O Games' Get Up and Dance wants to give players of all age something they can shake their hips (or replacements) to, with the publisher announcing four
new old tracks for the song's playlist.
From Donna Summer's classic Hot Stuff — best known for its role in The Full Monty of course — to Lionel Richie's feel good song about good feelings Dancing On The Ceiling there's plenty for those who believe music really went downhill after the 1980s, as well as anyone who thinks music's only good if it was released in a year starting with 20.
YOU’RE NEVER TOO OLD TO GET UP AND DANCE
Take a trip back to the golden age of dance with O-Games’ Get Up And Dance this November on Wii™ and PlayStation® Move for PlayStation®3
11th October 2011– Wellingborough, UK/… O-Games has today revealed the fourth batch of tracks from Get Up And Dance, the ultimate multi-format social dancing game that everyone can play, whether you’re a dance hall diva or have two left feet. Get Up And Dance’s time-travelling track roster is set to include some classic Golden Oldies from the 60s, 70s and 80s, with chart-topping artists like Dusty Springfield, Elton John and Lionel Richie.
‘Hot Stuff’ is the hit single released by American singer Donna Summer in 1973. Up to that point, Summer had mainly been associated with disco songs but this song also showed significant rock influences. Dusty Springfield’s ‘I Only Want Be With You’ was a success in both Britain and the US, and led to the recording of A Girl Called Dusty which was released in 1964.
Rock Song ‘Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)’ was so popular it went on to be covered by some of the worlds best rock acts, including The Who, Queen and Nickelback. The original also appeared as the theme song trailer for 2011 film ‘Gnomeo and Juliet.’ Lionel Richie’s 1986 pop classic, ‘Dancing on The Ceiling ’ comes from the chart topping album of the same name. The official video, that features in Get Up And Dance, originally cost around $400,000 to make, the most expensive short form music productions of that time.
When Get Up And Dance shimmies its way to Wii™ and PlayStation® Move for PlayStation®3 on November 4th, gamers will be able to get their groove on to an expansive track listing, featuring everything from classic funky disco tracks to the following Golden Oldies, including official promo videos from international superstar artists:
