Top Tracks: Production music picks for election and politics coverage
Labor Day weekend marks the traditional start of the general election, heralding in a series of debates, TV ad buys and campaign stops across key battleground states. Of course, most of the candidates this cycle have been running for years, with our election season getting longer and longer.
To help you prepare for the endless coverage of Clinton and Trump, plus all the local races in-between, here’s some production music tracks we recommend, along with playlists to audition, as you hunt for new music to help tell the story.
“Compete with Yourself”
For a change of pace, “Jim Brickman – Freedom Rings: Solo Piano” features many unique American classics richly performed on piano.
A rousing theme for election coverage, this track from Warner/Chappell Production Music’s “Politics Elections Patriotic” is designed to anchor the broadcast, creating a unique opening.

Looking to do an election image campaign? FirstCom’s “America Strong” could fit the bill with its unique lyrics.
While the general election will be over in a few short months, politics is always part of our countries spirit. The tracks we’ve recommended for the election would also be perfect for any politics-themed show, commercial, promo or segment.
