This video here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK0gYi1YEZ8) is the song, but I don't know the name of the song nor do I know of a place to get a royalties free version of it. I am trying to make a football promo to this song and any help is welcomed!

I don't think that song is Royalty Free , we had to pay just to use 10 seconds of Twinkle Little Star , try www.RoyaltyFreeMusicLibrary.com

the song is called Infernal Galop , " how good am I " :)

when you say football do you mean soccer

Peace

there are two copyrights involved with music.

1. the composition
2. the recording

In this case as the composer Jacques Offenbach died well over a century ago the composition is public domain.

As far as the recording goes you just need to find one that's old enough to have fallen into public domain.

I think in the US it's 70 years and UK 50 years but that may have changed as there's been a lot of debate about extending it recently

or just do what cresshead said but it'll sound a bit synthetic compared to a real orchestra recording even though the orchestra pack for garageband is pretty good.

actually as the clip on youtube is from 1943 you're probably in the clear ripping that if you don't mind the audio quality.

Well Jacko only had publishing (I think he actually sold it to Sony in the end as he was in trouble with money) which I think still won't expire until 70 years after the death of the composers. (in this case presumably BOTH composers)

It's only the recording which expires 50 years after event.

The name of the song in your o.p. video clip is "The Galop" written by Offenbach. :dance:

It's also known as "Galop Infernal".
