There’s nothing wrong with the classic Sousa marches that have accompanied the 4th of July parades for generations. Still, modern content creators and producers need a wealth of options to make sure they have a soundtrack that fits their project perfectly. Though this year’s holiday is destined to be different for a variety of reasons, there will still be plenty of advertisers looking to connect their brand with a sense of shared American pride. Of course, historical documentaries and podcasts, TV and web series, and other entertainment or educational media that focuses on the holiday will be produced too, and much of this will also require 4th of July stock music.
Create a Memorable Advertisement
Most ads attempt to do two things: Promote the products or services being offered and create a connection with customers that leads to repeat business. Music can help strengthen brand identity and make advertisements more memorable. Pair those benefits with a popular theme like American independence, and you’ll be well on your way to creating something unique that will stick in your viewers’ and listeners’ minds. Patriotic music for Independence Day–themed ads, including all-American delta blues and heartland rock, is the perfect way to tie your production together. Background music for Independence Day ads can range from catchy melodies that play up front in the mix, to more subtle backing tracks that won’t steal the spotlight from your script.
Teach About U.S. History
The 4th of July is also a time to remember and learn about our nation’s history. From the American Revolution itself to several important historical events over the last two and a half centuries, there are plenty of topics to choose from. All Mighty America’s Cinematic Music Album for production, and other similar playlists and albums, contain a rich variety of tracks that are well-suited for patriotic productions, whether they’re set in the modern-day U.S., or further in the past. Like with advertising, music can help your audience focus on your content, and improve the retention of information.
This comes in handy when you’re teaching about the Founding Fathers, the Civil War, WWII, the Civil Rights Movement, or any other relevant topic in U.S. history. Patriotic Independence Day stock music also includes themes, cut music, and sound beds that are perfect for TV shows and films that take place on the 4th.
