I'm interested in doing a showreel for my portfolio, but am struggling to find the style of music and permission to use it.
My initial idea was Hit The Road Jack by Ray Charles - but unfortunately due to the high profile of the song (and probably my lack of negotiation skills), it's not possible for me to use it for promotional reasons.
Can anyone suggest something similar for low-no budget? My music library isn't quite eclectic enough to go in on this alone, and would love to know whether anyone knows any little known bands (with a similar style) that may be willing to let me use their stuff...

Looking forward to hearing any suggestions

Many thanks x
