Royalty-free music.

This post will explain how to find your perfect track.

Couldn’t we all use tracks from royalty-free music?

Video is trendy in 2020.

The use of video is considered a must and no longer an option for marketers.

Music enhances videos. There are many types of videos you need to accompany with royalty-free music so you don’t risk getting sued.

This post will tell you how to find your perfect track for all these reasons:

– YouTube vlogs/Vimeo video,
– wedding clips,
– promo reel, video ad,
– tech review,
– software demo,
– game streaming,
– video tutorials and courses,
– travel videos,
– corporate videos and events,
– presentations,
– films and series,
– audiobooks,
– podcasts,
– plenty of other projects.

Popular songs of famous artists are not a solution as they include a hassle with author rights and fees.

Besides, songs with vocals are not always appropriate, probably quite the opposite. Where would you even get such music?

The case is that there’s a high demand for background music out there.

You need royalty-free music.

You don’t want to be blocked by Copywrite restrictions.

You don’t want to live in fear of getting sued.

Where can you find free tracks?

Use this guide to find your perfect track.

Here is Where You Can Find Royalty-Free Music

I like Pop, so I clicked the Pop Category.

Royalty-free music: TakeTones

Note: These are all background music for videos as the explanation at the top points out.


Can you imagine someone singing lyrics while you’re trying to explain in a video tutorial? No!

Lyrics would equally mar a travel video if you’re trying to offer a tour of a city or landmark in your video.

The title of the screenshot is “Royalty-Free Pop Music.” This, of course, means that you don’t need to worry about getting sued over not having rights to the music.

From left to right: You can preview the music, see the length of the track, check out the licensing, download the music, and add the music to your favorites. The number at the far right shows you the number of loops and versions.
