APPROPRIATE SONGS FOR MY CHARACTERS
Tears of a Clown by the wonderful Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. What Jenny can cry now her mother’s dropped her right in it.. What Eileen can cry too when the Queen gives her grief.
You Keep Me Hanging On by Diana Ross and the Supremes/Kim Wilde. Love both versions. Very much something Eileen would sing to the Queen.
War (What is it Good For) by Edwin Starr. Eileen’s attitude abruptly summed up when war threatens the Kingdom again thanks to the Chief Witch.
Chariots of Fire by Vangelis. What Eileen could do with to get her right away from it all…
Thriller by the late Michael Jackson (a great song and one of the best music videos ever). Eileen’s magical life has bee nothing but a thriller and Jenny worries t he same might be about to be said for hers. The only thrills Jenny wants are the ones Paul gives her in the bedroom! She’s not at all thrilled (that word again!) to have her mother not only dump her in it big time but as a result endanger her. The fact Eileen hasn’t meant to do that is an aside as far as Jenny’s concerned.
Dynamite by Dave Edmunds (album track on the magnificent Repeat When Necessary, the first record I bought, early demonstration of good taste and modesty on my part!). Not only is Eileen a force to be reckoned with on a par with dynamite, so increasingly is Jenny and the damage they can do when annoyed could make any landscape look as if it’s been treated with a decent amount of TNT, as can the barren parts of the Fairy Kingdom made that way by magical infighting.
Magical Mystery Tour by the Beatles. What Jenny goes on when in the Kingdom after her abduction by the Queen and breakout.
Hurting Each Other by the Carpenters. What Paul and Derek do to Jenny and Eileen after the ladies’ backgrounds are revealed. The men are not impressed with having magic in the family. All they see is the deceit as Eileen and Jenny had kept this very quiet.
The Reflex by Duran Duran. What Eileen and Jenny exercise every time they get their wands out at speed!
