Can the canned music!

Posted on Fri, Jan 22, 2010 at 1:48 PM

I don’t get it… honestly. WHY do most restaurants/bars play that LOUD canned-in music? Does anyone go there to listen to the (not “live”) tunes? I think NOT! People go there to eat (especially on wing night) and chat. The hubbub of voices is loud enough when the bar is packed, so why add the noise of music NO-ONE is listening to?? It’s not like anyone is going to get up and dance (could happen, though I suspect it isn’t the norm). I honestly want to know… is there a purpose? Does it make people drink more? There MUST be a reason, but I’m oblivious to what it could be. Any ideas?
