Shopping with song

Desperately out of milk, I had to run to the store today with barely a menu in mind. I was in the produce section and was hearing some song like "Crazy for You" playing and I understand that they have to have benign music that would please a large artist, but some of the songs just kill me slowly. They kind of make me want to get out of the store even more quickly - not their intended use, I know. But then, halfway down the cereal/peanut butter aisle, this song came on and all was well with the world. This song or "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon always play at some point whenever I shop at the grocery store. I wonder if the world is trying to tell me something. What is your shopping anthem?

My grocery store anthem is "Lost in the Supermarket" by the Clash. Story of my life.
PS: I love Carly Simon.

PPS: I could shop all day to "Pina Coladas" - especially if I had a pina colada to sip on.

i don't have a shopping anthem, but these two songs made me start singing "I Will Survive." I love that along with these two. Good choices! JJN
