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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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….!

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"

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 :).
