The story has the feel of a blog and as such gives the impression that it's a quick note to self,about nothing much in particular - in this case an annoying song on the radio.
I read it three times, put the story down and went for a coffee. It was then I realised what the author was getting at here - the hatred of something, the prejudice against a benign topic, saying more about the listener than the tune. It's a refreshing way to put the topic across but if it were my story I would have injected some friction along the way. Some consequence of the hatred rather than just changing the tune, but that may just be me.
'A new pair of glasses for my ears', indeed, nice one Andy.

He lived in Chicago in the late nineteenth century; killed many—in every imaginable way. I’ve seen a couple of documentaries on this evil beast and I also remember that he hit his stride during the ‘World’s Fair’. I liked your opening with Holms as a young boy in New Hampshire;... read
A review of MAJOR PLAYERSby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 05/29/2014There’s a lot to like here. I cared about Ray Ray and liked the script as a whole. He wants to leave the past behind after a stretch in prison and resume his boxing career. He gets caught up in the life once again with his cousin Vince. In this life, Ray Ray pursues Heaven. He has to fight for her love and respect. Naturally, she’s out of his league; on her way up to become... read
