Rose’s Playlist (14) – Magic by Pilot

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.

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 (11) – Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison

Desperate, Rose resorts to psychic mediumship to try to contact Richard – after all he would technically be dead by the twenty first century. She visits her friend’s psychic circle and has a message from a mysterious woman with hazel brown eyes.

Of course, this title had to be Van Morrison’s ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ – such a great song. Click to see the video.

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 (9) – Stop Your Sobbing by The Pretenders

Laura tries to comfort Rose after Richard’s bombshell, but she cannot control her see-sawing emotions and she begins to question her own worth. Why do the men in her life leave her?

I thought the great song, ‘Stop Your Sobbing‘ by The Pretenders was just right to portray this scene. Click to see the video.

Rose’s Playlist (8) – Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton

Chapter Three begins with Rose again trying to contact Richard at the Major Oak. She is delighted when she first hears and then sees him, but every time she tries to approach closer he fades. Finally, he places a scroll of parchment in a niche in the tree for her to retrieve and he is gone. She is excited to read what he has to say, but this soon turns to heartbreak when she reads that he won’t be coming back again.

The emotional ‘Unbreak My Heart’ by Toni Braxton is perfect for this scene. Click here for the video of the song: Unbreak My Heart

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.

Rose’s Playlist (5) – Blank Space by Taylor Swift

Rose visits the Major Oak every year to try to meet Richard and each time the ‘meetings’ are unsatisfactory and fleeting. She  cannot see him but ‘hears’ his thoughts in her head and he can ‘hear’ hers. She gives away that she still loves him and explains he has left a ‘blank space’ in her heart…

Blank Space by Taylor Swift is the ideal song for this scene.
