Flaming Lips, Pussycats in Sims 2 Pets
Music artists The Flaming Lips, Pussycat Dolls, Hot Chip lead roster of 24 artists contributing Simlish versions of songs for Sims 2 Pets.
While most of the attention is on the soundtracks of Electronic Arts' sports games, one other franchise has been pulling in big names for quite some time now. However, those big names--which include The Black Eyed Peas, Depeche Mode, and Howard Jones--aren't exactly intelligible, because they sing in a very foreign language.
The franchise is The Sims, and the next installment of the series will continue the tradition of featuring famous musicians singing songs that make Bob Dylan sound like a speech coach. Joining the previously announced teen sensations AJ & Aly will be alt-rockers The Flaming Lips, sexy songstresses Pussycat Dolls, and nerd-core act Hot Chip.
"We've always been known to jump at opportunities that challenge us to do something totally fresh that we've never done. Needless to say, recording 'Free Radicals' in Simlish allowed us to do just that," said Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne.
