There is background music for every sort of occasion: Christmas background music is ideal for holiday parties or shopping centers that want to create a cheery atmosphere, while Halloween background music is best played during spooky events.
The influence of background music on the mood of listeners cannot be overstated. Happy background music can create a positive feeling while sad background music can stir up melancholy. Fast-paced background music played during an action film trailer can make the heart beat faster, while soft background music floating gently through a romantic scene can make the heart melt.
In our collection we have Tchaikovsky’s Christmas classic, “Russian Dance,” from the famous ballet, The Nutcracker, as well as Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee,” featured in a number of modern films. Listening to these songs is actually good for you! When it comes to exposure to music, research has found that classical tunes can stimulate the spatial pathways in the brain and prepare them for use. This makes the mind more active, resulting in higher intelligence.

In general, the power of music to affect listeners’ emotions should not be overlooked when choosing a background track. Various studies have examined the influence of music on the brain. Listening to pleasurable tunes can result in the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine, which is associated with a sense of reward, ideal for corporate videos or commercials.

How to use background music:
Background music as film scores
A unique, carefully selected soundtrack offers your film a professional, polished quality. Such a score can stay with the audience long after the film itself has ended. When selecting background music for your film, consider the emotional impact you want the music to have on viewers. If, for example, your film is a heart-wrenching drama, you may want to go with violin music that can deepen the melancholic mood. An inspirational and uplifting film, on the other hand, would benefit from bright piano instrumentals. You can create a playlist of your favorite film score tracks on PremiumBeat by clicking the “plus music note” icon to the right of the song title. Experiment by rearranging the music in your playlist, considering which tracks would work well as intro music that sets the tone of the film, as well as the songs that could build suspense or add to the dramatic quality during pivotal scenes.
Background music for trailers
The type of background music you use in your trailer will depend largely on the genre of your film. Action or adventure trailers that want to excite the audience can benefit from epic music that quickens the heart rate and moves viewers to the edges of their seats. Romantic or sentimental trailers can instantly inform viewers of the genre by including heartfelt, sweeping orchestral tracks. Because film trailers are only about two minutes in length, it is best to pull viewers in quickly. High-quality music can help achieve this effect by engaging the audience within the first few notes. You can find trailer music on PremiumBeat by searching by Mood or Genres. Any song you download from our music library will come with 15-, 30-, and 60-second clips of the full track, making it that much easier to edit into your trailer.
Background music for Youtube videos
Stay on top of the competition on YouTube by including background music in your videos. This music informs your followers that you have put careful thought and care into the creation of your content, which helps your audience trust that your content is worth taking the time to watch. When choosing background music for YouTube, look for tracks that can be seamlessly incorporated into your videos. PremiumBeat’s advanced filters allow you to search by Mood and Genre, so you can easily find tracks suited to your content. Makeup tutorials may want to use “Fashion / Lifestyle” tracks from the Mood section, for example, while gaming channels could utilize the songs found in the “Games” genre. A study-oriented YouTube channel would benefit from the addition of classical music. Research on the impact of music has found that listening to classical music can improve cognitive performance by increasing concentration and self-discipline. This helps viewers achieve their intended study goals and keep your channel in mind as offering high-quality content.
