Elevator Music
« on: July 28, 2022, 07:05:31 am »
Post your preferred or most annoying elevator music. This should include the type of thing you would hear when on call waiting.
I find this tune quite soothing in such situations, so it gets preferred status.

That is true. Taking the stairs saves lives.
Help others, especially animals. Say what you think, be considerate of others. Appreciate more than deprecate. Teach well, jump on teachable moments. Enjoy Korea as it is, without changing it. Dwell!

It's ok now that I'm back home and seldom have to traverse more than about 5 levels but that would have been a challenge in some of my old digs in Korea. Scaling 22 floors  more than twice a day carrying shopping might also cause heart problems for the elderly and uninitiated. That said the notion of elevator music was intended as a type of metaphor in this thread in the way it was used in the lyric to this song.

Quote
So it's Tuesday Morning and my Centrelink hasn't come through
So I pick up the phone because I've got some abusing to do
But all I get is elevator music
Waiting on the line
On hold all the time
All I get is elevator music
Waiting on the line
'Til I get a reply

I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone
I'm on Smoko, so leave me alone

How does one square that circle?

(Note: no elevator i've been in has had music for over three years, since pre-COVID; i avoid cities, take the stairs instead if 4th floor or less.)

Did you read the lyrics from the song?

It's the way the term elevator music is sometimes used in a much broader sense to describe that type of music that one sometimes listens too when in a situation where they are waiting, be it in an elevator, or waiting on the end of a telephone line.

My late father used it to describe a type of music that he considered bland and inoffensive. Then again, by my tastes I considered most of what he enjoyed to be a type of elevator music:laugh:

My late dad did too.
I fond it "rich" (as in overdone) given he was all jazz and classical, and sometimes a Liszt or, he actually liked, Norah Jones.

Ahh Geez, now you've done it Savant. You've gone and got yourself added to the ignore list'. Might even get yourself a personal message telling you that your post was "cowardly". Pretty soon he'll only be posting to himself  :laugh:

All this board is now: Vanís ramblings and miscellaneous sock puppets. But, Iím here to the end to watch the flames.

That would be the winner so far under the annoying/irritating category.
