Songs of the… whim (N+1)

I have a Winamp playlist set up on my computer. But often I want to hear music I don’t own a personal copy of. Also, sometimes I just like the idea of a band earning royalties from my listening to their song, even if I’ve already paid for that “right” years ago. I struggle to find a “real” radio station that caters to my interests, and so I tune into Pandora, or more specifically my Healer’s Touch Pandora Station (not that I don’t have others). Tonight, Pandora played Chevelle “Saturdays” for me. With a sound very similar to the Deftones, I wasn’t complaining…

But if that’s not your cuppa (that’s right, I’m trying to look after everyone here – a recipe for disaster, more than likely), you may just (like me) appreciate the painful honesty of Yuna’s “Decorate”:

*Disclaimer: Yes, I’ve posted Yuna’s song before, but… but… meh.



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.
