A wonderful celebration to elevate the heart and soul! Smooth tribal male solo opening with a strong brass and timpani fanfare opening, with solo piano and trumpet enhanced by a rich African tribal male and female choral influence. A real feel good factor, foot tapping, emotional. Mixed Vocals, African, African Contemporary
This is a dramatic and powerful short piece straight from the devil's lair. Jumpy and skittish. Violins screech and hover against a background of demonic vocals. Timpani bound in and just when you thought it was safe - BAM - there is a dramatic quick stab of chords. Gotcha! Vocal Samples, Dangerous, Dark Music
Whistle that tune-it's a classic! Catchy and jaunty short version of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony - whistled by a chorus of great whistler's. Ending with the words.. 'yes we do! Great for a positive, upbeat, foot tapping (yes foot tapping) TV and radio commercials. Male Vocals, Corporate, Corporate Pop Whistling
All is not as it seems in this haunting piano music. It all sounds so romantic and soft but there is something not quite right-you can't put your finger on it as the music slows down in a thought provoking and suspenseful way then - BAM - evil is released in stabs of orchestral cacophony. Vocal Samples, Dangerous, Dangerous Music
Regal, religious and passionate music that is influenced by church choral music. It is a beautiful mix of African and English Choir - multi ethnic, global and all encompassing. The music and voice build and build to spread a message of hope and salvation across land and sea. Mixed Vocals, Spiritual, Inspirational
Solo female artist - Roz. Slow, haunting and beautiful pop ballad to reach out to those in love. Piano, acoustic guitar and drums provide a wonderful backing to very pure and innocent vocals.

Hauntingly beautiful piano music reminiscent of Ludovico Eninaudi & Ennio Morriconi. Contemporary classical with piano blending with oboe into powerful orchestra chorus & lilting vocals at 58 sec. Can be edited to use piano without chorus or both for a great TV theme tune, contemporary folk dance. Mixed Vocals, Soundalikes, Ennio Morricone
This song is about disillusionment and isolation but with sense that there is hope for the future. Lydia stands at the gates of tomorrow waiting to see if there will be hope or pain or sorrow... who can say. Great opening for indie film or closing credits. Its a song of our times for our times. Female Vocals, Indie Rock, Indie Rock
Haunting orchestral music mixed with indigenous drums and percussion ending with mellow piano. Slow and suspenseful using haunting choral and striking re-verb kettle drums. Ideal underscore for tv and film or introduction to a corporate presentation. Mixed Vocals, Dangerous, Edgy Music
Slow rock track full of emotion and regret but wanting to do something about it instead of feeling sorry for yourself. This has a great orchestral backing to the electric guitar and strings that move hauntingly throughout the melody. Very catchy chorus which would work as a great underscore. Female Vocals, Indie Rock, Indie Rock
This song is about searching for the best in things and people and holding onto what is good. We are all looking for something beautiful to hold onto and call our own in this life. Great lyrics that would work well to picture-catchy and moving. Light and delicate yet with a rock feel. Female Vocals, Indie Rock, Indie Rock
Very dark and tense orchestral score which will keep you on the edge of your seats. It is demonic which hints of Satan. Very evil and is not a piece to mess with as your characters creep around in intense fear. The beat of drums mixed with brass adds to edginess with vocals and repetitive piano. Mixed Vocals, Dangerous, Edgy Music
English Children from England singing the popular traditional nursery rhyme ten green bottles which is fun a lively. They sing it all the way for 10 to 5 green bottles. Great as a filler for a historic kids drama in the school playground. Childrens Vocals, Childrens, English Vocals
Background mood cue, ideal for bright and sunny tv commercials and radio commercials. Sits in the background to enhance the visual rather than getting in the way. Vocal Samples, New Age, New Age Electronic
Great family TV and film closing credit sequence or chase sequence. Jazz band funks it up with police sirens and keyboard which makes for a funky song about a secret agent. "Whatcha gonna do when they find out that its YOU - secret agent". Finishes with a shattering of broken glass! Mixed Vocals, Dramatic, Whimsical Music
This solo Spanish guitar piece accompanies beautiful and ethereal voices. The music is slow, sultry and calm which becomes quite hypnotic. A very sensory composition ideal to describe the natural world - clean, crisp and clear yet rich and deep. Vocal Samples, Dramatic, Calm Mellow Music
Sound alike of 'Just can't get enough' by Nouvelle Vague. Original by Depeche Mode and sung by The Saturdays. Upbeat sunny song with no lyrics. Tropical, sweet song. Light female vocal oooh's and la la la's make this a refreshing little piece enough to quench anyone's thirst. Female Vocals, Pop, Acoustic Pop
Strangely comforting start which then immediately breaks out into ghostly vocal effects with stark, dry rhythmic drum beats. Then the background is intermingled with demonic whispering voices to make the hairs stand up on your neck. Terrifying underscore describing pure evil. Vocal Samples, Horror, Horror Ambience
Upbeat song like a school pep rally, we are the best lyrics. Great for a corporate event to get the staff motivated and energized. You know you're the best and this song says it all. "We are the best and we're better than anyone else out there". Great as a cheerleader chant out on the football field, Mixed Vocals, Corporate, Corp. Pop Easy Listening
Light contemporary rock. Looking back over the years - did you dream of what you wanted to become? Did you achieve your dreams and make it? Did you not listen to your loved one and did she walk out on you? You want her back - you plead for her to come home as you don't want to be alone. Male Vocals, Pop, Pop Ballad
Male solo style about wanting to trust his partner who throws it all back in his face. He wanted to believe in her but she destroyed the relationship. It wasn't what she said but what she did. There is nowhere else to go - he wanted to trust her and wanted all their dreams to turn out real. Male Vocals, Pop, Pop Ballad
80's sound alike of song 'She's a Maniac'. Pure electronic and synthesized disco - think Starsky and Hutch mixed with psychedelic sci fi with a bit of 'Fame' thrown in.'Cheesy pop' with male vocal and leg warmers. Great for comedy disco dance routine or comedy romance. Male Vocals, Pop, 80's Pop
Whoops what have you done? You think you've got away with it but with a crash of glass you are exposed and the sirens are getting nearer-you've been found out. A bumbling secret agent makes all the wrong moves and trys to cover his/her tracks Great comedy caper theme song for animals & humans alike. Male Vocals, Comedy, Comic Song
An amazing full-on organ and choral piece. Dramatic yet heavenly as high soprano voices fill a huge auditorium in chant and song. It starts quite calm and serene and builds up to a crescendo as the magnificent organ gives power. Fabulous sound track for cathedral, historic, period, dramatic themes, Vocal Samples, Classical, Classical Choral
