After spending too much time in Homebase and IKEA, I can confirm that both are obsessed by playing bland popular music from the 80’s over their tinny sound systems. You don’t notice it until you are away from it, but the inertia has seeped into your sub-conscious. I find all this 80’s revivalism wierd, from the Olympic 2012 branding to the Transformers to The Police to Prince. And to the regurgitation of the Wispa.
A bear with a pork pie hat will be next. But at least back in the day, beer glasses had handles.
