“Good music” is so subjective, don’t you think?

I can tell you that Macy’s drove me away several years ago because of their loud music. Recently so did GAP. So did a few other places. I’m saving lots of money because of the music they play! I guess I should be grateful.

I still say I’d love it if stores would hand out headphones to those who would like to listen to their choice of music. I think most people would skip it and either enjoy the lack of music (I fall into this category) or bring their own music and listen with earbuds. But what do I know?
