5 on Friday - Set 8

















Here is my third character sketch for the love triangle I'm currently writing about. So far you've been introduced to Peredur, a Dark Ages Welsh warrior who becomes a vampire, through Set 6.

Next you met Tanwen, the beloved of Peredur who is left behind in the human realm after his battlefield death, in Set 7.

Today I'm profiling Cavan, the son of the village wise woman, who has always lived in a state of unrequited love for Tanwen. The sequence of five songs runs along Cavan's character arc for the story.

For more great tunes, and if you want to play along, visit Travis at Trav's Thought's.

1 - Without Her - Harry Nilsson

I spend the night in a chair thinking she'll be there
But she never comes
And I wake up and wipe the sleep from my eyes
And I rise to face another day
Without her

And it sounds like a lie
I said I'd rather die than live without her
Without her, I can't go on
There's no song without her


- Ham / Evans



2 - Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix

Well, I stand up next to a mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise a little sand

Cause I'm a voodoo child

If I don't meet you no more in this world, then, uh
I'll meet ya on the next one
I'm a voodoo child baby
I don't take no for an answer


- the Jimi Hendrix Experience



3 - I'm Going Home - Tim Curry

Free to try and find a game
Dealing cards for sorrow
Cards for pain

Cause I've seen blue skies
Through the tears in my eyes
And I realize
I'm going home


O'Brien / Sharman



4 - I Don't Care If the Sun Don't Shine - Elvis Presley

Well I don't care if the sun don't shine
I get my lovin' in the evening time
When I'm with my baby

Well, it ain't no fun with the sun around
I get going when the sun goes down
And I'm with my baby


- Mack David



5 - See Me Feel Me - The Who

See me
Feel me
Touch me
Heal me

Listening to you
I get the music
Gazing at you
I get the heat
Following you
I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet


- Pete Townshend

Time Curry, Harry Nielson, and Elvis in one set - Now that's creative thinking. Great choices. I'm setting the mood in a different way with Movie Themes.

And I appreciate that you don't let the constraints of Playlist.com hold you back from sharing the exact tunes you want to use.

Tim Curry - I loves me some Tim Curry!

What a creative group of songs you have here! I especially like your choice by The Who, "See Me/Feel Me" has always been one of my very favorites!
