Ahhhh...Anyone hungry for Northwest Cherries? Oh, and when buying pears, make sure you "check the neck"!

 I love Mayhem. And it's so appropriate for Kroger!

 

My craving for cherries is completely blocked by my craving for gobbu gobbus--I mean, avocados--from Mexico.

Apparently, I can add more fiesta to my life by adding tobasco sauce to one cut in half. Who knew?

I admit, I had not realized that Cinco de Mayo was the official start of summer here in the U.S. of A. Silly me, I always thought it had something to do with the Summer Equinox (June 21 this year). But then, I always remember the Alamo, too, and wasn't there something about San Jacinto day? Shouldn't those of us in Texas recognize that, too? (We just missed it; it's 21 April. No mention of it by In Store Propaganda Network.)

Summer Solstice.  Equinox means equal night.  There's the Vernal Equinox and the Autumnal Equinox.

 Dammit, of course you are right, and I do know better. Thanks for noticing.

Sheesh, the fact that I got the date right meant that I had searched for "solstice", and somehow typed "equinox" in the post. I don't suppose I could claim I just got my fingers wrong on the keyboard, huh?

Newer (current) music been in the rotation at our store:

CLOSER - THE CHAINSMOKERS

MAMA SAID - LUKAS GRAHAM 

TREAT YOU BETTER - SHAWN MENDES 

HEART ATTACK - DEMI LOVATO 

WHERE IS THE LOVE? - BLACK EYED PEAS 

 


The store I'm at in Indiana plays a lot of remixes I think. I've heard a remix of songs like,

Shawn Mendes - Treat You Better : this is the closest one I could find: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUeoXcGEiDA

Maroon 5 - Don't Wanna Know : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxPv8mSTv9U

Do you happen to know any more? There is one electronic song with not much lyrics that I cannot find. I think there is both a male and female singer, but I cannot make sense of the lyrics(I think the singing is distorted like most electronic songs). The song is electronic though, and I think it is a newer song. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm......... cannot find it.

OK, guys...To make it an EVEN 200, I have 50 more wonderful earworms for you...A "Part Five", if you will...I have to say that although I appreciate the newer songs and variety, there is nothing quite as utterly PATHETIC (Yes, PA-THET-IC!) as The In-Store Audio Network when it comes to obscurity and repetition, even within the same hour...Believe me, in the old days, to get a song played on the radio, there would be huge amounts of testing involved...If a song didn't pass muster with a focus group or sample of listeners, it wouldn't get played...If even an AVERAGE radio station played songs THIS obscure, they would be out of business within a week...But OH, somehow, through it all, our beloved In-Store Audio Network does not seem to care about that...Never mind that in this day and age of the Internet and I-Tunes, there are literally MILLIONS if not BILLIONS of songs out there worth hearing that no one will ever know about...Sad, ain't it? Even if they had a greater mix of past and present playlists, I wouldn't mind, but in any case, here are FIFTY more from the standard playlist that you have probably heard at least ONCE this week, if not more often...ENJOY!biggrin

I tune out most of them, but there are about 30 I like a lot. I just put them in a YouTube playlist called "Best Songs Heard At Kroger".

My brother's a Pink Floyd fan (we both work at a Kroger store), and one song that plays at my Kroger Store is this extremely short spacey-style slide guitar song that sounds like it's from David Gilmour. It's entirely instrumental and the song length can't be more than 1:30. It seems so out of place among the other In-Store Audio Network songs (which is saying something). Would you know what that is?

Having a hard time identifying this song with a girl singer: Sun shines all day, Maybe we only have today, Come with me away, Maybe we'll take a train, Don't come a moment too late, It'll never be the same. Search engines do nothing with any of these lines. Does anyone just happen to now what it is?

Please help, I have been trying to figure out this Rock song at my Kroger but just can't since i can barely understand the lyrics the only way i recognize the song each time is because of the beautiful guitar intro that resembles Trans Siberian Orchestra- Carol of the Bells but the song is obviously not a Christmas song, it sounds like a bittersweet mournful song...i thought it was Metallica or Nirvana but i checked youtube for all their songs and struck out :(

 

Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

I despise the In-Store Audio Network.

 

Most of the newer, obscure songs sound very much the same to me, especially since most of them are "cheating" by using the Auto-Tune software (because song producers no longer hold modern singers to a high standard of being perfectly, if not "reasonably" in-tune when recording their songs), as was expected by the talented musical artists of years gone by. 

Not sure if our store playlist is anything like what is playing in other stores, but when you are somewhat farther away from a speaker (and the sound system in this store is horrible, tinny, bad in the first place) what you can hear loudest in most of the songs is something that is either a faintly wailing, moaning, whining, screaming or shrieking noise from a so-called "hot" "singer".  

 

One of my pet peeves...............basically, very few of the older, classic easy listening/pop/soft rock/adult contemporary songs (esp from the 1970s) are "allowed" on the Kroger playlist ...............so the playlist will include one token song from Olivia Newton John (Please, Mr. Please), Two token songs from Helen Reddy (Angie Baby and You and Me Against the World), one or two songs from Stevie Wonder, very little (or nothing) is played from great artists like Carpenters, Foreigner, Stylistics, Gordon Lightfoot, Glen Campbell, Bread, John Denver, B. J. Thomas,  Maxine Nightingale,  Elvis Presley,  ABBA,  Barbra Streisand, Paul Anka, Neil Sedaka,  Carly Simon (one song-You're so vain),  Nilsson, Roberta Flack,  Lobo, Simon & Garfunkel,  Eagles, Chic, Commodores, REO SPeedwagon, Queen,  Air Supply,  Spinners,  Blue Magic,  John Mellencamp,  Willie nelson, Journey, KC & the Sunshine band, Fleetwood Mac (maybe a song or two),  Bee Gees,  Mariah Carey,  Neil Diamond,  Kenny Rogers,  Whitney Houston(well, maybe one song), Elton John (with the exception of a couple of his crappier songs like Island Girl, about a prostitute). the list goes on and on ................

Have the Kroger company hotshots realized there is a whole wide world of choices out there when playing music for their stores?  Ever heard of Pandora?  I-Heart Radio?  I guess Kroger can't 'afford' anything better than I S A N  for their customers.

 I agree with you on ALL of that, Kroger Pee-On...They COULD do a much better job...And promote more artist diversity at the same time! I'd hate to be the poor saps who work for ISAN, as they have no clue what people want to hear, which is why you hear the same 20 songs every hour...That just shows how (un)creative they can be...In my store, they DID play "Merry Christmas Darling" during the Christmas season and previously "Poems, Prayers & Promises" and "Fly Away" from John Denver, "Lead Me On" from Maxine Nightingale, "How Long" from The Eagles (which I still hear on occasion) and that's about it...You might hear Christopher Cross or Elton John's "I'm Still Standing" on occasion, or that one song from Huey Lewis & The News...There are plenty of old AND new songs they could be playing like stores used to do in the old days...In this day and age, you would think they could utilize better technology, so as to NOT be so repetitious! I hear the same playlist in other stores, too, that they play in Kroger...The EXACT SAME SONGS! And yet, there are places you can go to where you never hear the same song twice...For what the nutjobs at ISAN are doing, THERE IS NO EXCUSE!!!no

Who knows the lyrics to the Kroger song? It sounds like: Let's go Krogering, Krogering, Krogering. Let's go Krogering, a better way to shop! (Most cuts of meat? Sweet values in every aisle?) With Kroger plus card, the saving's (great?) (Savings with a smile?) LGKKK, LGK, a better way to shop.

 Is it really necessary for you to post the same thing in two almost identical threads?

And I just heard THIS one THREE times just today alone!

Good job, In-Store Audio Network...NOT!bleh

Do they not know that even the GOOD songs risk becoming mediocre when overplayed???

I almost think things were a bit better when all they had was Kroger Radio...

There's a song at Kroger I've been trying to identify for the past couple years but haven't had much luck.

It's a slower song with electric guitars/synthesizers sung by a woman and the main refrain sounds like either "I reach, but I can't grasp" or "I itch, but I can't scratch". I try to make out the other lyrics but she's singing so softly compared to the music..

Here are three songs that the In-Store Audio Network plays EVERY SINGLE STINKIN' DAY, at least once (maybe several times) at my store. It is played in our obigatory "mix" of rock and 80s/90s pop that is forced down our throats every day. For years and years.........  

If you are not real close to a speaker, but can hear it vaguely in the background, the only verses you can hear relatively clearly are "Always something there to remind me" repeated over and over and over........"Set the night to music" over and over and over and over....... and "Can you hear me running" over and over and over and over.............until I am about to start smashing glass bottles as a form of release of my anger, frustration and  resentment at being forced to hear them a thousand times.......... 

 

Doing a little research, they are: 

Always something there to remind me, by Naked Eyes (1983)

 

Set the night to music, by Roberta Flack (1991) 

 

Silent Running,  by Mike & the Mechanics (1985)

I worked for Kroger back in the early 1990s in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Back then... the music and in-store ads/jingles were delivered via c-band satellite by POP Radio Corp. (The In-Store Broadcasting Network). The music played in the same order every 2 -3 hours (in a 3 week rotation) with ads and a jingle every 15 minutes ('You're listening to the In-Store Broadcasting Network", "You're listening to Kroger Radio... part of the In-Store Broadcasting Network", "Kroger Radio-o-o", "P-O-P Radio-o-o", "The In-Store Broadcasting Network... The Only Radio-o-o", etc.). Some of the songs on the rotation back then were:

Air Supply - Even the Nights Are Better

Kenny G - Sentimental, What a Wonderful World

Natalie Cole - Unforgettable

Rita Coolidge - I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love

Eric Carmen - Make Me Lose Control, All By Myself

Paul Davis - Cool Night, I Go Crazy

Helen Reddy - Ain't No Way to Treat a Lady

Billy Joel - She's Always a Woman to Me

Carly Simon - Nobody Does It Better, All I Want Is You

The Stylistics - Betcha By Golly Wow, You Are Everything

Dionne Warwick - Heartbreaker

Barbra Streisand - Somewhere, Woman in Love

Carole King - So Far Away, It's Too Late

Glen Medieros - Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You

Neil Diamond - Love on the Rocks

Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love You

Stevie Wonder - I Just Called to Say I Love You

Nancy Sinatra - These Boots Were Made for Walking

Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart

Neil Sedaka - Laughter in the Rain

Billy Preston - Nothing from Nothing

Irene Cara - What a Feeling

Sheena Easton - For Your Eyes Only

Barry Manilow - Looks Like We Made It

REO Speedwagon - Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore, Keep on Loving You

Petula Clark - Downtown

Herb Alpert - No Time for Time

Cowsills - The Rain, The Park, and Other Things

There were songs from the Carpenters and other great artists as well.

My brother's a Pink Floyd fan (we both work at a Kroger store), and one song that plays at my Kroger Store is this extremely short spacey-style slide guitar song that sounds like it's from David Gilmour. It's entirely instrumental and the song length can't be more than 1:30. It seems so out of place among the other In-Store Audio Network songs (which is saying something). Would you know what that is?


I think the song you are asking about is "All I Had" by Cristina Taddonio. It's a rare track, released in 2009...or 2011; I know you can find it on Spotify. I created a tracklist of the "popular" songs on Apple Music titled "Kroger In-Store Audio Network," but you can find it by just searching "Kroger." Some of the tracks aren't apart of the Apple Music library, including "All or Nothing" by The Carriers, but it's better than nothing. Besides, if you can't find it through an audio streaming service, most likely you'll be able to find it on YouTube. Hope you find this useful.

My husband's and I both work for Kroger's. And we both HATE Wasn't Expecting That. We can't wait to get together to roll our eyes and say they played it AGAIN!

I'm trying to find the name of the rockabilly type instrumental song with the creepy woman's laugh and deep man's voice. Hubby thinks he says "sex fiend??"
