Music is an integral part of everyone's lives. Every celebration and every event involves music in some way. However, custom soundtrack services do things a little differently. While these services might be used for background music in a movie, they can also be used in all of the following ways to set the tone for these events.
"Roasts," or comedic events where friends and family poke fun at the person being "roasted," are very popular as charity events. Money is raised for a good cause, while everyone eats good food and has a good belly laugh at the expense of the person being roasted. A custom soundtrack set up in the background to a series of film clips only adds to the entertainment, and possibly, with the right music tracks, more comedy as well.
Playing "THIS WAS YOUR LIFE"
Special milestone birthdays, particularly your sixty, seventy, and seventy-fifth birthdays, are a good time to drag out the old TV show, "This was your life!". In the forties and fifties, this popular TV show examined the life and times of famous people and special people who had done amazing things with their lives. It could easily have been the very first "reality" TV show of its day.
If you are planning a special milestone birthday party for someone, you could produce this TV show with your birthday person in it. Then create a custom soundtrack, announcing that it is "the soundtrack of your life!". The soundtrack plays as each special moment in picture and film slides across a movie screen. The best part for the birthday person is that family and friends who did not know certain things about you would learn something new, and be amazed at all you have done with your life.
Music is played at weddings, but it is also played at funerals. A custom soundtrack of the deceased person's favorite hymns or songs can play softly in the background during the viewing of the body, and then after the funeral for the procession. The soundtrack can be played again graveside as the body is lowered into the grave.
If you know that a loved one would enjoy this addition to his or her end-of-life celebration, be sure to discuss it completely. Then hire a custom soundtrack company to create the unique set of recorded tracks. The recorded music is filed safely away until that day arrives.
