Just now I was in the bathroom and, over the Muzak system that's incessantly pumped into our psyches here at work, I heard the Muzak version of "Until I Hear It From You" by the Gin Blossoms. And I started wondering to myself, aren't the Muzak people getting a little brazen and brave? Crossing into the DMZ and violating some sort of international order? That song is not soft, not old, and this Muzak version sounds almost exactly like the real thing.
Then I did some research and discovered that the song was first released on the Empire Records soundtrack. In 1995. And that almost qualifies it for Muzak under the TEN YEAR RULE. THE YEAR OF OUR LORD NINETEEN HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE IS ALMOST TEN YEARS AGO. "Until I Hear It From You" is TEN YEARS OLD.
F*ck, I'm old.
