I think I can top everyone.� In the late 1970's I was serving in the US Army doing top secret stuff in in a semi trailer in Germany.� Because it was top secret we were required to play "cover music" so anybody eavesdropping on us would be unable to pick out the really important stuff.� The army thoughtfully provided us with a tape player that played continuous loop audio tape and one music tape consisting entirely of Christmas carols played on Hawaiian slack key guitars.� All winter we worked 12 hour shifts in an unheated steel box listening to the same songs played over and over and over on Hawaiian slack key guitars.

The price of freedom.
