Pop it Like it’s Hot
Edgy pop music is the way to go when productions require a driving, energetic or wild beat. Pop music is often eclectic or borrows elements from other music styles including rock, urban, dance and Latin, though there are common elements to pop music. Edgy pop music can be bold, raw, jagged and dissonant, and employ repeated choruses, melodic tunes and hooks to catch the listener’s ear and draw them into the song. Edgy pop music is great for youth culture, romantic sitcoms, viral videos, promotional videos and high-energy ads.
Guitar is king in Pop Royalty Free Music; whether acoustic, or electrical, jammin’ wailin,’ or whispering tenderly, it’s never far from the forefront. Smartsound’s pop music section revels in guitar glory, solid melodies and lavish arrangements.
Fun, bluesy Guitar Au Go Go, from solid pop rock album Pop Flight, steps right out with a quick nod to ‘80’s megahit “Venus,” then struts out in its own edgy direction with instruments taking their turns to keep the melody rocking.
Like dub music, Hip Hop developed first as a purely instrumental offshoot of African-American music, in the 1970’s. Part of its origin was block parties in the Bronx area of New York City, where DJ’s started isolating the percussion breaks of popular funk and soul music songs.
Vocals in the form of rap, breaths, or monosyllables were added over the top, and a whole new style was born. One legend of the origin of the term has rapper Keith Cowboy mocking a friend who’d just joined the Army with the nonsense phrase “hip/hop hip/hop” to mimic the marching soldiers.
SmartSound’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.
From Jangle Pop comes sweet, expansive ballad, True Desire, which starts out quietly and pensively with Indie guitar riffs. 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.
Royalty Free Pop Music reigns king as the biggest category ever in Smartsound’s library. Pop elements show up in everything from kid’s fun songs to gospel to hard rock. Depending on your point of view you could say pop is where music has been destined to go over the centuries, given its almost universal ability to lighten up the spirits of even the most dreary mood!
Vocals always add a confident note of energy to any musical interlude. SmartSound’s Vocal Royalty Free Pop Music brings out the full range, from pointed, spot-on lyrics to soothing background syllables that are themselves an atmospheric instrument.
echoes in the lyrics “We gotta move on.. I wish you love..you are gold, but you’re not mine.” Driving acoustic guitar background moves towards the inevitable conclusion, at least for now, of this relationship. 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.
Indie music, or music produced independently from the big record labels has a reputation for quirkiness and eclectic qualities. A little bit of the do-it-yourself spirit often shows up, while the style may fit into different genres. Indie Royalty Free Pop Music from SmartSound is always smooth and sprightly, while keeping its stylings unique and unpredictable.
Pop Rock for the 21st century takes in even more ground than during its birth centur(ies)—Indie music has formalized a mid-ground reaction to Heavy Metal and super-sweet teeny-bop, and ballads continue unabated with synthesizer and electronica embellishments. Count on SmartSound’s Pop Rock selections to add whatever piquant note you need for video projects ranging from TV/Film dramas to offbeat Commercials to a more transparent style of Corporate videos.
