This just in...You fixed the BIGGBY song! Yay!

I'm currently at the Biggby in Grand Rapids... I hear the Biggby song again and I was dreading having to suffer through the tone-deaf whistling part at the end of the song, when, the song suddenly stopped right before it became awful.

I'm so happy you switched the song.


Now I don't have to cry silent tears of frustration over the crappy part of that song, I'll just cry tears of joy, or tears of deliciousness, or tears of bemusement. OK, I'm not going to cry at all, which is a good thing.

Thanks for fixing the song.

Hey, I like the whistling! I also like Willy Nelson, Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan, non of whom were ever close to perfect pitch. I suppose that's why they say art is subjective, eh?

My personal fav in the song is the whistling. It makes me smile every time I hear it =)

I, too, was a fan of the whistling :(

Whistling was good, definitely room for improvement on tone in some areas...and I agree, a little TOO long for my liking. However, the song is so catchy, it usually outweighed the whistling for me! Biggby coffee is my happy place!

As one blog post noted "and now 7 minutes of pointless whistling." Rob is totally on to something. Scratching nails on a blackboard may make you memorable but in the end folks will leave the room holding their ears and screaming. And you have to wonder about the poor baristas. They listen to that whistling for a whole shift and who can blame them for getting jumpy?

Hey Matt...I like Dylan, Jagger and Nelson too, but NOT for their whistling. I didn't like the British POW's whistling in "Bridge on the River Kwai." I never "Don't Worry, Be Happy" when the singer starts whistling. Loved the Andy Griffith Show (well, actually I loved Barney Fife) but the whistling in the theme song....yuck! I do not always look on the bright side of life when someone whistles.

Glad you didn't cry, Rob. I'm about too, however.
