Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Ninth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 309 and da first week of 2017! First of all congratulations to Terence who dus be Chain Champ of 2016! Yay! Right, down to business. Last week the winner was Bertie wiv The Lone Ranger. Let's see what we gots this week:

Last week our winner was the theme from the Lone Ranger….that programme used to run on Saturday mornings alongside other programmes like Champion the Wonder Horse….that made us think about Queen singing We are the Champions…and of course it is then a short leap to our link this week…George Michael singing Queen’s Somebody to LOve…

Well done with the theme from Lone Ranger. Ranger protect land, forests and as soldiers oppressed peoples. My pick of the week is a song about a special division of the US Army. Here is SSGT Barry Sadler's self penned and vocals  "Ballad of the Green Berets".

Last week's winner was the theme tune to the Lone Ranger tv show. Well there's only one song to link to that, Sugarhill Gang's Apache!

These always give me a head shake. Great win! So The Lone Ranger had a horse named Silver. Hi Ho Silver.... So da horse must get thirsty right? My linky " Silver Springs" Live for the Tucker Man! Happy New Year Pals!

Last week Bertie won with the Lone Ranger. In the film remake Johnny Depp plays Tonto. Johnny used to be with Vanessa Paradis who made this lovely French song about a pretty taxi.

Larst week Uncle Bertie winned wiv da feem toon from da Lone Ranger TV series. Annuva TV series from da same period wot woz also a favrit wiv my mum woz William Tell. She had her own crossbow doncha kno! Any ways I finds a supa vershun of da William Tell overture wot be performed by Mike Oldfield n lotsa clones. Dis be my linky.

Happy New Year pals. Going to start the year with a classy song following on from last week's winning song of "Hi ho Silver ...." For our first link of the year we give you "Hi Ho Hi Ho it's off to work we go" from Snow White.

Me linky is Bryan Ferry! What? Ok Long Ranger to Tonto, the Lone Ranger's side kick! Tonto was played by Jay Silverheels who was the son of a Mohawk Tribal Chief. The Mohawk is a hairstyle sported mainly by punk rockers. Patti Smith was a punk rocker in the 70's and had an album called Horses. Patti Smith accepted the nobel prize on behalf of Dylan in December 2016 where she sang his hit - Hard Rain. Bryan Ferry covered Hard Rain on his debut solo album These Foolish Things. So from da album I give you Hard Rain, Bryan Ferry.

An da winner as chosen by ................. Bertie  ............... dus be .................. @terenceterrier. Wow Tel off to a flyin start already! Dat is Tel wot dus choosin next week.

Ere wot Bertie said: Those were brilliant links, I could see where each choice came from. Sugarhill Gang's Apache made me smile,  the Ballard of the Green Berets brought a tear to her eye, her dad was in 2nd SAS in WWII,  she is so proud of him and all soldiers. 
However the talented Mike Oldfield with his version of William Tell Overture was brilliant I have to choose only one winner so I choose link number six. Happy new year everyone. Love Christine aka diamondbertie.
