EXANDRIA UNLIMITED PLAYLIST: FEARNE
Written by Christina on July 21, 2021
The good vibes continue with another character playlist inspired by Exandria Unlimited! ExU playlists drop on Wednesdays so check back here each week for some sweet sweet tunes!
These playlists are curated carefully by each of the Exandria Unlimited cast members. All of our playlists can be found on Spotify via the official Critical Role account or you can listen to the playlist directly embedded below.
This week’s playlist is inspired by Fearne, brought to you by the flower queen herself, Ashley Johnson.
Getting to sit at the table with all of these wonderful humans, was beyond incredible and filled my heart with so much happiness and joy. I have come to absolutely adore each and every one of them. I felt so lucky to share and be a part of the story and the space we were creating together. There’s really nothing like it.
Fearne has been a delight to play. There’s so much freedom in acting on your first instinct. She’s chaotic, she’s lovely and daring and an absolute “experiment in terror,” wrapped up in all of the bows. She’s an ancient, rococo pin-up faun, that’s a little more than meets the eye. A little left of center, coy and deeply curious.
I don’t want to give too much away, in case we ever get to revisit Fearne’s story. But I’ll let these songs and the lyrics they carry, tell her story.
As usual with my playlists, there’s a flow and an order to things. Press play, sit back, turn up those speakers and let’s go on a journey, shall we?
Fruit of Dreams by Les Baxter
Step on through the gate to the Fey Realm. It’s quite beautiful. A bit strange, but it’s home.
Snakes and Waterfalls by Nick Shoulders
We’ve been here for a long, long time. Nana’s home is so lovely, I’m hoping one day we’ll get to visit.
It’s my land. Snakes and waterfalls. The beauty and the terror.
Moi je joue by Brigitte Bardot
Sans m’en faire
Je vais t’assurer
De griffes et de crocs
Tu crieras bientôt
I Put a Spell on You by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
My apologies, Poska. xo, fearne.
Experiment In Terror by Henry Mancini
She swings, she sways.
Black Magic Woman by VCTRYS
A little black magic never hurt anybody.
A Little Wicked by Valerie Broussard
Fearne’s a little wicked and she has a job to do. A mission, if you will.
Keep Lyin’ by Donna Missal
Keep lying… but I know who you are. 😉
Otherside by Perfume Genius
Even though we may be apart, we still miss each other from the Otherside. Miss you, Nana Morri.
Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris by Hayley Williams
Fill me with all of the flowers.
I can break through the Earth, come out soft and wild…
My Lagan Love by Lisa Hannigan
Vinter by Myrkur
In Norwegian, the meaning of Myrkur has many layers. It’s a darkness, murky. Something that is difficult to understand. Strange. A perfect explanation of Fearne.
I Concentrate On You by Nellie McKay
Remember that time we got to see the sea, my darling?
The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Tasmin Little
This is such a beautiful piece. Like the violin that remains constant throughout, Fearne flits about, finding friends along the way. Making beautiful music together, intertwining in one another. You may catch a glimpse of her in the woods she knows so well, perfectly content alone. Still dancing and enjoying herself just the same.
Edelweiss by Bill Lee, Charmian Carr
Bloom and grow forever. 😉
