MIGHTY NEIN PLAYLIST: Nott the Brave
Written by Rachel on December 21, 2018
The third installment in our Mighty Nein playlist series is centered on our favorite booze-loving goblin rogue, Nott.
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 Emmy Award winner, Sam Riegel.
Shoplifting by The Slits
Ah, the thrill of the perfect crime. Yes, Nott the Brave steals for survival… but let’s not kid ourselves — she also kinda loves it.
Ugly by Violent Femmes
Funny tune, but also how Nott views herself. Loudly, constantly, mockingly ugly.
I Will Follow Him by Little Peggy
Meeting Caleb ignited a flame of hope in our skittish goblin. She quickly pledged herself to his protection and care. Where he goes, she will follow.
The Wizard and I by Stephen Schwartz
Remarkably perfect song reflecting Nott’s dream of being saved by the magic of a wizard. Favorite line: “Would it be all right by you if I de-green-ify you?”
I Got Drunk by Mal Blum
Brilliant track about the monotony of drunkenness. Nott relies on her inebriation more than she probably should. But booze is always there, a steady, reassuring friend.
Brave by Riley Pearce
In this song, I hear less about bravery and more about trying to be courageous for someone else. This is a powerful driving force behind some of Nott’s finer moments. She’s not trying to prove anything to herself — she’s doing it for another person.
Hotel Detective by TMBG
Being a small-time detective gives Nott endless entertainment, and has sparked a unique friendship with Jester, one she hopes will last forever.
Hiding and Seeking by Little Chief
She is always hiding from the judgment of others… but also seeking their acceptance. It’s a tricky balance, one that Nott has not yet mastered.
Psycho Killer by Talking Heads
Nott may be anxious, but if you push her around too much, the little goblin girl might get set off. And then… it’s on.
Self Care by Mac Miller
Tragic song by a tragic musician. Nott’s need to self-medicate could get her killed one day, but to her, it’s worth it.
Two Birds by Regina Spektor
The lyrics describe a wonderful, inseparable pair. But there’s a lingering doubt. Something standing in the way. Some force that might pull them apart someday…
Sinking Ship by Wild Child
Just a really sad, beautiful song. Nott has a deep, underlying regret every day of her life. But sometimes you need to experience true sadness to emerge on the other side.
S.O.B. by Nathaniel Rateliff
How wonderful it would be if we could all just let loose, be who we are inside, and get totally f—ked up.
