I was at the natural foods market today. They were playing Rufus Wainwright. It was a real dramatic tune. Rufus is belting it out, just pouring his heart and soul into the song in every way. And people are comparing pastas, selecting the reddest apple. It just seemed wrong. I found myself wishing they'd play something innocuous, and that's when it hit me, I Understand Muzak now! Though I think I'd still prefer silence.
