Vive L'Amour Tour / 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...

No quiero verla más - Estopa

He said:
I don't want to see her anymore, no, no...
I don't want to see her anywhere
I want to erase it all from my imagination

Song’s commentary on love: Can't win 'em all.
Lyrics: English translation

Bei Mir Bist Du Schön - The Puppini Sisters

She said:
I could say 'bella, bella,' (beautiful), even say 'wunderbar' (wonderful)
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are

Song’s commentary on love: Love is a universal language, and love speaks when words are insufficient. Or: The love of beauty and the beauty of love can run simultaneously.

Random Magic quote:
Hypatia spun round on her toadstool and giggled. Victory. "I think Morgoth has a crush on me," she said, grinning broadly. (More)
