Sometimes when I flick the car radio to a mumsy station, I hear Bachelor Girl’s Buses and Trains. A classic 1998 hit. I love it, and it remains so relevant.
I haven’t driven for a while, thus haven’t heard Buses and Trains, but it’s in my head. Probably due to affairs of my heart. It’s the music I’ve been missing.
I met the gorgeous Tania Doko, lead singer, a few times. Once, at the Darren Hayes concert at Hamer Hall in 2007.
And also at her garage sale – I have her little letter desk.
Two bits of Buses and Trains resonate:
They’re like chocolate cake, like cigarettesI know they’re bad for me but I just can’t leave them alone.
A man can kill and still be the sweetest thing
See, I’m still hung up on the wrong guy. I know he’s bad for me. But because of this, the good things he does shine like like gold.
And there’s the right guy, actually waiting for me. True story.
I need to re-prioritise. And keep the doors to rooms filled with adventure and positivity open. It’s the only way to happiness.
