Does any1 re-use songs for more than one wedding highlight video?

Found a really nice song I like a lot and I want to use it again. I've never told any of my brides the song would be unique to them, but anyone can see all of my vimeo videos on there so I'd imagine they might feel weird if they saw their song used somewhere else too?

Ugh! Not sure what I want to do.

I do it all the time. I use the Music Bed, and buying 5 licenses is the most cost effective way to do things.

Slowly, as I've dug through their site more, I've found more and more songs I like to use, and I will try make sure all of them aren't the same, but in the end, so what. As long as the music you choose fits the footage, its good.

Of course, as long as you don't do every single video the exact same...

Yes. Just as long as the first 3 videos on your Vimeo page aren't the exact same song. Spread it out a bit.

I personally never do this as I want my prospective clients to feel that their wedding film will be totally unique. If they look at my portfolio and see samples with the same music I think it will send a different message. Beside there is so much great music available for licensing now.
