The most important part of any dancing game isn't how stupid you look while playing it — the answer there is always "very" — but the songs you'll be shaking your hind quarters to. O-Games has put out a list of some of the modern songs you'll be able to dance to in its upcoming Get Up and Dance when it launches in November.

As you'd expect from a game currently only pegged for release in the UK, there's a strong British accent to the tracks, with Girls Aloud, Taio Cruz and Jessie J all appearing alongside American superstars like Nicole Scherzinger, Timbaland and Gwen Stefani.
