Oh, OK. I'm a little slow on the uptake today, I guess.  ;D

Don't worry about it. My goofiness can be more than a bit vague at times.

But back to the topic at hand, I haven't actually been to a Walmart for over 7 years, so what do I know about what they're playing?

Interestingly, I recently happened upon a link to a bunch of old Kmart store audio that an employee digitized and put online...

I downloaded a couple of these and it's pretty nostalgic. And you know, they actually played some pretty decent tunes from that time between their little announcements. Cute.

Hey, Klang, further confirmation the end times are upon us...

I was in Walmart today, 10/30/16, and playing in the Garden Center of all things was The Ballad of John and Yoko!

It was quite an interesting juxtaposition to see all of the Christmas items on display and for sale while John is singing "Christ, you know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be, the way things are going, they're gonna crucify me..."

I was just going to ask what it was but I see you've edited your post and answered my question already! It seems like the programmers who provide public music are digging a little bit deeper into the catalog lately. Great choice!

I was watching an animated film, Kubo and the Two Strings, with my two boys. A better than average animated film set in Japan. The end credit song was Regina Spector doing a shamisen version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps.  Not a bad version either.

She does do a nice version. My daughter is a big Regina Spector fan. I'm happy that she was able to go see a live performance a few months ago.

Regina Spektor's version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps is very pretty...

It was Morticia Addams (Carolyn Jones) who got me interested in shamisen music...

Gomez Addams: Querida, will you marry me?
Morticia Frump: I thought you'd never ask.
Gomez Addams: [kisses her hair] Oh, your hair... That dress - drives me wild!
Morticia Frump: I'll never wear another.





<sigh>  True love!

I heard "I Saw Her Standing There" in a restaurant this afternoon. I was already happy after a good check up with the retina specialist and that added to it. I'm always glad when that's over for the year!

Went out for an early breakfast in Sydney this morning. Sat down at a cafe to the strains of Gimme Some Truth followed immediately by A Day in the Life.

A good omen for the day.
