SingStore’s May Top 20

It may still be less than three weeks old but there is so much good stuff going up on the EU PlayStation Blog, not to mention the frequent appearance of TSA articles in their PlayStation Conversation section, that we could almost forgive them the fact that we got our blog nearly two years later than the US.

The latest post to go up is the top 20 biggest sellers in May on SingStar’s SingStore.  A chart is something seemingly obvious that SingStar has been missing.  Sure there’s a Hot Downloads section on the SingStar website but that has always seemed more of a marketing tool, like the top downloads list that used to appear on the PSN Store, than something that serves the community, as well as the marketing department, in the way the chart will do.


There are some surprises in the top 20.  The presence of Evanescence’s Bring Me To Life at #1 seems to suggest that the SingStar community is quite optimistic when drunk if they think they can hit and hold notes as well as Amy Lee.

Michael Bolton is a surprise entry at #7 with How Am I Supposed To Live Without You.  Seriously people, you are handing over good money for songs like that?  Then there is Stacy’s Mom at #11 which suggests that alcopop-fuelled teenage boys are willing to spend a pound on their sister’s SingStar account to watch the video a few times.

We are promised that this is the first of what will be regular monthly charts appearing on the EU Blog following requests by the community.  Those of us here at TSA Towers that are prone to a little weekend crooning are pleased to see another example of PlayStation fans being listened to, even if it encourages us to spend a little more money on tracks we may have missed.
