On the way home from New York City this weekend, we stopped in Binghamton [small college town in New York near the Pennsylvania border for those interested] for dinner at a Quizno's. Side note - Binghamton might not have much going for it, but it does have a building that shares a Quizno's, a Coldstone and a Starbucks. If I managed that 'Bux, I'd weight a million pounds because I'd have Coldstone each and every damn day. Anyways...
So we're enjoying our lunch in the Quizno's when this comes on the radio:
I had to pause and really let it sink in - no, this wasn't my imagination, Technotronic's 'Get Up' really was on the radio. I was rightfully horrified as one would be - Technotronic in 2008? Really? - however, I was also fascinated. Yes, it's a piece of crap, but it actually sounded pretty good. In such a wrong way, of course, but my repulsion was mixed with a bit of joy. I didn't realize people still played Technotronic in this day and age but at that moment I was kind of glad they did. It almost made me wish I had "Pump Up The Jam - The Album" on my iPod to put on when I got in the car....almost. I'll have to check at my parents house, but I'm pretty sure I sold my copy years ago...it was one of the first CDs I owned, you know.
So yes, let this be a lesson to you - Technotronic is still out there on the radio. Who knew?
