Starbucks and Music

starbucks_coffee_logo_svg1Today is FRIDAY!!!!  WOO HOO!!!

It is finally feeling like fall around here so I decided to stop by my favorite Starbucks establishment this morning to pick up a tall White Chocolate Mocha and a Blueberry Muffin.  I drive up to place my order and suddenly I here it…the guy on the other end begins singing.  That’s right…he was singing.  He just didn’t say “Good morning…blah blah…”, he sang.  I have to say it give me a little chuckle.  As I go around to purchase said coffee and muffin, I nearly drive past the window.  This is definitely a sign I needed my coffee.  I was expecting Singing Starbucks Guy, but instead got an even chippy Starbucks employee.  She proceeded to laugh at the fact that I almost drove away without my coffee.  I just told I was planning to pay for it today and come back tomorrow to get my order.  This made her laugh.  I don’t if it’s in the Starbucks employee handbook or not, but some of them might want to kick it back on drinking the product! 

When I am not listening to Sirius NASCAR radio in the monrings on the way to work, I usually put in one of my many CDs I have stashed in the car.  This morning I wanted something kind of peppy instead of the sad, pitiful, feeling sorry for mysefl tunes that I have had in the last couple of days.  So I pop in one of those mixed CDs I so loving created off my itunes.  Here is a list of the tunes that I had blaring from the CD player

  • Hollaback Girl
  • Love Machine
  • Another Brick in the Wall
  • Rubberband Man
  • Chasing Cars
  • I Like to Move It-from Madacasgar movie
  • London Bridge-not the kids version
  • Brickhouse
  • Broken-song from Broken Bridges-movie shown on CMT
  • I Will Survive
  • Genie in a Bottle
  • Panama
  • My Humps
  • Crazy-Gnarls Barkley
  • Hit Me Baby One More Time–yes, I have a Brittany Spears song on the CD–I like the song.
  • Tearin Up My Heart
  • Greatest American Hero theme

I realized that is DEFINTELY an eclectic mix of music, but I guess that’s the way I am with my taste in music.  duck-tgifI try not pigeon hole myself to one genre of music.  I tend to lean towards 80s rock and country, but I have other likes as well.  Some times for me it is about the song, not the genre.  If you perused my ipod right now you would find everything from Barry Manilow to Def Lepard to Twisted Sister to Tony Bennett.  So, crank up that CD player, satellite radio or ipod and HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY!!!!!
