Matthew’s big list of public-domain songs

Hey,

Due to popular demand I’ve decided to make this public. It’s my list of music-works that are essentially free to use (commercially and non-commercially), by virtue of either being a folk-song (and thus belonging to “the folk”), or because they are so old they precede copyright and are generally accepted as public domain. This can help save you a lot of time when scouting for music to use in your film/game/podcast/etc.

I have compiled this over several years, and add interesting titles whenever I stumble upon them. Since I picked these from all kinds of different places there are no unified sources.

Some notes:

  • While a certain title might be public domain, most modern recordings are NOT. Kilgary Mountain is free to use, Metallica’s cover Whiskey In The Jar is not.
  • Due to this I advise just creating an own version. It is possible to create something reasonable with simple audio-software (i.e. Guitar Pro) and some sheet-music.
  • I take no ultimate liability for this information. It is supposed to point you in the right direction. While I am fairly sure of the availabitly of these songs, I implore you to check for yourself. In which case you might very well end up saving a huge amount of time and/or money anyway.
  • This list is by far not final. In fact there are tons of more pieces, these are the more “popular” ones. Go dig through some Chopin-CDs for the truly underused (und underrated) stuff.
  • There are few games with a primarly classical soundtrack (Flotilla, Unstoppaball DX). Other games often add these in a few places. In Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines, for example, a “high class”-character has some Beethoven running in his room.
