OK so I admit it.. I have liking for the music of Bert Kaempfert. Love the Trumpet playing of Fred Moch and Charlie Tabor and of courseLadi Geisler's iconic Bass playing I have no reasonable explanation. I just do. How 'bout you lot?

Manilow's Copacabana and Cindarella Rockefeller by Esther and Abi Ofarim, though if I give either an airing on the jukebox at one of my two favoured local watering holes goodwill isn't exactly in abundance.

I don't feel guilty, but I'm glad to see this thread. Kaempfert is nice. I like Paul Mauriat (Love is Blue, etc.)

I recommend Joseph Lanza's book Elevator Music: A Surreal History of Muzak, Easy-Listening, and Other Moodsong. Kaempfert, 101 Strings, Mantovani etc. are mentioned.


I also liked background music you can hear when you push some buttons in a hotel room. It was otherworldly, almost scary sometimes.

"I'm not in the least musical; I don't own a record player or a single cassette. In fact, I used to be the despair of my girlfriend when we traveled because I so clearly enjoyed canned music and used to turn it on in hotel rooms. But the subject is fascinating - all part of mood-control. [...]" - J. G. Ballard (Elevator Music, Lanza)
