Last week I shared my picks for the best and worst airline hold music. Among my picks for worst was Turkish Airlines, with their “we are Turkish Airlines, we are globally yours” tune. It’s both catchy and annoying, much like a One Direction song. I posted this link to the song to give those of you that have yet to call Turkish an idea of what I’m talking about:
Then just a few days I suggested we form a Turkish Airlines hold music support group, because this song is seriously haunting me, day and night.
Well, things just got worse, because reader Sloan forwarded me a link to Turkish Airlines’ press website, which has links to all their “tunes.” The bad news? The website has the “Globally Yours” song exactly as it’s played while on hold. Go to this page and scroll to the third song from the bottom, which reads “Globally Yours 30sec.” That’s exactly the 30 second clip they play on the phone, over and over and over.
And in case that doesn’t satisfy your cravings, that page also has the Ramadan, Ethiopian, Manchester, sport, and mystic versions of the “Globally Yours” song, among others. Yep, Turkish takes this $&^# seriously!
On the plus side, your week can only get better from here…
