Fast Company has a fascinating article up about the most recognizable sounds known to man.

Among many interesting points, the article, by Martin Lindstrom, notes the decline in memorable jingles and other marketing music in the last 10 years. Still, the second most addictive sound is that brief sonic signature of Intel (you know the one – dah-dah-du-DAH).

Lindstrom also notes that when someone made a soundless slot machine, revenue fell by 24 percent.

Thanks to colleague David Sheets for pointing out this article.
