Comical, Quirky

These themes can be used as background music to create a comical or more subtle, tongue-in-cheek underscore. It’s a bit of a mixed bag of styles, we tried to select music that would suit a variety of projects, but the overriding factor is the music’s ability to create a quirky, light sensibility.

Shag Party
Purchase

Shag Party is a quirky Mid-60s throwback – kitschy, like Austin Powers – “Shag Baby!” It’s fun, danceable, and upbeat and makes for a great game soundtrack. Austin Powers notwithstanding, the word SHAG refers to a popular 60s dance, The...

Fun Times
Purchase

Great old-time stride piano style. Fun Times sounds like a silent movie soundtrack. Fun, upbeat and a little slapstick like a Laurel & Hardy, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin film. There’s also a touch of Paul McCartney Beatles-era tunes like Maxwell’s...

Meditating

You’ll think you’re in a film with Brigitte Bardot circa 1966. This bright and charismatic lounge track features an alluring vocal melody and creates a 60s-era caricature or bit of kitsch. The overwhelmingly good-natured groove makes a great opening theme...

So Happy You’re Mine creates a positive and upbeat mood. A buoyant melody played on guitar highlights the track. Affirming, Glad, Happy.

Halloween
Purchase

A light and fun take on Halloween. Otherworldly yes, but these are nice ghosts and nice goblins. The sounds are based on the 8 bit chipset of retro game consoles like Gameboy. Would make a great game or app...

Waiting For Viktor
Purchase

This track has a Balkan or Eastern European charm. There is maybe a hint of mystery here. The lead instrument is a Greek bouzouki or balalaika. It evokes movies like Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel. This is one of those quirky tracks that can work in many...

Lotsa Love

A bouncy, quirky, unabashedly happy tune played by acoustic guitar with mandolin accompaniment. This sound is popular in TV advertising because of the playful, spontaneous vibe that’s...

At the Prom

One of our best 1950s tracks, At the Prom is the slow dance. It’s got that classic doo-wop triplet feeling. This tune immediately sets a nostalgic mood, looking back over...

Pleasure

This upbeat mix emulates the 8 bit chipset of early video game music (think Gameboy). This would make a great app or video game soundtrack. The track is bright and...
