APPROPRIATE SONGS FOR MY CHARACTERS
Break My Stride by Matthew Wilder. Heaven help anyone trying that on Eileen, Jenny or Hanastrew. The Queen would like this anthem too. The snag being her stride was broken when she was overthrown and every act of defiance by Jenny or Eileen continues to break it. Will the Queen end up being pushed to use the specialized magic that is the monarch’s alone? The magic that hasn’t been used for centuries?
Wild Boys by Duran Duran. One for Stan and Wes in their early years. It could be applied to Danrock and Elderin too.
I’m Still Standing by Elton John. The Queen’s anthem after her overthrow. A theme for Eileen too.
Kiss Me by Stephen Tin Tin Duffy. One for Derek and Eileen.
Breakout by Swing Out Sister. One for the fairy squad given they (a) prevent these or (b) clear up said breakouts whenever they occur.
You Keep It All In by The Beautiful South. Jenny’s theme for when she bottles things up during her PND.
Mama Used to Say by Junior. One for Jenny - there are many things she wishes her mother never said!
Holding Back the Years by Simply Red. Used to brilliant effect in Only Fools and Horses, I’d use this partly for Eileen as one blessing of being a fairy is she doesn’t age that much, she must fake aging a bit on earth or it’d look pointed but also for the Queen. She wants to hold back the years where Eileen defected!
The Boys are Back in Town by Thin Lizzy. Definitely one for Wes and Stan.
Lying Eyes by the Eagles for the Witch.
No Regrets by Robbie Williams. One for Eileen. She’s of the “regrets are for wimps” school of thought. Having said that, she does have some like putting Derek at risk of being magically hurt by the Queen in an attempt to get Eileen back for good but her regret there is at the monarch’s behaviour, not her own.
Ride a White Swan by T-Rex. It’s the kind of thing the Queen’s ancestors did. She herself does not indulge, preferring a pure unicorn every time.
Planet Earth by Duran Duran. One for Jenny and Eileen, given they love the place.
Embarrassment by Madness. What Eileen is to the Queen though Eileen considers the monarch’s behaviour equally embarrassing, not that the ruler will accept that.
