I'd be curious to know what sort of music is deemed appropriate--although for that amount of money, I'd expect a live busker working at union rates.

As for blending public conveniences in with the public landscape, I'm all for it. Odd, isn't it, that Americans pride themselves being a nation of rugged individualism--and the inventors and implementers of mass production?

Even odder, many people see no contradiction.

Wow!!!!!

We have mass-produced public loos, gradually being installed, that have SOME of the same attributes - not the individuality ,or quite the expense, though!

They are single units, brightly lit, play light classical music, are self-cleaning - and open automatically after a few minutes!!

They are designed to stop the loos becoming meccas for anonymous sex - and to discourage vandalism.

One could have fun with the music...


Dance, ballerina, dance, by Nat King Cole...
I think of this since I had a ballerina music box when I was ten... but it didn't play Nat.

So, what would they be playing to entertain the folk in Switzerland?
