Ben Howard’s “Keep Your Head Up.” Reminds me so much of the journey that Rich takes in Series 6.
He has gone through absolute hell and tragedy. He has lost the woman he loves in the worst way. All series we get a sense that Rich is trying to hold onto the beauty of this world and the love that Grace gave him.
This song is about not losing who you are even when things get hard. I picture the first verse is about Rich’s initial emotions after finding out about Grace. The second verse is about him coming back from being gone and finding comfort in the familiarity of Alo. The last verse is Rich thinking about Grace. While the chorus is Grace in Rich’s head reminding him to “keep his head up” (keep going…everything is beautiful,) “keep your heart strong” (that she loved him), and to “keep your hair long” (don’t lose you.)
