This is a thread for talking about songs that people have used in their unicycling videos in the past, are considering using in the future, need an opinion on as far as the type of video to use it in, and other topics of that nature. Basically it is a place to discuss music related to unicycling videos, or songs that one might listen to while riding.
I need help with song choice, at the moment I’m making a sponsorship video but I can never seem to find a good song
The video is flat/street and has a fairly fun/energetic feel to it, so I’m thinking death metal just won’t cut it as a song choice…
So far I’ve tried “Just Can’t Get Enough” (black eyed peas), “Wild at Heart” (Birds of Tokyo) and “Addicted” (Bliss n Eso) but nothing seems to fit - or I’m just overthinking it and should pick a song
Anyone got some suggestions?? They’d be a real help
+1. Don’t take my word for it but I think he uses some music from snowboard videos, there’s a group called “Isenseven” and most of the songs they have used Raphi also uses. Not the well known songs like Kid Cudi but like “Salt, peppa and spinderella”. And all the songs fit their riding style!
In my last Video I tried to used different music then most unicycle videos and used the song “expectations” from belle and sebastian.
I dont know how songs like this fit in extreme unicycling videos so I am currious abour your opinions. You can watch the video here:
I think it’s one of my better song choices, so no one better steal it
I don’t really think any of this dark, heavy music really works in a unicycle video, or really any extreme sport video. I’ve only heard it fit the mood of the video once, and the bmxer was getting destroyed on every trick.
I tend to agree…You need to have a very, I don’t know…for lack of a better word “hardcore” video to pull it off - I’m definitely not up to the standard where I could use a heavy song and not look like I was over compensating.
I tend to think the same thing for a lot of rap/hip-hop too. While I have learned to thoroughly enjoy a few artists, I find that sometimes it’s just as heavy (in a different way ofcourse) and doesn’t mesh well with the videos.
I think songs like this can easy fit in advanced unicycling videos. Something I’d suggest for a video like that is to mute the video sound and leave the music undisturbed by loud sounds.
BTW, I think this thread could really take off as long as people don’t just say what songs they like and leave it alone. I also think it would be really nice for people to put links to the song they’re talking about like some people are now doing.
This song I think would be really interesting in a video to watch with good editing:
A clean version of this would be nice for, say, a day edit on a Saturday:
This song would be really good if I could make a good edit:
