    Do you have a specific song and artist in mind? Or are you looking for something more generic? For the generic route, you can look at something like Magnatune ( or Studiocutz ( If you are looking for something specific, it really depends on a number of issues, like who owns the rights.

    Yes, I wanted America "You Can Do Magic".  They talk about copy infringement but where and how can you buy the right to use the song.  2005 Warner Brothers.  I wanted popular songs the other song would be Survivor "Eye of the Tiger"  Song BMG Music and Take it to the Top" Cool and The Gang" UMG.  I bought them from Rhapsody.

    Go to the ASCAP site, where you can get the specifics for who to contact for each song. What's the scale of this video - internal to company, external, commercial use? Because that will also determine cost and availability.
