through history. I'm using Scottish heros as me feme this week and goin wiv one of me favourites Rob Roy. Rob Roy was made into a movie cunningly entitled Rob Roy. The soundtrack features Karen Matheson singer from the band Capercaillie. They also did a songa bout Skye Waulking (which is beating tweed).




@skye613
Why I love Lexieschain? Because I always learn something new! Did not know there was an island named after Me! And did you know that the common goldeneye is found on the Isle of Skye? My linky this week is Tina Turner & the theme from Goldeneye! Enjoy.




An da winner as chosen by ............... Bertie ...................... dus be ............................. oh ......... guess who! Yep ... me! Haha dad will be choosin.

Ere wot Bertie  said:  I've made my choice, a difficult one because all the links were lovely, I've settled for Skye Waulking Song by Capercaillie, I did not know it and I played it again and again. The song captures the culture of the islands, the haunting melody just caught the imagination of these islanders making the fabulous tweed they are famous for.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on MONDAY 17th April 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 Twenty Second Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 322 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiv Tiger Mount Peasant Song from Fleet Foxes. REMEMBERS! CHANGE TO DEADLINE NOW MONDAY NOT SUNDAY COZ MUM USELESS. Let see what we gots this week:

@claptonterrier
Last week our winner was by the band Bastille..so that immediately made us think about France...and as I am off to France and Belgium this weekend I thought I would see if there were any songs about Bastille Day...and of course there are...

So this week our linky is Bastile Day by Rush...not so much because we think it might win but more because we like the thought of our pals having to listen to some Rush....BOL!




@sky613
In 2011, Bastille self-released their second EP " Laura Palmer". In 1990, one of the top rated shows was Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks was a huge cult favorite, though it only lasted 2 seasons. It dealt with the question... Who Killed Laura Palmer. Our linky today is from the soundtrack of the show. All the music used on the show was original.




@maggietkat
Well done with Bastille's  . I thought about the Bastille and other great *cough* prisons. I seemed to recall this song going round "I dreamed a Dream". I looked it up and it was from some musical Les Misérables . So, that is my link.




@daisy_dor
Congrats to Sonic for winning da linky last week. Me dunno how some groups come up with their names, but the Bastille is a medieval fortress, armoury & political prison in Paris wot was famously stormed during the Frenchy revolution. Marie Antoinette was da last queen of da Frenchys and allegedly told peeps to eat cake if they not afford bread. Maybe not da best idea she ever had and she did laters have her head lopped off so mebbe dat proved the point. Still I can imagine her going to her death singing my choice of linky dis week ..... Edith Piaf - Non, je ne regrette rien.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sonic won with Good Grief and Bastille. That group made us think of France and all things revolutionary which takes us to  one of our favourite musicals and this stirring rendition from the film version.




@diamondbertie
Sonic chose Good Grief by Bastille, this is in a way a lament, my choice is another lament and if you listen to the words they are so sad, it's the Skye Boat Song sung by Kenneth McKellar. After the fall of the Jacobites at Colluden in 1745 Bonny Prince Charlie fled for his life. The revenge brought to the scots was unimaginable and terrible.




@terenceterrier
Larst week pals Sonic n Spike win da chainy wiv "Good Grief" by Bastille. Dat is summat wot peeps say when dey surprised. Annuva saying is "Goodness Gracious Me" .  There be a song of this name wot woz recorded by Peter Sellers n Sophia Loren to promote their film "The Millionairess" . More recently it woz covered by Rowan Atkinson n Pixie Lott so I gonna use dis video as my linky.




@djladylexie
Sonic did win wiv good grief by bastille. Hmmm well the Bastille was a fortress in Paris wot was erm ... well stormed by the people for the people wot was part of the revolution in France. The most notorious killing machine of the french revolution was the guillotine wot chops off your head especially if you was royal. One such person was Marine Antoinette. Lady Gaga duns a song about her so dat me linky wot is Lady Gaga and Marie Antoinette.




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

Ere wot Sonic said:  Thanks for all the great links this week - quite an eclectic mix. Our choice this week is link 6 - The Skye Boat Song. The reason we picked this one is because Flora MacDonald was born on the Isle of South Uist as was my lovely Dad.  Anything that reminds me of him and his beautiful homeland is always a good choice. As a fan of Twin Peaks we were very nearly swayed by link 2.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on MONDAY 10th April 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 Twenty First Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 321 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiv Tiger Mount Peasant Song from Fleet Foxes. CHANGE TO DEADLINE NOW MONDAY NOT SUNDAY COZ MUM USELESS. Let see what we gots this week:

@cloonfourmegan
Last week Skye won with Fleet Foxes and their Tiger Peasant song. Fleet Foxes also did a song about the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2008 as did these two some time earlier.




@diamondbertie
Last week Skye won with Tiger Mountain Peasant Song by Fleet Foxes. My choice this week is Island in The Sun by Harry Belafonte. The tenuous link is both songs hark back to a past that has joy and beauty.



@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was a song by the Fleet Foxes…fleet is another word for fast..although foxes are quite fast I do not think they are as fast as horses…so we googled to see if we could fond songs about a fast horse…but we did not find one…which is odd because your horse is not known for much except running fast…one might call them a one-trick animal…so this week our linky is “One Trick Pony” by Paul Simon.




@terenceterrier
We'd not come across Fleet Foxes before or their track "Tiger Mount Peasant Song" so needed to research. We learnt they were an Indie Folk music band and hailed from Seattle. We learnt that their name was chosen because it was " evocative of some weird English activity like fox hunting". The well known folk singer Judy Collins also comes from Seattle. She recorded " Fairwell to Tarwathe" which references another hunting activity - that of the whale. The YouTube version we chose as our linky is by Stan Frantz as the photography is beautiful ( and there is a lovely dog in it).




@daisy_dor
Congrats to Skye on da win last week with Fleet Foxes. This week I shall offers you Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. Why? Cos both bands hail from Seattle and have had the same record label. Plus it is an awesome song. So turn da volume up.



@sonikebt
Great link from @syke613 with "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" by Fleet Foxes. This song is a reflection on mortality & loss which Robin Pecknold wrote following the loss of his Grandpa. This reminded us of the song our niece listened to when she lost her Grandpa - "Good Grief" by Bastille.




@djladylexie
When I first read that I fort it was Mount Pleasant Song! haha. Mount Pleasant is the site of a massive post office sorting office in London. The post office is responsible for sendin letters and packages. When you send a letter to someone you need to make sure they live where you are sending the letter or it will get returned to sender. Hmmm I fink there might be a song about that! Heehee here is me linky Return to Sender from Elvis the Pelvis also know as Elvis Presley!




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

Ere wot me Skye said: As always, wonderful links. We all love music and what it does for our souls. The link we chose this week is another example of the power of music in our lives. #6 is the one we chose. And thanks Lexie and Mom!

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on MONDAY 3rd April 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 Twentieth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 320 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Megan wiv Touch Me from Sam Fox . Let see what we gots this week:

@sonikebt
Last week's winning song from @CloonfourMegan  was "Touch Me" by Sam Fox. During her music career Sam worked with Stock Aitken & Waterman as did the group we have chosen this week. This group features in The Guinness Book of Records as the all-female group with the most chart entries in the world. Our choice this week is one of first they did with SA&W - "Venus" by Bananarama.



@djladylexie
Hmmm let's see ... me linky is touching and boobies. Sam Fox started her career as a pin up girl and topless model and page 3 girl in The Sun and was one of the most photographed women of the 1980's.So me wondered who was the most photographed person in the world ever? Is not as easy a question as you'd fink. I did find out that the most selfied (pifflefiffle) apart from me is Kim Kardashian who takes over 1500 pics a day of herself!! Well, as we know, if we are down wiv da kids, Kim Kardashian  is married to rapper Kanye West. Ere be a song rap fing by im wot is called Touch The Sky wot has got Pamela Anderson in it wot has also got famuss boobies.



@skye613
Congrats Megan! Now there's an instant classic. Let's combine a few names today for our linky. From the presenter of this hit, Mick Fleetwood, we take Fleet. And from the artist, Fox. And to link it all together, foxes are rather tiger like in a smaller package.  The tune for your consideration.... " Tiger Mountain Peasant Song " by Fleet Foxes, enjoy!




@maggietkat
Well done with Sam Fox's Touch Me.  I have no idea how my mind jumped straight to my link, but this is Susan Sarandon in Rocky Horror Picture show singing Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me.




@terenceterrier
Larst week Megan winned wiv da linky "Touch Me" by Samantha Fox. Before she woz a singer she woz page 3 model . Pondering on dis I recalls da painting "The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies" wot features in da TV sitcom " Allo Allo". In dis da cafe in German occupied France be run by Rene n his wife Edith. Edith be da cabaret singer wot supposed to entertain da customers but she be appallingly bad at it.  So to save yoo from listening to her I finds annuva French singer called Edith wot be lots better. So my linky be "Non - Je Ne Regrette Rien" by Edith Piaf.




@diamondbertie
Well done Megan, Samantha Fox singing Touch me, what a lovely song about yearning, we've all been there, here's my link also about yearning, it's Shirley Bassey singing Kiss Me Honey Honey Kiss Me.



@daisy_dor
Congrats to Megan for chalking up annuver win on da chain with Sam Fox and Touch Me *shudders at the horror*. How on earth this song made it to number 3 in the charts in the week of 30 March 1986 baffles me. Mind you at number 1 that week was Cliff Richard and The Young Ones wiv Living Doll ... yet annuver monstrosity but at least it was for charidee. At number 2 that week was the fantabulous Sam Cooke wiv Wonderful World. So dat my linky dis week.




An da winner as chosen by ............... Megan  ...................... dus be ............................. Skye wiv Tiger Mount Peasant Song by Fleet Foxes.

Ere wot me Megan said: Oooh we lubs the linkys this week, all the booby references and so many songs that are mum's favs but we choose one we didn't know before and that is Linky No 3 and those Fleet Foxes.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 26th March 2017 (gets it to me by 2pm 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 Nineteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 319 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was me wiv Albatross from Fleetwood Mac. Let see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with Albatross by Fleetwood Mac. I know about another Bird, Charlie "Yardbird" Parker who left Kansas City bound for 52nd Street. A club, Birdland was named after Bird and was one of the hottest jazz clubs in New York. A song describing the vibrancy of that time was written by Joe Zawinul. This vocalize version of Birdland is by Manhattan Transfer.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week you Lexie won with Albatross by Fleetwood Mac. Mick Fleetwood famously and disastrously once presented the Brits with Sam Fox. So my pick is Sam's greatest hit (!).





@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was a song called Albatross….the Albatross has the biggest wing spread of all the birds…..pffft….i am never sure why people thing the biggest of something is the best of something…its very smallist if you ask me…so we are very happy to settle for some smaller birds…and so this week our linky is Three Little Birds by Bob Marley….




@diamondbertie
Well done winning with Fleetwood Mac's Albatross, a beautiful timeless piece, they also had a song called Tusk.  This had me thinking of the 1960s film Jungle Book. My choice is Colonel Hathi's March from the same film.




@terenceterrier
Larst week Lexie winned da chainy wiv da luvvly Fleetwood Mac instrumental linky  " Albatross ". Phew *slaps paws to head* so many ways I could go wiv dis. An albatross be a humungus seabird. One famussly be featured n bumped off in a very long pome " The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner " by Samuel Taylor Coleridge ( wot mum had to recite by heart at skool! ) I discovers a moosic track ( using da term loosely) of da same name by da head bangers Iron Maiden on their Powerslave album. Da full vershun runs over 13 mins on YooToob so abowt da same as da pome takes to recite ! I gives yoo a vershun wiv lyrics to follow in case yoo dussnt knows da original pome cos it keep close to da original story n as a senior fur I consider it my duty to edjamacayt da youngsters.




@daisy_dor
Congrats to Lexi wiv her win last week with da super Albatross. This week I gives you Welcome to Da Pleasuredome by Frankie Goes To Hollywood. And how does we get from Fleetwood Mac to here I hears you ask. Well da Albatross is in da Rime of Da Ancient Mariner by that geezer Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Him also wrote Kubla Khan and da poem was da inspiration for Welcome to Da Pleasuredome. So dat's it for me linky this week.




@sonikebt
Lexie's winning song last week, "Albatross" by Fleetwood Mac, was influenced by the poem "The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner" by Coleridge, which Peter Green read as a child. We have gone for a literary link this week with a song which references Maya Angelou with the line "All God's children need traveling shoes". Our link is "Twist in my sobriety" by Tania Tikaram.





An da winner as chosen by ............... me dad ...................... dus be ............................. Megan wiv Sam Fox an her 'hit' song (shudder)!

Ere wot me dad said: I will never forget the Mick Fleetwood and Sam Fox debacle (wish I could!) so I'm going with link 2 Sam Fox because it's so bad. Well done.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 19th March 2017 (gets it to me by 2pm 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 Eighteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 318 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Daisy wiv The Beautiful South and Don't Marry Her. Let see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with "don't marry her" by Beautiful South. That song was on the album Blue is the Colour. I got thinking about spurned love and colors and remembered an classic. This song has it going for it,  "Don't it make my brown eyes blue" by Crystal Gayle. There are gratuitous backside shots of her hair.




@cloonfourmegan
 Last week Daisy had her first win (yay) with the Beautiful South Don't Marry Her. As we probably all know Paul Heaton their lead singer was also lead singer with Hull pop combo The Housemartins. One of their biggest hits was a Caravan of Love but this was a cover so I give you the original by the Isley Brothers plus one.



@claptonterrier
last week Miss Daisy won with a song about the beautiful South….we like this song about a part of the beautiful south of the USA (see what we did there?)…it name checks a lot of places….and is song about going home to a place in Alabama… So this week, our link is “Alabama Pines” by Jason Isobell & The 400 Unit.




@skye613

Keeping the matrimonial theme going. What you say, when they say no.. Gonna Marry That Girl!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIh2xe4jnpk

@diamondbertie
@daisy_dor won with The Beautiful South singing Don't Marry Her, I did not know this song and the film was so touching, my choice this week is keeping to the theme of marriage with Peggy Seeger singing The Housewife's Alphabet.



@terenceterrier
Larst week young Daisy clocked up her furst chainy win with "Don't Marry Her" by Beautiful South. I went owt to da garden wiv my tennis ball hoping inspawrayshun would strike. But it clouded over n piddled down so rain stopped play. Then I remembas dat Cliff Richard sang when rain stopped da tennis play at Wimbledon wot be in da bootiful sowf of England. If da man in da linky didn't marry da girl then he be a batchelor. "Batchelor Boy" woz a hit for Sir Cliff n woz one of da songies he sung n famuss tennis peeps joined him as his backing group. My linky be a YouTube mix called "Cliff Richard at Wimbledon part 1" n yoo needs to go to da 12 minnit mark to find it.




@sonikebt

Congratulations @daisy_dor for your first winning link with "Don't Marry Her" by the Beautiful South. Paul Heaton was previously in the Housemartins with Norman Cook aka Fat Boy Slim. Our link this week is a Fat Boy song which was co-written by the funk legend Bootsy Collins and has some brilliant Christopher Walken dancing in the video by Spike Jonze .- "Weapon of Choice".




@djladylexie
The Beautiful South was set up by two band members from The Housemartins. House martins are achewlly birds don't you know. Birds don't tend to get married mainly because of them not being able to get little dresses and suits to fit heehee. Seriously though! They may not get married but lots of birds pair for life. Once such bird is the Albatross. No matter how far away they fly from each other, they always come back to the same partner, in the same place. As an omage to this great bird,I give you my chainy wot dus be. Albatross, Fleetwood Mac.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Daisy ...................... dus be ............................. oh piffle shadiffle ..................................... is me! Dad gonna be humpity!

Ere wot Daisy said: Wow, what great linkies. A couple of songs what I was not familiar with, so fankoo for expanding me horizons and giving me new peeps to add to me playlists.

It was a close run thing between linkies 4, 6, 7 & 8 and as I couldn't make up me minds I called upon independent arbitrators in the shape of me humans. Fat lot of good that was as they each picked a different link (which proves me point that humans are about as much use as a chocolate fireguard). So leaving the final choice between their two runners and riders down to me, the winner this week is ....... linky 8 because the idea of likkle suits and dresses for birds made me BOL.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on 12th March 2017 (gets it to me by 2pm 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 dus be inspired by da pawsome Radcliffe & Maconie Show wot you can has a listen to on dere website. Follow me @dogstoyevsky or #lexieschain on Twitter to join da fun. Remember anyfink goes! Rock, classical, opera, ballads, punk, reggae - is up to you! Fanx for playin!

Hello pals. Welcome to week 317 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Megan wiv Marry Me from Bruno Mars. Let's see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with "Marry Me". That song was recorded with the Doo-Wops and the Hooligans. I am picking a doo-wop love song (2 links!) "Why do fools fall in love" by Frankie Lyman and the Teenagers.



@claptonterrier
last week Miss Megan chose our winner…a song about getting wanting to get married…..so this week we wondered what might follow “popping the question”…well, I think the first thing that happens is taking vows in a church…so this week our linky is the song “I Do” by Jewel.




@skye613
So we gots a great vid and a great song! Bruno sings so pretty. Makes me want to dance & fall in love. Hey Mr DJ!



@daisy_dor
Congrats to Me-gan for the victory last week with Bruno Mars and Marry Me. Short n sweet this week for my linky so I keeps on da theme of marriage dis week with Don't Marry Her by the super wondrous Beautiful South. PS for those of a nervous disposition dis is the original version with da expletives innit.



@diamondbertie
@cloonfourmegan 's choice of Marry You by Bruno Mars was lovely and it's opened a huge choice of weddings and marriage. My choice is Radetzky March by Johann Strauss Sn, this stirring music was used at the wedding of Princess Anne to Captain Mark Phillips, also heard at the News Years Day Concert from Vienna.




@terenceterrier
Larst week Dame Megan winned da chainy wiv "Marry Me" by Bruno Mars. But wot if da marriage dussnt werk owt n it end in tears n divorce ?  Tammy Wynette had a hit in 1967 wiv D.I.V.O.R.C.E. but for my linky I gonna use da Billy Connolly vershun cos it be a gud laff.



@sonikebt
Well done @cloonfourmegan winning the link with "Marry You" by Bruno Mars. Let's hope the girl said yes coz we always luvs a "Wedding Party" by Paul Buchanan.




@djladylexie
Bruno Mars was born in Hawaii (who knew!).  He was raised in Waikiki neighbourhood of Honolulu. When you marry someone you have a wedding. What better place to have a wedding than Waikiki! Well ere be a song from an old movie called Waikiki Wedding from Bing Crosby called Sweet Leilani.



An da winner as chosen by .................  Megan dus be ........... Daisy wiv Don't Marry Her from Bootiful Sarf. Woop well done Daisy you broke your duck! You choosin next week.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Sixteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 316 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was El Tel wiv The Bike Song, Mark Ronson . Let's see what we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Last week @TerenceTerrier won with The Bike Song by Mark Ronson, this got me thinking of a hilarious animated film called Belleville Rendez-vous and song The Triplets of Belleville even if I don't win I want to share this YouTube clip it too funny to keep to myself.



@cloonfourmegan
Terence won last week with Mark Ronson's Bicycle Song. Mark Ronson's biggest hit was Uptown Funk with vocals by Bruno Mars. This is our favourite Bruno Mars song and we love the joyous video too



@skye613
" What a long strange trip it's been, "  Think I should have ridden my bike. Nothing was coming to this paw for a link this week. Decided to take a look at Mark Ronson. Sure there's " Uptown Funk " but what else. On March 17, 2014,  Mark gave a TED Talk, basically defining sampling. To simplify, sampling is taking a small piece of recorded music and using it. Mostly these pieces are used in a loop and in Hip Hop. But the most sampled recording artist of all time is James Brown! My linky this week " I Feel Good " Thanks, James!




@claptonterrier
Sir Terence chose a song by Mark Ronson as the winning linky…we see that he was born on 4 February 1975….so we used the clever internet to see what other things happened in music history on 4 February…and we saw that the Beatles recorded Across the Universe on 4 Feb 1968…and so this week our linky is a version of that song sung by Rufus Wainwright…(because all the Beatles videos on Youtube seem to be blocked!!)…pffft.




@maggietkat
Well done with "The Bike Song". I figure there are 2 things in the song, transportation and a city. I thought we would transport ourselves to New Orleans and take in some sights. To do this, Paul Simon is going to "Take me to the Mardi Gras". After all, Mardi Gras this week!




@daisy_dor
Congrats Terence on you victory last week wiv "The Bike Song" by Mark Ronson. Not a song dat I knew and it always good to broaden your horizons. My linky this week sticks to the bicycling theme .... and wiv a simple substitution of the word "pushbike" for "bike" we move from Mark Ronson to The Mixtures (not them Mungo Jerry lot wot covered it 20 years later). So der we go, I gives you The Pushbike Song by The Mixtures.




@sonikebt
Last week's winner was @terenceterrier with "The Bike Song" by Mark Ronson and The Business intl. Mark Ronson has an impressive list of collaborations however we are going with a song he produced in the same year as "The Bike Song" - 2010. Mark was a fan of this band and wanted to produce the album he thought they should have after the success of Rio. The song is "All you need is Now" by Duran Duran.




@djladylexie
The singer on The Bike Song features the rapper Spank Rock. Dat dus be a very strange name me finks. Using the power of google we decided to look up the worse rapper name sof all time. Well I certainly ain't gonna tell you the no 1 wurst name, cos is very rude! So we goin wiv da number 1 most famus rapper instead that dus be Snoop Dog, must be good as he's got dog in the name!). So here be a song from Snoop Dog (what was snoop doggy dog). Drop it like it's hot. Hope that's not rude!




An da winner as chosen by .................  Tel dus be ........... Megan wiph  Marry You, Bruno Mars . Well done me pal! You choosin next week.

Ere wot Tel said: Fanks my pals for da 8 linkies. Yoo all werked very hard dis week ! I went back n forth between dem finding it so hard to decide cos da linkies were very clever n I liked lots of da songs. Finally wiv a bit of help from da other furs here I choose linky numba 2 wot be Bruno Mars n "Marry You" We luvved da mob dance video n it be a cheerful bop along songy. 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on twitter (@dogstoyevsky) wiv your link suggestion followin on from dis one! You has until 26th February 2017 (gets it to me by 2pm 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 Fifteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 315 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Clapton wiv Rocket 88 by Ike Turner. Let's see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done Clapton with "Rocket 88". This was one of the first time the fuzz or distortion song was used. The story is that someone dropped a speaker on Highway 61. It worked but only by stuffing stuff to hold the woofer and with the buzz.  My link is Bob Dylan's tune Highway 61 revisited.



@skye613
So Sir Clapton won last week with a song about the 1951 Oldsmobile Rocket 88. There are about bizillion songs about cars, all types, shapes, and sizes. But what does each and every one of these cars need? Why A " Car Wash " of course. Here's an animated version from the movie Shark Tank! Enjoy pals!




@terenceterrier
Larst week little pal Clapton winned da chainy wiv da songy "Rocket 88" wot be a car. Da car be a mode of transport n annuva wot be favoured by Clapton n TT be da bicycle. So my linky be "The Bike Song" by Mark Ronson, The Business Intl.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Clapton won with Ike Turner and his rocket song. Well Ike was famously married to Tina. Tina Turner appeared in the Mad Max series in Beyond the Thunderdome. There are various songs by people called Max and we pick this one by Max Bygraves Gilly Gilly Ossenfetter Katzenellenbogen by the Sea!



@daisy_dor
Congrast to Mr Clapton last week, a tricky place to linky from but here goes. Rocket 88 was covered by Bill Hailey and the Saddlemen only a few months after the Brenston / Turner version. Bill Hailey is probably best known for da song Rock Around Da Clock was was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1982. Also inducted in da same year is my song choice - Crazy by Patsy Cline.




@diamondbertie
Last winner was Rocket88 by Ike Turner and Jackie Brenston, I noted the superlative piano playing, my choice this time is Winifred Atwell playing The Poor People of Paris she was an entertainer who exuded joy to her playing, it was the American Servicemen in WWII who introduced her to rag time.




@djladylexie
Well done me pal for da win! Well let me see. Ike Turner was of course married to Tina Turner in what turned out to be a very unpleasant and aboosive relationship. Once she managed to escape from him her solo career overtook anything he could have ever imagined! So this is me tribute to a very great singer. Her first single after Ike, from the same named album. What's love got to do wiv it!




An da winner as chosen by .................  Clapton dus be ........... Terence! Well done Tel me pal wiph The Bike Song from Mark Ronson.

Ere wot CT said:  Well Miss Lexie this is a most difficult choice this week. A very fine collection of links. So, we have narrowed it down to two....linky 3 because it is all about the bike and so very close to our heart...and linky 7 because ancient pawson TT went to see Miss Turner playing live on the tour of the album which that song came from....so we have put it to a vote here at BT HQ as we have our familiy musician at home for the night and so the winner this week is linky 3 The Bike Song!

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on twitter (@dogstoyevsky) wiv your link suggestion followin on from dis one! You has until 19th February 2017 (gets it to me by 2pm 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 Fourteenth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 314 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was me wiph Sting and Moon Over Bourbon Street. Let's see what we gots this week:

@daisy_dor
Concats to @maggietkat on winning last week. This week I is going for a simple linky ... Bob Seger did co-write a song with Don Henley, Glenn Frey & JD Souther wot was performed by Frey and Henley's band The Eagles. Dat song was Heartache Tonight and is brilliant ... so dat's it The Eagles, Heartache Tonight is my linky this week.




@terenceterrier
Larst week pal Maggie struck a blow for da kittehs n put a win on da board. Da winning linky wos Bob Seeger n "Old Time Rock and Roll" . Da video come from da film Risky Business. Annuva song used in dat film  be "In The Air Tonight " singed by Phil Collins. Dat gonna be my linky but I gonna use da vershun wiv da Cadbury Gorilla (extended mix so we gets da whole song) n because I likes to drum along on my own kit made wiv saucepans n wooden spoons.



@claptonterrier
Last week our winner was “Old Time Rock n Roll”…so what better link this week than to go allllll the way back to what is often cited as the first rock & roll record: “Rocket 88” by Ike Turner and Jackie Brenston…!




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Maggie won with Old Time Rock and Roll performed by Bob Segar. It was written by George Jackson who also wrote this performed by the Osmonds. *screams* love you Donny!




@sonikebt
Last week's winner was @maggiekat with "Old Time Rock and Roll" by Bob Seger. Bob did not take a songwriting credit for this song despite claiming to rewrite the lyrics. Songwriting credits is a bit of a murky world with lots of artists claiming credit for not very much input. However there are bands who choose to share songwriting credits equally. This includes Radiohead, Supergrass, Coldplay & Duran Duran. So this week we are going to celebrate the bands who believe in fairness with the 1994 Ivor Novello Award winning song "Ordinary World" by Duran Duran.




@djladylexie
Bob Seger's musical career kicked off wiv Bob Seger & The Last Heard. He quickly changed the band name to Bob Seger System who released a single and album of the same name in 1969 - Ramblin Gamblin Man.  Is amazin how many songs have ramblin in te title! One of our favourites dust be Ramblin Man by Lemon Jelly. So dat is our linky.



An da winner as chosen by ................. Maggie dus be ........... Clapton wiv Rockett 88 by Ike Turner. Yay well done CT. You dus be choosin next week.

Ere wot Maggie said: My choice for the winning song "Rocket 88". All wonderful links this week so it was hard to choose. Rocket 88 struck home 2x. Mom's grandpa drove an Oldsmobile Delta 88 (not the muscle car but the make and model # close). Next you all know Mom lived in Chicago and we live in St. Louis. Ike grew up in East St. Louis and We all love the Chess catalog. 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on twitter (@dogstoyevsky) wiv your link suggestion followin on from dis one! You has until 13th February 2017 (gets it to me by 2pm 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 Thirteen Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 313 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was me wiph Sting and Moon Over Bourbon Street. Let's see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done Lexie! When I think of Interview of a Vampire, I try not to remember the absolutely horribly played Lestat by Tom Cruise. There is an adorable Tom in a very early film Risky Business. This is Tom dancing to Bob Seeger's Old Time Rock and Roll.




@terenceterrier
Larst week our favrit DJ Lexie winned wiv "Moon Over Bourbon Street" by Sting. Sting started off in a group called Police. One of their hits woz " Message In A Bottle". Wot sorta message duss yoo fink mite be innit? Well if it wos frown in da sea by a fur marooned on a desert island probs it would say "Rescue Me" . So for my linky dis week I gives yoo Madonna n "Rescue Me".




@claptonterrier
ast week your song was “moon Over Bourbon Street”…and of course Bourbon is a drink…and to be classed as bourbon that drink has to be made in Kentucky….so this week our link Is “Blue Moon of Kentucky”…sung here by Patsy Cline…




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Lexie won with Moon Over Bourbon Street by Sting. Sting was originally in The Police. We like jolly policemen so we pick this laughing one.




@skye613
So hmmm Lexie's Dad be choosing. Well, Bourbon Street is in New Orleans as we all know. In August of 2005, New Orleans was devastated by hurricane Katrina. To this day the recovery is not complete. In Oct-Nov 2005, many musicians contributed to an album to benefit The American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and MusiCares to aid the citizens of New Orleans & the Gulf Coast.  As Elton sings " I'm Still Standing " which is included in  the album- New Orleans is still standing! Laissez les bon temps roulez !




@daisy_dor
Congrats Lexie on da winnings last week. Me link this week be a tad tenuous but me not care cos it get me to me favourites. As well as being a solo artist, Sting was a member of The Police so he was a Policeman (well sort of). In da song Suburbia by Pet Shop Boys der are da lyrics "where's a policeman when you need one ...". So der we has it, my link dis week is Suburbia by Pet Shop Boys.




@sonikebt
Well done @djladylexie winning with "Moon over Bourdon St" by Sting. This week we have picked a song about the moon which was also in a movie. We mainly chose it because it reminded us of our boy practising for his Grade 2 violin exam. We would like to say they were happy memories but put us off violins for life !!! Our link is "Moon River" sung by Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany's.



An da winner as chosen by ................. me dad dus be ........... Maggie! Yay well done me pal.

Ere wot me dad said: Nice links. Got to agree with number 1 Tom Cruise was AWFUL in that movie. So I'm going with No 1. Well done everyone. Love .... the Dad.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on twitter (@dogstoyevsky) wiv your link suggestion followin on from dis one! You has until 6th February 2017 (gets it to me by 2pm UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Twelfth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 312 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiv Zombies an She's Not There. Let's see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with The Zombies' "she's not there". Rob Sargent is the song writing dynamo for the band. After he left the Zombies, he tried a number of things but ended up with his solo ventures. Rob's debut album featured several well known artists including Alphonso Jones from the early days of Weather Report which was a fusion jazz group. When I think of Jones' contributions, one song comes to mind "Black Market" which is on the album of the same name. This vid was recorded with those lovely pops from vinyl.




@terenceterrier
Soooo da linky to follow is "She's Not There" by The Zombies. I'm a simple fur so I goes for a simple linky . A linky wiv lotsa zombies dancing in da video. "Thriller" / Michael Jackson. That's it. Move along.  Nuffin more to see here.



@cloonfourmegan
Last week Skye won wiv the Zombies and She's Not There. The members of the Zombies came from St Albans. One of mum's schoolgirl crushes apparently now lives in St Albans. We give you Mr David Essex and Hold Me Close.



@daisy_dor
Concats to Skye on da victory wiv a super linky to a cool song ... I has decided to go for a simple linky dis week. The song She's Not There has been covered by many peeps, including Nick Cave (as a duet with Neko Case). Nick Cave is also the artist (along wiv da Bad Seeds) on one of my fav songs from da fantabulous tv programme called Peaky Blinders and dat do be Red Right Hand. So der we has it ... my linky dis week is Nick Cave and da Bad Seeds with Red Right Hand.



@claptonterrier
Last week was our winner was a song by The Zombies!….*shudder*…that made us think about halloweens and all things scary….so this week we are choosing as our link the band Vampire Weekend….and their song Oxford Comma….!





@sonikebt
Great link from @skye613 last week with "She's not there" by the Zombies.  Our link this week is the protest song about "The Troubles" in NI by The Cranberries,  "Zombie"




@djladylexie
Zombies is also known as the undead. They was once deaded and then they comes back to life again when they has been deaded. Very confusslin that is! Well anyhoo, annuva very famous undeaded does be Dracula wot is also undeaded but he is a vampire instead of a zombie wot drinks blood instead of eatin people. Dracula was written by Bram Stoker an was made into a movie. Annuva famous vampire writer is Anne Rice who wrote The Vampire Lestat. That book was made into a movie too and I choosin a song from dat movie wot be Moon Over Bourbon Street by Sting.




An da winner as chosen by ................. Skye dus be ........... ut oh ................... is me! Boo! Bet prepare me dad for incomin :).

Ere wot Skye said: Wow, the picking gets harder every time. What great links. Very difficult to choose. Was torn between #5 and #7 oh and #2. But in the end the undeaded win #7. Thanks pals!

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Eleventh Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 311 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Megan wiv somfink. Let's see what we gots this week:

@daisy_dor
Congrats to Megan der victory last week. Dis one is a tad tricky cos me nots knows da music of Da Lost Shadowy Puppetyfings, so i did has to put my finkings caps on ... Dem is on a Domino music label (well so wikidodats says), also on dat label is Franz Ferdinand and me has been known to gets me grove on to Take Me Out. So der it is, my linky dis week is Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand.




@terenceterrier
Larst week Lady Megan pinned her name on da scoresheet wiv "Miracle Aligner" by The Last Shadow Puppets. I noes nuffin abowt dem so I rummages in Wikipedia n reads dat dey played at Glastonbury larst year n performed "Moonage Daydream" in memory of David Bowie. Since it be a year ago dis week dat Bowie died I woz gonna go wiv da original as my linky. Nah! I gonna take dis a step further. For my linky I gonna give yoo David Bowie doing a cover in memory of sumwun wot died. So I gives yoo as my linky da live vershun of David Bowie singing "Imagine" as a tribute to John Lennon.



@claptonterrier
Last week we had a song by The Last Shadow Puppets...in looking at their Wikipedia page we noticed an odd footnote which just said "Dutch singles positions"...so this week our linky is to the song which is currently number 1 in the Dutch singles chart....Clean Bandit by Rockabye!




@maggietkat
Well done! Radiohead was indeed a progressive band. My band also broke in as a progressive band, Talking Heads. The song link was Burn the Witch and my song is "Burning Down the House". So, some Head band is burning something!




@skye613
Congrats Megan, love this tune. Never heard it before so began investigating. The genre is Baroque Pop. The infusion of " classical music, orchestral pop, rock and Baroque music." It emerged in the 60's  blending harmonies and instruments not heard previously in rock/pop. My linky this week is said to have started the British Baroque Pop movement.




@sonikebt
Well done @cloonfourmegan for last week's winning link, The Last Shadow Puppets and "Miracle Enabler". We are staying with the theme of miracles and a fav band from the typists youth - "Promised you a Miracle" by Simple Minds.



@djladylexie
Hmm shadow puppets are fun as are finger puppets. Mum is so old she used to watch Fingerbobs. Fingerbobs was a TV programme wot was in the 1970's. There was a mouse puppet called Fingermouse. Finberbob was mentioned in the video of by Lost Prophet's A Town Called Hypocrisy. So me goin wiv dat as me linky.
