The way to get rights to use a song are by contacting the music publisher. Often you will have to two sets of rights if you want to use a recording: one from the music publisher (for the music) and one from the record company (for the recording OF the music).

Check out these three websites. Song writers and music publishers have to belong to one of these "performing rights societies" so you'll be able to locate the information on your songs from one of them. You'll most likely have to pay a fee for permission, even if you aren't using the songs to generate your own income. There is more information on each page.

Once you paid your fee and were granted permission, you could display that information in your youtube video and avoid having your videos taken down for copyright violations.
