Hey guys! One of the youtube channels I really enjoy watching is the SacconeJolys and I find that the creator behind it, Jonathan Saccone Joly picks some really great upbeat, uplifting, happy musical tracks but I couldn’t find any resource online where someone listed the names of the songs he uses, so I went on a mission to try and find out myself! After reading online that a lot of youtubers get their music on a website called “Audionetwork.com” (#not_a_spon/ not an affiliate), I had a browse on this website and found most of the songs Jonathan uses (as well as finding some songs that other youtubers use too). If you stick the title of the songs below into the audionetwork site’s search bar, the song should come up and you can listen to the whole song within their website. I’ve also added links to each song for a shortcut way to get to the specific song you’re after on their site.
So without further ado, below are the songs I’ve found so far that I’m pretty sure I’ve heard and loved on the SacconeJoly vlogs. (And yes, there are a lot more songs on this list than I thought there would be! He uses more than I realised!)
