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:

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

An da winner as chosen by ................. Megan ............... dus be .................. @sky613. Yay! Concats me pal .. dat mean you choosin next week!

Ere wot Megan said: I does be most impressed wiv the amount of research undertaken by da chainers this week and some very inventive linkys. We ummed and aahed a bit but finally we pick clever Linky 5 and we does love the chilled out song too.
