There’s something sinister about eerie and somber music that sets the heart to pounding as pulsating, dangerous music fills the listener’s ears with ominous, dramatic and haunting music akin to the mythological Sirens’ songs.
Bands in stadiums across America frequently feature the opening four notes of The Addams Family theme song with dramatic chords dominated by a harpsichord. Melodramatic finger-snaps, a triangle, wooden block, a slide whistle, a duck call and Lurch’s voice punctuating the lyrics were all used to simulate dramatic horror music back in the ‘60s. Though sports fans have replaced the finger-snaps with shouts of DE-FENSE, the familiar music sets the stage for the intrigue and suspense that follows.
Patriotic Music is hopeful music; filled with reflection, drama and triumph. Devotion to one’s own country and sense of nationalism runs deep as evidenced by the multitude of America-themed songs on the newly released album American Spirit. American Spirit, and the others mentioned here, embraces uplifting, orchestral marches with poignancy and majestic intensity. Heroes, heroines and those who have lost their lives come alive in Patriotic Music with beautiful, touching music scores thoughtfully composed. Sweeping solemnity and joyous celebration combine to form Patriotic Music—ideal for dramas, marches, memorials, tributes or documentaries.
Let Freedom Ring
Herald the arrival of Independence Day with the album American Spirit and let freedom ring! One of the most recognizable songs on the album, America the Beautiful, is sung in sports stadiums and many other venues around the country and is enjoyed for its dignified, stately and patriotic theme. The USA has her own brand of specialty music with fan favorites like marches, Dixieland, folk and ragtime. This album is ideal for historical productions, documentaries, political projects, tributes, biographies or any project needing a traditional, patriotic theme.
Poignant Military Music
Military-themed music is often heard during tributes, memorials, marches, biographies, documentaries and a host of other events. Military music is known for deep, brooding and poignant musical tributes which honor solemn, yet often inspirational and heartwarming occasions. Hearing military music often causes the listener to touch their heart, bow their heads, stand quietly or salute the ever-present flag. The music is hopeful, triumphant and emotional.
Royalty Free Patriotic Music music isn’t limited to just the old favorites, like Sousa march Stars and Stripes, though Smartsound does feature a very lively, dignified version, thank you very much, or vintage Yankee Doodle Dandy. It also brings the spirit of America alive with regional specialties like Dixieland, ragtime, marches and folk music.
