The power of music in Christmas videos cannot be underestimated. When it comes to video production, editing, and filmmaking, music plays a crucial role in setting the tone and evoking emotions in the audience.

Who doesn’t love watching a Christmas movie with a mug of warm hot chocolate?!

Christmas videos are known for their festive and joyful atmosphere, and carefully selected music can enhance these feelings. 

The right choice of music can create a sense of nostalgia, warmth, and excitement that is synonymous with the holiday season, and enjoyed by people all over the world.

Videographers and filmmakers understand the importance of incorporating music into their video content. 

It helps to establish a connection with the viewers and enhances the overall viewing experience. 

Whether it’s a heartwarming family gathering or a lively holiday celebration, the right musical accompaniment can bring these scenes to life.

Music also helps in creating a cohesive narrative within Christmas videos. It adds rhythm and pacing to different scenes, guiding the audience through various emotions and story arcs. 

From background tracks that subtly support the visuals to impactful musical moments that heighten dramatic or joyful moments, music has the power to elevate any Christmas video.

According to FiveThirtyEight, who analysed songs on IMBD, Jingle Bells has appeared in 373 movies!

Can you think of any movies this song has been in? What’s your favourite Christmas song?

In the Shot Blast Media office, we always get excited about getting into the wintery season and being able to start watching Christmas films!

We love singing along to our favourite soundtracks too!

The following three films have some of the most iconic Christmas music used in their soundtracks.

1. The Snowman (1982)

The Snowman is a beautiful silent film, based on Raymond Briggs’ book. It is the ultimate proof that a great soundtrack is what makes a movie.

The movie is composed by Howard Blake, and he managed to capture unbelievable soundscapes and detailing within the film.

The most known song from this movie is, of course, ‘Walking In The Air’, which is a wonderful piece of music that captures the essence of the film for everyone watching it.

2. Love Actually (2003)

This classic romcom, featuring multiple well-known actors, including Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman and Keira Knightley, has a fantastic soundtrack that its audience loves!

One of the most enjoyed pieces of music from this movie is Bill Nighy’s iconic ‘Christmas Is All Around’, which I’m sure everyone sings along to in their living room!

3. Elf (2003)

Another quintessential Christmas film, which stars Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf, the protagonist of the movie.

Set in New York City, this Christmas staple features multiple wintery songs, including ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ and ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’.

I bet you can’t help but sing along!

In addition to Christmas soundtracks enhancing emotions and storytelling, music also contributes to brand recognition for businesses. 

Companies often use specific songs or melodies in their Christmas videos as part of their branding strategy. 

This helps create familiarity among viewers and strengthens associations between the brand and positive holiday experiences.

Creating Christmas themed video content for your brand or company is always an engaging way of getting the attention of your target audience, and accompanies your business increasing website visits, leads and sales.

In conclusion, when it comes to creating impactful Christmas videos, videographers should not overlook the power of music. 

By carefully selecting appropriate tracks that align with the desired mood and message of their video content, they can create memorable experiences for viewers during this festive season.
