I fall down

so I was at Starbucks today and started to hear a song that sounded familiar and then smack! no way! I Fall Down. Does anyone else think this is odd that they were playing I Fall Down at Starbucks? Is this disturbing to others?

I was standing in line at Starbucks last week listening to music overhead thinking to myself, "Gee, this piano part sure sounds familiar." When Bono's voice came in I admit I was was surprised and, yes, a bit disturbed. Must be on the CD they send out for every store to play.

Edited to add: Almost as weird as the time I was wandering through Home Depot when Kite came on.

I Fall Down? Wow, that's not one I'd expect to hear.

I was at Restoration Hardware once and they played their cover of "Everlasting Love."

It struck me as weird at the time.

Yeah, I remember being at a Meijer (kind of like a wal-mart) when Kite came on. It was especially weird cos it was only Dec. 2000, only a few months after ATYCLB came out.

I was skiing at Mt. Snow in early 2001, (Jan or Feb) and they were playing Kite down at the bottom of the liftlines...really, really, really loud.

also, a week after that I was buying shoes at a shoestore, and they were playing In a little while.

About 2 months ago at the local Starbucks they played 'Twilight' which, like your hearing 'I Fall Down,' really surprised me. I heard it again at that Starbucks a few days later. Would Starbucks actually let employees bring in their own CD's? I wouldn't think so.

I was at a demolition derby once, and the whole ATYCLB was played before the derby started. I thought that was kind of weird.



Oh, and AvsGirl, your sig is hypnotizing.

Thanks!! Isn't it though!

I snagged it from PLEBA, I don't know who made it. I guess no one minds that I'm using it.

I was in a restaurant in December and Two Hearts Beat As One came on. That was pretty random.

At my school the technician guy played ATYCLB one morning while he was setting up the tech stuff for assembly, so, pleasantly surprised to hear that upon arriving at school, I went in and listened ...

I was in the garden department at Home Depot and they were playing "Elevation"...I didn't need anything but I stayed until the end of the song. Also once my mother and I were trying on clothes at some store, and "The Sweetest Thing" came on, I started singing along, my mother thought I lost it.
I love it when I hear the boys in a store...

When my mom and I were on vacation we were walking by a house under renovation and The Sweetest Thing came on. The builders tried (unsuccessfully) to sing the falsetto parts at the beginning.

I do that too. But then I feel guilty for not buying anything and spending so long in the shop ... oh, well, it's worth it for U2!

I was driving home at about 3 in the morning and I heard "When I look at the World" on the radio. That freaked me out a bit, starnge selection.

Sounds like something that would have fit perfectly on the Sweetest Thing video.

I've heard IALW at Sears, and during a trip I made on a cruise ship they played ATYCLB songs all the time, and even a couple from R&H.

Yes, and I put a U2 CD on earlier, and of all the strange, weird, unexpected things that could've been on it, there were U2 songs. I was so shocked, I nearly fell off my seat. Since when were U2 songs on U2 CDs? It's just unheard of. The stupid people at the music store must've given me a dodgy CD ...
