Christmas carols make easy royalty free music projects

Need some inspiration for your next round of production music tracks for Productiontrax? With so many Christmas carols in the public domain, it’s no secret that Christmas music is one of the most popular royalty free music genres out there.

However, that doesn’t mean we have too much. Companies and media producers around the world are constantly looking for fresh takes on the old classics. Afterall, Christmas happens once a year, every year. As one of the biggest holidays (ever), it makes sense that demand is so high. Clients are creating electronic greeting cards, holiday videos, goofy office party presentations, and so on. A new royalty free holiday track is a useful one, and probably one that sells.

So, my friends, take another sip of egg nog, light the yule log, and crank up the volume to 11 and prepare to Deck the Halls like no music artist has decked them before.

Just remember: just because it’s a Christmas song, doesn’t mean it’s fair game. Be sure to check that the song you’re planning to reinvigorate is actually public domain. To help you out, here are some public domain classics that are ripe and ready, and some not-so-public domain songs that are off limits.
