My Favorite Song Off The Album

I’m behind the bar with my fellow bartender Johnny. I’ve known him for about 12 years. He was the first bartender I ever worked with. Guy probably knows me better than my wife. 

I usually delegate the music playing to him for the night. He gets into making playlists. He has really good taste in music. Better than mine. Maybe I’m too old to make a playlist. Who knows?

He plays a few of the songs the same on multiple playlists. Blondie, Depeche Mode is a new favorite for him. 

And the latest Spoon record. 

It all started about seven weeks ago. The song Do You? by Spoon was playing on his playlist, and I said, 

I really like this song. It’s probably my favorite track off the album. 

The next week comes, we’re working together, the song Do You? by Spoon comes on, I say,

I really like this song. It’s my favorite track off the album. 

The next week comes, my fellow bartender is playing his iPod. The song Do You? comes on, I turn to him, say,

I really like this song. It’s my favorite song off the album. 

The next week comes, I’m bartending with Johnny, the song Do You? comes on, I say, 

Hey Johnny. I really like this song. It’s my favorite song off the album. 

The next week comes, and I’m on vacation. 

The week after that, I’m working with John again, the song Do You? by Spoon comes on, I turn to Johnny, say,

This is my favorite song. It’s probably my favorite song off the record. 

Last night, it’s Thursday, it’s Pint Night, I’m not working with Johnny. But he’s left his iPod behind from the night before. I hit one of his playlists randomly. 

About an hour in, it’s pretty slow. The song Do You? by Spoon comes on. I go to my phone, text Johnny. 

The song Do You? is playing right now on your iPod. It’s my favorite song off the album. 

I look later at my phone…

He didn’t respond.
