We're sorting out our entire phone system again, and will most likely be implementing some hold music.

So, if we did have hold music, what sort of songs would you want them to be?

Post some ideas of good songs for hold music or links to youtube videos of those songs.

Thanks in advance.

I would like to have the option to skip to next song, so I have some control on what am I waiting for.

I like the idea of using a plethora of Kiwi Music, something you will hum along to after the call is finished.

Defo go for a Kiwi flavour me thinks.
