THE MINI-ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PUBLIC DOMAIN SONGS

Music that’s in the Public Domain because the copyrights have expired – 800 well-known, well-loved songs that you are free to use as you choose in the United States. The emphasis of this book is on popular music, although some classical music titles are included. The titles range from “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and “A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody,” to “Auld Lang Syne” and ”Wedding March.” These are song titles that both adults and children know and love, music that’s usable in everything from advertisements to TV productions and educational projects.

THE MINI-ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PUBLIC DOMAIN SONGS
songs they never renewed
THEY NEVER RENEWED: SONGS YOU NEVER DREAMED WERE IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN

This our newest title! The music is in the Public Domain because the copyrights were never properly renewed. Ninety-six songs from the ’50s and ’60s that made the Billboard Pop Charts. This is, we believe, a unique book – no one has ever published a list of music that has gone into the Public Domain in the United States because the copyrights were not properly renewed.
