Delightful professional (free) music by Joseph McDade

Posted on Leave a comment

When I was looking for intro music to use in Dev Blabber podcast series, I came across Joseph McDade‘s work which was recommended by a famous podcaster. As one can see on his website, he’s produced only a handful of tracks. But each one of them is literally high-quality and professional. Clearly, a lot of effort and hardwork has went into creating such fantastic pieces. Hats off to the guy 👏🏻.

I ended up picking On The Verge, an ambient-rock piece from his first batch. Go check it out. And while you are there, check out his other tracks as well. If not for creative use, then for your own enjoyment.

Hurts Like Heaven

Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park
‘Do you ever get the feeling that you’re missing the mark?’
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
Written up in marker on a factory sign
‘I struggle with the feeling that my life isn’t mine’
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
See the arrow that they shot, trying to tear us apart
Took the fire from my belly and the beat from my heart
Still I won’t let go
Still I won’t let go
You
Ooohooh
‘Cause you do
Oh you, use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

— Coldplay’s song “Hurts Like Heaven”
