Sadly this Singstar featuring tunes from the 80's can actually make me cry when I am in the right mood and especially when the kids are singing with me.
This really for me is the highlight of my Singstar collection with a mix of songs that will appeal to everyone, a personal opinion obviously.
For anyone who does not know the basic premise of Singstar is karaoke for the Playstation 2 and is massively successful with over ten different title being released in the last few years.

Check out his track list it really is a monster with something for everyone on it, the videos on it that you sing along to are hilarious especially Uptown Girl (What is Christie Brinkley wearing??) and 99 Red balloons by Nena, she looked hot in that leather get up.
My personal favourite's on here are 99 Red Balloons and A Little Respect by Erasure, and yes I do try and do the Andy Bell high top note and normally end up pretty hoarse after it but it is so much fun, get some mates round or the family whack this on and have a laugh even my young ones (8yr and 6yrs) have heard most of these songs.We don't really worry about scoring or trying to win but you can play games etc on this and try to beat each others scores, we prefer the duet mode where you can both sing at the same time as Singstar cleverly splits the lyrics in two and these scores are combined so we normally just play against ourselves.
Until you have sung the classic line "knee deep in the hoopla.." on Starship's We Built This City you have not lived!!!
Long live the 80's
Summary: GREAT ENTERTAINMENT FOR ALL THE FAMILY,FRIENDS ETC GREAT FOR PARTIES
