170w ago - SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer at London Studios has posted up this weeks SingStore releases today, as follows:
There's so much happening this week that I think this is going to be a long one. Sorry!
First things first: Thanks to all of you who reported the issue with the Gwen Stefani track 'What you Waiting For?' This has now been fixed and all you have to do is re-download the song to enjoy Gwen (and her lyrics) in all their glory again.
On the store this week we have tons of great songs but I really can't contain myself about this one: Whoooooooooo - please be as excited as I am about WHAM! and 'Wake Me Up Before you go-Go'!
No? Ok, maybe that's just me so for all of you who I can't convince about that one, how about some beautiful tunes such as 'She's Always A Woman' by Fyfe Dangerfield, Tom Jones' 'Delilah' or 'My Girl' by The Temptations?
You may also want to headbang your way through some more guitary stuff from the likes of Korn, Wolfmother and Iggy Pop or shake your collective booties to The Pussycat Dolls, Nelly Furtado, Kate Nash and Taio Cruz.
If you fancy finding out a bit more about Locnville I suggest you have a little look in MySingStar Online. You never know, you might even find some videos...

Fully rehearsed and in costume, the dancers were ready to begin.
For me, watching anyone perform a well thought out dance routine is pretty impressive, and two people simultaneously performing a very long and difficult routine in perfect time is something that takes a lot of effort, practice and skill.
I spoke to choreographer Shaun Niles about how he creates a dance routine for SingStar Dance.
"It's very hard! I have to pretend to hold the PlayStation Move motion controller myself when I work out routines to see what can be done with it. Some movements can be quite difficult, such as a flick of the wrist, and can feel a bit weird with the controller in your hand at first. Its hard work but I have choreographed a few routines for...
