............heard someone talking on the radio other day about the way they use music in the supermarkets/malls to encourage people to buy things.........basically they said that at the early part of the day the music is fairly chilled out to get people to relax.......later in the day, towards closing time, they play more energetic stuff as if to say sub-consciously "hurry up and buy!!"......

It's more complex than this, because there are also subliminal tapes with embedded messages to get people to buy, or just not to steal! ("They Live" styleee? :ooh:) ........Not that it works; a few years back I used to work at C and A and in the three month space I was there, on TWO occasions some tief had driven up in a car, smashed the window and med off with a bunch of clothes! :grin:

Can't recall wot choons they were playing- but obviously it dint work! :laff: :haha: :bigwink:

In the shopping centre 2day, they were playing "Baby Come Back"......NOT 'cos there's a UB fan running the place, but cause some poor toddler lost his parents. :grin:
