Re: [ARSCLIST] Muzak is bankrupt

I guess I always resented Muzak for cheapening music. Not because of the arrangements or the squashed dynamics but for the pervasiveness of it. I think that it made folks take something for granted that I've always considered to be something special.
I suppose it may have evolved from the old piano bars that drew like minded people to sing together. I never see those anymore and I think it's a great loss. Of course there's Karaoke and maybe it's a sign of the times. The piano bar always seemed to be about "us" and belonging, while Karaoke is all about me.
Enough with the soapbox?

OTOH, this saves them from trying to assemble supermarket-friendly
collections of "rap" and hip-hop hits of the last decade or two...?!

I used to totally confuse other folks in supermarkets...since Muzak used
"old" songs(back then, often from the teens and twenties...?!) I often
started "singing along" to the music...?!
