As I said in this blog post, I can't help but notice the music played in supermarkets. Here are the last five songs I'm heard in them. It's an eclectic but very supermarket mix.
1. Samantha Mumba - Gotta Tell You
It's classic supermarket music because it fits into the genre of forgotten 2000s pop songs. The only place this song gets played is in the supermarket and on YouTube.

With Hunger Games: Catching Fire out today, what's more appropriate than a Sesame Street parody of the movie called Hungry Games - Catching Fur?
Not to mention, I can never resist these clever Sesame Street parodies.
This one features Cookie Monster as Hungry Games participant Cookieness Evereat who volunteers because there are cookies.
It even has some fun with Evereat by breaking the fourth wall and acknowledging that being the strong female heroine of a successful film franchise is hard work.
Evereat's companions in the games are Finicky, a picky eater and Pita, who is literally a piece of pita bread.
Is it me or does that piece of bread actually kind of look like Josh Hutcherson?

There's something so right about this mashup of Hall and Oates and hip-hop songs called Ballin' Oats from the DJ Scott Melkin and his Melkin Project. The title is just great by itself.
It doesn't seem obvious that mixing "Maneater" with Wu-Tang's "C.R.E.A.M" would result in such a great song but it does. Maybe it's because Hall and Oates were always funk soul brothers.
There are four other tracks with hip hop artists such as T.I. and Kanye West that aren't quite as good although interesting enough.
This weird but successful combination can be summed up with this fake Simpsons product.

Sesame Street keeps cranking out quality parodies of hit shows with their Homeland parody Homelamb.
I have to imagine these things go way over children's heads, but they're still great. In fact, it functions as a pretty accurate depiction of season one of Homeland.
Lamb puns and things such as Baaah-rody and Caaah-rie shouldn't be this amusing although they are. It even nails Carrie's weird sexual obsession Brody without getting inappropriate.
This Muppet version of Homeland might even be able make the Dana character tolerable, which would be doing the impossible.

Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know" is already a great song that doesn't need a saxophone riff, but it has one because it's a product of the 80s.
At the very least, it has a different kind of saxophone riff that I've named the prancing saxophone.
It's not everyday you see a guy high leg kicking and ballet dancing with a saxophone, but the saxophone player in this video goes all in.
Prance on saxophone guy, prance on.

I can't help but notice the random music played in supermarkets. For the most part, supermarkets love their pop songs and seem to be stuck in some 90s to early 2000s time warp.
I'd love to know how they pick their music because it's certainly an odd arrangement. Here's a list of the songs I've heard the last three times I've gone to the supermarket.

Remember Key and Peele's hilarious East/West bowl sketch last year? Well, they've followed that up by using the same characters to make a parody of the Chicago Bears Super Bowl Shuffle video.
All your favorite players such as L'Carpetron Dookmarriet, T'Variusness King, and Hingle Mcringleberry are back. Not to mention, there's a great and totally necessary saxophone interlude.
But once again, Dan Smith steals the show. You just have to see him in action for yourself as words don't really do him justice.
