A Message To Safeway And All Of Jordan’s Major Supermarkets

…I would highly appreciate it if you would, for the love of God, discard of that CD, which plays the flute versions of Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” and Bryan Adams “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman”. It’s been playing on your store speakers for the past decade and it’s gotten to the point where a visit to your place of business is akin to running out of a burning building.

And just in case you didn’t know, the world has in fact created more music since the 1990’s.


  • Lucky you! I keep hearing Hello (by Lionel Richie) everywhere I go 😀
    Maybe it’s a policy, so you concentrate on the music not on what you are buying.

  • Cause I’m your ladddddddddddddyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy……………
    Please forgive meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh………..
    Killing me softly……………


  • You should shop at the Irbid Safeway……the Staind CD stays on repeat there if you do your shopping in the evening. It’s all good until the music booth guy decides to sing along to that “I’m on the outside” song at the top of his lungs. He doesn’t even wait until the song completey finishes before he hits repeat.

  • Must be a sneaky way by them to promote for iPods and other MP3 stuff in there 🙂
    whats wrong with some heavy metal! j/k

  • Some propane gas sellers I heard now reverted back to Lambada (wasn’t that the tune before the honking?)…in any case…yay
    I wonder what would happen if trucks blaring lambada were crisscrossing Paris or Rome

  • if u shop at the mu2asaseh they play aghani wataniyeh .. and they have monitors that show patriotic images kaman .. sot w soora 😀

  • hahahah. I was just thinking exactly the same.
    Yesterday I went to the safeway and the first thing I did was put on my headphones. people were giving me weird look at the alien stares all the time, but I was just smiling and listening to my own music.

  • How about “down and nasty” punk and hip hop full of the f-word while pre-teen girls and their mothers shopped for accessories during Ramadan at Claires in City Mall!
    I also cannot hear any of the classical music pieces on the Cosmo market tape anymore without cringing. The Flight of the Valkyrie while trying to get served at the butcher’s counter…
    Who chooses the music? Some evil elf with a twisted sense of humor?
