Music wanted for old movies

Mike Matei / February 2nd, 2009

The music police have hit YouTube, all of a sudden. In the past month, several of my videos have been blocked for music copyright claims. They’re mostly old movies from my Cinemassacre channel which I plan to host on Blip anyway, but it would be nice to get new original music. Here are some of the videos I’m looking for new compositions. I’m not really looking for any specific style, just whatever works. It would obviously help if you can see the videos, but unfortunately, they are only available as quicktime files right now. Like I said, YouTube’s being a bitch.

If you have something that fits, or want to compose a new score based off the videos, then send an email to [email protected] with subject “Music.” Naturally, I’m opening up a flood gate, so please don’t feel bad if I take weeks to respond, or don’t choose your music. It could always be handy to have spare music for the future.

Movies I need music for:

The music problem was over the ZZ Top song in the beginning. I’m thinking to replace it with the original “beer man” song heard at the end. But it may be a good idea for you to watch over the video and redo any other parts that have music in them. All I’m looking for is original compositions. Nothing specific. I don’t really care too much about these movies. Download it on Quicktime.

The dispute was over the Black Sabbath song during the end credits. Most of this movie was all royalty free library music anyway. But there’s some Pink Floyd in there and other stuff, so just be creative and wherever you hear music, feel free to compose something original that complements the scene. Re-score the whole thing if you want. Fuck that library music, who cares. Download the quicktime file here.

This one should be self explanatory. Just one good upbeat track. Download the quicktime file.

I hate to see White Zombie & Type O Negative go, but oh well. Just check out the video and lay down a fresh track for me. Oh and that beginning classical theme is just stock music, so yeah, I’d like to hear something new. Download the mpeg or whatever the fuck it is.

For this, I just need a cover of the TMNT theme song. I’m not 100% sure if a cover version will help with YouTube’s copyright policy, but it’s worth a try. Please try to keep it in time with the original song. There’s specific edits made to the music and lip-syncing, so it should match up. Download in quicktime

WELCOME TO THIS WORLD (Primus music video)
Again, I think we need to go with a cover version. There’s some lip syncing, so I see no other way than the song being “Welcome to this World” by Primus. You’ll either have to be familiar with the song or find it somewhere. See what you can do. Download movie in quicktime

Thanks in advance for anyone wishing to help. All I want is to quickly and painlessly get these videos back up. It’s frustrating to have to go back and re-edit old shitty videos I made, back when I was editing with two VCR’s in the first place.
