I’m a Barbie girl, in a lobby world

Budding musicians the world over tend to be ambitious. In common with most early intentions, it’s only a select few who make a career playing their own music, or who make a living playing the music they choose to play.
All of which makes me wonder what was going through the mind of whoever was playing the keyboard on the muzak version of Aqua’s ‘I’m a Barbie girl’ that was playing in the Moevenpick Istanbul restaurant this evening. Surely a cultural lowpoint in any self-respecting pianist’s career – although possibly one notch above recording yet another rendition of Elton John’s ‘Nikita’, surely the lobby number one, the world over.
