In contrast, in the totally weird corner of corporate music...

    MUJI was a Japanese product line of packaged food and various other household products. In 1983, they opened their first stand-alone store, commissioning Hosono to compose background music for which to play in the store. Supposedly only one of the three tracks was ever used, and the original cassette release, as aforementioned, only contained two of the three tracks.

Haruomi Hosono is great. I made a pastiche of (i.e. ripped off) a track he was involved with when I did the sound/music for this animation (nsfw):

I don't think I can do better than your description of "totally weird."

The comments on this one occasionally do better.

    This music is appropriate for a shop that only sells like owl figurines and one human skull.
