We've taken the keywords we've heard most over the years and compiled all the info here.

Some basic guidelines to keep in mind:

  • In general, tracks with lyrics that are have positive messaging and are broad, general, and all-encompassing are easier to place.
  • No explicit lyrics please!
  • Whistles, group vocals, and vocalese are all very effective.
  • Pieces with many different "sections" tend to do well as they provide editors with more to work with.
  • Upload mp3s only until wavs are requested.
  • Upload both vocal and instrumental versions if available.
