Finding the right music for your YouTube video

When choosing a music track for your YouTube video, there are three basic aspects that should be considered:

  • Music should underline the emotions in your video
  • Music should reflect the dramaturgical development of your video
  • Music should leave enough space to add speech (if required)

To help you quickly find music that is ideal for your video, we have done the groundwork for you and prepared the tracks and the music collection so that you will find the right music for your video without having to search for hours.

1. Conveying emotions

Music is an excellent instrument to convey emotions. You can use this fact to your advantage in your video by selecting music that optimally underlines the mood in your YouTube video, e.g., exciting, heroic or funny. In our music collection, we have sorted the music into moods, so you can quickly find the right music for your YouTube video: Royalty free music by moods

Here are three examples that convey a certain mood:







2. Reflecting the dramaturgical development of your video

Reflect the dramaturgy of your YouTube video with royalty free music! If your video builds up to a climax, for example, the music should also build up to a musical highlight. In this way, image and sound are harmonized and enhance each other.

You can cut and rearrange our tracks as you please, so that your personal edited version harmonizes perfectly with the dramaturgy of your YouTube video. If a music title is available in several versions, you can also combine multiple versions of a track to create the soundtrack for your video. In this way, you can create a soundtrack that is perfectly tuned to your YouTube video and conveys the dramaturgy to your customers by using a combination of image and sound.

3. Leave room for speech

If you want to integrate narration into your YouTube video, make sure that the music leaves enough room to insert the speech elements. A common practice is to make the music quieter in the places that contain speech, but even then, dominant solo instruments may drown out the speech. For this reason, most of musicfox’s tracks are available in several versions, and are mixed in such a way that the effect of speech can be fully appreciated and the advertising message in your YouTube video will be heard by your customer.

All you have to do is listen to the different versions of a musical track and decide which of them allows sufficient space for the spoken parts of your production. When you purchase a license for a music track, all versions are included. You can therefore try out which version is the most suitable. You can also combine multiple versions in your project to create the perfect mix by cutting them so that the music is optimally embedded in your YouTube video.
