Music: New Zealand Music Month – Bic Runga

Quick post here so I can get stuck into progressing on my current draft of my WiP. Progressing in leaps and bounds on that one (1k-2k per day despite my short time frame, just because I’m doing a ton of copying and pasting from older versions and just smoothing transitions for the moment … then a full read through, edit, line-edit, beta-readings, etc etc, I can see the end in sight, though, which is very exciting).

So, as mentioned in the Stellar* post, you might have heard of Bic Runga before, particularly in this song, which featured on the “American Pie” soundtrack (there doesn’t seem to be a video, despite me being pretty sure I’ve seen one before …):

Another of her popular tunes was Sway:

And for something more recent, check out “Hello Hello”:

Yep, that’s her son in the video.

Enjoy. I’m off to write.



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.
