Easy listening is really just a commercial radio demographic that gives 40 something post mid-life crisis sufferers a soundtrack to ruminate over their regrets, could-have-beens, and whether or not they still believe in life after love while they pound terrible coffee and consume mass quantities of donuts and antacids inside their cubicle universe.

Well, I don't know, maybe this is easy listening (I guess that depends on the mood)



Is this, like, what schlager is in Europe?

According to Larst.eff em, this is considered Easy Listening. But, I currently think Toby Driver's music is fucking scary. Kandu Vs Corky and Brown Light Upon Us will forever give me nightmares.

Lady In Red is absolutely fricking awful but it is easy listening I guess!

Best Lounge/easy listening track for me:



I listened to this 4 times in a row this morning walking to work!

This comes a very close second:
