Whaddya say?

I think Stairway to Heaven is a great song but it's the worst one to play in a store.

I ain't been in a music store in ages, so I guess th' same is still goin' on which probably explains this article. I must admit I've never heard "Blackbird" or "Message in a Bottle" in a music store, but I'm sure they've been tried somewhere.

Know what? I never heard the beginning (and end) of "Roundabout" by Yes in a store! That'll give 'em something to figure out.

I heard "Frankenstein" by th' Edgar Winter Group in a store! A poor rendition at that. 

Hey, how 'bout you guys name some tunes you've heard in a store. Let's see what comes up! Did they suck or..........y'know!

I remember the Beatles music always being played in the music store.
