SingStar is normally something you associate with "Europeans", "drunk women" and "popular music". But with Christmas coming up, Sony figured it might be a good idea to add "tacky holiday songs" to the list as well.
I say tacky because, sadly, when putting the list of Christmas songs together, they didn't go the preferred route and include some Rat Pack crooning. Instead, we get ten downloadable songs featuring Slade. Wings. And...Cliff Richard.
OK, so Wings is actually pretty great. Especially since "Mull Of Kintyre" made the cut, which should give anyone with Scottish relatives something to do once, come December 25, the sun sets and the lid comes off the whiskey bottle.
But Cliff Richard? Come on, Sony. My mum doesn't know how to access the SingStore.
The complete list of holiday songs is below:
Slade – Merry Xmas Everybody
Doris Day – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Cliff Richard – Saviour's Day
Johnny Mathis – When A Child Is Born
Nat King Cole – A Cradle in Bethlehem
Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder – Ebony & Ivory
Paul McCartney – Dance Tonight
Wings –Mull Of Kintyre
Wings – Band On The Run
Paul McCartney –Pipes of Peace
