Eddie Fagrante: 50's-style Up-Beat Baritone Song
Hi, I'm auditioning for the role of Eddie Flagrante. I need suggestions for songs that would relate to this character. He is a sleezy, wild reporter who will do anything for a story. He has an intense and asply speaking voice. His song "That's the Beat for Me" is a Sinatra-esque cabaret style song. "Expose" is an almost latin-style song with operatic vocals. He is a baritone, as well am I. Preferably the song should have a 50's feel to it, but the main focus is just an up-beat male vocalist who isn't afraid to scream some of his lyrics when hegets excited.
Here is a YouTube link to the song "That's the Beat for Me" off of the official album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K59s0Qw6 ... re=related
Here is "Expose": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lu_rmGtH ... re=related
My director originally suggested "Mack the Knife" by Bobby Darin, but this song just isn't up-beat enough, it doesn't showcase Eddie's character enough for an audition.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
