Vive L'Amour: Music Hop

Random Magic Tour: Vive L’Amour

He Said/She Said: Musical blog hop

Romance, flirting, mad passion,
melancholy regret and bitter heartbreak…
Find songs that share every nuance of love
from male and female points of view,
on this sweet musical blog hop!


Music is a strong theme in Random Magic -- so strong, in fact, that one of the celestial characters Winnie and Henry meet is Efterpe, the Muse of music.

Love is another strong theme in the book, and so in honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s a fun blog hop to check out, featuring songs about love.

For each stop, you’ll be able to listen to two love songs -- one love song written by (or interpreted by) a man, and one by a woman, to be fair and give the fellows equal time to wax lyrical or poetic or happy-go-lucky or broken-hearted or philosophical, and so on…

Love You Madly - Cake

He said:

I don't want to doubt you
Know everything about you
I don't want to sit across the table from you
Wishing I could run
I want to love you madly

Song’s commentary on love: If passion's driving the engine, the odds are there's no one at the wheel.


Some Like It Hot - Club des Belugas

She said:

I'm a lover, I'm a hexer, I'm a queen
I'm the ruler of emperors and kings
I'm a woman who won't play by the rules
I'm a lover who never plays it cool

Song’s commentary on love: Well, some like it hot.

Random Magic quote:

Aha,” he said accusingly, holding up the daisy as indisputable proof. A thin, single petal dangled precariously from the yellow bulb.

“Love me,” he said smugly, and waggled his perfectly arched eyebrows.

“Knew it.”

“Get over yourself, Eros,” said the girl in blue. “Don’t you have archery practice or something?” (More)
