Rose’s Playlist (13) – Witches’ Brew by Janie Jones

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.

Rose’s Playlist (12) – Too Bad by Nickelback

Rose has a psychic reading from each of the other members of her friend, Lynne’s, circle. She can understand some of what is said, but not all of it. She leaves not much the wiser, but a conversation at the end gives her a new idea…

I chose the song ‘Too Bad’ by Nickelback (click the link to watch video) for this scene, because Richard would have considered this witchcraft and thence a sin, but also because it was too bad that Rose didn’t really get much out of the session.

Rose’s Playlist (10) – I’m Still Waiting by Diana Ross

It’s a year since Richard informed Rose he wouldn’t be coming back to the Major Oak, where they have agreed to meet once a year. Despite this, Rose returns there, hoping against hope that he has changed his mind, but to no avail. Depressed, she is at a loss as to what to do, but Laura makes a suggestion which leads to Rose formulating a plan…

I have used ‘I’m Still Waiting‘ by Diana Ross to illustrate this scene. Click to see the video.

Rose’s Playlist (7) – When You Are A King by White Plains

As Rose explores the various Ricardian sites, such as the Tower of London, she finds out that Richard’s legacy has led to many more places of historical and ecclesiastical interest surviving and she realises that he was truly the great thing she and her fellow Ricardians thought he would be.

When You Are A King‘ by White Plains is the scene title song. Click on the link for a video filmed at the Tower- synchronicity at work!

Rose’s Playlist (6) – How You Remind Me by Nickelback

Rose continues to visit places associated with Richard,finding them changed, mainly for the better. They make her feel closer to him, but also serve as poignant reminders of his absence.So I chose ‘How You Remind Me‘ a great song by Nickelback as this scene’s title. Click on the link for a video of the song and you can download the Richard Liveth Yet books,or purchase a print copy: here.

I thought you might like a sneak preview of it – I did promise you Richard III as never seen before….well, here he is! Thanks to my sister, Lynne, who helped to manipulate the images. This isn’t the final version, but it will be along these lines. Please let me know what you think!

Rose’s Playlist (3) – Eternal Flame by The Bangles

Rose still pines for Richard, who is her ‘Eternal Flame’ but she sees a real example when she visits Bosworth Battlefield site, where Richard has emulated the customs he saw on his visit to the future by having an eternal flame burning for the ‘unknown soldier’. It was a great reason to use one of my favourite songs, Eternal Flame by the Bangles, as a scene title.

Click on the link to see the video of the song.
