Every week the staff of Dare Dreamer FM picks five Creative Commons songs that are free to use in your productions. You could do this work yourself, but it takes a lot of time. Since we do it anyway as we look for CC music for Radio Film School, we share our favorite discoveries with you. Enjoy!
This Week’s Picks
For me I love listening to a simple melody when I go walking. Especially during long walks, either through the middle of a forest of on the open plains. With these melodies, I tried to find the tunes that instantly put you in the car as you drive down the sun-kissed rolling hills or in those woods filled with light and sound as you enjoy the solitude, left to your thoughts and dreams.
A simple melody but with a nice jaunty tune, it makes you want to take a nice stroll to your local coffee shop, regardless of the weather before you. Josh Woodward – Once Tomorrow CC-BY
I chose this song because of the simple guitar music and the very relaxed vibe it has. Perfect for listening on your own or putting into a film when a character really is sitting in front of a bonfire, watching the flames dance as the sun is setting. David Mumford – Bonfire Music CC-BY
This was chosen for great presence. Great for transitions in films, for the characters and for scenes. Very inspirational while giving a soft, warm feeling. Kelly Latimore – Armitage CC-BY
This is the second song on my list from Josh Woodward. The moment you hear this song, you see the sun rising on a new day. That there is some sense of hope, or that achieving the impossible is perhaps not so hard. Why its named the last slice of Pecan pie, I will never know but to me the song makes me want to ensure I snatch that last piece up before its gone. Josh Woodward – Last Slice of Pecan pie CC-BY
As the title indicates, the day is coming to close and the twangs of the guitar indicate that the last remnants of light stretch forth to remind you of what has been accomplished and what stands ready for you the next day.
Jason Shaw – Autumn Sunset CC-BY
