Worse than Christmas music has to be the store muzak. You know the stuff. Horrible, aspartame-sweet, vomit-inducing pan-piped nightmares.. They take an annoying Christmas song that is annoying, but tolerable, in its usual state. Then they basically shove it through a music mangle and destroy it. It comes out the other end sounding even worse than (is it possible??) "My Heart Will Go On".
And they play this stuff in every shop, every shopping centre and even outside at the Christmas Market in Nottingham on a Saturday. I am never setting foot out my house on a Saturday before Christmas. Not ever again.
So yeah, muzak. Go die. Or I will.
