Likewise, playing hip-hop on your porch will shoo off pesky elderlies with their rocking chairs.

Thats crazy, simple ideas to complicated problems.
Reminds me of the "calming" pink paint in correctional institutions.
When I was in college, I woke up from a nap (after an all-nighter) distinctly hearing "And who, dressed as Clark Kent...". It turned out the guy in the room next to me was playing the "Ride of the Valkyries"!
(And if you understand that, you are as God-awful old as I am!)

(I have to admit that Messiaen would probably shoo off most of the pesky elderlies as well as the hip-hop types...)
