Back in the 90's I used to work in a small second hand clothing store on lower East side of Manhattan. At the end of a regular working day me and my coworker, who is also one of my closest friends to this day, had closed the store and were counting the days till.
We had turned off the lights in the store, so people passing on the street outside would know that we were closed for business. Only the street lights outside the window display were lighting up the front desk where we were standing.
This store had a CD player with room for 10 discs at a time, which would be on random play during opening hours. At this particular time the CD player was completely turned off, and I do mean off from the main power button. I stood about 1 meter away from it counting the cash, and my coworker stood on the opposite side of the desk, when all of a sudden Prodigy's song "Voodoo people" started playing at full volume in the store. That song has a very unnerving start, and needless to say, me and my coworker freaked out, turned off the music and ran out of there.
Anybody who owns that Prodigy record know that "Voodoo people" isn't the first song on the album, and that album wasn't the first one inside the CD player. How the player skipped to that record and that song on it's own when being completely off is a mystery to me.
During working hours the CD player also skipped from random to all of a sudden playing one particular album from start to finish, without anyone of the staff touching it. The album in question wasn't Prodigy, but ABBA which I felt was a feel good wink at my Swedish background. Maybe it was just the CD player randomly malfunctioning, but I have wondered about it many times through the years, knowing that it is impossible for it to start playing the way it did when completely turned off.
