If you’ve been with us from the beginning you know I work in an office building full of accountants. It’s basically us and the number crunchers. EA holds floors 12, 17, 18, 19, and 20. We unfortunately have to share the same elevator bank with the rest of building. When the elevator doors open, it’s easy to tell if you’ve reached an accountant floor or a video game one.
EA pipes in music into the elevator areas on each of its floors. No one else does this in the building. Before Christmas, the music wasn’t very loud. After the holidays, they replaced the Christmas songs with classic 80s music. They also turned it way up.
The tracks they’ve picked are awesome. They range anywhere from the Go-Gos to Guns ‘N Roses. Several times, I’ve delayed pushing the button to call the elevator just to listen to a song a few more seconds. Today, I stood there like an idiot for almost a minute listening to Tarzan Boy. Yeah, I’ll admit that. Sweet Child O’ Mine!
