Nothing's better at the end of a good night out then drunkenly coming home, loading up SingStar, and belting out a bit of Bonnie Tyler. Plus, with the recent addition of wireless mics to the game, there's no longer any risk of any cable-related injuries.

They're coming to Singstar, it's not just an excuse for another Girls Aloud picture, honest.


Still, as good as Total Eclipse of the Heart is, crooners the world over will soon have more songs to choose from, because Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced that tracks from Universal Music's back catalogue will soon be available to buy on the SingStore throughout Europe. The first batch of songs will be arriving on August 8, including hits from Girls Aloud, Motorhead, and Tiffany adding to the 1,300 already available on the store.

The Jackson Five's I Want You Back, which is also a Universal song, will be released ahead of the instalment on July 23 "due to popular demand." The announcement was made by SCEE and is only related to those territories covered by SCEE, which includes Australia. Information on other regions was not forthcoming.
