APPROPRIATE SONGS FOR MY CHARACTERS
Sweet Child of Mine by Guns and Roses would be a great choice of song for Eileen or Jenny
Live and Let Die by Wings is another anthem for Eileen. Naturally she does the former, her enemies the latter!
Respect by Aretha Franklin - Jenny would like some! Knows how likely it is she’ll get her wish here!
Devil Woman by Sir Cliff sums up Brankaresh’s attitude towards Eileen and the Witch.
Creature from the Black Lagoon by Dave Edmunds for the Kingdom’s nastier creatures. I also think of this as a sci-fi song as it is sung from the creature’s point of view with no sympathy for its victims!
Goodbye Mr Good Guy again by Mr Edmunds - Brankaresh’s theme song if ever there was one.
I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass by Nick Lowe - Eileen’s choice again. Could also suit Hanastrew.
I Wanna Hold Your Hand by the Beatles - this is for Derek relating to Eileen, though he likes holding other bits of her too.
The Winner Takes It All by Abba - the Witch would like to sing this to the Queen but to date it’s a case of the other way round.
Life on Mars by David Bowie. Wonderful atmospheric song. Appropriate for the Queen. She would almost certainly prefer any life found here to that found on earth!
Tears of a Clown by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Eileen has had to hide a lot of what she is and Jenny is learning to, particularly from Paul. The Kingdom will make them cry these tears at some point. Right now it’s only succeeding in making them angry but the Queen’s dogmatism will have consequences.
I Get Around by the Beach Boys. Apt for Eileen and Hanastrew.
Hurt by Johnny Cash. Eileen would claim this but the Queen has a better one, given the way she came to the fairy throne. Eileen knows mother killed, is not clear over father whereas Queen does know both parents removed in dreadful fashion.
Rebel, Rebel by David Bowie. Sums Eileen up does it not?
Come on, Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners. The title’s also apt for the Queen to Eileen. The Queen wants Eileen to come to her senses. The Queen’s in for a long wait.
