Does anyone know the song from "The Switch" that plays while Jerry and George are working on the roommate switch and also when Babs meets Newman on the street?

Sounds like just some generic, royalty-free sound clip that's been used many times before... or maybe it's from a well-known movie we've all seen. But it doesn't sound like an excerpt from any "song."

Yeah, I have a feeling that, just like stock footage, there is maybe "stock music" that doesn't have a copyright on it (either because the composer has been dead for a certain amount of time or whatever). Unless it's an actual score from a movie, you could probably get lots of un-copyrighted background music.

There is endless resources of royalty-free music of virtually any style. They simply write it, record it, and sell it. It's usually very repetitious and seemlessly looped so it can be played for an indefinite length of time.

Just watch any porn movie, for example. Very Happy

I'm sorry I'm not familiar with that term.

I have wondered this same thing for a while - maybe the Seinfeld DVD for that season will answer it. I have always felt they are clearly parodying some movie, but apparently nothing I have seen.

i don't think they're parodying any particular movie per se... more like the film noir genre in general.
