Blondie as Muzak

OK, so last night at work, I'm on hold and suddenly I realize they've done away with the jazz music (and by jazz I mean good jazz, not this smooth jazz crap) they were using for the hold music and have replaced it with Muzak. And it's really too bad, because I found a lot of good songs through being on hold at work. But anyway, last night, I'm on hold and I hear a familiar guitar intro and suddenly, I'm listening to the Muzak version of Blondie's "Maria." And it pretty much boiled down to a lounge version of the song--what sounded like a guy at a piano plinking out the melody while a rhythm section played behind him.

I had to come home and listen to the original to get the bad taste out of my mouth.
