I Like Records 44

Wednesday afternoon, middle aged guy, not drunk.
GUY-Do you have Kiss “Crazy, crazy nights”, I just saw them and that’s the only song I don’t have by them.

ME-(look it up) Yeah, we should have that (get it from the Kiss section)..here you go Crazy Nights.

GUY-No…no man….no…This isn’t it…it’s Crazy CRAZY Nights…This is just crazy nights

ME-yeah…but there’s a song called “Crazy, Crazy Nights” on there.

GUY-...oooooohhhhhh yeeaahh…it is….I guess they were messin’ with me, with the title…yeah…that’s pretty tricky of them…(takes a deep breath) Okay, now I have a second question….Arlo Guthrie…..what’s his newest album?…..Do you know if that’s what he’s playing in concert now?

ME-.…uh….Let me see what his newest album is (look it up)…it’s called Tales of ’69, it came out last year.

GUY-Is that what he’s playing live?…cause that’s what they usually do…with the concerts……sometimes.

ME-...Yeah, I don’t know what he’s playing live, you should check his website, maybe they would know.

GUY-(puzzled look)…yeaahhh…so why do you think Kiss did that….why didn’t they name it Crazy CRAZY Nights?

ME-...uh…I don’t know…maybe two crazy’s was too much

GUY-(blank stare)…yeah…but why?……that’s weird isn’t it?…I think so…but the song is on the cd…mmmmm (leaves)

[about an hour later]

Phone call-(it was the same guy) ...uh..do you got the new Arlo Guthrie album?

ME-Weren’t you in here asking about that?

Phone call- um…uhh…..(click)
