Welcome back! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
In these chapters we read about the time Sarah & Casey are held in captivity from both Chuck & Sarah’s point of view; that Frost & Orion were probably killed on a boat going to Benoit’s yacht; some mud wrestling with Carina and a startling number of disparaging comments about librarians - They can be a dodgy bunch.
Title song: Wish You Were Here

Title song(s) - I couldn’t choose so you get two!

From: Separated in Prague. Sarah sings about “children of their love” in the basement (Unsrer Liebe Kinder schenken, so liebe kleine Kinderlei)
Papageno and Papagena duet from The Magic Flute
From: “Where the thought came from, he didn’t know, but he was suddenly reminded of Papageno at the end of The Magic Flute. All the bird catcher wanted in life was to find his love, his Papagena. When all hope that he would ever find her was lost, Papageno tossed a noose over a branch of a tree. While Chuck didn’t understand German, he caught the gist of what was going on and knew that Papageno was basically singing, “Goodbye cruel world.”
Papagena! from The Magic Flute
Random AN: Had to wonder if Sarah’s captor’s line “And it looks like the nose piercing has disappeared.” Was a reference to the nose piercing Yvonne had. Didn’t know about that? Find it here!
Title song Rescue Me
Single by Fontella Bass; songwriting credit to Raynard Miner and Carl William Smith, although many other sources also credit Bass herself as a co-writer
Title song Never Let You Go Again
music and lyrics by George Kennedy, Wayne Kirkpatrick and Tommy Sims. From Trisha Yearwood’s album, Where Your Road Leads.
We also hear “The Imperial March” again in this chapter. (You know where to find it.)
Title song Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered
song from the 1940 Rogers and Hart musical Pal Joey. I like this Sarah Vaughn version.
AN: While Sarah was sharing her “most memorable mission” on the train ride to Vienna, I couldn’t help thinking about a great mud wrestling scene and the song that played from one of my favorite movies – Stripes. So …..
From the movie Stripes - song recorded by the American vocal group The Spinners - written by producer Thom Bell and singer-songwriter Linda Creed
At the amusement park: The Blue Danube
Composed by Johan Strauss II From the 2013 New Year’s Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
