Auld Lang Syne
The new year song. We all know it well. But perhaps not as well as the japanese know it. Coz it is played by millions of stores daily in japan to let customers know the store is closing.
It is a kind way of saying *get out*.
When you hear the song, check out and get out. The store employees will often line up to tell you ‘thanks for shopping here’ as you walk through and out of the store. Don:t just sit there looking stupid and listening to the pretty music like i did so long ago.
