Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has revealed the name and preliminary track listing for the latest game in its SingStar karaoke game series, which will be released in Europe in early November.

SingStar Legends is the seventh installment in the series and features new modes that let up to eight players compete in a sing-off. Rather than focusing on one genre or era, as Sony has done with previous games, Sony has gathered classics from across the musical spectrum. Fans can look forward to belting out classic tracks such as The Beach Boys' "Surfin' USA," Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," David Bowie's "Life on Mars," and The Jackson 5's "I Want You Back."

In addition to including a wide-ranging track list, Sony is shipping two microphones and a USB adapter with the standard version of the game. Pricing looks likely to follow previous versions, which retailed in the United Kingdom for £39.99 ($76) with two microphones and a USB adapter and for £19.99 ($38) without the accessories.

The full list of songs currently confirmed for SingStar Legends is as follows:

--Elton John, "Rocket Man"
--The Beach Boys, "Surfin' USA"
--The Police, "Roxanne"
--Johnny Cash, "Ring of Fire"
--The Jackson 5, "I Want You Back"
--Tina Turner, "What's Love Got to Do With It?"
--John Lennon, "Imagine"
--Nirvana, "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
--Ben E King, "Stand By Me"
--David Bowie, "Life on Mars?"
--The Righteous Brothers, "Unchained Melody"
