I've seen things you wouldn't believe...

...or in this case, heard.

Last week in an otherwise excellent greek restaurant on 7th Avenue in New York, a few blocks up from Times Square, the background music playing was Vangelis' excellent Bladerunner soundtrack...

...on traditional greek instruments.

That's definitely right up there with "Rocky Top" arranged for mariachi, and likewise both "Rocky Top" and "Happy Birthday" on bagpipe. On the other hand, "Scotland the Brave" arranged for bluegrass is pretty darned cool.

A friend of mine was shopping in a California supermarket when he noticed that the muzak system was playing the medication time music from "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".

He got out of there sharpish.
