Download: The best hold music since ‘Careless Whisper’

Did you know that the average person will spend 43 days of his or her life waiting on hold? It's true, scientific fact.

That's a lot of time spent waiting to speak to a customer service rep, listening to some third-rate cover of ‘Careless Whisper.’ When we found out about this we were like, “Now just hold on a minute…” (pun totally intended). Tormenting people with saxophone Muzak is no way to treat customers. That's why we hired a professional musician to compose a new song, one that the hold music-listening public voted as the best hold music.

Here it is, give it a listen:

This award-winning jam can now be yours—for your phone system, or for your ongoing listening pleasure.
