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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 332 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Tel wiph Jefferson Airplane and Somebody To Love. Lets see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done Sir with Jefferson Airplane's Don't you need somebody to love. The song was on the ground breaking album Surrealistic Pillow. The other outstanding song from that album is White Rabbit with Alice (from Wonderland) in a leading role. SJ Tucker wrote a song about Alice and the Cheshire Cat, "We're all Mad Here". (One of my favorite quotes from the book). P.s. Mum has horrible memories of her ex trying to sing White Rabbit like Grace. *shudder*.




@diamondbertie
Well done Terence, your choice Jefferson Airplane, live at Woodstock 1969. Also at Woodstock was Joe Cocker among his many songs there was "I Shall Be Released", that is my choice.




@claptonterrier
last week our winner was a song by Jefferson Airplane…of course Jefferson is the name of an American President…Homas Jefferson….so this week we have been looking for songs about presidents…and we have selected this little ditty by They Might Be Giants…its called James K Polk….who was the 11th President of of the United States….a song they said was made to convert the most boring information they could think of.





@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sir Terence did win with Jefferson Airplane. A famous line from the film Airplane is 'Don't Call Me Shirley' and a famous Shirley is Miss Bassey. Here she is singing about History Repeating Itself.





@daisy_dor
Congrats to Sir Tel for winning last week with Jefferson Airplane and Somebody to Love. I has learnded that Jefferson Airplane did headline the Isle of Wight festival in 1968 and as we is just heading into festival season, my linky this week starts there. Annuver act wot also appeared at the 1968 festival was Smile wot was formed by Brian May in 1968 and also featured Roger Taylor. As we know, these peeps went on to form Queen with Freddie Mercury and John Deacon. Funnily enough, Queen also had a song called Somebody to Love. So there you have it, a twofer linky dis week.




@djladylexie
Jefferson Airplane what a funny name! One of their uvva hits was a song White Rabbit what is definitely about drugs I finks. Well that and Alison in Wonderland which me now firmly believes is some weir psychedelic book way ahead of its time. So in tribute to Caroll an well his very very interestin imagination I give you I Am The Walrus from The Beatles who may also have been influenced by the odd drug or two :).




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

Ere wot Terence said:   Fanks yoo for da interesting  linkies my pals. Wot great imaginayshuns yoo all haz. I only knew two of da songs dis time n strangely enuff I nearly used one of dem myself larst week. When I pick a winner I try to go wiv both track I like combined wiv a clever linky.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Thirty First Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 331 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiph Downtown from B52s. Lets see what we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done with "Downtown".  The lyrics say to listen to a bossa nova and soon you will be dancing. Here is a classic bossa nova by Sergio Mendez and Brazil 66, "Mas Que Nada".




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Skye won wiv B52s covering Downtown. We liked the B52 collaboration with R.E.M. Shiny Happy People. But we pick R.E.M. s great Everybody Hurts ... take comfort in your friends





@diamondbertie
I remember Petula Clarke's version at that time, the song referred to towns, bright lights and people.  Going on my time machine I found San Francisco by Scott McKenzie, I visited this magical city many times and this song takes me back




@sonikebt
Downtown by B52s was a great winning link from @syke613 . We have gone uptown this week with our link, also with a cover version. Our link is "Uptown funk" by ..... the Minions




@terenceterrier
Larst week da linky woz "Downtown " by the B 52s. Their name be taken from an aircraft wot be a big bomber. So I look for annuva group wiv a name connected to aviation n choose Jefferson Airplane. For my linky I choose "Someone To Love" and use da live vershun from Woodstock 1969.




@daisy_dor
Congrats to Skye wiv da win last week wiv da B52s version of Downtown. The B52s did also cover Paperback Writer by The Beatles for a car commercial, but to be honest we does prefer da original so we move back from covers to original this week...




@djladylexie
Down town or from Petula Clark. Lovely song that. My linky is Bananas. What!? Petula Clark featured on the compilaton album Nostalgia Goes Bananas. Petula Clark and Harry Belafonte sang a song together called On The Path Of Glory where, ridiculously, a visiting executive from Chrysler objected to their "interracial touching" whereupon they ensured all other takes of the song were destroyed to assure that the touch woud be included! Now that really is bananas! But me linky doesn't stop there coz I am sure you know of the great Harry Belafonte hit song Banana Boat Song. So there we go - Bananas!



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

Ere wot Skye said:  Great links all! In this time that we are living in, I believe that Love is the only thing that is going to save us. Links #3, 5 and 6 all had ma paws tapping. This week we all need somebody to love. Winner is #5. And with a nod to Tucker, it's live! 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 12th June 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 Thirtieth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 330 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Maggie wiph Smokey and Tears of a Clown. Lets see what we gots this week:

@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was Tears of a Clown…..we do not like to think of sad clowns….that is not what clowns are for…so this week we have selected a more upbeat song about a Clown…..it is Clown Strike by Elvis Costello…..




@skye613
Congrats to Maggie! So this tune got me thinking about other songs that have been covered in a different genre. Couldn't resist this one. The wonderful " Downtown " from Petula Clark in 1970's disco style by the great B-52's. Enjoy!




@terenceterrier
Wowser Maggie duss be on a roll ! Her winning linky be Smokey Robinson n "Bring In The Clowns" . There be lotsa famuss clowns. My favrit be Pierrot. So my linky be "Pierrot The Clown" by Placebo. I goin wiv a live vershun from M6 Private Concert in 2006.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Maggie won wiv Tears of a Clown. We are a bit scared of clowns and this made us fink of an even more scary scene in Reservoir Dogs wiv lyrics 'clowns to the left of me' so we chooses Stuck in the Middle With You by Stealers Wheel.




@diamondbertie
Well done @maggitkat, your winning choice by The English Beat  - Tears of the Clown immediately got me thinking of On With The Motley from Pagliacci but I knew it wouldn't win. Much head scratching later I've come up with You Are So Vain by Carly Simon.




@djladylexie
Clowns ... always making people laugh but sad inside. No matter wot them feels, they know, the show must go on. Leo Sayer, The Show Must Go On.




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

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

Hello pals. Welcome to week 329 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was Skye wiph Fine Young Cannibals an Suspicious Minds. Lets see what we gots this week:

@diamondbertie
Well done @skye613 with winning, your choice Fine Young Cannibals singing Suspicious Minds. That jogged my memory of Elvis Presley who sang that. My link is Elvis Presley (the King) and his film GI Blues where he sang Wooden Heart ❤. I humbly submit this offering.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week our winner was a song by the band Fine Young Cannibals…oh dear…I don’t think there could be anything fine about cannibalism…I have a preference for less challenging food…in fact I quite like just siting in front of the TV with my dinner on my lap…perhaps some nice lamb kibble…so this week my linky is TV Dinners by ZZ Top….yum….oh, and when we play ed the video there was a long musical advert at the start,…that is NOT our link.




@cloonfourmegan
Last week sky winned wiv Fine Young Cannibals and Suspicious Minds. FYG were a Birmingham band and so were UB40. They both covered songs which were also sung by Elvis so here is UB40 wiv Can't Help Falling in Love With You.




@terenceterrier
So how duss I find a linky from "Suspicious Minds" by Fine Young Cannibals? Well da vershun I noes best is da one by Elvis Presley. So I gonna use annuva song of his on da same theme "Suspicion".



@maggietkat
Well done with fine young canibal's cover of suspicious minds. Before the canibals was the beat. This is their cover of a motown song, Smokey robinson's tears of a clown.




@sonikebt
Well done @syke613 for winning with "Suspicious Minds" by Fine Young Cannibals. This week we don't have suspicious minds we have  Simple Minds so "Don't you forget about me".




@djladylexie
Suspicious Mind is a song about trust and intuition. Suspecting your partner of being unfaithful can ruin a relationship. Just ask Tammy Wynette. She knows all about  it coz she got a D I V O R C E! Sing it Tammy :).




An da winner as chosen by ............... Skye...................... dus be ..............................  Maggie wiv Tears of a Clown. Yay! You choosin next week me pal.

Ere wot Skye said: Super great tunes this week. And it was a toss up between #5 and # 7. In the end the beat  rolled on! #5 wins! Thanks Lexie and Mom. I sure appreciate playing!

@daisy_dor
Congrats to Maggie on da win last week, with Wilson Pickett's Land of a Thousand Dances. My link from dat song is Nutbush City Limits .... Wilson Pickett was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991, the same year as Ike and Tina Turner who sang dis fantastic song wot is not about bushes wiv nuts in, Tina also released a 90s version of the song in 1991 so double da bubble for you link dis week and takes your pick which version you prefer.






@cloonfourmegan
Last week clever Maggie won with Wilson Pickett and Land of a 1000 Dances. Now that was one of a number of covers of that song. Another cover was by the fantastically named Cannibal and the Headhunters. We not so keen on Cannibals so we pick I Eat Cannibals by Toto Coelo ... although if you eat a Cannibal don't that make you one too!

Wilson Pickett recorded " Land of 1000 Dances" in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in his first set of sessions. He had previously recorded in Memphis. Memphis is the home of the one & only Elvis! The tune was also recorded before Picket by Cannibal & The Headhunters. How you ask can these 3 different things linky together? Well, here ya go! The Fine Young Cannibals doing a remake of " Suspicious Minds."   Enjoy.




@diamondbertie
Here is my entry, that clever @maggietkat won with Wilson Pickett singing Land of 1000 Dances. I immediately thought Bruce Springsteen with Dancing in the Dark, so many songs with dancing as the theme I chose this one.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie...last week our winner was Land of a Thousand Dances....that seems like an awful lot of dances to me....I suspect I only have stamina for one dance with my little legs...so in that case please can you Save the Last Dance For Me?...BOL...The Drifters of course.

I have a song which also has 60's dances. Wow! 2 links! This version is sung by Wilson Pickett who is out of the Mussel Shores studios, "Land of a Thousand Dances".

@daisy_dor
Well done Megan on another win on da chain and I very much enjoyed all the linkys. This week Megan's link allows me to link yo my most favourite song "Mahna Mahna" also by the Muppets. Why? Cos it is a song to indicate it has gone 5pm on a Friday fanks to Mr Simon Mayo which means humum is coming home and da weekend starts. Plus it do make me laugh.




@maggietkat
wonderful link with the Dancing Bear. I have loved the Muppets for years and always looked forward to their musical numbers. Some of their best are covers of famous songs. My link this week is "Bohemian Rhapsody" whether by the Muppets or Queen. The Jim Henson studio did an incredible job recreating the Queen video, so please check Queen's out as well.




@diamondbertie
What else to do on a wet, windy Sunday than ponder on your chain. @cloonfourmegan chose and won with the Muppets and Simon and His Amazing Dancing Bear, this made me laugh and put me in such good humour I had to choose Bare Necessities from the film Jungle Book.




@claptonterrier
Hello Miss Lexie…last week Lady Megan won with a song from the muppet show. The Muppets have had very many famous musical guest stars over the years…we looked up the Billboard top 10 list of the best of those guests and the one I think liked the most was Elton John signing Muppet Crocodile Rock with the cast…




@terenceterrier
Larst week Megan give us "Simon Smith and His Amazing Dancing Bear" from The Muppet Show. Corse everyfur noes dat dis show be fronted by Kermit the Frog. So for my linky I looks for songs wiv frogs. Corse it has to be da hit by Paul McCartney and The Frog Chorus "We All Stand Together".



@sonikebt
Well done @CloonfourMegan for the win with "Simon smith and his amazing dancing bear. This week we are going with a dancing theme with our link "Wake me up before you go go" by Wham.




@djladylexie
Aww we loves Da Muppets! Well let me see .. my linky does be Big Bird from Sesame Street. What? How dat you asks! Well, Jim Henson created The Muppets who starred in the hit show The Muppets. Frank Oz was the puppeteer behind many of the muppets. The Muppets went on to star in Sesame Street, a children's TV show. One of the most famous stars of Sesame Street dus be Big Bird. Big Bird is a ... well ... err a big bird! Frank Oz was offered the part of Big Bird but declined as he didn't like performing full body characters. Frank Oz was also in Blues Brothers. Blues Brothers sang a song called Shake Your Tail Feather which is about shaking your behind to da music.  Some, bend over and let me see you shake your tail feather.





An da winner as chosen by ............... Megan...................... dus be .............................. piffle! Is me again. Me dad will dus the choosin fanx you.

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.

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 1st May

@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….

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.

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.

@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.

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. 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 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. 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 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!

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Seventeenth Chain

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.
