  • Interesting. When I worked in bookstores, we were told never to play opera or hard rock, since those types of music tended to drive customers away. :-)

  • When you're browsing in an environment that is all about words, singing generally, and especially operatic singing, can be very off-putting – even to classical music lovers.

    I personally prefer shops and restaurants with no music at all. And I'll avoid going into any shop that has music playing above the level of a musical "whisper", regardless of the style.

    I was recently in a record shop where some very grand-sounding music from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition was being played at high volume. I basically couldn't concentrate and just wanted to get out of there – a shame since they were having a closing down sale and there was lots more I probably would have bought if I'd been able to concentrate sufficiently to decide to buy it!
