I’d like to help London Studios (creator of the very successful SingStar franchise) sell a few more games.
There are a number of tracks I’d like to see – these are songs you might find if you wander into a pub and hear the odd tune.
This isn’t just a random list, but rather specific songs I think would be good to get up and belt out. I’ve observed many of them are popular with the Karaoke crowd.
Artist – Title
Don Mclean – American Pie
The Proclaimers – 500 Miles
Frank Sinatra – New York, New York
Big Audio Dynamite II – Rush
Grease – Summer Lovin’
Sister Hazel – All For You
Billy Joel – Piano Man
Pearl Jam – Alive
Green Day – When I Come Around
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Under the Bridge/Dani California
Creedence Clearwater Revival – Joy to the World
Live – Lightning Crashes/The River
The Beatles – Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
The Rolling Stones – Start Me Up
Stealers Wheel – Stuck in the Middle
AC/DC – Back in Black
Crowded House – Distant Sun/Weather With You
Boom Crash Opera – Dancing in the Storm
Midnight Oil – Blue Sky Mine
Ice House – Great Southern Land
Can you suggest any songs which are missing from the current SingStar lineup? Any that you think are a must for Karaoke?
While we’re at it, can you think of some groovy tracks for Guitar Hero? I’d like to see Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin), Enter Sandman (Metallica) and some AC/DC (why not!).
