Music: Music to Write to – “Might As Well Get Used To It”

DebE —  June 30, 2012 — Leave a comment

I have this song in my “inspiration” playlist. This song, but a different version (without all the extra little add-on bits … I think the version I have is less distracting, and much nicer), but, heck, you take what you can get when it comes to sharing from Youtube.

This is NZ band The Dead Flowers – much better known back in the ’90s with songs like “Dead Boy”, “Same Same“, and “Watch Her Play

And, for pure self-indulgence, here’s another fave of mine, “You Drink The Water, I’ll Drink The Wine”:

That was a fabulous album, by the way (1998 Release “Dead Flowers – Self-titled”). Their album “Sweetfish” (1994) was probably better known . . . I don’t know why. I think its singles just got more radio play – that’s how I felt, anyway, because I loved the second album, but often felt like the only one.




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.
