A lot of ISRAELI ROCK SONGS with Male Vocals are needed for several (up to) $5,000, NON-Exclusive, Direct-to-Music-Supervisor placements in a Hit TV Show on a Major Cable Network. She’s looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs for this Military, Special Ops-style show that has plenty of booms, bangs, and chase scenes.
NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Listing (TAXI # Y190527RR), but the Supervisor didn’t get enough material. She needs a nice, big stash for an entire season of this TV series! If you submitted to TAXI # Y190527RR, please submit different material this time around!
The Inside Scoop: This Supervisor knows she’s going to need a bunch of Israeli Rock songs for the upcoming season of this show. She’s building a “stash” in advance of post-production. She likes both of the references below and told us that both styles could work, as well as “anything in between.”
Please send Rock Songs that run the gamut from what we’re calling “traditional Israeli Rock” to harder-edged, testosterone-driven, Hard Rock (with some Middle Eastern flavor) that would work well in the action/shoot ‘em up scenes. Great songwriting, performances, vocals, and production are needed. All Songs need to be Broadcast Quality.
Lyric Tip: All vocals need to be in Hebrew, and it’s probably a good idea to go with lyrics that touch on themes like winning, victory, surviving, brothers in arms, fighting, and other battle-born concepts that would work during the “kick-ass” scenes. Political, religious, and love songs won’t work for these scenes, so please don’t send any of those!
For the more traditional (less hard-edged) Israeli Rock Songs, lyric themes can touch on a wider range of lyric ideas as they will likely be used as background source music in bars, car radios, hotel lobbies, elevators, etc. Again, political and religious songs probably won’t work for these placements, so please steer clear!
Below are references that “bookend” the spectrum of what could work in this show. The references might have political or religious lyrics -- please ignore them. The music is where you should direct your attention.
Sapari by Orphaned Land
Psalm 150 by MIQEDEM
