The music of Andrew Lloyd Webber coming to Lips

Does anybody actually play Lips? Even when it was new on the market, the only person I knew to actually have spent any significant time with the game was Anthony Burch. Here's how that turned out in case you missed it.

Microsoft has apparently not given up on their karaoke franchise quite yet. While the game is predominately composed of popular musics, they're branching out a bit with two sets of songs from musicals by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Here's a breakdown of the songs that will release:

August 10th:

  • “Memory” - Elaine Paige (Cats)
  • “All I Ask of You” - Cliff Richard & Sarah Brightman (Phantom of the Opera)
  • “Love Changes Everything” - Michael Ball (Aspects of Love)

September 13th:

  • “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” - Elaine Paige (Evita)
  • “The Phantom of the Opera” - Steve Harley & Sarah Brightman (Phantom of the Opera)
  • “Any Dream Will Do” - Donny Osmond (Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat)

I'm not a Webber fan (Lerner and Loewe 4 lyfe, yo). Phantom may be one of the most overblown musicals in history and, worse, launched the career of that banshee Sarah Brightman. Dreamcoat is rather good, I will admit. If I had a copy of Lips, "Any Dream Will Do" is the only one of these tracks I'd even consider buying, though I will admit that a sick part of me wants to sing "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" in the musical style of Oderus Urungus. Of course, who needs Lips to do that?

Tell Harmonix to put the entirety of '...Like Clockwork' in Rock Band 4

Looking forward to Rock Band 4 just as much as I am? You're probably wondering how the upcoming roster is going to look. Me too. In fact, I'm pretty concerned. I dropped a pretty penny on hundreds of songs, with 70% of them i...more

Rocksmith will turn you into a guitar legend like Hendrix or the guy from Papa Roach

Rocksmith 2014's getting some DLC songs by Papa Roach today. One time in eighth grade, a kid in my class started a speech by saying "Cut my life into pieces, this is my bat report. Echolocation, no seeing. Vampire bat bite your arm, now you're bleeding." I wonder what he's up to. Probably not playing Papa Roach songs on Rocksmith, if I'm being really honest.more
