Hey Kid

Ridiculous stereo panning alert

I was in Whole Foods the other day and they played this song:

And all I could think was What is it about stuttering rhythms, absurd stereo panning of individual bleats, bass lines that go nowhere, and nonsensical lyrics about teenage longing delivered in an overly dramatic (but not quite melodramatic) style that desperately makes me want to buy overpriced artisanal cheeses?

Where do we go from here? Which is the way that's clear?

Who knows? But we do what we must.

Which, apparently, is rocking on.

You totally overlook the power of David Essex's large blue eyes and starry eyelashes to draw in the female shopper. I for one am devastatingly susceptible to such charms!

Now I'm in the mood for some Manchego and perhaps just a wee sliver of Wensleydale.

Alex said...

Good point Holly. But do you get the same effect just hearing the song without the visuals?

Perplexio, dang! Now I gotta get me some Manchego! And maybe a nice Brillat Savarin...
