Shopping for Temptation
It was one of those moments when a music fan can feel as if he's fallen through the looking glass. This morning, I had to dash to my neighborhood King Soopers, in the Ken-Caryl Ranch area, to pick up some orange juice and milk, and as I stepped inside, the song filling the store was "Been Caught Stealing," an affectionate ode to shoplifting by Jane's Addiction that originally appeared on the 1990 album Ritual de lo Habitual.
In answer to your unasked question: Yes, I paid for my items, but I was sure as hell tempted to snatch and grab -- and there's no telling how many others succumbed. King Soopers reps might want to check that playlist a little closer next time. -- Michael Roberts
