Background Music:
1) Piped-in music heard in stores, doctors' offices, factories, restaurants, etc.. It is to be heard but not to the extent where a conscious effort is made to listen to it. In work environments it is played to enhance productivity.

2) The subtle "mood" or "atmospheric" music used to accompany motion pictures and television shows. It is other than theme or feature music.

Background music is used to cause a psychological or physiological effect on the audience, e.g., to emphasize the action taking place in a motion picture.

Background music suppliers have a library of thousands of selections. They are offered on CD, FM sideline, and by satellite transmission.

Bed:

Recorded background music. It most commonly denotes the background music for the announcer's voice in television and radio commercials. See Cross-links: SYNCHRONIZATION, COMMERCIAL BROADCASTING.

Canned Music:
Any music already written, produced, and recorded that was not made specifically for, but could be used as, motion picture soundtrack or background music. It is also called "needle drop," and individual fragments are called "cues," or "bridges." Cues can be purchased from music libraries and are categorized by classes, e.g., comedy, chase, or neutral. See Cross-links: SYNCHRONIZATION, PACKAGER.

.
Commercial Song:

A song that has been, or has the potential to be, a mass marketed song. These songs may or may not have artistic excellence, but bring immediate results with regard to revenue and prestige to those who exploit them. Their immediate mass appeal lies in their special imagery and catchy melody and/or lyrics which usually contains a hook. Some may have an element of mystery (e.g., in a love song). They usually are contemporary and have an identifiable style or feel, but sometimes their appeal lies in their fresh and unique quality. Also, the timing of the release to the public, the appeal of the artist who initially performs the song, the amount of airplay it receives, or the effectiveness of its distribution may all be determining factors as to whether or not a song will have commercial success, i.e., be commercial. See Cross-links: COMMERCIAL, COMMERCIAL RECORDING, SONG, HOOK, MARKET.
.
.
Dramatic Music:
1) Music composed for a theatrical stage performance.
2) Music performed concurrently with a theatrical stage performance.
