Corporate Choruses

Although my caffeine tolerance is as low as a newborn, I’ve decided to put my health in jeopardy and tweak out like a meth addict for the sake of cafe-music awareness. So, now that I’ve gotten my scone on at CTB and decided that I couldn’t stand their Disnasty pop hits, I moseyed down the street to the place where the yuppies get their drink on (or so the “protester” with the “go to CTB” sign says). 20 minutes of Starbucks music — on your mark — get set — GO!

2:03 James Brown “Try Me”
2:08 James Brown “I’ll Go Crazy”
2:10 James Brown “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag, Pt. 2”
2:12 James Brown “Please Please Please”
2:20 James Brown “It’s a Man’s World”

Honestly, corporate Starbucks has some people with good taste picking out their music. I make no such claims about the quality of their coffee, but I have total respect for James Brown.
