@skye613
I think perhaps we've been living under a rock, had never heard of this band or tune. But Clint Eastwood made a phrase very popular! And Technotronic made it half of this tune. Enjoy!




@cloonfourmegan
Last week Sonic won wiv Gorillaz and Dirty Harry. Now this be about Clint Eastwood and the great man has been known to sing a bit as well. So we choose him singing I Talk To The Trees from Paint Your Wagon.




@maggietkat
Well done Sonic with Dirty Harry. I have a double link today. I went Dirty and found a movie "Dirty Deeds". I remembered the jewel "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" by AC/DC.




@djladylexie
Dirty Harry is Harry Callahan a fictional San Francisco police detective played by Clint Eastwood. Dirty Harry is known for his tough approach and of course his gun, the Magnum 44. All the movies were based in San Francisco wot is in California. So I'm goin wiv one of the best known songs bout california ... California Dreamin.

Woo Hoo, The DJ Lexie did win with the beautiful " Time After Time". Gonna stay with Time times Two! " Love Me Two Times" say the Doors!




@cloonfourmegan
Well last week you did win wiv Cindy Lauder and Time After Time. When mum was a girl she used to have a Sindy doll (different spelling but bear with me) which was a British version of Barbie. So we give you that great song Barbie Girl by Aqua!





@terenceterrier

But pal Tucker ( bless his soul) taught me to seek out da bestest live vershun so Iz gonna go wiv David Bowie performing "Time" live from the Glass Spider Tour 1987. Or of corse yoo  could wotch n listen twice then yoo gets a triple linked linky cos yoo then have "Time" afta "Time" . *trying very hard ears*



@maggietkat
Well done Lexie with Cyndi Lauper has been an advocate for LGBTQ rights. She has also inspired many musicians. Identical twins Tegan and Sara are among those who have looked to Cyndi's musicianship and stance for LGBTQ . This is one of their relationship songs, Speak Slow.




@sonikebt
Well done Lexie with "Time after time" by Cyndi Lauper. The title of this song comes from  the 1979 science fiction movie of the same name. This inspired us to think of other songs named after movies and came up with "Dirty Harry" by Gorillaz. The video we have used is from the Demon Dayz Festival 2017 coz the humanz were there and technically feature singing in the chorus.....






An da winner as chosen by ............... me dad ...................... dus be  .............................. Sonic an Spike wiv Dirty Harry.

Ere wot me dad said: Hmm I choose Gorillaz but it was close with Bowie and Aqua close behind. *secretly loves Aqua* shhhh don't tell anyone.

Lexie's Chain: The Three Hundred and Thirty Ninth Chain

Hello pals. Welcome to week 339 of Lexie's Chain. Last week the winner was our very own El Tel wiv Bohemian Rhapsody from Queen . Let's see wot we gots this week:

@maggietkat
Well done Sir with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. It is such an intricate tune with layers of sound. One of the first bands to experiment with layers and many instruments was The Beach Boys. I think of Queen's number as searching for oneself and this Beach Boys song also describes Brian's feeling of alienation, "I wasn't made for these times".




@skye613
Congrats to Sir Terence. " Bohemian  Rhapsody " is considered progressive rock. Another of my fav groups is also considered progressive rock. My linky this week... "Bungle in the Jungle" Love Tull!




@cloonfourmegan
Well done Terence on winning last week with Queen and Bohemian Rhapsody. In that song they ask Can You Do the Fandango? Well no but I can do the mashed potato and I can do the twist just like in this song Do You Love Me now that I can dance from the great film Dirty Dancing.




djladylexie
Well done Tel. We loves Queen! Bohemian Rhapsody is one of our favrit songs. Scaramouch, Scaramouch, will you do the Fandango? The fandango is a lively dance from Spain. Annuva dance from Spain dus be the Pasa Dobley which features in the movie Strictly Ballroom which is a very funyn filum. A song that we loves from that filum does be Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper. So that's me linky!



An da winner as chosen by ............... Terence ...................... dus be blimey!! It's me! .............................. Me dad will make da decision!

Ere wot Tel said: After much consideration of da noms err linkies sent in by da chainers I haz decided to select *long pause * linky 4. Linky 3 n linky 4 followed da same rationale ( dat be a big werd for a terrier! ) but I on balance I prefers "Time After Time" by Cindi Lauper cos it be a purrty song even if da video had me completely confuzzled as to wot going on. 

So now is over to you. Email me: lex[dot]dogstovesky @ gmail.com or DM me on Monday 7th August 2017 (gets it to me by 10am UK time if poss). Oh sometimes I dus accidentally delete em! Heehee.
