When you hear a song on this show, chances are, I picked it out, maybe tracked it down on iTunes. There's at least one catchy song about every topic. We're talking about Seahorses Wednesday. There's one really good seahorse song.
But today's show is about bad music in public spaces and I found that, when I looked for the music, my personality started to change. The more I chased bad music down the twisting corridors of iTunes, the more I found even worse music, and after I pushed through my initial wall of resistance, I discovered a kind of sadism lurking inside me.
I don't even know most of the guests on the show, but I suddenly wanted to hurt them with music. Because I could. The power to injure them lay in my hands. I started picking really agonizing songs. I stopped when I found Roger Williams playing "I Honestly Love you," the Olivia Newton John classic. They try you in the Hague for stuff like that.
