Grocery shoppers buy more food when the music is slower

"With fast music playing, the Dallas grocery store did about $12,000 in sales each day. With slow music: $16,000. Interestingly, most of the shoppers, when asked upon leaving the store about hearing music, didn’t recall whether or not they heard music. "

Lots of interesting discussion around the ubiquity of atmospheric music, and a frank discussion of revolting men who use public restroom stalls, all in this episode of Freakonomics.
