This thread seems to be gone, but I do recall something about Mozart driving evil-doers out of the London Metro (which is not quite the same as changing them for the better, but for Metro patrons it's probably the next best thing).

Great article in the Washington Post today"

"Music to soothe ANNOY the savage breast:

Playing classical music to clear out public spaces is an act of supreme elitism."

But what does it tell us if the "act of supreme elitism" actually works? Razz Laughing

Yep. Gloucester Road station, if my memory serves. Hoodies can't stand Mozart, it appears. After a minute or so they flee, screaming.

I should have thought of this (although the effect on rowdy tough guys evidently does not extend itself to prison guards):
