Platforms such as YouTube or Facebook detect if the music that your videos carry has rights , so you should think about it very well when choosing the songs you want to add.
To avoid problems and remove your content from this type of platform, today we are going to recommend 13 pages where you can find thousands of songs that can be used freely.
- You can download the songs for free
- There are no licenses to buy
- The vast majority can be used for commercial purposes
One of the strengths of ccMixter is that you will not have to make a user account to download the songs . In the upper right there is a search engine in which we can enter a specific term.
