Tips for using royalty-free music
The following suggestions can help you make the most out of our music library.
- Add contrast. Sometimes, the most effective way to add joy to your project is to have other emotions present before or after to give it context. Using other feelings like angry or sad music can make the happy music that much more effective.
- Choose your flavor. Happy music is a general category with a lot of variety in it, ranging from subtle contentment to bursting jubilation. Be sure to choose a song that resonates with the type of happiness you’re trying to convey.
- Trust your audience. Modern audiences are smart and appreciate authenticity and subtlety. Be careful not to overdo it by screaming the concept of “happiness” into your audience’s face with happy music and happy colors and an overly sweet voiceover. Simple is often the best choice.
