Something light with no vocals, what are you favorites? I'm writing a new story and need background music. Any suggestions?

Prokofiev "Romeo and Juliet".
Or anything by Tchaikovsky.

check out "Spring Waltz OST by Yoon Jae Ha" (fictional main character). It's the soundtrack to a 2006 Korean K-Drama TV series. Beautiful piano music with original compositions by Yiruma and Chong Park. There's a deluxe edition with both the TV series soundtrack CD and classical piano music CD. That's the one to get.

Without question, "for the love of a princess" from the Braveheart soundtrack by James Horner.

Mark Knopfler. Especially from the Princess Bride OST.

Oh, definitely, I already have it, and have used it unfortunately, but if only I could find more like it....

I know you said no vocals, but if you can ignore the first and last tracks, why not try 'Sense and Sensibilty', especially track #9.'Sirens' by Rachel Portman is lovely and quirky,'The Lover' by Gabriel Yared,
or maybe 'Rambling Rose' by Elmer Bernsein.

I realize I'm coming in a bit late, but just in case you're still looking for more (and I'm a writer myself and self-confessed soundtrack junkie - and add to that I've been working on a romance scene too and used a lot of these):

~The 10th Kingdom by Anne Dudley (particularly tracks 2, 7, 15, 19, and 22 - great if you liked The Princess Bride!)
~Braveheart by James Horner, just a few tracks, and I totally support the previous mention of "For the Love of a Princess" - it's gorgeous
~Meet Joe Black by Thomas Newman, quiet and beautiful
~Pride & Prejudice by Dario Marianelli if you want semi-classical
~The Holiday by Hans Zimmer if you need casual romance
~The Time Machine by Klaus Badelt has a few tracks that can work
~WALL-E by Thomas Newman (tracks 5, 22, and for sadder moments 28, 35 )

OH, Nicole, where were you! I have to check out the 10th Kingdom, I don't have that, and I just discovered The Holiday. I never thought of Wall-E, but I'll check it out! Got a new book going...

A SUMMER STORY by Georges Delerue. CD is impossible to find, though.

Try "Sketches" by Khoruts. It is pretty light, romantic, somewhat longing, and fairly unknown.

I've always highly enjoyed Ambient One by American Dollar, parts of which were a score to "Officer Down"

Aria 51 says:
"Six Days,Six Nights"-By Michael Nyman is a great example of "beauty in simplicity"
Check it out:)

The score for "Becoming Jane" is very romantic in my opinion. Beautiful music!

Check out A LITTLE ROMANCE 1979

Try 'Anna and the King' from 1999 by George Fenton.--:)---- (his best score IMO, after the successful 'Ever After' and 'Dangerous Beauty' nominated for an oscar in 1997 or 98)------------- Many score critics rave about the 'Anna and the King' score, yet it is pretty unknown, I know not why. I have never seen a post on it here on Amazon.---------The movie itself and the 'love story' between Anna and the King is closer to historical fact than the much better known 'King And I' musical with Yul Brynner.-------------The score is long, completely instrumental and inexpensive. The 'execution' scene is one of the most effectively scored scenes I have heard (tears were shed)--:)------The love theme is the best theme in the score, though there are several others done well including the epic title theme which has that large orchestra sound.-------------Enjoy!

I collect soundtracks for the same reason--writing stories. My favorite composer is Hans Zimmer--I especially like the DaVinci Code and The Last Samurai soundtracks. Red Warrior from the Last Samurai gave me an entire book out of that one piece of music.

What kind of story are you writing?

To be succinct, 10th Kingdom is phenomenal!

"Lily Was Here" has a great soundtrack. It's out of print but you can still buy used and even a few new copies here on Amazon. Just check out ALL of the listings because some copies are expensive while others are quite cheap. The film has only one soundtrack though, so all copies are the same.

edit: Two songs have vocals, but they are both soft.
