Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Twenty Eighth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 328 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was me wiv Shake A Tail Feava. Lets see what we gots this week:

Congrats to Maggie on da win last week, with Wilson Pickett's Land of a Thousand Dances. My link from dat song is Nutbush City Limits .... Wilson Pickett was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991, the same year as Ike and Tina Turner who sang dis fantastic song wot is not about bushes wiv nuts in, Tina also released a 90s version of the song in 1991 so double da bubble for you link dis week and takes your pick which version you prefer.

Last week clever Maggie won with Wilson Pickett and Land of a 1000 Dances. Now that was one of a number of covers of that song. Another cover was by the fantastically named Cannibal and the Headhunters. We not so keen on Cannibals so we pick I Eat Cannibals by Toto Coelo ... although if you eat a Cannibal don't that make you one too!

Larst week clever  kitteh pal Maggie winned wiv "Land of a Thousand Dances" by Wilson Pickett. I try extra hard dis week n find a linky / artist wiv SIX fings wot link da songs n artists.
1 Both singers were born in da 40's
2 Both are from USA
3 Both are men
4 Both are now dead
5 Both songs were hits in da 60's
6 Both haz da numba 1000 in da title

Haz yoo guessed it yet ? Nope ? OK I tell yoo. It be "The Night Has a 1000 Eyes"  by Bobby Vee.

Wilson Pickett recorded " Land of 1000 Dances" in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in his first set of sessions. He had previously recorded in Memphis. Memphis is the home of the one & only Elvis! The tune was also recorded before Picket by Cannibal & The Headhunters. How you ask can these 3 different things linky together? Well, here ya go! The Fine Young Cannibals doing a remake of " Suspicious Minds."   Enjoy.

Here is my entry, that clever @maggietkat won with Wilson Pickett singing Land of 1000 Dances. I immediately thought Bruce Springsteen with Dancing in the Dark, so many songs with dancing as the theme I chose this one.

Hello Miss Lexie...last week our winner was Land of a Thousand Dances....that seems like an awful lot of dances to me....I suspect I only have stamina for one dance with my little in that case please can you Save the Last Dance For Me?...BOL...The Drifters of course.

Last week was Wilson Pickett wiph Land of a Thousand Dances. I fink I will go wiv numbers coz I like numbers. So me goin wiv simple linky using the word a fousand .. wiv a founsand bootiful fings from Annie Lennox.

Well done @MaggieTKat for the winning song last week - "Land of a thousand dances". We did a bit of word association this week and the first song we thought of was the punk classic - "Swords of a thousand men" by Tenpole Tudor.
