At the beginning I'd like to thanks for this place - it's awesome!
I tried to find music that is suitable for car show, the cars are classic, from 60's and 70's (motonostalgia) in Poland.
I've got over 300 pics but i'd like to make show with 30 or 40 best cars because I'd like to focus on some details of that cars and I'm just wondering if instrumental from 60's will be nice or maybe with lyrics telling about something... and I don't know the tempo...
Maybe somone got any ideas...
Thanks in advance.
I just did a show in the late summer of my '73 Corvette as I sadly parted with it after a 38-year relationship and used Sonicfire's Motor City Jam from their Full Spectrum album, which worked nicely. The great thing about Sonicfire music is that it is not only royalty-free but you can also choose any length you desire. The quality of the music is pretty good for royalty-free also. I don't know if the track would be the tempo you want or not.
You can hear the track here:
Oooh it's so sad
We've got in Poland/Europe shows, exhibitions very 'sentimental' ones; the cars looks as they were just brand new:) Owners just love them. We have classic car and oldtimers clubs - that's all very inspirational for me.
In Europe we have 'different' cars I've got youngtimer 21yo BMW 325i and it seems that I'm as emotionally attached to her:) as you
That's why music is so important when it comes to making memorable shows; they worth of it - thank you very much for your suggestions for american's beauties.

I think you're also on the right track by asking about tempo--that's what that effect is all about, music creates an emotional feeling around the images. Get that right and you've got "wow".
Obviously for a show cars music that's a bit bright, light and fun might work. Something to suggest speed maybe or something to suggest the emotional attachment to the car or... lots of potential here. For me, this step is one of the hardest ones in the whole thing, and I really only get it 'right' with a lot of trial and error. I also find that which tune I use isn't all that important, it's all about tempo and how it feels.
I've got many types of cars from many countries and finally I've decided to match the music from these countries to the cars are originated. And the type of the cars matched with the type of music - for example if this is race car - music tells it - plus some sound effects mixed with music. And the tempo as you said must be right.
50 minutes show with several 'chapters' seems great.
Instrumental is more suitable generally but in some 'situations' vocal makes the feel. With suitable words of course.
But I agree with you - in balance: background/foreground.
Instrumental is more 'imagineable' for me.
My second show (about 20 minutes) is in trance style. I've filtered pics with a bit 'dreamy' filters. Only instrumental is ok for me in this style. So all depends on the style you choose, I think.
