Context. We’re at my parents in Southport for the weekend right now. We went out for a drink in a local bar. Shelves full of ale, German/Belgian lager. Trendy but also old-man ish. Young bar staff. Nice bar.
We’re having a drink and a pissed but friendly regular hands us a tablet. He says here the customers pick the songs, anything goes, go for it, 2 songs each, add them to the playlist or just play next if you want.
Like a rabbit in headlights I go for a couple of well known songs on my phone recently played: Beastie Boys Sabotage and Road to Nowhere Talking Heads. My wife goes Tenacious D Tribute but then a bit leftfield with St Vincent and Pills.
Afterwards the guy says obscure choices go down well and I instantly want to change my choices, despite his enthusiasm when they come on.
What do you choose?
