Choosing the right music for your videos

An important aspect that can help you and your videos make an impact on viewers is the choice of music in your videos. It's the music, along with your specific content, that creates emotions and largely influences how a video is received by your viewers.

Add a nostalgic feel with the song "Forever Young" by Tomas Stenström or the song "Mormor" by Dina Ögon for a more dreamy vibe in the video. Or maybe this beautiful "Outro" by Eric Gadd for ending a sequence? The possibilities are endless and you're the final creator of it.
