This Week On The SingStore (25 March 2010)

Hello! Let’s get this SingStore show on the road then…

I’m quite excited about throwing some excellent shapes on the dancefloor with Sophie Ellis Baxter this week plus, who could say no to a bit of of ‘Crocodile Rock’ with Sir Elton? Not me.

The Beach Boys - Surfin' USA

In fact, Editors, Razorlight, Sugababes, The Beach Boys, more Lionel and my personal favourite Digable Planets? What more can I say?

Coming to your SingStore store soon: More Lady Gaga, Snow Patrol AND the mighty U2!

Our Stereophonics competition has now closed but if you want to see who made the cut, check out the video of our ten lucky finalist in game now. Congratulations, all!

Also don’t forget to pop into the SingStar VIP Rooms in Home on Thursday (25th March) to watch the Stereophonics rock out at an exclusive gig. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog this week as Rob will be posting all you need to know about it right here.

Enjoy!

Nina xx

Never in my wildest dreams did I see the day that ‘My Lovely Horse’ would be on SingStar.

 
jelly_bean 22 March, 2010 @ 4:14 pm   2

The update is quite good… It’s good to know you’re bringing great artists in the Singstore soon… Now I’m just hoping for the almighty Michael Jackson… Fingers crossed for that… Nina, you rock ;)

Little Boots – Earthquake, Remedy, New in Town

Hi Nina! Do you think you could try and get Lady Gaga in the U.S. please!

    Nina Scherer 22 March, 2010 @ 5:28 pm    

    Well, it doesn’t really depend on us at the moment. Let’s just say we’re looking into it!

FINALLY….Push the Button!! Been waiting for this since it was hinted at last October-ish.

On facebook it says a Lady Gaga song pack will come on the 8th of April, I just wanna know will Bad Romance and Lovegame be available as singles at the same time?! I Hope so, don’t wanna feel boned having bought the other 3 songs as and when they came on Singstore. It’s gonna suck if we have to wait 2+ Months (Average songpack to Singles timeline) for those others songs.

Oh, and as always…”Singstar: Glee!” You know you want it too! lol

philipathens 22 March, 2010 @ 4:24 pm   6

Nina THANK YOU!! After so many weeks finaly a sugababes song. THANKS :) ( I think you were expecting my comment)
Aside form the sugababes I ll get the Sophie Ellis Bextor song and The Beach boys song.

I am thinking of getting the GaGa song pack, but I have 2/5 songs…hmm I have 2 weeks to see If I ll buy it or not…

GriFFiNN_Qc 22 March, 2010 @ 4:25 pm   7

This is crazy how most of North Americans won’t know ANY OF THESE GROUPS… omg…

yeah… maybe except The Beach Boys…

I hope someday, someone wakes up… This is ridiculous…

 
razazier 22 March, 2010 @ 4:44 pm   8

Hello Nina! Firstly thank you for this update. Two songs from our wish list entering the SingStore: With or without you and Bad Romance. Thank you very much. Now we hope to see French songs of our wish list to get on the SingStore or a new SingStar disc. On behalf of all French: thank you very much

MCFlange2 22 March, 2010 @ 4:52 pm   9

wow as a big Father Ted fan, I never thought i’d ever see “My lovely horse” on Singstar ! !

 
amplifiedAnt 22 March, 2010 @ 4:56 pm   10

Finally, finally, FINALLY there’s a decent update in 2010!

It’s good for one reason and one reason only, but thank you for putting more Lostprophets on the store. Not just the new pop-y singles either, a proper track from their first album :)

Please, please keep the rock coming.

 
SA_Royal 22 March, 2010 @ 5:11 pm   11

Hey Nina nice update this week,any idea if we’ll ever get a few more Spice Girls songs and is it possible that we can get this song from Tiesto & Kirsty Hawkshaw ‘Just Be’

wdreamer 22 March, 2010 @ 5:15 pm   12

Hi there Nina :) Thanks for the much better update for the English speaking countries this time, appreciate it.

I was wondering if it was possible to get an update on the status of gaining license clearance for Warner Music signed artists/bands?

    Nina Scherer 22 March, 2010 @ 5:33 pm    

    Well, like i said – we publish things whenever they are ready, so…

    No, afraid I can’t tell you anymore on that at the moment, sorry.

Tarbipoo 22 March, 2010 @ 5:17 pm   13

Great Update! I will be getting 8 of these! Nina, do you know if we can expect any more Beach Boys, Bonnie Tyler, Meat Loaf, Cher or Veronicas on the store? Also I would love to see Edwin Starr – War, Sister Hazel, Three Days Grace or Finger Eleven too – do you know if these groups are possible?

Keep the good updates coming!

 
razazier 22 March, 2010 @ 5:25 pm   14

Very good update pity there are no more French titles. Nina, can you tell us the official rules of the Pantheon. How to videos and listen to integrate the pantheon, and especially the rules of the Pantheon for 5 sites in addition to the 5 already available for videos or listen. E I had already asked you but not see. Thank you very much

 

So now Sony paid a [DELETED] of $ for the Michael Jackson rights, when are they going to try to earn it back to let MJ loos on the Singstore?

    Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 10:30 am    

    Hi,

    I guess you are talking about Sonty Music here? I’m afraid this deal has nothing to do with us as far as I know, so I can’t tell you when or even if we will see MJ’s songs on the store.

    Cheers,

    Nina

 
EmpireNO 22 March, 2010 @ 5:38 pm   16

Hi Nina!

I have a question, I recently had to buy a new PS3 because my last on failed on me.

I’ve bought aprrox. 40-45 songs, and SingStore tells me I can’t download these songs to my new PS3.

Have I lost all the songs I bought? That quite a lot of money down the drain if that’s the case?

Please respond, I just want to know.

    Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 10:33 am    

    Hi –

    You will need to contact the customer service department (number came with your PS3) and they will be able to transfer your entitlements so you can re-download them.

    Hope this helps?

    Nina

 
Bonyman 22 March, 2010 @ 5:41 pm   17

My lovely Horse! Brilliant! :D
I’m looking forward to seeing which U2 tracks are going to be available, hopefully some of the older ones.

 
EmpireNO 22 March, 2010 @ 5:43 pm   18

Nina. I counted the number of songs, and it’s actually more than a 120 songs that I have bought, I hope I haven’t lost all these songs?

 
Lee_and_Nomi 22 March, 2010 @ 6:08 pm   19

Brill update. Sophie Ellis Bextor – Murder On The Dancefloor and Sugerbabes – Push the button are so mine :D

And you know we all can’t wait for more Gaga

Hooray for Sophie Ellis-Bextor! Finally more songs I actually know and like, hope the tendency continues. ;)

Lostee48 22 March, 2010 @ 7:18 pm   21

Can’t wait for gaga!

Lostee48 22 March, 2010 @ 7:22 pm   22

Nina is it possible to group Just dance with the other lady gaga songs on the carousel even though there is someone featuring in Just dance.

    Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 11:06 am    

    This should be grouped together with Lady Gaga if you sort by artist already?

Od1c3rO 22 March, 2010 @ 7:38 pm   23

Referring to ‘EmpireNO’ question.

I was wondering the same. I am looking in to buying a new PS3 myself, and it would be nice to know that when I replace my old one I can still use all my songs that I purchase?

Thank Nina…

Oh, my eternal graditude <3 Editors Papillion!

 
SideshowN 22 March, 2010 @ 8:33 pm   27

Good job jumping on Gaga cause Rock Band and Lips been getting songs left and right from her. Glad to see that Singstar caught up! Thank you for U2 and The Fratellis coming up as well. As far as this weeks update I will need to listen to those songs cause I dont really know much of them except Beach Boys, Digable Planets, and Elton John.

Please get Lost Prophets “Rooftops” and Human League “Dont you want me baby” in the store soon.

VincentVendetta 22 March, 2010 @ 8:47 pm   28

Since how much time are you talking with Universal anyway? Are they republicans or what?

Craigy1978 22 March, 2010 @ 9:48 pm   29

Hi Nina,

Rather than making a wish list of random songs that may not be possible to license at all can i just ask whether it’s possible for these songs which aren’t on any of the UK sing star discs but have been licensed and released on discs in Europe / USA to come to the UK singstore. I notice a great deal of the fortnightly updates are made up of songs I already have on my PS2 games and therefore you’re missing a trick with the likes of me and other big fans who own all the discs already and are very likely to want to buy downloads from you too.

    Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 11:13 am    

    Hiya,

    Deals for the SingStore and the discs are a completely removed from each other. However, we do try and get as many disc tracks on the store as possible, so watch this space…

    Cheers,

    Nina

chara123 22 March, 2010 @ 9:52 pm   31

Is there any Michael Jackson songs or Eiffel 65 in singstore? because i wont be geting a singstar if there arent.

    Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 11:19 am    

    Hi, there is no Michael Jackson but we have six Jackson 5 songs on the store. No Eiffel 65 so far, I’m afraid.

Craigy1978 22 March, 2010 @ 9:56 pm   32

Can i agree with post #22

It is annoying having the ‘Featuring artist’ listed on the main title page. It makes the caraousel even bigger. I have Lady Gaga by herself with poker face / eh eh nothign i can say .. but then another listing for her with just dance cos it features colby o donnis.

Same with James Morrison solo tracks and then listed seperately for the Nelly Furtado duet, same with Timbaland etc.

Can the ‘Featuring XXX’ not appear after the song title instead of the artist title.

Many thanks :)

    Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 11:30 am    

    Hiya,

    Because there is another artist involved we are required to display these in full so they will display seperately as one different artist, sorry!

    Nina

 

I´m looking out for some good U2 songs (50 or so). ;-)

 
Its2BuzzAR 22 March, 2010 @ 11:24 pm   34

Thanks, Nina, for letting those of us in the U. S. know which songs we’ll be getting, since whoever was supposed to take over for you on the U. S. site apparently has been kidnapped by aliens. I’m wondering if there is a chance that any of these previously released PAL songs will make it to the Sing Store either in the U. S. or U. K.?

“Like a Virgin”

“Livin’ La Vida Loca”

“9 to 5″

“1985″

“Blue Suede Shoes”

“All Out of Love”

“Black Velvet”

“Amazed”

“Can’t Fight the Moonlight”

“Alone”

“Africa”

“Broken Wings”

“Kyrie”

“Let Your Love Flow”

Since there seems to be such difficulty in getting pop and rock songs on the U. S. Sing Store, how about some more country?

 
agm2502 23 March, 2010 @ 1:07 am   35

Any chance of some Bryan Adams soon? also I would like Chris Isaac – Wicked Game, heard it on the radio today after not hearing it for ages and thought it’d be good to sing on singstar.

alleyt1989 23 March, 2010 @ 2:38 am   36

Yay for Kisschasy, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and SUGABABES!

 
Tntnnbltn 23 March, 2010 @ 9:00 am   37

Thank you sooooo much for Kisschasy. :D I requested them a couple updates ago, but given the fast turnaround you must’ve already requested them earlier. If so, someone on your team has great taste. ;)

I’ll also grab “Murder on the Dancefloor”, and will be picking up the new Lady Gaga singles next fortnight. (Going to see Lady Gaga in concert next week, so it’s great timing!!)

As for my recommendation this fortnight, and chance of getting some more Gabriella Cilmi on the SingStore? Would love to see her new single “On A Mission”, and maybe even “Don’t Wanna Go To Bed Now” and “Save The Lies”. :)

 
razazier 23 March, 2010 @ 1:19 pm   38

Hello Nina. If you buy a SongPack we meddley with them. But if you buy the 5 song Lady Gaga at the unit, is that we will also meddley Lady Gaga?

Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 2:17 pm   39

Hi all,

I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news today but I’m afraid this weeks update will be delayed due to some issues we’re having and trying to get to the bottom of right now.

I’ll let you know as soon as know anything regarding a new release date, I promise. The minute I find out it will be posted here so keep an eye on this blog post!

Cheers,

Ninax

 
Outofathens 23 March, 2010 @ 2:35 pm   40

Hey Nina!
Great update! Is it possible to have more STEPS and Celine Dion in the future?

Keep up the good work! :)

Song request:
Skillet – Monster

guess my other post was moderated?
not sure why, but it’s not showing.
oh well, I will simply leave a song request.

Tarbipoo 23 March, 2010 @ 3:00 pm   42

Any chance of getting Skillet – Hero on the Singstar? Would make for a great duet! Also it would be great to see some Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers and some Flyleaf too!

Kazper-DK 23 March, 2010 @ 4:27 pm   43

This is a good update. I certainly can’t resist Sir Elton, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Beach Boys and Lostprophets :) Also very nice to see a danish song – not my favorite but good enough to get. Wish we’d get some Nephew (or more TV2 or DAD at least) though :)

I’m curious about the question asked in #38 too, though. Will the medley be playable if you have all the songs individually? If not it’s kind of sucky to put songs that have been on the store as singles for a while into songpacks where we’d have to pay for them *again* – which i’m certainly not interested in.

In fact I’ve long wondered why it isn’t possible to detect that someone has all the singles of a songpack, and thus allow consider the songpack bought. After all that person has already paid more than the price of the songpack to buy them individually…

    Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 5:10 pm    

    Hey –

    You won’t have to pay for the songs again as they will be available as singles. The medley is an nice addition which we try to provide as an extra in a SongPack (and it’s also not always possible to do one) so no, you won’t have access to that if you have bought the tracks individually.

    The game should warn you when you try and download a SongPack which contains tracks you already own in the same way it warns you when you try and download a single you previously downloaded with a SongPack.

    Cheers,

    Nina

 
GaryCXJk 23 March, 2010 @ 4:57 pm   44

Sophie Ellis-Bextor AND Sugababes?! My dreams came true! Although I do like a Sophie Ellis-Bextor song I actually like. Ironically the most well known song of her is the one I liked the least. Aside from Get Over You.

Also, I’d like to know if there’s an “official” Dutch wishlist topic thread forum website thingy.

By the way, when you update with the news when it’s released I expect a lolcat picture as a sort of “sorry for the delay” thing.

    Nina Scherer 23 March, 2010 @ 5:15 pm    

    Mhh, I’ll need to think about that cat lolcat thing…….NO, maybe not :)

 
razazier 23 March, 2010 @ 6:58 pm   45

Hello Nina. It does not answer me on the rules of the SingStore and the Pantheon? But these rules are written nowhere

hi Nina!

when do we get
Glen Hansard, Iris, Alter Bridge, The Verve Pipe, Steel Dragon, David Cook, Cary Jules, Metallica?

Lostee48 24 March, 2010 @ 11:16 am   47

Hey Nina any chance of getting Telephone by Lady Gaga feauturing Beyonce. This would be an awesome duet!

 
razazier 24 March, 2010 @ 2:53 pm   48

In France, the galleries with the best media called Pantheon. They grouped the media with the best grades. But when you look the media friends, we notice that some media are not rated in the pantheon. We all know that we can have 5 videos up on our profile. But if our video is part of the gallery of the best videos (PANTHEON in “Mysinstar Online” in France), we can have 5 other videos sites. And have a total of 10 pitches videos on our profile. It would be interested to know the official regulation, as Singstar players have lots of questions about the operation.

 
Tntnnbltn 24 March, 2010 @ 4:23 pm   49

The full version of “Telephone” might be a bit too… uh… cumbersome for SingStar. :(

I wish there was an edited short version or something though, cause it’d be so awesome to sing.

 
jelly_bean 25 March, 2010 @ 4:04 am   50

Hi Nina. It’s me bugging you again… Hehehe… Is there a possibility to see Lily Allen’s songs like 22, [DELETED] You, Who’d Have Known, Oh My God, Smile, Alfie or Drivin’ Me Wild in the Singstore soon? Please say yes to anyone of them! Waiting for your reply. Thanks :D
