While shopping last night at the only Whole Foods Market in the city of New Orleans, I had a surprising and quite pleasant experience.
First let me say... I wasn’t at the Whole Foods because I’m ultra bourgie or anything. Heck, I go to the Walmart on Tchoupitoulas as well. But sometimes I wanna get cute with my mustard selection.
Or watch with my own eyes as they put $85 worth of groceries into one paper bag. (Whereas at Walmart, they put $40 worth of groceries into 15 plastic bags.)
Anyhoo... last night I stopped in my tracks, somewhere around the prepared foods aisle, when this song came over the Muzak.
Now you must admit, that is one frickin’ deep cut to be hearing at the grocery store. I was delighted. And it wasn’t no fluke, because earlier in the mix was “Fancy Dancer” by the Commodores... another deep cut.
I’ve been having good Muzak karma lately. Over the weekend at Burbank Airport, the cuts weren’t deep, but they were plenty tasty. “Love Hangover”... “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)”... “The Groove Line.” Sounded like something I might’ve mixed.
