So You NEED Music
Then You NEED to make sure it's ROYALTY FREE

You NEED to learn about Creative Commons:
  • A system by which artists provide you with assets that you are WELCOME TO USE IN YOUR PROJECTS, subject to specific conditions (like giving them credit)

Why bother using CC instead of "popular" music?
  • No complications - The assets are typically ROYALTY FREE
  • YouTube will not "censor" your uploaded projects
  • No one will challenge the legality of your work if you submit it to a contest or sell it to a client
  • Creative Ethics - Your success is legitimately yours, and those you give credit to

Here are a few sources of Royalty Free Music:
