Store songs

Post by Yudan Taiteki » Sat 02.09.2008 11:29 pm

There was an earlier thread discussing the mind-warping in-store songs played in Japanese stores. I finally stumbled on a page with mp4s of three of the worst offenders (Yamada Denki, Bic Camera, and Don Quijote):

Listening to all three of them in a row clearly shows Yamada Denki to be by far the worst. I have heard people argue for Don Quijote, but they are wrong. (If you haven't been in any of the places, imagine these songs playing loudly through PAs on loop for the entire time you're in the store, mixed with "IRASSHAIMASE!" at top volume.)

I've heard some people say that Deo Deo is worse than Yamada, but they didn't have any of those in Tochigi so I've never heard that song.
