i know we are a little late for you but for those out there in the present whose creativity are dampened by legalities, do look out for royalty free music as they are affordable and most clear you completely to use with no other extra fees.
Alternatively search for free royalty free music. http://www.jewelbeat.com/ where I am attached with has over 500 and counting free music and effects to help you start out.
