Everybody loves Muzak, but business owners love it even more, and it’s more popular than Jesus.
Muzak is not supposed to be listened to, it’s there to alter people’s mood and behavior.
If you’re a worker or a shopper, it’s supposed to keep you relaxed but alert, ready to work or shop tirelessly without actually being distracted by the music being played.
Vocals are almost never heard in true Muzak, and any other distractions that might make you actually pay attention to the music, loud drums or guitar solos, for example, are filtered out.
Muzak now has many different channels that a subscriber can choose from, depending on the demographics of the audience.
Whatever the mix, it seems to work very well.
Since World War II, Muzak has been found in department stores, offices, restaurants, hotels, airports, and even in coffee shops in the Netherlands.
Muzak is also sometimes used to comedic effect in funny movies.
