A brief memo to any coffee house still playing the “Garden State” soundtrack on loop: Quit it. Please. You and your kind have been playing that album for over a year now. Yes, Yahoo/Burbank coffee house, I’m talking to you.
Thing is, it isn’t a bad album. I own a copy of it, and I enjoy listening to it from time to time, but whenever I hear it in a coffee house it makes me want to break people’s arms.
So get some new music. How about The Stones? Everybody likes The Stones. Play some Joan Baez if you want to stink of coffee house. I don’t really care, just so long as you give Garden State a rest. (And don’t you dare put Bob Marley’s “Legend” on, because I know that’s what you’re thinking….)
