Had to think about this Credited Review
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.

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.

    Low-concept pieces like this one are quite challenging, since they require great work on character and dialogue as a way to compensate the lack of plot. I am afraid that, so far, this script didn't do a good job in either of those. Marcus is selfish and unlikable, but he lacks a redeeming quality that could compensate such flaws (Llewyn Davis, for example, is infused with humanity... read
