Audition Materials

We Will Rock You – Audition Materials. 

The guide track will give you something you can practise along with and the backing track should be used to record along to in your audition video.

If you are auditioning for a different part that involves singing, then choose any of these 3 songs as your audition piece. For call backs for Galileo and Scaramouche we would like to hear Who Wants To Live Forever.

Galileo

I want to break free. Verse and chorus. Roughly 57 seconds in the backing track. Lyrics are :-

I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You’re so self satisfied I don’t need you
I’ve got to break free
God knows God knows I want to break free

It’s strange but it’s true, hey!
I know I’m different, there’s so much I have to do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door
Oh how I want to be free baby
Oh how I have to be free
Oh how I want to break free.

I want to break free (with vocals)

I want to break free (backing track)

 

Scaramouche

Somebody to Love. Verse and chorus. Roughly 49 seconds in the track. Lyrics are :-

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet (take a look at yourself)
Take a look in the mirror and cry (and cry)
Lord, what you doing to me
I spent all my years to believe in you
But I just can’t get no relief, Lord
Somebody (somebody), ooh somebody (somebody)
Can anybody find me somebody to love

Important – the first line of this is pretty tricky to time with the backing track provided. We are happy if members want to come in with the ‘each morning’ lyric if they are struggling to figure out where to start.

Killer Queen

Another one bites the dust. Track to roughly around 45 seconds. Lyrics are :-

Killer Queen walks warily down the street
With her brim pulled way down low
Ain’t no sound but the sound of her feet
Machine guns ready to go

Are you ready, are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone and another one gone
Another one bites the dust, eh
Hey, I’m gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

Important – This version is fairly different from the original full show version. We are happy for octaves to be changed where appropriate. The main thing we are looking for through this number is a strong character and attitude.

Who wants to live forever (Galileo, and Scaramouche call backs)

This can also be used as an audition piece for those not auditioning for any of the 3 above parts. Happy to use the whole track for this one. Lyrics are :-

Scaramouche:
There’s no time for us
There’s no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams
Yet slips away from us

Who wants to live forever

Both:
Who wants to live forever
Who

Scaramouche:
But touch my tears with your lips

Galileo:
Touch my world with your fingertips

Both:
And we can have forever
And we can love forever

Galileo:
Forever is ours today

Both:
Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever

Scaramouche:
Forever is ours

Galileo:
Who waits forever, anyway? 

Who wants to live forever (with vocals)

Who wants to live forever (backing track)
