Muzak

In my experience, they do not play Secret Agent Man in the halls of the CIA, Every Breath You Take at the NSA, or Neutron Dance at Los Alamos.

    I was at a conference with almost all female federal and state government officials the other day, and they had Frank Sinatra playing “That’s Why the Lady is a Tramp” playing on repeat in the hallways.

    Just how extensive is your experience of the muzak at the NSA?

    Never say the government doesn’t listen to us.

    They must not have let you into the extra secret part where they do play the cool tunes.

  5. SonOfRekab says:

    So what Do they play at los alamos, purple rain?

  6. Did the intelligence agencies play “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell?

  7. I don’t remember them playing anything in the halls at the CIA.

    I understand that in the halls of Her Majesty’s Revenues and Customs they play Mr George Harrison’s “Taxman”.

    Let me tell you how it will be
    There’s one for you, nineteen for me
    Cos I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

    Should five per cent appear too small
    Be thankful I don’t take it all
    Cos I’m the taxman, yeah I’m the taxman

  9. Mention not rope in the house of one whose father was hanged.

  10. Funny you should mention it just now, but just last night I was in the Circus Circus casino in Reno, Nevada (a long story). No, I didn’t shoot anyone just to watch him die. But yes – I swear I’m not making this up – they were playing “House of the Rising Sun,” the version by The Animals, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRXb7K7k7bQ

      Which I heard live when they honoured a contract to play at our student Charity Ball. Not only that but the keyboard player, Alan Price, stayed behind when the others left, and entertained us for another hour or so in our common room, playing and singing Blues while we bought him the odd pint. Good bloke, and very musicianly. It was a memorable evening/small hours.

    “Take My Breath Away” at Gitmo Bay

    “Learn to Fly” on MH17 Malaysia Airlines (could also go with “It’s Raining Men” or “Let the Bodies hit the Floor”)

    “I Like Little Girls” at No. 10 Downing St

    Which “Secret Agent Man” don’t they play, the original version or the Devo version?

  13. AllenM says:

    LOL= they should play this fine now oldie:

    We should outsource our “intelligence” services to the scandal sheets, they do a pretty good job of finding out anything worthwhile.

    Like what Putin said about his sleeping habits.

    It is all over when Alphabet buys Level 3 and Triple Canopy.

  14. Roma in the Glaucoma says:

    And they don’t play…

    Anything by Humble Pie in the Cochran household.
    Metallica’s “For Whom the Bell Tolls” at the NAACP or La Raza.
    Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” at AIPAC.
    George Harrison’s “The Inner Light” at Unit 8200.

    We still play the Jaws theme for law office “on hold” music.

    Perhaps they play Secret Asian Man in China.
