A style of music where the song being played can metaphorically walk into the listeners brain and sit on their figurative "brain-couch." Because the music is sitting on the couch and just resting in the listener's brain, it soon becomes a part of their psyche as they are listening, providing for a subconscious life-soundtrack of sorts.

The music is usually electronic, soothing, and includes subtle variations of numerous sonic elements over a consistent (and sometimes very complex) chord progression.

It is not uncommon for a listener of couch melodia to walk away from their music playing device with headphones in ear and drag their player off of their desk as a result of the misconception that there is no music playing.
