Singstar Anthems

Not rated

So, Singstar Anthems. There's not much to say about the game itself; it's like all the other Singstars and you already know whether this selection of tracks appeals to you or not. It didn't appeal to me enough to buy, but I gave it a spin at a friend's house over the weekend, and I have to say that there's one track which causes me particular concern: Making your mind up, by Bucks Fizz.

This song offers some advice on how to comport oneself: specifically, it suggests that you should "try to look as if you don't care less". Obviously, I'm keen to try and follow advice from the mighty Fizz whenever possible, but I have some difficulty with this; I'm willing to give it a try, but I'm not quite sure what to do: should I be aiming to appear more indifferent, or more concerned, or should I be more concerned while looking more indifferent, or vice–versa? Perhaps I should look less as though I don't care, or does looking like I don't care less mean that I don't in fact care very much at all? Curse you, Fizz, for your lyrical ambiguity.

  1. There is only one way to do Singstar and that's to be completely drunk. I thought the new one was Singstar Lame ..? Can't Fight The Moonlight is definitely the best track!!! For Making Your Mind Up you need a rippy skirt and a ridiculously high voice. Hope that helps! Ahem.

  2. With regards to the problem you pose, I believe the Fizz advise you to "Trust your Intuition" on such matters.

    We did speculate about whether, if you had an Eyetoy camera plugged in, there'd be big bonus points for skirt removal at the appropriate point. Turns out not.

    And in fact, the Fizz advise you to trust your inner vision, not your intuition, which is actually less helpful since I long ago learned that my inner visions are in fact not in the least bit trustworthy. Also, the fact that the advice about inner vision follows hot on the heels of the warning not to let my indecision take me from behind leaves me feeling not only confused, but faintly disturbed.

    Bonus points: how many Bucks Fizz songs can you name? We got seven.
