APPROPRIATE SONGS FOR MY CHARACTERS
A View to a Kill by Duran Duran. Perfect one for Eileen when she executes Brankaresh.
Gold by Spandau Ballet. The Grand Hall in the Palace has more golden items than any other room. And as with other worlds the dwarves in the Kingdom love gold too. Some things do cross dimensions.
Moonlight Shadow by Mike Oldfield (can’t remember the girl singer’s name but she had a fab voice). The song title acts as a warning for Eileen, Hanastrew and the squad. The moonlight shadows in the Kingdom invariably are hiding something nasty!
Hurting Each Other by the Carpenters. What Eileen, the Queen and Jenny are doing to each other. Eileen is hurt by Jenny rejecting her.
Back In My Life Again by the Carpenters. What Eileen reluctantly concedes about the Queen and the last thing Eileen wanted!
Take on Me by Aha. For when Jenny issues her challenge to the Queen and Eileen.
Hunting High and Low by Aha (album track only to my knowledge). What the Queen sends Hanastrew and the squad out, given Eileen got fed up with it.
Don’t Leave Me This Way by Thelma Houston. What Eileen’s victims say just after she’s cursed them!
Cry Wolf by Aha. Brankaresh does this when pretending to be injured to lure Queen away from Palace.
Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? By Culture Club. For Eileen when Witch tortures her. Also for Jenny given the grief the Queen’s putting her through. Sadly in both cases the answer is yes.
Round, Round by Sugababes. What Jenny feels her life’s doing. Queen wants her in Kingdom, Jenny doesn’t want to go, Queen wants her in Kingdom and so on for ever.
In the Middle by Sugababes. Again for Jenny caught between the wishes of the Queen and Eileen.
Camouflage by Stan Ridgeway. A one-hit wonder I’m fond of about a ghost. Appropriate given fairy characteristics can be camouflaged by the human body. This comes as a relief to Jenny. No woman wants her “wings” showing!
I Say a Little Prayer by Arethra Franklin. Jenny does as a Christian. Many of the fairy squad do when out on missions. Eileen tries not to bother the Almighty since He is dreadfully busy. Jenny will inevitably be saying a lot more prayers as the full extent of the awkward situation her mother’s put her in becomes increasingly evident.
