Aussie Town Uses Barry Manilow to Keep Teens at Bay
Officials think the "Mandy" singer's music will keep teens from hanging out and revving their engines in parking lots.
Officials in Rockdale, Australia will pump the music of Barry Manilow through speakers in their town to keep hooligan kids from loitering and revving their car engines in neighborhood parking lots. They hope that the “daggy” (slang for unhip) music will send kids fleeing. “Based on reports…daggy music is one way to make the hoons leave an area because they can’t stand the music,” Councilor Bill Saravinovski told Australia’s Daily Telegraph. In Tasmania, the music of Bing Crosby was successfully used to keep kids away from a shopping center in Tasmania as well.
