APPROPRIATE SONGS FOR MY CHARACTERS
Lessons in Love by Level 42. A joint Derek/Eileen song though who teaches whom is debatable…
Private Investigations by Dire Straits. What Eileen used to do for the Queen, something Hanastrew’s increasingly doing.
Overload by the Sugababes. Eileen felt she suffered from this, it gave added impetus to her defection.
Ugly by the Sugababes. Theme for the Witch. Also used against Wes by Stan.
Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel. Jenny would like this when Eddie plays up, also when her mother starts spouting off again. It’s also Jenny’s preferred sound from the Fairy Kingdom!
Angels by Robbie Williams. The better fairies get promoted to these at the end of their time in the Kingdom.
True Blue by Madonna - sums up the Queen and Eileen. Jenny of course would be considered half blue!
Ray of Light by Madonna, the best she’s done. Eileen would once have considered herself one of these! These days the Queen would give the title to Hanastrew as she’s not defected nor would dream of it.
Let It Be by the Beatles. Jenny’s and Eileen’s plea to the Queen if they deigned to lower themselves to plea at all!
Can’t Buy Me Love by the Beatles. For the Queen though she’d change the last word to “loyalty”.
Push the Button by the Sugababes. This is exactly what the Queen tries to do with Eileen, and later with Jenny too. The Queen doesn’t always get the right button though - hence Eileen’s defection.
I Love to Hate You can’t remember the artist but it sounds like Erasure. This is one for the Witch. Also Brankaresh to Eileen and vice versa. Also apt for Roherum and the weatherman.
Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word by Elton John. Certainly the Queen struggles with it!
The Only Way is Up by Yazz. For Eileen’s, Jenny’s and Hanastrew’s trickier moments. Particularly apt for when Jenny begins to recover from PND.
It’s Not Unusual by Tom Jones. The entire Fairy Kingdom’s anthem!
