Work's been slow lately so rather than sit at my desk I chose the in vitro lunch method today and dined in at my usual Japanese take-out joint.

It wasn't a mistake, but it wasn't not a mistake.

The service was good. And the food was fine. But the music? Pretty much unsane. It was porno music, but more than that it was like, World Porno Music. At first I thought it was just some strange Japanese music so I kept an open mind, but then I realized what I was hearing was a dead ringer for a Skinemax soundtrack. Let me not be the first to say that when you're a lady, which I am, it is unnerving to eat raw fish and involuntarily think of sex. And not just any sex, but cheesy, Casio-keyboard-drumbeat sex. Think: The Poor Man's Enigma. EXTREMELY poor! And from ASIA!

At one point there was breathy singing, and the singing was in English. Here is what the lyrics were, as far as I could decipher: "I like the way you treat me/Treat me/The way you treat me/I like the way you treat me/You me/Treat me/Me me/The way you/Treat me/Treat me."

Now imagine drums and pan flute and synthesized soundscapes. You just shit yourself and immediately lost your mind, right?! That's what happened to me. It was total UNSANITY!

Let's just say I didn't linger over my salmon teriyaki and sushi combination bento. I don't think I like it raw so much, after all.

Hee hee!
I tried to find the song and the closest I got was a Korean female artist's ditty that was all in Korean except for this one verse in English:
"I Like The I Like The Way You Treat Me
Lover Good Times And Bad times
Will You Love Me Forever
Do What I do Just Like I Do Never Love Another
Cool Baby Cool Won't You Love Me Like No other"
