Flash forward to tonight. I work in a large data center, and it's quite noisy in there. I work with a group of people, but because it's so hard to hear each other in there, there's not a lot of talking that goes on. Fortunately, we all work well together and each of us knows what the others are doing, so there just isn't a need for a lot of communication. I hate to say we're a well-oiled machine, but things generally go pretty smoothly. Because it's so difficult to communicate in there anyway, most of us wear headphones and listen to music while we're working. Tonight, Paradise came up in my rotation and by the time it finished, I was like "You know, I wouldn't mind hearing that again" so I repeated it. And again. And again after that.
I don't know why, but I must have listened to that song 12 times in a row as I was working. It's a real toe-tapper and it made the first part of the night go by pretty quickly. I caught some of my coworkers looking at me funny as I was walking down the rows, bobbing my head and singing along. It was awesome.
I think I'll listen to it a couple of more times when we get back to work after lunch, then let Google Music get on with whatever else it thinks I should be listening to.
