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:

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.

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.

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…!

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!

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.

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.
