“People say elevator music is boring. It’s actually very next-level”

"Elevator music” (background music) is usually popular, conservative music, but a joke has it that the music is “next level.”

“I like listening to elevator music as i take you to the next level” was posted on Twitter by Skippavelli on May 4, 2011. “Elevator music is going to the next level” was posted on Twitter by luke on August 24, 2012. “People say elevator music is boring.

Wikipedia: Background music
Elevator music (also known as Muzak, piped music, or lift music) is a more general term indicating music that is played in rooms where many people come together (that is, with no intention whatsoever to listen to music), and during telephone calls when placed on hold. There is a specific sound associated with elevator music, but it usually involves simple instrumental themes from “soft” popular music, or “light” classical music being performed by slow strings. This type of music was produced, for instance, by the Mantovani Orchestra, and conductors like Franck Pourcel and James Last, peaking in popularity around the 1970s.

It’s actually very next-level.
