Apparently, when stores, malls, schools and more in China are closing, they all play one particular song: Kenny G’s “Going Home”. It’s so standard, in fact, that folks don’t have any idea how it started and assume it’s a global custom.
According to a manager, Panjiayuan has used the tune since 2000. She did not know why.
“Isn’t it just played everywhere?” she asked.
No it is not, China. No it is not.
