Music and the Sheraton

Why is it that hotels and airports insist on playing music everywhere? I was trying to do some emails and maybe a blog post in the lobby of the Sheraton this morning but couldn't seem to think. The soft rock hits from the 80s pounded in my head until I realized that I couldn't concentrate. It takes 20 minutes to concentrate... But the typical workplace has an interruption every three minutes. Or in the case of the Sheraton, constant interruption.

What are you doing to create an effective work environment?
