In Medias Res
A day off (and the thing I was remembering about macaroni,) part one


If ever I get in the mood to talk for longer than 280 characters about the White House evil, I'll go back to antiquated notions and do it there. I kinda feel like being a little more personal and intimate in this one; light-hearted and sincere in turn, etc. 

They play this song at the store sometimes. It's one I've always liked, woke up with it in my head this morning.

I like about...30% of what they play, mostly in evening. During the day, the top of the hour songs drive me nuts. The only one I ever liked to begin with is "Blitzkrieg Bop," which sometimes plays at 3 pm, but I've heard it enough times now. The music comes from a service originating in Princeton, NJ, by the way. It's clearly marketed toward 40- and 50-somethings, which amuses me, but...

I think the newest song I ever hear is "Broken" by lovelytheband. I like that band, in reasonable doses. Tied for top of the hour worst thing ever oh god please stop are "Centerfield" by John Fogerty and "Jump" by Kriss Kross. The best thing is sometimes in the late afternoon or evening I hear "Ain't Nobody" by Chaka Khan

Here are the main daytime top of the hour songs besides the ones I named. How I wish I could just wear headphones while shopping. Okay, I liked two of them as well, years ago, but do not anymore.

Survivor - "Eye of the Tiger"
Kenny Loggins - "I'm Alright"
Pat Benatar - "Hit Me With Your Best Shot"
Black Eyed Peas - "Let's Get It Started"
Guns n Roses - "Welcome to the Jungle"
C+C Music Factory - "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)"
Technotronic - "Pump Up the Jam"
Van Halen - "Jump"

Sometimes they play the only Cure song I can definitely say I do not like. :-/ Sometimes they play one I do like. But mostly, the above list is a relentless daily feature of my life now.
