Choosing Your Audition Song
A great tool for finding audition songs, which I have recently discovered, is the Showtunes channel in Music Choice on digital cable. (In my area it's channel 637 on Time Warner.) I listen to it when I'm just puttering around the house; you never know when they're going to play a cool showtune you've never heard before!
You also need a 50s/60s song or two for those Grease and Hairspray calls. If you can sing rock and/or pop, you need a ballad and an uptempo rock/pop. If you can sing opera, you should have an aria or an operetta song.
If you can sing country and you're going to be auditioning for country shows like Big River, Always, Patsy Cline or Robber Bridegroom, you need to have a country song. And it's best if you do stuff that not everybody's doing, because they will get tired of hearing "If I Loved You" sixty-six times a day.
There are lots of rules about what you should and shouldn't do, but
I've seen people break the rules and get callbacks, so I guess rules
are meant to be broken. One rule of thumb is you can do an overdone
song if you do it better than anyone else. Unfortunately, most people
in this business think that they can do it better than anyone else.
If your coach is worth the money you're paying him or her, though, they'll
tell you the truth. Choose an audition song that excites you and you are inspired to sing.
