I really like this instrumental, but I can't find its name anywhere. Not even Shazam or Soundhound. The youtube channel Watchmojo uses it for the mysterious videos. Here is an example: https://youtu.be/IzxQW9EB4Bw

For me it sounds like it is just a nice warm synthesizer pad with a drop-down kick added before the synth, not really like a whole song...

It would make sense for mojo to NOT use a foreign probably copyrighted song or composition, if they only use two seconds of it (Creating this intro sound need much less time to make than a whole song)

But if you want to find more similar sound or songs like this, you could search for «Synthesizer Pads» which is the art of creating ambient / sound-collages with synthesizers.

Here is a little example of a synthesizer pad from the legendary «Prophet 6» synthesizer which sound awesome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtjcMp2tqpc

  • By the way, the synthesizer music that you sent me is delightful, but I am confused with your answer. Are you talking about the intro? Because I am actually talking about the background music that plays throughout the whole video that I sent. You are right in the fact that watchmojo tries to use unpopular soundtracks to avoid copyright, but I have been able to find some of them. The one I am talking about is the one that I can't find, but you can clarify me if I'm wrong in something. Aug 19, 2019 at 17:58
  • Yeah, sorry was not reading it properly ^^ I thought you ment only the intro card sound of watchmojo But would be glad to help so do you have a timestamp where the background song occures? Aug 20, 2019 at 7:55
  • Hi, sorry to leave you waiting. It is the background music used throughout the whole video, while the narrator is explaining. You can listen to the music clearly from 9:16 to 9:27. Watchmojo uses the instrumental for video with mysterious/creepy topics, like these other examples: Aug 26, 2019 at 21:41
