List of Light Music Bands and Artists   : Vote for your favorites.

Light music is a generic term applied to a mainly British musical style of "light" orchestral music, which originated in the 19th century and continues until the present day. Its heyday occurred during the mid‑20th century.

The style is a less "serious" form of Western classical music, featuring through-composed, usually shorter orchestral pieces and suites designed to appeal to a wider audience than more serious compositions. The form was especially popular during the formative years of radio broadcasting, with stations such as the BBC Light Programme featuring a playlist largely consisting of light compositions.

Occasionally known as mood music or concert music, light music is often grouped with the easy listening genre, albeit this designation is misleading. Although mainly a British phenomenon, light music was also popular in the United States and in continental Europe, and many compositions in the genre are still familiar through their use as film, radio and television themes.
