Surrealistic Hold

Trying to make a doctor appointment, I am on hold, and what music comes piping in? It is Led Zeppelin doing Whole Lotta Love, not some muzaked version (I had an elevator experience with a Muzakized Stairway to Heaven).

Yup, Dr G’s office phone is rockin’:

You need coolin’, baby, I’m not foolin’,
I’m gonna send you back to schoolin’,
Way down inside honey, you need it,

It hardly fits the waiting room experience at the office.

I am 1000% sure if you call my office and get put on hold, it won’t be Led Zep and it will be mind numbingly soothing.

Nov 30, 2005 Update: On a later call, it was the 16 minute version of “Heard it Through the Grapevine” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. I heard almost the whole trippy song.
