I heard "Rock and Roll" by the Velvet Underground when I got my coffee from Starbucks today. I've heard that song so many times that I usually skip it when I'm listening at home or on my headphones. But then it comes on at a Starbucks, and it sounds like the best thing I've ever heard. Say what you will about Starbucks, but they make a strong cup of coffee, and they play VU for the masses. Didn't Brian Eno once say that everyone who bought a VU record opened up a coffee shop?
