The music, the passion - the dodgy fashion - SingStar '80s allows you to live out your ultimate pop desires as you sing your heart out to a dream list of fully licensed tracks, complete with the original, iconic pop videos. Once you get that microphone they'll never tear you apart...

SingStar '80s features the first era-specific track listing to emerge from the music gurus at London Studio and comes packed with 30 original and totally classic tracks from the early '80s that are guaranteed to throw you back to your school disco days. Recreating the iconic style that defined the era, SingStar '80s brings the decade back to life with a new '80s-themed intro, retro colour scheme, fully licensed tracks from the original artists, and, of course, the videos that ushered in the dawn of music TV.

Providing pop kids with a great excuse to dig out the neon T-shirts, the frilly shirts or lace fingerless gloves, SingStar '80s fills your home with the tunes that topped the charts in Europe and around the world, from leading artists including The Cure, Kate Bush, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Erasure and Simple Minds.
