MIGHTY NEIN PLAYLIST: VETH BRENATTO
Written by Christina on July 10, 2020
This week’s playlist showcases the growth Veth Brenatto has gone through since she joined the Mighty Nein as the little goblin girl calling herself Nott the Brave.
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. The rest of this Mighty Nein installment will roll out weekly on Fridays. If you missed last week’s playlist (Caleb #2) be sure to check it out, here.
And now, turning it over to our tried-and-true bard Sam Riegel.
All the Small Things by GFOTY
For all you goblins, halflings, little ones… this one’s for you.
Drinking Again by Dinah Washington
Sometimes, when booze was near, Nott couldn’t help herself. Well, most of the time. Okay, always. But hey – she was scared of herself. The real question… will Veth be the same?
Runaway Pt. 1 (Love Has a Limit) by Colony House
Veth’s on the move. Sometimes she thinks she’s running away…
I’ve Got Friends by Manchester Orchestra
And sometimes she thinks she’s running home. Just taking the long way.
Nine Is God by Wavves
A strange song featuring the number nine for no apparent reason. Sort of like our strange group that features “Nein” for no apparent reason. And yet, both work so well.
Changing by The Airborne Toxic Event
When Nott had the chance to change back into Veth, there was definitely some hesitation. Big changes always come with resistance, even when they’re the right thing to do. Will everything be the same after? Will everything feel the same? Sometimes, you just gotta take the plunge.
Mother by Kacey Musgraves
No matter what, Veth is a mother first. And in those quiet moments, she’s always thinking about Luc. And what he might be thinking about her…
Pretty Hurts by Beyoncé
Don’t hate Veth because she’s beautiful. (But feel free to dislike her because she stole your stuff.)
Heavy Balloon by Fiona Apple
Definitely a song about dealing with adversity, depression and frustration. But I love the hope in it. And for Veth, given a new shot at life, she is certainly spreading and climbing. Blossoming.
Chaos by Miki Fiki
Life with the Mighty Nein is always chaotic. Filled with wrong choices, impossible obstacles, and near failures. We never seem to know the right thing to do, but screw it – we push ahead anyway. We have no other choice.
Heart In A Cage by Chris Thile
For so long, Veth’s inner feelings have been secondary to her outward goals. But now, with her newfound freedom, her heart might be wandering a little. She misses her husband, but Caleb is right there, lying next to her, and he doesn’t smell too bad anymore…
