I invariably listen to music whilst at work. To-day, a colleague did me a "favour" by tuning-in a music channel on the smart TV. He introduced it as: "Listen to this, it's great!"

It was non-stop rock & pop "classics", frequently interrupted by adverts. As if this wasn't bad enough, the songs weren't by the original artists. The songs were covered by people who were so no-names that they weren't even credited.

Out of politeness I felt obligated to listen to it for a while.

It was purgatory.

@fitheach Hmm. I could not be so brave. We get enough of that in most every gas station and/or convenience store in the midwest US; possibly some shopping malls too. This type of thing was tactfully *designed* to make you brain dead. Methinks your colleague be in leagues with "we must not say whom".

Must be related to elevator music.

Interestingly, our cheap supermarkets (Aldi and Lidl) don't have music, but, Morrison's does.
