They actually did research on this… and people who were dinning while listening to this song left more money.
I’ve been a bar tender and a waitress, so I know how much a good tip means to ya.
Well… the University of Innsbruck did a study on this and you can get bigger tips by playing “Dancing Queen” from ABBA in the restaurant!
Seriously….customers left an extra 5% with the check.
Other upbeat songs like Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl,” and Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now,” had a similar effect as well.
The study says that uplifting music makes people happy and the better mood someone is in, the more they tend to tip…. well duh.
If I go to a restaurant and I hear Dancing Queen on repeat….. ugh.
