It's not so much that I don't like them, but all spoken word tracks are bothersome. I can't tell if the station died or if my computer speakers are on the fritz without turning the volume WAY up! Since I share an office w/ 2 others that is a no-no :D

some of the Epcot area loops that are still stuck in the 80's, Hall of Presidents, and that AWFUL Canada song.

Those 80's tracks bring back a lot of memories for me... I like them.

It's got to be a generational thing.

Well I only lived 5 years in the 80s but hearing the stuff just brings back the memories of when I was 5 inside the park.

aww man, I was a child of the 80s too, so it's not really a generational thing. (I was born in 1983.) I think it stems mainly from my mom's adult lite music she used to listen to. Daddy used to listen to classic rock, so I veer more towards his tastes.

to me Future World will always be associated with the 80s, from the shapes of the buildings to the colors they used.

but I do love The Land's loop that was on yesterday, which was a lot of standards, like Sinatra.

I must admit, I love the Fritos track. The way he says 'free tooooes' is just so cute. :mrgreen:

There aren't many tracks I don't like, though listening last night reminded me how much I -don't- miss Captain EO.

Yeah, but to hear people talk about it who actually saw it in operation, it was quite an extraordinary machine. You'd put your money in the slot, at which time one of the recordings of Klondike and the Frito Kid would play, then your bag of deeeelicious Fritos would appear from inside the mine shaft of the miniature mountain, and then slide down the mountainside into your waiting hands. Too bad Disney couldn't replace some of the ordinary vending machines around the parks today with something this unique.

Agree - they really bring me back as a kid. Love 'em!

Wow now that I actually know what it is and what it did sounds amazing! I don't think I hate the track as much anymore, at first I thought it was just something random.

Anyone have a picture of this?

Finding a picture of this machine has been very difficult. We located it once, but I can't seem to find it again. Anyone?

I've always found the Frito Kid track cute. I would have loved to see this first hand. I purchased a bag of Frito's a few weeks ago and the Frito Kid was on the bag, my parents had no clue who he was, but I did:)
