    Getting the Foreigner, and Born This Way (Weird Al is parodying this on his new album, and I have every songs Al has parodied that has been released in RB). Maybe Paparazzi.

    Nothing I hate, but nothing I am really super enthusiastic about this week.

    Just both Foreigner songs later on for me. I like the songs but i still have tons of stuff to buy before those. :)
    i love those mix of styles that HMX does each week. Makes more people happy.

    think I've found the pro-guitar song to get my 100% and gold star on. Dead leaves should be fairly simple....

    And this pack should prove beyond a doubt, there is no such thing as rb3 versions, for those who for some reason continue to predict more are coming.
    There are some songs which could use a "(RB3 Version)" to add harmonies and/or Keys. I would pay for the re-release of the Simon and Garfunkle songs to add harmonies to them. I would love for the Boston songs to be re-released with keys. Since HMX has done this for Bon Jovi and Queen, I would not rule out that it is possible to get more in the future.

    But, for the most part, yeah, it looks like HMX can release Pro guitar/bass upgrades to legacy songs, which is great!

    YES! More Foreigner and two songs I really enjoyed "way back when". I can remember singing both songs while driving my '69 Duster down the road. Yep, I will be getting them. Nice surprise HMX!

    Not sure about the Gaga songs. If people will play the songs I already own, I will purchase them when/if needed.

    wow say burr...you are really showing your age. Not by your musical tastes but by our automobiles...'69 duster? wow...I thought I was bad with a '76 Lemans as my first car...

    Definitely getting Born This Way (sure to be a party favourite) and Hot Blooded (same reasoning)

    Wow, the lack of Foreigner love is shocking

    YES! YES! IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! FOREIGNER FOR THE WIN!

    "Urgent" is going to demolish my speakers and completely destroy my voice, and I'm going to love every minute of it!

    Now can we please, please have an unedited, RB3 version of "Feels like the First Time"?

    Might get some Gaga eventually, definitely never getting any Foreigner.

    Hopefully the amount of people both hoping for "Speechless" in the GI article thread and predicting it in the prediction thread catch HMX' eyes if they ever try to get more Lady Gaga. I'll be getting this pack, but disappointed overall in the song choices (moreso that it's three instead of five or six)

    Foreigner is a nice surprise. Definitely getting both whenever they're released on PS3. Would've liked a non-cover Jukebox Hero, but I suppose that'll be for another day.

    I had hoped for more tracks from Lady Gaga but I'll certainly snap up what's offered. I'll have to give the Foreigner tracks a listen again before deciding - I don't know them well enough to predict whether I'd enjoy playing them. An okay week for me but ultimately a little disappointing since it's the only week this month I was looking forward to.

    Sweet I've been waiting for more Foreigner. I might get Gaga for my wife and for me to do the Weird Al version.

    Was hoping for the Lady Gaga Pack to be a 6-Pack :( But I guess a 3-pack is fine. They are some great songs :D

    Very excited about the Foreigner songs and the upgrades! I didn't hate the last Gaga set as much as expected and a friend loves them, so I'm likely to get roped into buying those too.

    Ok, the Gaga songs don't sound very fun to play, but only a select few of hers do, so party songs those are. Foreigner is a must buy. Both pro guitar upgrades for me, even if both of them are kind of meh, good songs, but not worth the pro guitar when both bands have better songs for pro guitar.

    In other words, I'm buying it all.

    Ugh, Lady Gaga?

    Anyway, Foreigner is good, I guess.

    I've never listened to Gaga or even liked her, but Love Game sounds quite okay. May becom first of her songs I buy for the game (well, first if you exclude Cartman's version of Poker Face).

    Hot Blooded sounds insanely familiar, so it's likely I'll get it. Don't own either of the legacy upgrade tracks.

    Thanks for including Foreigner so I can at least get something this week. Those are perfect Foreigner choices.


    Song count this week: 2/5

    Awesome week, but would've been nice to get a bigger Foreigner pack with a Jukebox Hero master, because I'll never buy the horrible cover version.

    Is there no guitar in LoveGame? The blog video shows the bass chart instead of the guitar.

    I hope the saxophone in Urgent is charted to guitar.

    Honestly isn't all that bad, it wasn't the right vocals, but still was fun playing it.

    I'm really sad at no mention of the dates never having been confirmed, but rather edited to Monday and leaving it at that. Really hope it's true, or else there will be a ton of upset people.

    The blog videos only show three instruments + vocals for a song. The absence of an instrument in a blog video does not necessarily indicate that the instrument will be absent from gameplay.

    The cover really isn't that bad, the vocals are no where near as good as the originals, but they are still decent for a cover, and all the instruments sound fantastic, speaking of Foreigner, I still need to buy Headknocker.....

    All the other videos show keys and guitar, so I assume because it shows bass instead of guitar, there's no part.
