The game will feature 38 cover songs--but no original versions--from the present, the 90s, the 80s and the 70s.

Britney Spears -- "I'm A Slave 4 U"

@PBRulez: Haha, I like a lot of the songs too, (funk is one of my favorite genres), so I wouldn't suspect anything from someone who does as well. @PokeAMetroid: Too bad Miss Lady Kier won't be collecting performance royalties for Dee-Lite's "Groove Is In the Heart" because EA went with covers. I guess she'll have to pay off her legal fees from her failed SEGA lawsuit some other way.

I also detected that, ryanthegreat232. hope it'll be included in the game 'cause that's a very good song. it'll be a shame....

Very varied list, but sounds like it is going to be cool

Also, you do all realize that these aren't going to be the original songs, right? They're all "covers". They're going to sound different. How disappointing. That fact alone put me off this game, although I may give it a rent if it turns out not to sound like crap. EA's never had problems with getting music in their games before, why now?

Interesting. I notice the song they use in the trailer from grease is not on the list? Maybe i missed it

Funnily enough (and I don't know what this says of me, BigDanG, lol) but I actually like a lot of those songs.

I don't mean this in an inflammatory way, but this may have the gayest gay friendly?) track list of any rhythm game out there. Culture Club, The Village People, "It's Raining Men". I guess the Wii truly is a console for everybody...

Wow, wow and wow. This game is going to fail miserably. That's the most worn-out, mainstream-centric track listing I have ever seen in any game. This track listing gets a 1/100 for coolness, and that's because the only single redeemable track on this whole damn list is RHCP's "Love Roller Coaster." Now please excuse me as I think of ways to not think about how this game will play while listening to all (except one) of these tracks.

Pretty good mix of pop tracks there.

finaleve... i hate to be the one to tell you, but Fergie is in the Black Eyed Peas... so if you hate fergie, but like the black eyed peas... hmm... then... color me confused. really, the tracks aren't so bad- your basic common party songs. this game has a lot of potenial if it plays as well as it looks. PS: have you seen the rock band mini game in Rayman Rabbits 2?! oh my god, i want a full blown game of that! that's some crazy party game action for sure. music games are coming into their own, finally!

I think I'll pass. I've seen some pretty bad songlists, but in my opinion, this one wins the award. I can see the demographic that EA is trying to appeal to. Unfortunately, the members of that demographic are not old to reach the pedals and drive to the store to buy the game. EA's loss.

FERGIE?! HELL NO... they had me until I saw that song...

:D Looks good, Rhythm game + Canned Heat = Awesome! Really like the look of this game, it'll be interesting to actually have a go at the controls, oh and I'm with GabuEx about senseless fun, making (more of) an idiot out of myself and my friends is what drew me to the Eyetoy (which I still get together with my mates on) and the Wii, I like the more serious Wii games too but you can't beat some good old-fashioned stupidness (I mean that in the best way possible)

One More Time from Daft Punk is a great song to dance to. :D

@ timmyjoe012345: We're not getting this game to be cool; we're getting this game to have some senseless fun. Anyone who isn't willing to make an idiot out of himself in front of his friends is far too uptight.

Lots of hits, and they're all pretty awful. Fortunately there's still Guitar Hero.

Daft Punk? Not bad... I'd really prefer to see Eiffel 65 tho >o>

This is going to lead to countless hours of YouTube hilarity. Oh yeah, you know there will be penty of idiots just waiting to show off how bad they can sing, and we'll be laughing at them. I wasn't planning on getting this but now...I guess we'll have to see.

After reading the previous comments, you guys are either the most sarcastic people in the world or I've entered bizzaro world. Seriously, this looks like the worst game ever. Each and every song makes me want to stab myself in the ears... repeatedly. :( But this also isn't my type of game, so to each his own...

The PC pseudonym of "Let's Get Retarded" is actually: "Let's Get Mentally Challenged". Songs would be catchy/dance appropriate. Daft Punk is a good touch.

they censored the black eyed peas song for mainstream release, it was released as a single that way, and is included along with let's get retarded on the album

i didn't think this game looked terribly good until now. i guess my dad was right when he said that learning the words YMCA would help me later in life...
