Bold and PowerfulFrom heroic to haunting, Bold and Powerful Royalty Free Music from SmartSound builds the drama with styles ranging from classic-sounding orchestral to angry electronica.

From Fun & Games comes a ferocious Hard Rock selection, Beehive. Not for your mama’s genteel garden video, this slammin track is more at home in Sports Footage or Commercials. Drums and Electric Guitar pound out a steady, driving beat with a few vocals thrown in, set up for roiling around in the background without a lot of melody to it.

Funky Royalty Free MusicFunky Royalty Free Music is all about the beat and groove, with the accent on danceable smooth. It de-emphasizes melody and harmony, with bass and drums predominating, and electric instruments thrown in. James Brown is called the father of funk; when he originated the style in the late 1960’s he took elements of jazz, soul and R&B, and streamlined them to create the funky sound that’s still just right for any scene needing a cool boost.

Check out Smartsound’s Slam Funk, for the gamut of what funk is about. Friend or Funk, billed as funk for the new millennium jams R&B Band with Organ breakdown to punch up Product Videos and On Hold music. This pulsating track is slick and edgy. Pump up action and chase scenes with Funk Proof—driving guitars and piping hot organ give the track a punchy Motown vibe.
