I haven’t posted any song titles for ages, so I thought I would do so today. The next one is number 14, Magic by Pilot (a 70s pop hit) which I thought was appropriate because in this scene Rose is trying to formulate a Wiccan spell which will bring Richard back to her again.
Click here to watch the video – brings back memories!

Here is a link to my interview for the Ricardian Chronicle.
I write about Richard III, as you know, and I am also interested in my family history. Well, I found a link to Richard recently and wrote a blog about it on the Richard III site, Murrey and Blue: Here is the link
I am so concerned about the proposed performances of Shakespeare’s Richard III in Leicester Cathedral that I have made a video stating my reasons for opposing it.
Please watch and sign the petition – there are two versions one shorter than the other as I know your time is precious, but the longer one goes into more detail. Also, if you don’t mind and agree with my view please share this post, the videos and the petition to friends and family.
Here is the long version (just under five minutes): Long version
Here is the short version (just over two minutes): Short version
I have been appalled and sickened by the plan of Leicester Cathedral to allow two performances of Shakespeare’s Richard III ‘mere feet from his tomb’.
Not only is this a work which depicts the King as an evil, hunchbacked tyrant who murdered his way to the throne (and is the very thing which has most influenced the bad, and inaccurate, reputation he has), but the idea of performing it right where he was supposedly laid to rest is distasteful, inappropriate and crass.
Leicester, amid protests that they would not be worthy custodians of the last English king to die in battle, defending his country, protested that they would treat his remains ‘with dignity and honour’. How is this upholding that sacred and honoured responsibility?
I am not saying the play is bad; it is, of course, brilliant, but not in the place of rest of the subject of it.
So I have started a petition to protest about it. Please click on the picture of Richard’s tomb and sign and share it for me, if you believe this is wrong!

Rose experiments with Wicca, helped by her friend, Frances, who is a devotee. She finds she enjoys the relaxing meditation she experiences in a Wicca house in Canewdon, Essex, even though she knows Richard would not approve of ‘witchcraft’. That is why I chose the title ‘Witches’ Brew’ by Janie Jones (click link to see video) for this song. It is a sixties one hit wonder, which I loved when I was a child.
