Music: Inspirer and Distractor

DebE —  March 19, 2012 — 1 Comment

In this case, it’s a distraction. I just have such a soft spot for a waltz (something I have only recognized in the last few years … I suddenly realized that so many of my favourite tunes happen to be waltzes).

This one makes me want to sway and jump along with it. Shame about the sprained ankle & foot at the moment … lucky they’re both on the same side. I still have one foot to tap.

I was going to say how much I love being a part of The Countdown crew because it exposes me to music from all over … but, I see this song is from the UK, so nothing special popular-music-wise (UK/USA/Australia are all well represented on NZ radio and TV) … ah well, maybe in a day or two I’ll pick a stand out from somewhere particularly interesting.




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
