I’ve been listening to Capital FM all day today. (It’s the big “Top 40” station in London.) They’ve been pretty good about giving news updates. It’s their playlist that I’m having a problem with. They claim that they’re taking requests and only playing stuff that fits the listeners’ mood right now. So far I’ve heard Gabrielle about fourteen times (nothing out of the ordinary there), Michael Jackson’s “You Are Not Alone”, and that “You’re Makin’ it Hard For Me” song that was big in the States, like, five years ago (the one my mom calls “That Erection Song”.) What the hell? I hope to God that’s not the prevailing mood in the capital right now. They did just play “Everybody Hurts” though, and the DJ said it was the most requested song of the day. I suppose the others can just be attributed to weird people calling in.
