So I'm going to blame @merakisimon for this... someone on Twitter complained about the music on hold when calling Meraki support.
I suggested "I Bet They Won't Play This Song On The Radio," from Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album. When I was in high school, a new radio station played a 7-10 minute loop on non-stop repeat for 3+ weeks to test their equipment, and I didn't really get tired of the song.
What music would you like to hear on Meraki's music on hold?
Edited to add: I'm not criticizing the person with valid concerns about being on hold. I hate being on hold too. I'm just pointing out that his comment on the music inspired this thread. 🙂
Anything Laura Mvula, but especially when she did Sing To The Moon with Snarky Puppy.
Andrew Bird, Kishi Bashi, most any kind of motet just so a ton of choirs can get work...
Ooohhh I love this... Monty Python will be hard to beat. But it's short so maybe a playlist is needed.
Maybe some of these:
The Beatles - Help
Eric Prydz - Call on me
David Bowie - Space Oddity
Adele - Hello
Pink Floyd - Is there anybody out there
Tenacious D - Best song in the world
I'm always a fan of when they let you choose what type of music you want to listen to like "Press 1 for jazz, press 2 for pop, press 3 for silence". I usually just choose silence in those instances though.
I prefer real music not some generic tune playing on a loop as I had to listen to while calling one company the other day, I spent 15 minutes listening to some random tuned played on a flute.....
Some comedy would be different, I think it would be nice to have a laugh during what is usually a frustrating wait.
A company called openeye has a comedian telling jokes
As a Networking company might it not be better to have snippets of tech news or phases for practice exams 🙂
