Ahhh, so it was supposed to be "You would be one of the few out there.."

Thanks for that clarification.

IRD has a pretty decent on hold music list. The only problem is that the automated reminder plays every 10 seconds or so & you can't enjoy the tunes!

They have to.  Noone wants to talk to them, and the average hold time is "frakking ages" - so they have to make sure you have as little incentive to hang up as possible.

Now Orcon, there's a company that could do with a refresh to their hold music, considering the half hour wait to talk to anyone.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

Why not be different and use recording which are out of copyright!

Edit to say: the MP3 encodings themselves on the site above are CC licensed non commercial, but point is, there is plenty of non-copyright material, or freely licensed material out there, no need to pay APRA, it's not like the artist really gets jack out of it.

<Off topic>
Exactly. I don't beleive in those compaines like Phonographic Performances New Zealand, How much of the money ends up back at the artist?

What about some new music. Like Goldfrapp?
Or Apple's TV ads seem to have the right sort of Hold Music. :)
