listening to candle in the wind. pan pipe version.
who makes these decisions?
You be happy it's only on the phone. I remember when I worked in one of those convenience shops - smaller than Tesco, bigger than Newsagent, just right to ruin your life.
It was mandatory that a tape of some pop classics was played in the store. This tape lasted 4 hours. This meant that on an average 10 hour shift, you heard songs twice.
However, they weren't the actual songs. They were what I can only describe as Casio keyboard approximations of what the song might sound like had the recording artist never heard the original before.
The managers never did figure out why I was always so enthusiastic to cart trash to the bins outside - it was the only escape.
If I ever meet the executive responsible for the implementation of those tapes, he's going to get a punch - square in the dick.
