So – Elevator music – What is this? I’ve always heard this term, but finding something that could really be called that wasn’t so easy for me, at least.

I figured any slow, boring instrumental song would do, and that’s pretty much the way it is. But there are lots of regular songs that have been turned into the so called ‘elevator music’.

These are songs that are played in the background at places, where you don’t really have to pay attention, but you kind of hear them anyway. You can hear them on elevators (though I’ve never been in one that played music), at the grocery store, department stores at the mall, and any place where people congregate.

This type of music can also be called Muzak, easy listening, & background music.

I’m not sure if this song I chose has been used as such, but probably has been at one time or another.

Born free
As free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart
Live free
And beauty surrounds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star
Stay free
Where no walls divide you
You’re free as a roaring tide so there’s no need to hide
Born free
And life is worth living
But only worth living
‘Cause you’re born free
Stay free
Where no walls divide you
You’re free as a roaring tide so there’s no need to hide
Born free
And life is worth living
But only worth living
‘Cause you’re born free
