    I love weeks like this. Might not get Cetera, but otherwise it's all bought!

    Wow, two Billboard #1s and an Academy Award nominee. Very not bad. Would any song on here have been on my personal list of must haves? Nah. Will I buy all 5? Probably. Will they be perfect for Valentine's Day? You betcha.

    Just calling this out since it's 1) awesome and 2) kind of unusual: the Pro upgrade is bundled with the Extreme track for FREE. When charting out the song and looking at the instrumentation available (it's not a full band, only vocals and guitar I believe) we thought it'd be a nice bonus to include the Pro upgrade to add a bit of additional value to the track. Hope you guys dig it.

    Be sure to keep an eye out for the livestream next Monday where we'll be singing these sultry tunes for you during the chart preview.

    Hey I actually guessed part of the announcement right, awesome.

    This is, indeed, awesome! Thanks!

    Pardon me for repeating myself, but by the time I edited my original post the stampede had already started. So just in case: May we get the length on "Tainted Love"? That will give an idea of which of the umpteen versions of the song will be in the game.

    With harmonies, I presume?

    can't stand REO or Cetera.

    "Keep On Loving You" is perhaps the best song about a cuckolded guy who stuck with his lady ever recorded.

    I like the sentiment of the free upgrade, but the songs as a whole leave alot to be desired for me.

    Just give it some time. It took a bit of time for the trailer to start playing for me. Sadly, as expected, the Nazareth re-record sounds quite poor just as "Hair of the Dog" did. Still, the fact that the band was willing to re-record the song so that the masters could be used for this game is admirable. As a result of that, I will indeed be buying it. It's kind of sad, really, that their lead singer has lost his ability to sing as he did back then, but the lifestyles of rockers from the 1970's generally leads to that.

    You guys never disappoint on the VD songs - great job - picking up all 5.. only question - does the tainted love version mix with "where did our love go"?

    Hubby is very happy about the Nazareth tune. We will be getting all of them.

    This is great! The DLC quality has definitely been increasing with bi-weekly releases.

    I only knew Tainted Love of the top of my head. Headed over to YouTube and had two "Oh THAT song!" moments with More Than Words and Love Hurts.

    I didn't care for Keep On Loving You or Glory of Love.

    3/5. This is great, HMX!!

    My "No extra charge for pro upgrade" prediction was right. Yay.

    HMXHenry, can get get a track time on "Tainted Love"? There's, like, 67 different versions of that song floating around, some of which include "Where Did Our Love Go" at the end. Are we talking somewhere close to the 2:30 original version, the 4:00 radio edit, or the 8-minute shebang that had everything?
    I'll reach out to the Audio Team today, but the office is closed due to a storm warning so it may be harder than usual to reach people at home. The 8:58 extended dance cut seems VERY unlikely, and since both the album and single cut clock in around 2:34 - 2:41 that seems like the most reasonable assumption. I'll follow up when I hear back, possibly by Monday at the absolute latest.

    These are all good songs. Nice.

    It's unfortunate that they aren't a pack.

    So the thing about releasing content from multiple bands on multiple labels is that they don't always want to play nice. The difficulty in licensing and bundling increases with every additional artist you add, which is why, historically, we've released very few mixed artist / label packs.

    This is a very nice treat for the Pro guys. And helps "beef up" a track that might have never been released (due to lack of other parts). Great job.

    Please keep this in mind...if this is the only way to make "Dust In The Wind" someday in the far future...

    Thanks, Henry! I forgot, Boston is in the eye of that storm. Y'all stay safe!

    I didn't even know these were two different songs. Queue potential "Black Magic Woman" backlash in 3...2...1...

    It's good to see REO and Nazareth back in the platform again. Their BAAACK!!! Back in the platform again!!!

    Glad to see Soft Cell, Extreme, and Peter Cetera walk this way as well.

    Definitely 4/5 because this is drunken rock cheese at its finest and should make for some grand hilarity. Going to listen to the rerecord and see if this will become 5/5. Awesome week, V-Day's songs are always the best weeks for RB.

    Love it! Buying all 5. Tuesday is going to be a very good day. Having it off for Mardi Gras makes it a perfect Rock Band marathon day :)

    That a song as mellow as "More than Words" is from a band named Extreme...and that's the song their best known for...makes it so awesome.

    Only had to Google Peter Cetera and once I did I recognized it right away. Might have to get the whole set over time. But Extreme and Nazareth are probably top two faves.

    Cool songs. Not sure if I know the Peter Cetera song, though. Definitely grabbing Soft Cell; maybe the REO Speedwagon song too.

    The only thing upsetting about this REO pick is that there is no Can't Fight This Feeling coming with it. Will deffinaltley get this Keep On Loving You anyways.

    Listened to parts of the other 4 songs and didn't hear anything worth getting.

    That will be an "Oh that song!!!" moment when you hear it. Think of any cheesy 80s movie montage when you listen.
