I have already mentioned two songs that have become linked in my mind with RA, both due to fan videos which I encountered early on in my
obsession journey (see Challenge #2 and Favourite Fan Art Pieces). However, I’d rather like to mention a song for this challenge that has no *obvious* connection to RA at all, not through of other fans’ videos, through his work as an actor, nor by mentioning it as a favourite himself. Something entirely unrelated – yet somehow connected in my mind with him.
A song that reminds me of RA
This is from a Northern Irish band called Two Door Cinema Club whom I really like (and have seen in concert several times). The song featured heavily on my running playlist
in the long-gone days when I still went for a run every morning *hmph*, and it almost made me grin when the chorus came up. The words “he needs no army” were the signal, I guess – and since I was a relatively new member of the “RArmy” at the time, my ears must have been particularly tuned to the word… Plus, I think it’s true – he needs no army. Strictly speaking. I remind myself of that every once in a while… Now, whether he sleeps alone, that’s a different matter entirely *coughs*, but not one that I like discussing publicly.
Which songs do you associate with RA – I’d love to discover new stuff this way, so if it is unrelated to his work/fan vids/his recommendations, all the better. You can embed the YT video in the comments below. (In case you don’t know how to: on the YT site of the video, click on “Share” underneath the clip, then click “Embed”, and copy and paste the embed code into the comments.)
PS: Initially I thought I’d post this song – but ah no… old chestnut! And it’s also not a song I would habitually turn on for the pure enjoyment of music. But leaving the video here for you to simply enjoy the elegance of the long-legged alpha cat that is so big that it is not allowed centre stage for long because it overshadows all the rest… (For those who don’t know this clip – instructions by fellow fan Crystal Chandlyre in the video.)
PPS: I wonder whether his first job is also the reason why he says he doesn’t like felines… 😹
