I do my grocery shopping at Giant and Whole Foods, with an occasional visit to Trader Joe's.

Sunday 8/19 at Giant:

The Kaiser Chiefs: "I Predict a Riot" (this was followed up by Peter Cetera's "Hard to Day I'm Sorry")

Giant has really been stepping up their music game lately.

Giant has been killing it lately for sure....also, between songs there are announcements to the effect of: "go ahead, sing along."  So, I now treat every grocery visit as karaoke until security escorts me the fuck out.

Tuesday, 8/21, Giant:

For me it was a tie:

A Flock of Seagulls-"I Ran"
Til Tuesday "Voices Carry"

I asked my wife to vote to break the tie, and she chose AFOS.

Til Tuesday "Voices Carry"
was listening to some classic gang green recnetly and I always loved their cover of this song and how they changed this one key lyric
"When I tell her that I'm falling down drunk what does she say-a-ay."

just ran across this and thought I'd share

No prob, Anyone can post. I just spent nine hours at King's Dominion and heard maybe three good songs the whole time. Superstition, Private Eyes, and an Avett Brothers song.

8/26 Giant

It seemed like Patterson Hood was playing dj.

First I heard London Calling and that was followed by Sweet Home Alabama.

I'm calling that one a tie.

and to think, I mindlessly walk through the aisles, more interested in what my stomach, is telling me to buy. of course, I am obsessed also, with watching all people, and mentally breaking them down psychologically based on their movements, facial actions and what they are wearing.  what . . . music.  every,once in a,while I do hear that what was awful before, is now updated and attempting to be, cool.

Sunday, 9/2 Giant.

Elvis Costello "The Angels Want to Wear My Red Shoes"
Squeeze "Pulling Mussels From a Shell"

I'm going to call this one a tie.

I never tried mussels or even paid mind to what they were until I was in my 30's. (Turns out they make me violently ill, so maybe my ignorance was a blissing.) I think every other dorm room window was blasting that song in the 80's. I always though the guy was singing the jock anthem "Pulling Muscles for Michelle."

Tuesday 9/11- Madonna-Lucky Star

(it was the only song played, but it still made me think how much better top 40 was in the late 80s.)
