Show Them You care…With Valentine’s Day Stock Music Tracks From Tunefruit

Ahhh Valentine’s Day…the single solitary day each year when we get to show those who matter most in our lives how much they mean to us. No, we’re not talking about  our spouses, we’re talking about our customers! At Tunefruit, we love celebrating Valentine’s Day because it’s on this day that we get to showcase some of our favorite sweet and sentimental tunes- tunes that can help you build a long-lasting connection with the special men and women in your life you just couldn’t be without- your customers. And when your customers make a connection between you and these sexy Valentine’s Day sounds, they’ll be forever yours.

At Tunefruit, finding the right Valentine’s Day-inspired track is simple; not only do we have a wide range of lovely, romantic musical selections, but each track has been hand curated by a team of musical experts (and after listening to hundreds of hours of love songs and dreamy ballads to prep for the holiday, they’re really in the mood to make some serious commitments to some very lucky individuals)

But before you dive headfirst into Tunefruit’s vast ocean of musical-love, let’s talk about the three types of Valentines Day Tracks. We hope this makes your music search even easier.

The “Up-tempo, Energetic” Valentine’s Stock Music Track

Sometimes, Valentine’s Day can be a good time to tell someone, “I know we’re still getting to know each other, but I think you’re really swell.” If you want to show you care without coming on too strong, use a fun, peppy track like Brighter Day in you Valentine’s-inspired video.

The, “Candlelit Dinner” Valentine’s Day Stock Music Track

Who can deny the magic of a passionate evening spent in the company of that special someone. Whenever I hear a song like Valentine’s Romanza, it makes me want to do something nice for someone that means a lot to me. Maybe this Valentine’s Day, I’ll make a reservation for two at that new restaurant that just opened up downtown. I think it’s called, Fat Hank’s Rib Depot. Use this track in you video if you want to tell your customers, “You mean so much to me.” Ribs are romantic, right?

The, “I love you, marry me” Valentine’s Stock Music Track

This type of track is a real tearjerker. Every time I hear a song like Wedding Vows, I well up inside with feelings of tenderness, and cry out, “I just want to be loved!” Then I call in sick from work, put on sweatpants and eat and entire pint of Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream while watching Love Actually. Use this song in your Valentine’s Day track to tell your customers, “I want to be with you forever.”

So there you have it. This Valentine’s Day, we hope your heart is filled with love, and the bond you share with your customers is stronger than ever. Take these next two weeks to really evaluate your most important relationships because before you know it, the holiday will have passed you by, and you’ll have to wait an entire year for another chance to say, “I love you.”

And from all of us at Tunefruit, happy Valentine’s Day!

 

Tunefruit’s Guide to Halloween Stock Music! Spooky!

Tunefruit-Daily-Freshpicks

Many people know Halloween as the yearly festival where small children impersonate sociopaths in order to scam candy from their neighbors (jk…ok, not jk), but did you know that Halloween also has a rich musical history as well? That’s right, music is as big a part of the holiday as candy, paganism or psychopathy!

Now that we’ve established how important music is to Halloween, lets get into the different types of Halloween music…

Whether you’re licensing music for your Halloween-themed videos, or just trying to get into the holiday spirit, it’s crucial that you understand the differences between the three main types of Halloween tracks.

Halloween Track Type I: Kooky and Spoooooky

This variety of Halloween music is fun and quirky- it’s full of playful energy with just a hint of scary. This is the kind of track you might play while you and your kids are decorating the house before the trick or treaters arrive, or while putting together their costumes for the big night.

Scare-o-meter: 1-3

Check out some Kooky and Spoooooky tracks on Tunefruit here or here.

Or check out our favorite vintage Kooky and Spoooooky track, The Monster Mash.

Halloween Track Type II: Magical Wizarding World

This type of track grabs you by the hand, and takes you right into the dark underground tunnels and faraway castle laboratories where you might find Halloween characters like ancient ghosts, terrible monsters, or even Wayne Brady! These Halloween tracks are just a bit more serious and imposing than your Kooky and Spooky tracks. They’re full of magic and wonder, with just a hint of menace.

Check out some Magical Wizarding world-type tracks on Tunefruit here or here.

Or check out a perfect example of a Magical Wizarding World-type track from the greatest movie of all time, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!

Scare-o-meter: 4-6

Halloween Track Type III: The Terror is Real!

With this final selection of tracks, we are not playing around anymore: these tracks are 100% pure horror! “Oh my god! We’re trapped and there’s no way out!”…is what you might say if you were a character in a truly scary horror film, or if you were forced to watch an entire season of Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta. Either way, this type of Halloween track is sure to make you scream.

Check out some ultra-creepy Halloween tracks on Tunefruit like this one or even this one. But if you really want to see something scary, then check this one out….who thought these haircuts were a good idea?

Scare-o-meter: 7-10

So this Halloween, if you’d like to indulge in some ghoulish holiday tunes, be our guest! But remember, if you feel your heart racing, you’re not actually being chased by a knife-wielding maniac in a hockey mask and an awful cotton-poly blend. You’re just listening to some frighteningly realistic Halloween tracks. Enjoy!

As July 4th, the Fourth of July, Independence Day (whatever you might choose to call it) gets close (it’s next week!), we figured some folks might like to know where to look (and, of course) and find our collection of celebratory fireworks and hotdogs music.

Well, baby boy, we are delivering. Right here. Right now. God Bless America.

An old Irish melody re-jiggered for the modern era? This track sort of does that. With bits and pieces of modern instruments…think synths, drum machines, and more traditional strings and such, this track takes on an almost Thomas Newman (you know, American Beauty’s composer) vibe.

It pulses with ebb and flow at each little turn, and ends up being a totally killer contender for inclusion into your next film.

Tunefruit Daily Freshpick: The Real Thing

Epic, beautiful, driving…the words of every ad agency ad in existence…and you know what? This song delivers the deliverables. Big U2 and Tenth Avenue North (look it up, homey, don’t be lazy) guitar lines crash into big ole’ Coldplay pulsar drums and thick foundation-yummy bassline. Corporate America wants its rock big, and we want them to have it, too. Please, take my Rock (say it in a Rodney Dangerfield voice, and the joke totally lands).

Ya know….this track also has a serious Snow Patrol vibe going on, too. So here is a Snow Patrol vid. Get into it for a sec, I know there’s a long intro…jeesh.

Our fantastically fresh Tunefruit Daily Freshpick feels like it came straight out of a Stephen Stills record from the 70’s, and we totally mean that in a good way (not in our usually off-putting, but devilishly endearing way). Chegg out those just slightly hippy-ish acoustic guitars with a little bit of kick drum and smooth and yummy electric bass. I can totally see someone driving in their convertible up the Pacific Coast Highway (I’ve heard at least one Los Angelino call it the PCH…can I, too, or is that some super secret thing?) just thinking about how good life is while listening to this smooth California 70’s gem.

Looking for that nasty…that gnarly…that ab-so-friggin-lutely bar swill-ish rock with swagger for days and enough whiskers to scratch a mirror? Here. Take this track for a spin. Equal parts Jack White, White Stripes, Dead Weather, Black Keys, Yellow Feathers (I just made that up to see if you use google). It’s John Lennon to Kelly Clarkson’s Paul McCartney. It took 5 minutes to come up with that. But is was worth it. Because now you’re thinking about it. Yeah..it works. Anyhoo…this Royalty Free Music track is ready to be licensed for your next project. Stop playing around with WoW, turn FCP back on, and finish the dang project.

Tunefruit Daily Freshpick: The Final Battle

this track is really great

Hey. You. Yeah, YOU. Lookin’ for a John Williams type of track? Yeah? Cool…come here. Around the corner. Where no one will bother us. Man, this track has GOT it all…it offers sweeping strings, pulsing percussion, serious highs, and thoughtful lows…I can kind of imagine this track being used to sell the closing scenes of an epic and hard-won battle. Heck, on the end, you even have a bit of filler for when the dude finally gets the girl, the lights go up, and the credits roll. Enjoy. We know once you get taste, you’ll be back.

It’s Friday, chances are you reside in a place that’s cold, cloudy, and not the least bit summery. Tunefruit Daily Freshpick to the rescue. We’d like to welcome you on the Tunefruit Yacht for a quick cocktail (something with an umbrella), a little bit of sand, and most definitely, a much-needed respite from what will most likely be another 3-5 months of crappy cold weather. So, take a minute to enjoy the steel drums, shakers, and gentle bass groove and remember…Tunefruit keeps you warm at night…oh…hold…legal dept. says we can’t say that. Oh well, enjoy this royalty free music track anyway.
