It was none other than Wendy's where I chose to have lunch when my bubble was burst. Half way through my sandwich (apparently you can't triple stack a double stack), I noticed The Easybeats' "Friday On My Mind" playing over the restaurant's speakers. I was somewhat saddened to learn that what I thought was a chance happening last week was really just a case of two eateries subscribing to the same outsourced music package. But this does give me an opportunity to let you in on a little known fact about myself, as I have carried a picture of Dave Thomas in my wallet for over 6 years (true story), partly due to the fact that it was right around the same time that I realized Col. Sanders was an actual human. All is not sad, however, as I am still glad I have discovered this somewhat forgotten gem, and it did influence the creation of Shazam and Abracadabra.
Also this whole situation gives me an excuse to share this classic piece of audio I've been laughing at for years in which an elderly Col. Sanders for the life of him simply cannot get through a KFC radio spot. Hopefully one of you producers out there can make a dance remix of this for me, it would make my week.
