  • Mood:

we appreciate your call

We have a new phone system at work. It has an audio input for hold music. That audio input is now connected to a Windows server that was in that rack anyhow, which has an mp3 player running on it on shuffle. Ta-da, hold music!

I've decided that the hold music collection deserves some curating. I'm pleased with my first playlist:
  • Yu Miyake - Overture from Katamari Damacy
  • Stompin' Tom Connors - Sudbury Saturday Night
  • Freezepop - Here Comes a Special Boy
  • Shuffle Demons - Hockey Night in Canada Theme
  • Kim Barlow - Waterfall (Instrumental)
  • Jaymz Bee and the Royal Jelly Orchestra - Safety Dance
  • La Bottine Souriante - La Tapinie / Le Reel Des Voyageurs
  • Barcelona - Shell Account
  • Kate and Anna McGarrigle - The Log Driver's Waltz
and, of course,
  • Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up
It's a shame we don't put people on hold that often.

ETA: I threw Basshunter's "Boten Anna" in there too.
ETAA: Oh, and the Muppets singing "Mahna Mahna" is in there as well.
