Seeing as Peacemaker is back...

I had a brainwave about Peacemaker yesterday and can’t wait to write it in. Been thinking about Virgin’s personality and how I want her to be different to Parrish Plessis and some of my other strong female characters. Essentially, Virgin is capable and strong but she’s also an introvert. Prefers her own company and isn’t interested in sharing too much of herself. Knowing this, it then became apparent to me who she would hook up with for … you know … company. Of course you’ll have to read it to find out. But in the meantime…

It’s time to update the play list and I totally love this song. Interesting to compare the two versions though. When The Skids are younger the vocals seem purer, but when they’re older the delivery is way more heartfelt.

    Like this! Personally, I like some rough edges to my music, so I’m not at all unhappy with the second version vocally. It also has a lot of heart.

  • Marianne

    Totally agree with you J-A. Great heart.

    By the way, if you’re looking for something else to add to your playlist with this kind of feel, let me suggest ‘Lung Sum’ by The Paper Scissors (a Sydney band).

    Hmmmm, I like it. Doesn’t fit with Peacemaker but I’ll tuck it away for another piece. Might fit with my short story for the antho I mentioned.
