Where to get sound tracks for video?

i got my k-7 a few days ago and so far i've played with stop motion "video" but will definitely get into shooting real video soon that i would like to share the clips on youtube.

however, i'd like to sync my videos to music and that's where i am already running into copyright issues. youtube scans both audio and video for copyrighted material and either issues a warning or disables the video if violations are found.

what i'd like to do is find a LEGAL source sound tracks i could use in my videos. does anyone have suggestions for how to go about this?

search for "royalty free music" this is public domain music with no copyright. Also if you have a local pro-audio shop in your area and you feel the need to waste some cash, you can purchase "royalty up front" music loops and tracks for about $100.00 USD and use the music to your heart's content forever.
