If Tallia Storm was not blasting Thriller from a speaker in her handbag then she really missed out on an opportunity. That would probably be the one time when everyone around you would think it is acceptable to make them hear your music. It might actually cause the world’s first authentic flash mob. Imagine living in a world where everyone spontaneously started doing the same choreographed dance routine. It would be like living in a teen movie.
There is probably no better song to try it with than Thriller. It is like the one song in the world that everyone is almost guaranteed to know. Well, Thriller and God Bless America for damn good reasons.
Unfortunately, it is rare that anyone playing music from a speaker in public ever actually plays music that most people probably like. It is never Michael Jackson or The Beatles. It almost always is the most obscure and abrasive music that has ever been recorded, like they are trying to impress everyone with their eclectic tastes. I’m sorry, dude, but I do not want to hear your Mongolian throat singing. There is a time and place for that, and the train is not it.
