A metronomic woodwind & string piece with or without the tic-toc track. Perfect for a 60 second commercial needing a steady pulse with a quirky yet musical melody that invokes the passing of time or a mechanical apparatus. Adaptable to any “tic-toc” situation or just for fun as a simple music bed. Instrumental, Dramatic, Whimsical Music
Happy and bouncy like the famous “Holiday For Strings.” A schmaltzy track like the generic orchestral pieces behind those old government safety films. Campy and funny, it’s the perfect underscore for any tongue-in-cheek video or film. Could also be a stand-alone campy theme from the 50’s or 60’s. Instrumental, Comedy, Novelty Songs
A fun track about a kid and his toy piano. First, he practices his melody, then uncle Ted jumps in on his banjo. After that, the rest of the family joins in on bass and drums. A great track for any kids activity or commercial (especially the edits) with kids playing, learning or just being kids. Instrumental, Childrens, Children Play Music
Busy, buzzing, fast, swirling, bees fly around doing what they do. A great track for a sped-up video or fast-moving commercial. Kids running around, playing or being mischievous. Fast-moving and buzzy synthesizer over a super-fast drum beat makes this the perfect underscore for anything... fast. Instrumental, Childrens, Childrens Instrumentals
Just like the "Men in Black," the Kids in Black need their own theme song too. Perfect theme for the young agents who keep the aliens in line. Fun sneaky beats also has a campy "alien-sci-fi" flavor. Kids comedy cartoon animation, a Junior Get Smart. 60s ray guns, investigations, kids snooping, Instrumental, Childrens, Childrens Instrumentals
A musical rendition of kids playing hopscotch. You can see them throwing the rock and hopping through the squares drawn on the sidewalk.
