I have a friend who is a contractor and he found himself working often with another contractor who is a bit of a music snob. And, as music snobs are wont to do, this music snob liked to fill the work day with interesting music. After a while of working together, my contractor friend felt he had to lay down the law with regard to music. “You can play anything you want to play,” he told the music snob, “with one exception. You can’t play Can.”
I can understand where he was coming from, because whenever I listen to Can while working, my thinking goes dark and jumbled, and all work grinds to a halt. Whatever Can’s music is, it ain’t background music.
Below, two faves.
