Muzak, I finally get it...

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.

They pump Muzak on K street even outside the mall area and thats its so wrong.
And you have to wonder what kind of deal did Muzak make with the city to be able to blast that on crap on a public street.Try and have real music playing from your house so that the people on the street can here it and you get a visit from Sac PD!
what's with that?
