MIGHTY NEIN PLAYLIST: Jester
Written by Rachel on January 4, 2019
The next installment in our Mighty Nein playlist series is centered on our donut-loving tiefling cleric, Jester.
Our playlists are curated carefully by each Critical Role cast member and our previous character playlists can be found on Spotify via the official Critical Role account or you can listen to the playlist embedded below.
And now, a few words from the sweet and very bad ass Laura Bailey.
Come With Me (Pure Imagination) by Karmin
Growing up in semi-isolation can do a lot for your creativity. Jester was forced to spend a lot of time with her imagination and now, it’s where she feels the most comfortable.
Trouble is a Friend by Lenka
Enter the Traveler.
Sometimes he was the best friend a girl could ever dream of… and sometimes he helped her bite off more than she could chew. But, he is always by her side.
come out and play by Billie Eilish
A song for mama. More than anything, Jester wants her to be happy. If only she could take that first step.
The Wave by Elohim
A song for dad. Searched high and low for any word of him — then when she least expected it… crash. The wave hit her.
these are my friends by lovelytheband
Imaginary or not, this band of misfits she’s found herself in is greater than anything she could have drawn up.
I Want Candy by Bow Wow Wow
Put the Fire Out by The Colourist
A song for Caleb. Jester wants to help him step away from the flames. She just doesn’t know how to.
You’re Somebody Else by flora cash
When you think you know someone and you really like them but then they start behaving differently than you’ve ever seen and you don’t know if it’s the real them finally peeking out or if it’s just a mask they’re trying on for a little bit and you feel really confused about it. Also, they sort of kissed you.
The New Great Depression by The Moth & The Flame
So… she may be hiding some of her emotions.
Tightrope by Sara Bareilles
You guys were crazy if you thought you’d be getting out of this playlist without hearing from my bestie Sara. (Note: Sara is currently unaware of our mutual friendship.)
After joining the Mighty Nein, Jester has been a little concerned that the Traveler isn’t happy that she’s finding some new friends. But after he came to her aid when few others were able to, she knows he’ll always be there guiding and protecting her. She’ll walk any tightrope with him by her side.
I’ll Follow the Sun by The Beatles
No matter what pain life may have in store down the road, Jester will always try to shine with joy. Living in the moment and loving life is her way.
