Musical Confusion

I’m standing at the Quizno’s waiting to place my order and the music playing overhead is an assault on my sensibilities as the music is crashing and the lyrics aren’t so much singing as some sort of screeching shout. I have to assume we’re listening to the likes of Korn, or maybe Ozzy and Black Sabbath. I don’t like it and the former retail manager in me thinks this is inappropriate music for public consumption.

As if reading my mind however, the song finishes, and the next one begins… Elton John, Benny and the Jets.

The thought that went through my mind when I walked in the door, resurfaces. “What the hell are we listening to?!?” Such a strange combination of songs!

  1. I hate being assaulted by music when I’m in a store or restaurant. There was a time when my daughter really wanted some Hollister clothing and I quickly determined that having to be in that store was a form of torture for anyone over the age of 20.

    Benny and the Jets, though… is appropriate any time, anywhere! πŸ™‚

    1. I’m afraid I wouldn’t know about music at Hollister. Between the very small entrance and the excessively muscular and perpetually shirtless mannequins in the front, I’m terrified to go inside. I assume it’s like some sort of elitist society that will tar and feather me before throwing me naked on the side of a hot desert road.

      Maybe. πŸ™‚

  2. OMG I am so surprised that you don’t like Ozzy.

    methinks… that you haven’t listened to the right pieces..
    Keep an open mind and listen to these two ok.

    And one more Kevin… This is Black Sabbath…

    I enjoy a wide variety of music. Almost all types actually…well I just can’t get into most rap.

    Let me know what you think of those ok?

    1. OK, the first one did not suck. However, it sounds a whole lot like “Imagine” to me, for whatever that’s worth. I can’t help but be fascinated that he can sing SO clearly but you can’t understand a single spoken word that comes out of his mouth!

      The second song wasn’t awful either, but it doesn’t do anything for me. Still sounds vaguely Beetle-esq to me.

      Hmmm… I can barely stand to listen to the Black Sabbath one.

      But I notice that all three of the songs you’ve selected for me are ballad-esq and that is not what these artists are known for, ya know?

      These numbers are NOTHING like what they had on at Quizno’s.

      Regardless though, anybody who bites the heads off of live animals, even bats, on stage, and just for fun? Not for me, thanks!

    1. As for my “Weight Loss Goal”, I’ll consider myself “done” when I can walk into Hollister with my head held high and feel like I’ll find clothes that fit and look good…

      ‘Course by that time, I’ll probably be too old to wear any of there stuff and they’ll still tar and feather me before throwing me on the side of a hot desert road.

      Maybe. πŸ™‚
