Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Help me pick a song for my audition

I have an audition for a show choir next Monday and one of the requirements is a 1-2 minute excerpt from a song of my choosing that is Broadway or jazz standard.

I'm way more familiar with Broadway than I am with jazz, so suggestions for Broadway would be helpful. But you could also suggest a song that I might not know and if I end up liking it and it fits my vocal range I may end up using it.

Just so you know my voice type is a bass/baritone, so try to avoid those tenory solo songs that most male characters have in Broadway musicals.

Thanks

Re: Help me pick a song for my audition

I don't know if you will be able to get much help about that here on these forums. I can't help you personally.
What about the songs you already know?

There's a nice lil list for ya, if you're into lists.  I'm partial to anything from The Wiz - Slide Some Oil To Me by Nipsey Russell is a fun one.  Break a leg!

Re: Help me pick a song for my audition

My favourite musical is Blood Brothers, I recommend all songs https://open.spotify.com/album/2aCuSO3TAzyIe3xAUgI0ml
I worked in the production side in a performance for school - amazingly sparse of hands so I ended up doing everything in the back.

The first songs are mainly female, but there are some other songs that could work for you maybe

I'm Not Saying a Word https://open.spotify.com/track/6wPOiBciMzbb8AyGWrRKgS
Long Sunday Afternoon / My Friend https://open.spotify.com/track/0uQATTrehWSzJfk8LjDyNu
Take a Letter Miss Jones https://open.spotify.com/track/3pwgE2PWJ52D9Xls3GdsSl

Found a 1989 recording on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9mbfRiZ2Bk (same production as 1995)

Here's a nice jazz ballad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C80tOrKTt6M


Currently playing through: Mega Man 1-6

Listen to my in-game music! (it's pretty much all I'm good at)
