There are times when the muzak playing overhead at work is literally painful. I am sure that there are people actually researching different musical genres to see if they inspire people to buy buy BUY!

There was a time I was working an opening shift and the song playing, a guy scream scat singing about summer, was unbearable. I paged through the overhead speakers begging the manager to change the muzak station. …In the deep dark nights, the nights where sleep is frustratingly elusive, that song sometimes bubbles up from some dark wrinkled area of my memory and haunts me.
