APPROPRIATE SONGS FOR MY CHARACTERS
Always Look on the Bright Side of Life by Monty Python. The story line of Life of Brian doesn’t appeal but I love this song. Not only is it sound advice, I’d apply it to Derek, Stan and Wes before they have to worry about defending themselves and the Kingdom, and Roherum. The weatherman would take it as a typical choice for the idiot broadcaster - a simplistic idea for a very simple goblin!
Everything I Do I Do It For You by Bryan Adams. The Queen’s tune for the Kingdom.
All Cried Out by Alison Moyet. For Jenny when in the throes of PND.
You Win Again by The Bee Gees. The way Jenny and Eileen sometimes feel about the Queen, though to be fair the monarch feels this way about Eileen.
For Whom the Bell Tolls by The Bee Gees. A much under-rated song. Definitely one for Hanastrew when out on a dangerous mission. Used to belong to Eileen for the same reason.
Wouldn’t It Be Nice? By the Beach Boys. Wouldn’t it be nice for Eileen and Jenny to be allowed to live on earth in peace…
Hopelessly Devoted to You by Olivia Newton-John. One for Jenny to Eddie.
That’s the Way I Like It by KC and the Sunshine Band. The Queen and Eileen would both claim this as an anthem. The Queen has the better claim given she is more likely to achieve it. Eileen may be royal but she is still a subject.
Stand by Your Man by Tammy Wynette. One for Eileen and Jenny as they want to do this! This song makes me laugh. There are those who would claim it is sexist - they’re right. It’s anti-man. The words “he’s just a man” sum up my case I feel, m’lud.
Love’s Unkind by Donna Summer, I think. Definitely for Eileen and Jenny.
Messages by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. One for Roherum and FNN. They get the message from the Queen they ought to keep her happy.
Respectable by Mel and Kim. I was sorry to hear Mel died so young from cancer but they did some great dance tunes. This one’s for Eileen. She ought to be respectable but…
Mysterious Ways by U2. Sums up the Fairy Kingdom and its magical ways.
Pride (In the Name of Love) by U2. Eileen’s song given she’s easily one of the proudest magical beings the Kingdom’s produced. She would also welcome the song given its theme of fighting against injustice, something she prides herself on.
