APPROPRIATE SONGS FOR MY CHARACTERS
You Sexy Thing by Hot Chocolate. For Jenny, from Paul, barring for a while after Eddie’s birth when she felt far from sexy!
We are the Champions by Queen. Fairy squad morale boosting tune.
I’m Not Scared by Altered Images. Eileen’s tune to remind herself not to be scared despite often feeling so. In her case the title should be I’m Not Scared In Front of Anyone Else - Ever - One Has Standards.
Would I Lie to You? By the Eurythmics. From Eileen to the Queen. The response? “Yes if it suited you”.
No Woman, No Cry by Bob Marley and the Wailers. One for Brankaresh. His problems are due to women in his eyes. His greed, lust for power, selfishness cannot have anything to do with his fall from grace according to him. I admit when I hear this song I laugh given the late Mr Marley had 22 children by 11 women. He overcame the difficulty highlighted by the title then!
Careless Whisper by George Michael. What Eileen, Hanastrew and squad live in dread of, as it is their lives at stake.
We Don’t Need Another Hero by Tina Turner. Eileen’s tune. What she’d argue you do need is a well equipped heroine with a decent wand and spell range!
She Loves You by the Beatles. Someone, probably Hanastrew, could use this to tell L’Evallier how Melanbury really feels.
Paperback Writer by the Beatles. What I want to be, though I’d like hardback and audio editions too!
And then I Kissed Her by the Beach Boys. A Derek tune.
Cherish by Kool and the Gang. I’m not one for soppy love songs as a rule but I do like the words in this. One for Jenny and Eileen. They need to cherish the lives they lead on earth, for as long as they can.
Ain’t No Stopping Us Now by Macfadden and Whitehead. One for Eileen, Jenny, Hanastrew and squad.
Too Much Too Soon by the Specials. One for the Queen in relation to Eileen’s wish to defect and marry a human. It doesn’t matter that at that point Eileen is hundreds of years old in fairy terms, the Queen would still consider Eileen far too young to go into a relationship of that kind. Eileen could live for ever and still be considered too young!
Land of Confusion by Genesis. What the Kingdom is, particularly during the overthrow.
