So we learn today that Muzak, the brand, is now going to be Mood. This is too good to pass up. If there is anything people have learned to love to hate, it’s Muzak. So bad, yet so good. The perfect audioscape for the ironic generation.
Here are a few highlights from Youtube that will put you in a nostalgic mood. Thank god there is a derivative, watered-down, drum-machine-backed soundtrack for, well, everything.
