DLC Week of 6/22: Cyndi Lauper and Paramore!
Rock Band 4 is having tons of fun this week as tracks from Cyndi Lauper and Paramore join the platform.
“Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper hits the Music Store this week, joining the previous release, “Time After Time”. The debut single by Cyndi Lauper, “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, quickly becoming a feminist anthem and an iconic ‘80s hit. When playing vocals, be ready for a challenge, as the song is deceptively hard. The octave range is impressively high, but without the use of any falsetto. The guitar plays the keyboard solo, which has several quick bursts of notes in it.
Coming from the Rock Band VR soundtrack, “Ain’t It Fun” by Paramore also releases this week. Winning Best Rock Song at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, it was the band’s first Grammy and the first female-fronted track to win Best Rock Song since 1999!. Critically hailed for its musical diversity, “Ain’t It Fun” became Paramore’s highest-charting single, ultimately reaching #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The bassline is one of the strong suits of the song, being rated a bit tougher than the guitar or drums. Hayley Williams on her own is already a vocal powerhouse, but with a choir backing her up during this track, it goes above and beyond.
Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99 each.
