Lips: Party Classics will have you singing 'Y.M.C.A.'

10:00 PM on 12.03.2009 // Nick Chester

Are you ready to party? Well, why just listen to party down classics like The B-52's "Love Shack" or the Spice Girls' "Wannabe"? Microsoft thinks you should be singing along, and as someone who can't wait to see YouTube videos of your drunk ass, I agree. 

Announced for spring of 2010, Lips: Party Classics features all of the Lips classic action (i.e. karaoke) with 40 new "peppy, festive, dramatic, and exhilerating songs. Announced so far:

  • "Love Shack" by the B-52's
  • "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba
  • "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor
  • "Rock and Roll All Night" by KISS
  • "Wannabe" by Spice Girls
  • "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tiffany
  • "Y.M.C.A." by Villlage People

So, fun little fact about me -- before I sat around in my pajamas all day writing about videogames, I used to host karaoke at a Baltimore bar one day a week. Turned out I wasn't a good fit, because in between songs I would play the theme to Katamari Damacy, my favorite Grim Reaper songs, Aesop Rock, and Fantomas, and the bar owners were all like "Seriously, what the hell?" 

Anyhow, I have a point here, so let me get to it. All of the songs announced so far for Lips: Party Classics are among a very long list of songs every karaoke host hates, and that groups of drunk, squealing girls (and their male buddies trying to get some action) would inevitably sing. Every week.

Hint: No one wants to hear that crap. Take that sh*t behind-closed-doors with Lips: Party Classics, guys, and get some achievements while you're at.

Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.
