Unhappy techno sucks



What is with the soundtracks to alot of these car videos. Every single car video i see on every bmw site; maxbim, bfc, dtm, etc. , all use the same type of techno music as there background. It all sounds the same and doesnt go well with the visuals. Its always some girl singing in the background about how "we will be together sometime in our dreams" or some similar shit and then bass blaring soon thereafter. Im so sick of the same stuff in these videos. Ill admit techno works and goes well with driving sometimes, but there is never any variety in the soundtracks of the videos ive seen. What do you guys think. I know some of you guys must feel the same way.

i understand what you are saying yet it is hard to use a rock or punk song that will go along with the idea of the video because of the lyrics.

One question, have you checked out the new video on maXbimmer titled "Autocross?" I think you should because it doesn't use techno music

Cheers!

Yeah, well to tell you the truth it really depends on what kind of video you're making. For rock, it seems like it requires continuous and fast action footage. It'll look odd featuring rock music and you have cars just cruising or parking in parking lots. Don't you agree too?

Well it's just one reason and I'm sure there tons of other pros and cons to using rock music for car videos.

What about slow rap and slower techno, for the parking lot scenes? All I'm saying is there is alot more music out there and people don't use it.

rap wont work...i tried, slower techno? is there such a thing??

the music is called trance...

i hate it when ppl call it "techno"

trance suites it a bit better also because the car is euro, trance is euro...get what i mean? rap music suites cars rollin on dubs downtown cruisin slowly....rock is best when ur doing smoke shows/tearing it up abusing a car...get wat i mean?

I dont listen to techno and dont know the exact terminology but you know what i meant. Lots of music will fit into the videos, im just looking for some variety. The videos are monotonous when it comes to audio.

i'm pretty sure metal fits on to any type of video.. i played metal over a few of the videos.. suprisingly i think Cradle of Filth "Cthulu Dawn" fits perfectly over the Bliss video heh

I made a thread about this before.
It changed nothing.

Lousy trance.
