Abstract

Music is considered to be one of the most important executional cues in advertisements. It is ubiquitous in the context of television and radio advertising, with more than 94% of advertisements incorporating music (Allan, 2008). Music accounts for a significant commercial advantage in the context of advertising by producing favorable associations with the product or brand (Gorn, 1982), contributing to the message (Hecker, 1984; Hung, 2000), and attracting consumers' attention and enhancing message recall (Yalch, 1991).
