Mary M’s Infinite Playlist

I get nervous easy. That’s why I keep so damn busy all the time so I don’t have to focus on how scared I really am. One of the ways I keep busy with a show looming on the horizon (previews tonight!) is by creating my character a playlist. As in what would my character be listening to right now. I know, it might seem a little weird, but I enjoy it.

Now my director has told me I need to have a dance party before the show starts to warm up (which my stage manager has gleefully decided to join me in on), but what does Mary Magdalene listen to during the day?

Here’s what I came up with:

And I’ve been poked and stoked. It’s all smoke, there’s no more fire, only desire for you, wherever you are.


I’ll tear out every page, I’ll give into my rage and if you come back I’ll swear you off for good. My chances looking slim when happiness looks grim. I like this dark place the liquor cheap and good.


Who finds the money? When you pay the rent? Did you think that money was Heaven sent?


She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones. It was then he felt alone and wished that he’d gone straight and watched out for a simple twist of fate.

And of course, it’s a little on the nose but:

When You Were Young – The Killers
You sit there in your heartache waiting on some beautiful boy to save you from your old ways.

As this is an “infinite” playlist, feel free to leave additional suggestions in the comment section.
