In my present work in progress there's a bunch of teenage girls involved in a talent show. There's one girl, AJ, who is an incredibly talented dancer who is a loner and doesn't talk to anyone. The other girls kinda don't want to go ask her to clear off the stage when she's practicing (which she does constantly) so she gets it to herself most of the time. Tess (my MC) is a singer who's new to the scene and hasn't made friends yet so she didn't know the dancer had been christened a weirdo and was unexpectedly nice to her. As a result AJ offers to share the stage so they can both practice at the same time together. They both practice without really interacting but at the end of that first session AJ tentatively comes and tells Tess she sings well and it's nice to hear her singing while she's practicing; the first step in them forming a quiet little friendship and exploring why AJ is a bit fragile and reclusive. At a later point I want AJ to ask Tess to sing something for her; a song that her deceased mum used to play when she was little. It needs to be something that suits Tess' soprano voice and that makes sense to be something that a 30ish mum would play to her 6ish year old daughter around 2005/6. It can certainly be something from further in the past, because it's supposed to be her mum's favorite song not just the latest number one but I'm looking for something that's widely known enough for a good chunk of the teenage audience of this book to not just go 'Who?'. Also it can't be Beautiful by Christina Aguilera because that's Tess' signature song that has resonance to her enough that I don't want to change it just to make this fit here. It doesn't really matter that much what the song is here; I'm not going to play with the lyrics and draw parallels to who AJ is today or anything, but I do want something that's kinda sad and has the right feel for a song to remember your dead parent by, as well as being a song her dad won't let her play at home so it's a big deal to her to share it with Tess. So, I ask you all mums and mum-like people - What song should I go for? Edit - Not 'Your Heart Will Go On'.
