Classic tünes for classic coffee

Each trücup roast is named after a classic rock song. How do we pick the song that goes with each blend? First, we argue a lot. And then everyone gets a vote. (Except Norm in Accounts Payable who always writes in show tunes.)

Here are the songs that rock our roasts:

Born to be Mild:

“Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf
Made famous by the 1969 movie “Easy Rider,” starring Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson with a chorus that’s custom made for belting out behind the wheel, in the shower or any time you’re alone. Listen

Stuck in the Middle:

“Stuck in the Middle with You” by Stealers Wheel
Scottish band Stealers Wheel were one-hit wonders in 1973 with this classic, even though no one knew what a “stealers wheel” was. Today, despite having the internet, we still have no clue. Listen

Heart of Bold:

“Heart of Gold” by Neil Young
This song is cool. Especially if you imagine Neil Young singing it in 1972 with long hair, faded denim jacket and groovy bellbottoms. Believe it or not, it was his only number one single in the U.S. Listen

Dark as Night:

“Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen
The most danceable track off Springsteen’s massive “Born in the USA” album, the video for this song also launched the career of Courtney Cox from “Friends” when she was pulled out of the crowd to dance on stage. Brüüüüüüce! Listen

You’ve Got a Blend:

“You’ve Got a Friend” by Carol King & James Taylor
King won a Grammy for this song in 1971 and it was also a number one hit for Taylor in the same year. When asked if they wanted to sing it together, they said “let’s duet!” Listen

Single-Serve Cups:

It’s So Easy by Linda Rondstadt
A success in several different decades and genres, Rondstadt covered this Buddy Holly song in 1977. It’s the perfect song for our single-serve cups which really are so easy.  Listen
