How to Find the Perfect Vlog Music to Soundtrack Your Content

Platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat have provided fresh ways to create content, but the trusty old vlog still works a treat. Whether you’re just starting out or are an established content creator, people love to watch vlogs.

Here are some quick tips for finding the best vlog music for your content.

Follow the below steps to find the perfect background music for vlogs

  1. Open the Epidemic Sound Player – if you’re not signed up, you can grab a 30-day free trial here.
  2. Think about what kind of tone your vlog music should have. The content you’re making is most likely upbeat, so try searching for specific moods like Hopeful, Happy, and Laid Back.
  3. Think of the kind of genres that would make the best background music for your vlog. As much as we enjoy a bit of German happy hardcore every now and then, it’s probably not going to hit the spot. Try looking for genres like funk, folk, soft house, or modern Latin.
  4. If you’re struggling for ideas, why not dig into our specialized vlog music page?

A pro tip for finding great vlog music

The top vlog songs for your content

Bonsaye - Komodo

Bonsaye loves a hi-hat or two. Komodo is a chilled-out, repetitive deep house track that doesn’t build as much as it digs. Across four minutes, the track runs through variations of a beat via phasers, sampled vocals, and steel drums. Effortlessly cool, and the perfect background music for a lifestyle vlog.
