    I need a clip of music - couple of minutes - to play in the background under someone talking. For the Brits, think the muzak they used to play during the conveyor belt part of the generation game and that's what I'm looking for

    It needs to sound 70s and not distract too much from the speaker.

    Ideas? I've even attempted to look in Garageband for an odd loop and am still flummoxed...

    I'm not sure how well this will go down (heheh) but I think your best bet would be to source some retro-porn from the '70's, if you're lucky... you might be able to nail some without the moaning. ;)

    Giggle... I love the idea of the 70s porn movie. Just imagine what I'd say to my boss when he asked where I dug it up.

    We did the Generation Game stint today and just skipped the music in favour of a couple of mp3s of Brucie saying 'Cuddly toy!' and such like

    You'd be well on your way to earning 'Dirty Girl' status in your office that's for sure. :p

    And I was just about to suggest that you snap up an el' cheapo 1970's Bontempi organ off eBay. They used to have preset 'Porno Demo' songs built right in!!! heh.

    I think the album To-day's Sound by Piero Umiliani may be exactly what you're looking for. It's on iTunes, but it's also available from eMusic.com, so if you sign up for a trial you can get it for free (assuming you're not already a member). Try the songs "Safari Club," "Truckdriver," or "Blue Lagoon" If there's nothing on that album that's quite right, try some of his others, like Il Corpo.

    If that's not it, try The Sound Gallery. It's a collection of music from '70s British TV, but I don't think it's on iTunes or eMusic.
