Lips Xbox Karaoke Tracks Announced

Lips Xbox Karaoke Tracks Announced


The Xbox 360's upcoming karaoke franchise is launching with forty famous hits, including "Hungry Like the Wolf" and more recently Rihanna's "Umbrella".

Leaked online around this year's E3 and developed by iNis (makers of the funky DS rhythm title Elite Beat Agents), Lips will release with two motion-sensitive wireless microphones for $69.99.

A Freestyle mode allows players to plug in any DRM-free MP3 into the Xbox 360 and sing to song without the lyrics displayed onscreen.

Standard "Party Modes" such as Vocal Fighters (singer-versus-singer) and Time Bomb (cooperative play to pass a song) were mostly expected. However, the fresh "Kiss" mode forces both singers to use the microphones for certain stage-stealing motions until the two stars are singing so close they must kiss each other.

Smaller confirmed features include downloadable content and support for four player action with the two backup musicians using Xbox 360 controllers to play background music.

Finally, the full track list features:

  • a-ha- "Take on Me"

Which are the duets in here? If there are any, I don't recognize them, other than Umbrella.

I would assume any song can be sung duet. And I don't know personally, but they did say that certain songs with two people would have different vocal charts.

Not necessarily my cup of tea music wise but I'm glad I could just put my own in instead.

True, any song can be sung by two, but some songs are written as duets, which is to say, for both a guy and a girl. (or two guys, in the case of Erasure)

The stock karaoke duets are:
Summer Lovin' from Grease
Paradise by the Dashboard Light by Meatloaf
Don't You Want Me by The Human League
Love Shack by the B-52's

Out of the songs in that list, the only one I recognize as being specifically written for a guy and a girl is Umbrella, but I'm not familiar with most of the other recent songs.
