Here we present the list of top 10 best Songs For Video Background-Editing in 2017
10. “All I Do Is Win” – DJ Khaled
This is a great track when you are introducing some sort of cool character into a scene, or when you are doing something really impressive in the footage you are showing. This is a song that is all about doing whatever it takes to get the win, and in essence, expecting to win because of how great you are. This song breathes confidence, and that is the most practical feeling that it should typically be used for when you do break it out underneath your footage.
9. “Kokomo” – Beach Boys
This is a great traveling kind of track. It is also a great song to use in any sort of scene that involves the beach, as this is one of the great hit songs from the surfer kings Beach Boys. This is also a great track for some honeymoon footage, as this an almost stereotypical honeymoon song. The reason it is so stereotypical is because it suits that kind of footage with both the lyrics and composition. So if it isn’t broken, don’t bother fixing it. If you have a scene or a video that would suit this song, use it.
8. “If I Ever Leave This World Alive” – Flogging Molly
This is a song that really has a couple of practical uses through the videos that you will use it or in independent films, and can be very powerfully used. First, this is a great “in memoriam” song for someone that is no longer with us. This about being grateful for a life that was lived, and for the person that helped to make it even better for the singer. Which leads it to the second use, for an epic and unconventional love song. There’s a reason that it was selected as an important track in the film P.S. I Love You.
7. “Radioactive” – Imagine Dragons
This is a song that has a lot of great instrumentals as well as a cool message that has a lot of good applications in a number of different kinds of videos and scenes. “Radioactive” on the surface is all about the changing of the world around us and finally coming to your senses about how much has changed in a negative way all around you.
6. “You’ve Got A Friend” – James Taylor
For every buddy film that has ever been made, there’s a quintessential friend track that has to be included along with the footage. No matter what age you are, or what the age of the people in the video that you are editing, you really can’t go wrong with some classic James Taylor. “You’ve Got A Friend” is a very recognizable track, and it’s something that a lot of people will already get the theme of as soon as the song begins.
5. “When You Wish Upon A Star” – Jiminy Cricket
This is a magical and inspirational song. When you are using this in the background of videos it would usually be used for children learning about things for the first time, or experiencing something magical for the very first time. It is also a great track for someone of any age having one of their biggest dreams coming true, as this direct connotation is right in the lyrics of the song itself.
4. “Sail” – AWOLNation
This is an electronic anthem that can be fitting for all kinds of different videos from action pieces all the way to a dramatic scene. With its unique cadence and delivery of the lyrics, you might find a way to incorporate the music itself to the changing of scenes in a rapid manner, which makes the song itself an even more powerful choice for your background music.
3. “Yesterday” – The Beatles
This is a remorseful track that speaks to wishing things were back the way that they used to be. This is an excellent song choice for the broken hearted or for something traumatic happening in an action sequence. This can be used in an ironic and funny way, like wishing things were back to yesterday when you didn’t epic fail with that skateboard trick, or a deeper and more meaningful wishing that you and the love of your life were still together. That choice is completely up to you.
2. “Shut Up And Dance” – Walk The Moon
This is a song that is more often used by only including its instrumentals. This allows for an exciting lightly distorted guitar that is bubbly and fun. If you use the whole version with the lyrics, this makes excellent music for the background of a party.
1. “Battle Without Honor or Humanity” – Tomoyasu Hotei
This is a powerful instrumental track that is heavily used. While this is usually done through battle sequences, epic sports moments and the like, you can find all kinds of practical uses for this kind of powerful track. Best of all, it is one of the free licensed tracks on this list to use.
These are some of the most frequently used background tracks for videos that are posted online and for those that are trying to edit larger projects and use contemporary musical flair in doing so.
