Music plays a big role in the life of the six “Terribly Important!” protagonists. Here you get a collection of all the music, which runs in the book:

1 Oasis — Definitely Maybe

Pat loves to listen to Oasis, especially in connection with alcohol and pot. Before the prechristmasparty Pat, Luc, and Dan listen to the songs Live Forever, Supersonic and Columbia while they try to get drunk. One fact every Oasis fan should know: Pat is more into Liam Gallaghers than Noel Gallaghers voice.

2 Shades Apart — Stranger By The Day

Dan has in his white Nissan 350 Z a 16 gigabyte big USB stick with a big classic music collection from his high school times on it. He bought the album from Shades Apart a few years ago in the record store and fell in love with the song ‘Stranger By The Day’. When he is stressed he often listens to this song, which reminds him to good and easy times.

3 Def Leppard — Photograph

Also Def Leppard is one of Dans favourite band. He usually listens to this rock classics, especially Photograph, when he is in elation or wants to get to this condition. He first heard that track at a jukebox in a rock bar and bought when he came home drunk via Amazon their album Pyromania.

4 KC & The Sunshine Band — Give It Up

Chloe loves 80s pop. She saw in her student times an old top of the pops video from KC & The Sunshine Bands ‘Give It Up’ and since then never got away from this catchy tune.

“Terribly Important!” firstly got in a German paperback version into stores. The English version is available as an eBook at conventional stores like Amazon, Rakuten kobo and Google Books.
