Going up? Floor 19 please. And then you dash for the button to get off at the next floor when this elevator music goes fifty shades of grey on you. In the bad way. You’d have to hear it to really believe me but this album is one of the WORST albums of this project 365 Daily Dose of Vinyl project. he Big Hits of Today Vol. 1. It covers every elevator song you’ve ever heard and kills them. Take for example Hey Jude. Within one 3:28 minute song ~ this artists goes into 7 different musical genres from country to jazz to disco to kids chorale. None of it makes sense. It’s just rethrift, the hits, noise. Some of the songs? Aquarius, Let the Sunshine In, Hey Jude and Eloise. Oh jeez.
wiki: Elevator music (also known as Muzak, piped music, weather music or lift music) refers to instrumental arrangements of popular music designed for playing in shopping malls, grocery stores,department stores, telephone systems (while the caller is on hold), cruise ships, airports, business offices, and elevators. The term is also frequently applied as a generic term for any form of easy listening, smooth jazz, or middle of the road music, or to the type of recordings commonly heard on “beautiful music” radio stations. The Muzak Holdings Corporation is a major supplier of business background music, and was the best known such supplier for years. Since 1997 Muzak has used original artists for its music source,except on the Environmental channel. Elevator music is typically set to a very simple melody, so that it can be unobtrusively looped back to the beginning. In a mall or shopping center, elevator music of a specific type has been found to have a psychological effect: slower, more relaxed music tends to make people slow down and browse longer.
