Music in restsurants.... 2 Months ago  
www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-53894554

One positive from Covid lunacy responses: the lucky Scots have had "ambient" music banned in restsurants. The danger is that if it is playing people will have to lean closer to one another to speak, thereby risking a 0.01% possibility of death.

Who on earth wants to hear background music when eating out? Apart from anything, it is unlikely to be Motzart...

It's often used to muffle conversations. Many secrets have been revealed at restaurant tables.

Funnily enough, I suggested to the chemist the other day that the blaring disco music might not be helpful when people are trying to communicate in masks two metres apart.

I would love music banned everywhere.

At my local supermarket they blare out 1970s disco and pop crap. Who the fuck wants to listen to the Nolan's or ABC by Jackson 5 whilst navigating a maze of aisles? Unless they want to kill people with the silent killer called stress. I wouldn't put it by pass the corporation to do that.

ABBA songs really does piss me off especially near Christmas and New Year's Day celebrations. Fairytale in New York causes nothing but rows or boredom. I'm sure Pogues are cursed.

Muzak has its place though in restaurants and pharmacies, where the conversations are often confidential. It's now a worldwide phenomenon, and is seen as a reasonable compromise.

Some voices can carry considerable distances and many public places and shops aren't designed to curtail this type of broadcasting. Frequently the opposite.

I was in a mini-market shop near my train station last week at 5:30 am getting a shitty machine coffee and the most awful pop crap was blaring out.

I grimaced and swore behind my mask.

Admiral I would say that muzak in the chemist is not sufficient to mask "private" conversations; not possible in a public place.

KFC coffee can't be any more awful than the mini mart coffee you had. KFC has really gone down hill in the recent years.
