[Music] I Love Randomness

DebE —  November 27, 2012 — Leave a comment

For me, driving to work takes approximately 15mins, after dropping the toddler off. Yep, 15mins… and that’s pretty much right across town. That’s Dunedin for ya! I get frustrated when traffic is moving at 40K/H. Honestly, I have no idea how people cope with actual traffic jams.

Anyway, I have an MP3 disc in my car that I just have on random all the time, and I just felt like sharing what I got this morning…

I heard a total of three songs on my way to work…

First up, was Pantera with “Cemetery Gates” (the only song I’ve had positive comments for karaokeing to…)

Next up was Deftones “Knife Party” (the song I’ve always considered Jonas’ theme song) – yay!

And last, but not least, was Hawksley Workman “Not Your Parents’ Music”…

I don’t know about you, but hearing that song start after the other two just put a smile on my face. I have a particular soft spot for it because the first time I heard it I was pregnant with Josh – about to become a parent (already was, depending how you define it)… I always thought it would be cool to listen to with Josh, so it’s been in my car ever since…




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.
