Music Power


Every time I've been in the Orangery (the fancy name for one of the Cafés on campus) recently, they've been playing Blondie as the background music. Today, I finally asked why. Apparently, it's because they have a number of CDs they play and because of the timing it's always the Blondie one that's on when I come in between 10am and 10:30am.

I was told this by one of the baristas, then another one said "I put it on randomise this morning". Sure enough, at that very moment the Blondie track finished and some track by some other group came on.

It seems I have the power to change muzak merely by querying why it's always the same.
