Music on Hold . . . .
I was reminded of this by the 'Music In The Office' thread.
While calling some manufacturer or other one day I found myself on hold, listening to some ghastly nonsense and wondered why they don't play something relevant and interesting?
Myself and my support desk colleagues then spent an entertaining afternoon devising the "IT support line music-on-hold playlist".
What would you put on it?

i did have to call my school the other week, and got put on hold, found my self singing(making noises to the music) along. was that kinda opera/strings type music they have on the olymics.
but i would have some random stuff on defo my collegue would say flower kings and they maybe giants.
i would go for nirvana or the foos, or joe bonamassa or sea sick steve lol either that or totally random NWA lol

Er.. that would be classical music then - a good choice for 'on hold' as the problem with the songs is that someone somewhere is going to hate them and want to kill by the time someone answers the phone

A simple beep works for me. As long as there isn't an annoying voice telling me that "My call is important and will be answered as soon as an operator becomes available" then I'm happy with most things.

I thought there was some kind of licencing issue's with this kind of thing, or was that just me being told some rubbish.. ?
