‘Six’ the musical is one that I’ve definitely seen a lot over the last few years. When I was deciding what musical to do next for my new series, ‘Six’ is one of the first that came to mind. I will be honest here, I have listened to the finale song “Six” before this and I absolutely loved it so I definitely had high hopes for this musical.
This song definitely reminded me of the Horrible Histories song for the wives of Henry VII which I liked. I really liked the synth like backing music and overall I thought the song was very catchy and a song I could see myself dancing too. I think this was a good way to introduce all the queens without tons of dialogue. Now this might be a bit obscure but I felt like the moments that were just instrumental reminded me of an 8-bit video game. Has anyone heard that before?
Again, this was a very catchy song and I felt like there was a sort of a party/celebration undertone to it. I really like the key and feel change in the bridge part of the song.
Don’t Lose Ur Head
I really liked this song and it’s now been added to some of my playlists. It’s definitely the song I’ve listened to the most after listening to this for the first time. I did hear this song quite a lot before on TikTok but it definitely didn’t take away from the song. I felt this song was also quite educational, I actually know a lot more about Anne Boleyn now
Heart of Stone
I absolutely loved that this song is so different from the other songs and is in the form of a ballad. I love that this musical does have a little variation in the type of songs. I think it would be a really fun song to sing and really belt. It was definitely a sad song though which is again very different from the rest of the songs on the album thus far.
Haus of Holbein
I like how the party atmosphere is back. It’s a very big cotrast again from the previous song. I think this is one of my least favourites but even then, it was still quite good.
This song is definitely my least favourite on the album. I did enjoy the build up around the pre-chorus though. I also really liked how the song played on the rhyme “I’m the King of the castle”.
All You Wanna Do
Again, I have also heard this song a lot on TikTok so it was instantly recognisable for me. I liked the pre-chorus again and I found myself tapping the beat to this song which is always a good thing.
I Don’t Need Your Love
This was a different feel to the rest of the songs and I actually really liked the lyrics. From a historical standpoint, it was really interesting to find out more about Catherine Parr as she really is forgotten when the history of this time is discussed. The other Queens joining in was also very good and I loved the harmonies between them all.
Like I said, this is the only song from the album that I listened to before this and it’s still my favourite song from the musical. It gives a lovely overview of all the queens and is just like one big part and celebration.
I really did enjoy this musical. There was a wide range of different styles of songs and I loved the historical learning side of it. I learnt a lot more here about the wives of King Henry VIII than I ever did in school.
I think teh song “Six” is still my favourite from the album and my least favourite was probably “Get Down”. This musical will definitely make its way onto some of my playlists.
