Some really good stuff on here. Especially some of those orchestrated classics like Midsummer's Night Dream (wedding song): http://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary Newgrounds, some you can use, but if unsure, check the description or mail the owner: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/ Also, added by @Glup: http://www.audionautix.com/ There are certain tracks that are under creative commons.

The cheaper licences usually appear on sites like Bandcamp and Free Music Archive, or you can get written approval from an artist you like. Don't be expecting JayZ to mail you back though, he will probably be expecting a Huuuuuuge sum of cash. Also, for those on Mac you have plenty of Garageband music and loops that you can use! And you can customise it to fit your video by dragging your finished video without music into garageband and drag and drop the loops! Or if you are really talented, you can use programs like "Fruity Loops" and "Apple Logic Pro" to compose music for yourself Here's an introduction to fruity loops done by the one and only OneyNG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExOhRhvrt5o If you have anymore you can share, please say! Always more welcome on the list :-D This post was Tweeted,Google+ posted and was given a shoutout on a video by the makers of Yttalk (@Michael). Please applaud one of the greatest youtube community websites there is out there! :-D A community that cares!
