O2 Hold Music - The Playlists!

[ Edited ]

Hey everyone,

As much as everyone hates being in a queue, sometimes it's unavoidable when it's busy... Whether it's a queue to get into a gig, the cinema, the shopping tills, or when calling for support. That's why at O2 we put a great deal of effort into choosing the best music playlist so you can get your groove on while you're waiting.

Our playlist changes a little over time but we're frequently asked "what's that hold music?" - here, on Twitter, on Facebook. So we'll be using this thread to update you on our most up-to-date playlist every quarter - or sooner, if there's any major changes.

2015 - Q4
1. Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know
2. Paloma Faith - Upside Down
3. Stereophonics - We Share The Same Sun
4. Stevie Wonder - Signed Sealed Delivered
5. John Newman - Love Me Again
6. Beck - Blue Moon
7. Brandon Flowers - Crossfire
8. James - She's A Star
9. Gary Barlow - Let Me Go
10. The Vamps - Wild Heart
11. Foxes - Holding onto Heaven
12. Mogwai - Teenage Exorcists
13. Rumor - Dangerous
14. Chvrches - By The Throat
15. 1975 – Girls

Requests / Suggestions
Recent and upcoming acts at The O2 help inspire our playlist but we want it to be as fresh and upbeat as possible. Our fantastic telephony team are watching this thread so if you have any suggestions, feel free to post it here. We can't guarantee it'll be possible for varying reasons but if we can do it sometime in the future, we can certainly look into it.

Thanks for that post @Chris_K

 

Sometimes it bugs me when I hear a song and don't know what it is - now I know where to look next time (if I am in a queue to O2).

 

Some good tunes and some debatable tunes - but that's just my opinion.  I think it is an ok variety of songs.

 

Maybe some newer songs wouldn't go amiss (e.g. Bruno Mars, Adele, etc) and maybe some more classics (e.g. Tom Jones, Tina Turner, Simply Red, Roy Orbison, etc).

 

At the end of the day, O2 customers aren't all from one age gap nor from the same taste of music so there has to always be variety Smiley Happy

It's just static and noise on my Phone because it's transmitted too loud. Nearly blew a hole in my ear when I was placed on hold today.. Smiley Mad .
