TV Musics

this internet cafe i've been hanging out in

there's this huge widescreen TV
and all sorts of people
through the time i sit here
come in and plop down and watch it

it's usually on the news channel

so it's
news news news
and commercials

something about dick cheney rapping
and other crap

i'm alright with ignoring it
at the angle i sit
i can't see the screen

but what has been pulling my attention
is clips of music.

some (insurance?) company is using a bit of The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights"
talking all corporate crap

some animal shelter
using Sarah McLachlan's song about an angel

some other company using DNTEL's "Last Song's" (totally random, that's what first caught me)

and to top it all
the news group here is using the dark guitar shift from Radiohead's "Paranoid Android" as there "coming back to the news" jingle.

is it just Hawaii that's doing this?
