The retailers want to attract more customers by creating an atmosphere for a particular type of people, class, age, with desired products. Influence of music can be seen all around the globe. Industry professionals make millions of dollars by producing and creating new songs and rhythms in special events (Example: Shakira; World Cup 2010). Music in Bosnia and Herzegovina is well spread, and it can be one of the best places to see how music influences human lives and their habits. It is well-known fact that Bosnian’s devote most of the time by listening to music and use it as a motivation or charm of happiness to forget everyday problems. For Bosnians, music is like a sweet drink, escapade from problems and life motivation. Music is their inborn gift, and for this study, Bosnia and Herzegovina is the right place to see how much music impacts young adults, and how retails stores can benefit from it.
