Where have you randomly heard Vanessa?
« on: July 31, 2011, 10:49:06 am »
I was at work the other day - I work on Capitol Hill - and when I went to the supply store to get a few things for a project I'm working on, all of a sudden Big Yellow Taxi started playing.  Not until the "mmmm, bop bop bop" did I even remember Vanessa was IN that song, and it made me so happy to hear her at work!

Where have you all randomly heard Vanessa when you weren't expecting it?

I was grocery shopping at a place called Morrisons in England. I heard ordinary day come on the radio. I am not even going to admit to what i did, but the woman who was putting food on the shelves thought I was insane! lol. Good times


I was in a piano showroom a couple weeks ago and a boy of about 14 came in and sat down on one of the pianos and played the riff to a thousand miles. It made me smile!

Carousel Starbucks when it first came out haha at first I didn't realize it, but I found myself singing with the lyrics and then I eventually noticed it was her cause I haven't heard the studio version of it then

there were other songs played at other stores but I can't remember what they played
or where :D

They play "Ordinary Day" and "Big Yellow Taxi" where I work except they use cover versions (saves them money).

I was at Target in the electronics department and they have a little keyboard dislpay. And one day I was in there, a girl was playing the outro for Home.(:

I also heard Spring Street at JC Penney's
The song may be over, but the music never ends.

These are so cool!

The dining hall at my school has a mix cd they play all the time, and Ordinary Day is on it - so I've heard that song like ten times that way, haha.

I also saw the Nolita Fairytale video playing on the tv screens at an FYE once soon after H&T came out, that was really cool.

When I got co-erced into seeing the movie "White Chicks". It was the only good thing about the entire film.

Just the other day I heard ATM in the pet store.  It was very comforting and it was the first time I smiled that very emotional day.  She always has a way of coming to me when I need it most.
