No music day.

Did you know that Britain had a “no music day“? They turn off all the cloying background tunes you hear throughout daily life.

Radio stations, stores, recording studios and scores of music lovers took a laudable vow of musical silence. Should No Music Day come to America tomorrow, it wouldn’t be soon enough.

I think this sounds wonderful. The article has lots more about how music is used to sell us things.
