when activated, plays annoying songs like "it's a small world" to drive people out, unlike convention alarms when people get accustumed to.

       Thin Lizzy: Get out of here.
Jonny Cash: The ring of fire.
AC/DC: Sin city (burning feeling).
The Clash: London's Burning.
  

       If there were several fire alarms, they could all play the London's burning nursery rhyme out of sync.

       "Fire - I bring you to burn !" - The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, who used to set fire to himself whist performing (will look for link) Only problem is, I would stay to listen to it.

       The trouble with playing a song for the fire alarm is that in crowded nightclubs, if you play something like the Trammp's "Disco Inferno", those who know the building's on fire might think it in slightly poor taste - everyone else will just think it's 70's night.

       I can't imagine a way to empty a building faster than by playing Barry Manilow. As to anyone who stayed to listen, good riddance.

       I can't imagine a way to empty a building faster than by shaking it   

       But I digress

       baked in Japan. They play a melody and a voice recording ordering evacuation.

       It should play an announcement: "Free ipods being given away outside - to the first 100 people!"

       yeah but the loud buzzing/beeping kind of alarms are the kind of sound people don't want to be around, so they want to leave the building to get away from the annoying noise, thus bringing them to a safe area.
