White Bird at Burger King

Post by neps » Mon Mar 18, 2002 11:33 pm

Now forgive me if this has been covered before, but I've been out of the loop.

I was at Burger King injesting a double heart attack with cheese, when "white bird" came on the musac. Now I thought it was the David Hasselhoff Knight Rider version, but I couldn't be sure. But then I was back in there a few weeks later getting one of those LOTR cups for my girlfriend and it was on again.

Has anyone else had a similar experience in a burger king or anywhere else where they play musac?

Me, at our Burger King here. (It was for the fries, honest!) It suddenly came on over the speakers, and I started giggling. Happily, the person I was with (my sister) knew what I was giggling about, and she made excuses for me.

I couldn't tell if it was the DH version, either.

The Burger King's (or most any other fast food places...OK. So the Greek Chicken place does. Drive by at 3 A.M. and it is there, being pumped out a loud speaker.) around my area do the service of not using any musac.

However, I used to work at a toy store (During the Christmas season. That was a crazy month.) where one of the policies was to play some in-store sound track. And, play over and over and over, it did. (To the point of wanting to do a little micro-cassette surgery on the device.)

It sounds like your local BK's might be doing the same thing...in-house musac from some player, behind-the-scenes.

My guess would be that the White Bird song was the version done by the group "It's A Beautiful Day". I've caught it a few times on the radio over the years. Similarly, Hasslehoff redid the song "Do Your Love Me?" but it's the original version that still gets the replays.

Yeah, because DH's version of "Do You Love Me" doesn't sound too good. Now, I do know that one of our radio stations did play DH's version at one time, because (the DJ's words, not mine!) he thought it was 'crazy cool-like, man!'

But you are probably right, Mike. It's probably the original version.

I was in a pub the other day and heard "Don't Stop" by Fleetwood Mac. Its from the pilot when the police are chasing MK coz they think he's asleep.

I was at a friend's wedding and the DJ played the Knight Rider theme as the groom went down to slip off his bride's garter. It really fit in well.
