I doubt this is for sale at the counter

I’m sitting in Starbucks trying to figure out a tune that I know I know, but can’t quite make out above the din of a packed throng of young Koreans out shopping. Finally I figure it out: Your Own Special Way by Genesis, circa 1977. What an odd song to hear over any loudspeaker, let alone one inside Starbucks. I wonder who picked it. Is this being piped over from America, or did someone here make that aesthetic choice?

Update, 4:17pm. Now they’re playing I Know What I Like (In My Wardrobe). Gabriel era, 1973. Even stranger. Someone here likey da prog.
