What becomes of a person who listens to "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted" while waiting on hold too long?

I have visions of many things ... I can't stand this pain much longer ... Cold and alone/No comfort in sight/Hoping and praying for someone to care...

If it's sung by Joan Osborneand the Funk Brothers, it will bring tears to your eyes! First time I heard it the hair on my neck stood up! Beautiful!

Well, whatever the hell version I was listening to sounded like utter crapola.

Isn't that what they were using in Gitmo to break the prisoners?

Ron said...

Ann: was it Muzak? Is there a Muzak version of anything that isn't crapola?

Ann Althouse said...

No, it was some irritating man bellyaching about his heart into my ear while I was trying to make an appointment about my teeth.

They become a Liberal.
Sorry Ann.

Ann: Maybe there's some connection there; if you think the music is bad enough, you'll stop thinking about how much your teeth hurt!

Wasn't there a comments section going somewhere, where readers were voting for their favorite nostalgia song? Head On, by Jesus and Mary Chain. They should put you on hold with that kind of a song, played LOUD.
