What makes people think that whereever there is a large gathering of people, there has to be music. I’m not talking about live music, I’m talking about a CD player, or worse yet, a radio?
There was music playing
- when I was on the houseboat on a beautiful summer day (lets drown out the slap of the water against the hull)
- at a restaurant where the clatter and chatter was loud (let’s eat there, I like the radio station they play)
- at a yard sale (I’m so bored I want to listen to my CD’s)
- at a gigantic warehouse sale (these hundreds of people will buy more if we play music)
I’m not talking about Muzak, which is the psychological attack on your credit card
Are people really that afraid of listening to the natural, or even unnatural, sounds around them?
