Uplifting IdeasSmartSound’s Heartwarming Royalty Free Pop Music brings it together, fleshing out all that is heartwarming in terms of uplifting, positive and motivating, with Rock’s happy-go-lucky offspring, Pop Music.

It’s then joined unobtrusively by string beds, like two opposites attracting each other, but still tentative. Pop Rock and strings make for a great relationship and this track turns up the joy fast, building to the climax of the story just in time for a Short Film.

If your story indeed sees the couple out and on to other things, Gold works, and the hopeful tone indicates they’ll be wiser, if sadder. As always, though, the storyline could take a twist. Once they’ve well and truly let go, they may, in the future, see it was what they really wanted all along, and the kind parting words leave the door open.
