Generally I’m not a big fan of music playing in the background of a web site. You just never know if the visitor might be sneaking a peek during a staff meeting or having a sleeping child nearby.
But sometimes music can be fun. Recently I created a fun online holiday card for a resort and we used some music in the background. To do it, I had to find royalty free music and I thought I’d share the site:
We used a clip from this Christmas site: http://feelslikechristmas.com It was free.
For a wide range of music: http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-free The music is free, a donation of $5 is suggested, which is darned close to free.
Another good range, of fee-based music: http://www.musicbakery.com
