Ramones at the Grocery Store
Ok I'm at the grocery store today and I realize the music being piped in is the Ramones. How weird is that? What's even more weird, is the mix of music that it was in, the next song was some mushy crappy pop ballad. And let me clarify this wasn't Muzak which would also be very strange, but the Ramones doing their version of Blitzkrieg Bop. In the Giant Food store. I remember back in the late seventies/early eighties I was dying to hear the Ramones on the radio on a station like DC 101 or 98 Rock, and there was NO WAY they were going to play it. Now I'm walking around in the grocery store hearing it. Is this good or bad? I can't really make up my mind. Just know it's weird.
