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:

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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!
