This Week On The SingStore (15 October 2009)

Hello again!

The SingStore update this week is bursting with new songs, including old favourites such as ‘I’m Not In Love’ by 10CC, The Righteous Brothers with ‘Unchained Melody’ and Marvin Gaye’s ‘I Heard it Through The Grapevine’ plus recent hits from the likes of Lady Gaga, Duffy and Rihanna.

Lady Gaga_Poker Face

Rihanna - We RideDuffy_Mercy

Heroes del Silencio - La HeridaJuli - Perfekte Welle

My personal (not-so-guilty) pleasures this time round would have to be ‘You’re The Voice’ by John Farnham, ‘Your Song’ by Elton John and Robert Palmers’ ‘Addicted To Love’ (and maybe some Rednex and The Stone Roses, too).

Juli’s ‘Perfekte Welle’ and ‘Jetzt Ist Sommer’ by the Wise Guys should please all our German singers out there plus there are also tracks from Héroes del Silencio (Spanish), Alain Souchon (French) and Fixkes (Dutch) available for download.

You can also look forward to the excellent StarterPack SongPacks, most of which we’ll be releasing to the SingStore on the 28th October – full tracklistings to follow in the the next blog update in two weeks’ time!

Until then,

Nina x

sounds good :-) but what about some danish music in the future… like before told on this page if u put danish band Nephew on singstore sales with rocket to the sky ;-) and i would like to see some Muse and U2 as well. What are my chances for that Nina? :)


Nephew has been noted and we’ll see what we can get.

Muse is a firm no at the moment unfortunately but U2 has been on our list for a while so you never know what will come up.

Wow, thank u so much for putting Poker Face. Just Dance was getting a bit old. But Poker Face is superb! Thank you :D

Wow Poker Face, Mercy and We Ride :D Cool :) Mariah Carey please :)


Might go for the Manson song. Might.


I’ve been waiting for this song since I sold my ‘Legends’ disc a few years back :)

Great update for Europe! (envious)

However, i think i’ve officially given up on Singstar in the US.
This weeks HORRIBLE and utterly stupid update for our store was the straw that finally broke the camels back.
It is great that in Europe you are doing so much for your fans, I wish whoever the idiot in charge of the US singstore would take notes, since they obviously have no taste or respect for the people like me who have supported the Singstore since day one by buying almost 300 songs.

My support for SCEA is wearing thin as it is.
PS3 will always be my favorite platform, but Sony needs to wake up.


Hi saintaqua,

Firstly, the ‘idiot in charge of the US SingStore’ is taking notes (as that would be me :)) and…

I DO understand your frustration and everyone working on SingStar is doing their utmost to resolve these issues we are facing in the US.

Let me know any other questions and I’ll do my best to answer them for you.



addyjones1234 12 October, 2009 @ 19:24

your song, elton john my sister will be happy:)

ShinyGoldfish 12 October, 2009 @ 19:39

John Farnham??? Wow! Thanks Nina, you are really spoiling us this week!

Now a strange request for you: Symphonie by Silbermond. I know it’s a German song by a German band, but don’t let that put you off – it’s actually quite good ;-)

Oh, and are you ready to announce SingStar Elton yet? I need my Tiny Dancer fix :-D


Wow….. André Hazes.

Thanks you sooooooooooooooo much Nina ;-)

I hope there’s more to come


thank you!


Good to see some more Queen songs appearing, I think I’ll be giving Duffy a miss though. ;)


That made me laugh, in a good way. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. You should see the amount of moaning that goes on here sometimes, normally when you guys get something from SCEA that we don’t. :D

Any Foo Fighters coming?

I want to sing The Pretender!! :)


Not at the meoment, sorry! Although I agree – would be a great one!

Hi Nina, i wrote this on your last update, but i dont know if you saw it, so im posting it again.

Nina said: Any more suggestions of who you would like to see?
Thomas Helmig, Medina, Sanne Salomonsen, Danseorkestret, Nik & Jay, MGP (for my kids), Magtens Korridorer and NEPHEW. If you can get Nephew on your store, your sales here in Denmark would sky-rocket. That would be SuperLiga


Added to list for evaluation – we’ll see how it goes :)


Hi Nina,
good update as always compared to the US store. Just wanna remind you that even though you have someone there to deal with situations, your job is not quite done there. Pls do smth for the US store as much and as soon as you possibly could. We appriciate all your efforts. thanx


I may not be authoring the US blog posts anymore but the store is still very much under my watchful eye :). And as always – we’re really trying to sort things out but it is difficult.

Rednex? LOL

I’ll get “Go West”, and who knows what more (Personal Jesus, eg)!



Nina, if only you knew how happy you make me when you post the tracklists!!!

I know that you cant answer everyones question, but plz, could you tell me if we ll get Sugababes and Pussycat dolls anytime soon? PLZ?


Hiya – glad to hear it.

We already have ‘Too Lost in You’ by Sugababes and ‘Don’t Cha’ by The Pussycat Dolls available.

l’ll be getting GAGA! Thanks Nina but a more popular song from Rihanna would have been better. Hilary Duff please!

Some Blind Guardian would rock… sadly I seem to belong to a minority; wanting more Metal on the SingStore. The heavy tracks seem to be reserved for more peripheral-heavy games.

Nice update though; a couple of songs I’ll be downloading.

The Johnny Cash cover of “Hurt” would be nice :) cheers!

Hey Nina , Nice Update

Request from my sister , she would like Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montanna) & JLS (from Xfactor) , please

i think X factor could do something good with Singstar , Hey what about something in the VIP thing in Home ?? , or is that to ask som1 else not you ?

Last thing :
can someone please explain to me what these Singstar Starter Packs are ??? , are they like a few download songs for free , allowing more people to see how the singstore works , and tempting them to buy new songs from the store ?

(Eminem – Beautiful please , i really wont stop asking :))


Milay and JLS are being looked at at the moment so your sister may get something soon.

If you wanted to suggest the X Factor in Home to Carly or Naomi – they would be your best bet for now.

StarterPack Songpacks are actually tied to some upcoming disc releases in certain countries but will also be made available as regular downloads from the SingStore. Some great songs in there, I promise!

Great update, don’t have the game though, would be waaaaaay to embarrassed to sing in such a small house with 3 other people! :-D


Go on – you know they will all join in eventually :)

omg GREAT update

thx ^^

Great update!
I’m going to buy:
Elton John – Your Song
Fall Out Boy – Thnks Fr Th Mmrs
Marilyn Manson – Personal Jesus

Any change for more Depeche Mode?

Thanks for getting us the “Fixkes”!



Great update, however is it possible to see some Czech songs in the Singstore list in the future?

playable_daniel 13 October, 2009 @ 11:21

A great update again, its great that Andre Hazes is on there

is there any chance well see enrique iglesias on there soon?

Wow no Muse or Foo’s. I realise you guys must have a hell of a time getting certain artists for whatever political reasons but i would love to see a little more rock on the the store, there is 1 silverchair song a bit of nirvana and a few offspring songs but thats it.

I would love to see the likes of Tool, greenday, breaking benjamin, audioslave, linkin park, white stripes, jeff buckley and those sorts of slightly more alt rock.

Ive always wondered how the songs are chosen you guys have a bunch of hit songs from artists but then some of the bands have some real obscure song choices. The Thrills and Offspring have some songs i have never heard of on singstar and its the same with quite a few other bands.

Anyway just saying my piece. Keep the good times coming


Another fantastic update, probably get about 8-10 of them. I have a question though,

Will the starterpacks consist of songs already available on the Singstore or will they be new songs?


It’s a mixture of both. Watch out for the full tracklising on my next update.

Yes, Nephew, Nephew, Nephew for Denmark. MGP is the Nordic Eurovision like song contest for kids btw.

And White Lies would be great…

Nina, any news about the ‘studio 100’ songs for the PS3? Heard that the PS2 disc swap doesn’t work…. Love to see songs from K3 in the store! Make ma happy!!!

b.t.w Great update!!!



We issued a sofware update (4.21) last week which has resolved the disc swap issue. Let us know if you have any more problems with this.


Is there any chance at all of seeing some Def Leppard songs on Singstar in the future? Or is this one of those publisher issues?


Maybe, possibly.

Is there any chance in the future of seeing a musicals singstar or downloads. The majority of my friends think this would be a really good one to do. Could be just stuff from Andrew lloyd-Webber or a mix including cults like Rocky Horror and Little Shop of Horrors to classics like Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar etc


I’d like to see some Eminem in Europe and of course more of that Elton John goodness you’ve got coming along. Just have to say one thing though, I love the singstar community.

I would like to see a x factor song pack.
ie all the finalist songs

shane ward
leon jackson
leona lewis

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE release careless whisper by george michael and some MUSE songs would definitely not go amiss


That would unfortunately be a no for both for now :(

Great and expensive update for me! There are so many good songs on that list and a good variety.

Since the UMG Deal you are really on the right track.

Special thanks for Juli “Perfekte Welle” it is really a great song from a great german band.

It would be great to have also some songs from Sarah Connor or No Angels. Both are very famous and successful german artists and I love their songs. Maybe we can get some Songs or a Song pack someday/somehow? :-)


Would love to have:

Johnny Cash – Hurt
Breaking Benjamin
Three Days Grace
The Used

Any chances?


Work in progress… :)

Has anyone run into this problem with downloading songs: mid-download, something went wrong and the whole system got stuck. I had to reboot and the end result is that the purchase status says I have downloaded the song, so I can’t download it again, but it doesn’t show up in song selection which also means I can’t delete and redownload. Any ideas??

A request to the Singstar developers: it would be great if you were able to create playlists of downloaded songs, or at least enable or disable using the songs you have on hard drive. If you have a lot of downloaded songs, it really makes no difference in Pass the Mic mode which disc you are using, so it actually puts you off buying new discs… if I want to have an Abba party, I should be able to just use Abba songs from disc and disable the rest for a while!


Hello Nina… Thanks for the update and it’s awesome… I hope the Singstore update for the US gets better in the future cause this week is not so good… I know you’re trying your best to make it happen :)

Anyways I want to ask you something… This year will be the debut for the Sony family in Brazil and everybody loves Singstar, despite not being officially released over here yet… So do you know if Sony intends to release a Singstar Brazilian or something? If you don’t, can you pass the suggestion for them? Thanks girl ;)

Can you we have some Zero7 and Tenacious D please!!?

Second time lucky!

Can we have some Zero7 and Tenacious D please!!?


Hello Nina,

What great songs!
Do you know if there in the future will be more songs of Celine Dion and STEPS? That would be great!

Greetings Mark (Netherlands)

I had to ask this on my girlfriends orders :)
will there be any Backstreet Boys songs in the near future?
Please…. please… answer my question so ican break the new, good or bad.
Thanks in advance

Finally I get to spend some money on the Singstar Store after weeks of updates with songs I already own on PS2 and PS3 (!!!) discs!!

Top update this week!!!

Would be happier if you could just import your songs from discs onto your hard drive!!!!

Thanks again

Great songs this week.. Any chance of some michael Jackson or madonna?


i would just like to say up until recently my singstar online has been pretty good but lately i connect to the servers 5 minutes at a time and it signs out .i know its nothing to do with my network because every other game works it must be the servers.also i would like to make a suggestion for the rating system .at present when you rate someone it takes a while to register your rating and sometimes it doesnt even register at all. maybe an idea would be to have some kind of corfirmation that your rating has been logged .p s really loving everything else about the game .

I don’t get it, no Madonna, no happy : (

The SingStar team doesn’t put songs of her because is a scrooge-lady that asks too much money for putting her songs on the store? XDDD Because I don’t understand how can be possible that more than 2 years since the original SingStore release, there aren’t ANY songs from her :(

Please Nina, do something! : )


All the recent updates were superb, but am wondering is there any chance to see any Greek songs in Singstore (so far i have seen only 2 and these are from Eurovision).

Is this due to royalties because if am not mistaken Sony BMG (Sony Music) has quite a few performers and groups or just because Greece has a small market interest?.

It would be nice to have a reply on this Nina, thanks!

Nightwish eg. “while your lips are still red” or ” Over the hills and far away” would be fantastic.
Nephew would be nice
Metallica some of their ballads would also be great.
