Survey says: Grab their attention!
The most important qualities for really top-notch quiz show music are pretty straightforward. Firstly, the ability to capture attention is crucial. Something exciting is about to happen, so make it snazzy! Tap into that feeling of flashy fun. Secondly, it should conduct audience emotions about the contestants’ performance. For the most part, the viewer should be cheering them on. After all, the beauty of a quiz show is that it could be you up there! And finally, it absolutely must ride a big wave of tension right up to its release. The viewer should be dying to know what’s going to happen! Is it the right door? Will they get it done in time? Did they bid enough? In short, no matter what the contestant does, it should feel like a crazy gamble. And really excellent quiz show music makes that feeling come through crystal clear!
Music is the strongest link!
In reality, quiz shows are chock full of great music. But it’s a genre that rarely gets the respect it deserves. The tracks are undeniably diverse, well-crafted, and memorable. The best ones quickly become embedded in pop culture. In any case, each segment of a game show usually has its own sound to tell the audience what’s happening. Additionally, when the game changes or a new round starts, segment transition tunes usually kick in. Whether a contestant is winning or losing, the best quiz show music will mold the viewer’s mood in just a few seconds. Moreover, all the really great theme tunes interweave the winner’s music into the credit rolls. It’s a sure-fire way to get the audience feeling optimistic and happy no matter what just went down. Essentially, a quality quiz show needs a handful of variations on their theme to serve a few purposes.
