don giovanni

on background music

At Red Robin yesterday, the ambient music seemed to be playing some kind of acoustic version of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy". I'm thinking to myself, this was a pretty good rendition, so I googled it. Nothing for sure, but I'd be horrified to ultimately find out that I liked something by Nelly Furtado. edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wQ0Tl7f7Rg

Meanwhile, I have a new cube buddy. He's sitting next to me, and comments out of the blue "Is that Lou Reed?" One of the other cubicles seems to be playing, barely audibly, a muzak jazz version of "walk on the wild side".

Today, it's played twice, so we can't figure out if it's a web broadcast or a mix tape.

Subversiveness seems to come at me from all sides.
