Today music is used to change the mood of people quite effectively.

In the end of 50s the US sociologists have carried out an experiment in a large shopping mall. It was proven that music influences the customer’s actions. The calm and relaxing music made the customers slow down, spend more time examining the goods and finally buy more. The fast music created the opposite effect and made the customers spend less time choosing and buying the items. This trick is used by McDonald’s network during hot hours. The customers are encouraged to eat faster and leave the tables sooner.
