I hate the music in County Fair, especially while waiting in line for Deja Vu.

I noticed the music theming when I was there a few weeks ago. I was there again on Friday last week, and they seemed like County fair was mixed up a bit- some 70's, some 80's and even a couple 90's tunes. I embarrassed my son jammin to Disco Inferno while in line for Deja Vu! :wink:
