Heard a song on the playlist today I know I've heard outside of work before, but I can't place it. Not a new song. Faster tempo, man singing, melody consisting of mostly one note (a G). I couldn't discern any lyrics cause of all the noise in the store. This is probably too vague, but does anyone know which song I'm trying to describe?

Is Christmas is here again (or whatever it's actually called) the I feel love of this Christmas season? I heard it at least twice per shift tonight, in 5 hours, and I know I've heard it at least every shift the past week or two.

I feel like I've been hearing all of the Christmas songs way too much already. Some of them definitely multiple times a shift. But it doesn't help that half of them sound exactly the same, they all sound big band-ish with a female singer.

But that song where the lady in a very high pitched voice is singing about candy canes is by far the worst.

Best part about only being scheduled for Service Desk or Drive-Up is that for 90% of the time, I never have to hear the store radio at all. We actually have a smart speaker in our OPU hold area too, so whatever's on the speakers hasn't gotten stuck in my head for awhile.

I haven't heard a single Christmas song yet. Do they have different playlists for different regions? We have a large Jewish population here and maybe they didn't want the Christmas music to clash while Hanukkah was still going on lol

IDK, but I know that, at least at my store, the playlist os a mix if the standard Target playlist and Christmas songs. It's not all one or the other.

From what i heard from my pml, there's about 15 playlists from corporate with different vibes.
So one with more country one with less etc.

Not only have they completely revamped the playlist at my store (for the better IMO), but they have crossfading now. The songs kinda blend into each other.

It's been like that at my store for a while. It's very odd on songs without outros, as sometimes the last couple of words will get cut off.

Never heard of any of the above but I'm considerably older than y'all. Music in the restroom is a nice distraction. No need to go into detail.

You've heard of Laura Branigan, come on now Captain! Katy Perry too, I'd wager.

I've heard of 13 of the artists and three of the songs, so I'm not doing much better than you, lol.
