Yes, lyrics can be distrac


Yes, lyrics can be distracting. Sounds like your idea of using kareoke CDs would work. Just one note of caution: There are copyright laws that apply to using someone else’s music in your own creations. Of course, just showing your videos to family and friends wouldnt be a problem, but putting them on the internet or having some other type of public showing might get you in trouble. Some music publishers provide royalty-free production music. These are CDs (typically costing around $40 each) which have music cleared for inclusion in your videos and films. I think this website has a link to some royalty-free music sources, some you might be able to get for free. I like to use music from , but you should be able to find several sources.

BTW, “royalty free” means you don’t have to pay a royalty fee every time your video is shown. It doesn’t mean that you can get the music for free (although I have seen some “free” royalty-free music).

Good luck!
