    Funny, that. The DLC that's been coming seems to be mimicking the only GH DLC I bought, which was as soon as 2112 was announced for RB last year.

    Closer was one of them. Sex And Candy was another. There's every chance we'll get another Soundgarden pack soon, it might have Hands All Over in it.

    Also, I haven't heard the full song, but does it even have guitar? I know most modern pop either doesn't have guitar or it's not very prominent.

    Either none at all or the same amount that "Fireflies" had.

    Ah. Well, I'm staying away from that. Hoping for a better week next week!

    There's a re-record? Ruh-roh.

    But I am slightly disappointed people don't even recognize Sex and Candy. Feeling old already. :/

    "Sex and Candy" is on the "90's songs I used to hear all the time when hitting bars when I turned 21 playlist."

    It's an essential! Now somebody figure out how to do something with "Flagpole Sitta".

    In GH. They mimicked the song to the best of their ability, but they just sound old and out of touch and lame. I felt cheated when I bought it a year ago.

    If it's the case here, HMX will have a hard time convincing me to get that same version again.

    This video sums up what I think of this DLC:

    Sex and Candy - Never heard of it
    Call Me Maybe - NO!

    Woah!

    I'll probably get Call Me Maybe for parties. Pretty cool song for a good laugh.

    First time I heard Sex and Candy. Pass on this one.

    Minotaur Project on RBN, cool stuff!

    There is TONS of guitar in it, just it's soooo very quiet that you can't hear it. No, I am serious. HMX has some major upping in the sound to do. The reason why everyone wants it is it's become a viral song where it's basically just like Friday.

    Will be getting both. Call Me Maybe will be fun to laugh and sing along to.

    Bummed about the RBN releases. Nothing there for me. I was hoping to see either "All Bodies" or "The Distance," if not both, since 30 days is up for them, but neither. Sadface =(

    Well, remember that GH had to get a rerecord of "Cult of Personality" and we got the real thing. So it might not be a rerecord.

    Really? Hah. Well I wouldn't know because I'm never going to listen to the song for obvious reasons. But that sounds interesting, I'll certainly look at the tiers when it gets released.

    But Harmonix has done "sound-upping" before to certain instruments so I wouldn't be surprised if they did it again.

    Harmonix, you know what's the only thing I like more than weeks were I'd buy everything?

    Weeks where I'd buy nothing, so I have time to catch up.

    And I have a lot of catching up to do, so thank you!

    I'm gonna pass on this...

    The meme-song is horrid, and I was never a fan of Sex & Candy, especially the mix on GH was ****e

    The thing is, it's just a bunch of chords if I recall. Maybe two or three different chord variations? Either that or there is chords mixed with a few single note strums. I think the guitar riff is mainly in the chorus.

    Assuming Sex and Candy is the original version, buying both.

    People not buying Call Me Maybe: Do you not have parties with girls at them?

    It most definitely does. There's some pretty cool guitar hidden in the background of the chorus.

    I know because the guitarist was rippin' it at the concert when I was like TEN FEET AWAY FROM HER.

    I haven't had a party at my house for years. Or had anyone over for over a year, for that matter

    True, there's every chance we'll get the original. But while the story of Cult Of Personality's rebelliousness in getting the master version has been told, the re-record of Sex And Candy just kind of ended up in our laps, leading me to believe it isn't any more complicated than "the masters are unattainable/broken and busted."

    I could be wrong. I damn well hope I am.

    Songs are seldom played in concert precisely how they are on studio versions.

    Although assembly-line teenpop might be the exception.

    Oh. This is exactly what I meant to say, only said far better.

    The difference is that people listened to Friday and liked it because it was bad, with its lack of rhyme scheme or sense of meter. Call Me Maybe is a straight-up pop confection that can actually be enjoyed unironically.

    Yeah, I know. But if you listen closely to the studio version, you can hear it especially in the chorus.

    Add the songs to the "so overplayed they are grating" list.

    What of Gangnam Style? That just confuses the hell out of me.

    I mean, I want it for RB, but that's beside the point.

    I know what "Sex and Candy" is now! Awesome! I just didn't recognize the title. I'm buying both of these, and I am quite excited about it.
