I noticed the other night at work when it was really dead that the music was really loud. Not only that , the music we are playing is like 70’s , 80’s , 90’s , up to the present top 40 stuff. Not exactly any music with rhyme or reason to it. Kokomo by the Beach Boys after a listen or two loses it at least for me if I am dining out.
For the customer this is not so good especially if they have to talk over the music , and to boot if they are listening to a song that they have disliked over the years. Now if it is only playing low in the background they will miss it amidst the chatter at the table , and if there is a pause in the talk , at least it will only be a soft sound rather than a forgotten singer from the 80’s bellowing out a tune causing people to wince at the table.
Let’s be clear , background music unless you are at a concert , should just be that and not detract from the meal experience. If you have to speak louder than you are used to , the music is too loud and the place is too noisy. Both do not make for an enjoyable dining experience.
The Thursday quiz is tomorrow and yesterday got my 40th , 41st and 42nd follower. Wow! I do not think any of you had a blog I could promote but if you want some promotion just email me and I will do something if you like. Many thanks!
