My Thoughts:

There is no denying that the 80's was the best musical era.  Right?!  Well, you grew up in the 80's like I did, then you probably think so.  From teased hair, to leg warmers and posters of pop singers covering my bedroom walls, I was always walking around with my Walkman or listening to my pink boom box radio with girlfriends, as we dreamed about meeting Rick Springfield and other dreamy 80's singers and actors. :-)  There was something about this era and its music that remains just as popular today.  Come on, if you are are fan of Glee and other karaoke type shows, many of the songs being sung are from artists who made it big in the 80's.  Last week on Glee, they payed tribute to Billy Joel, singing many of his iconic hits from the 80's. :-)

So, when asked to review the "We Sing 80's" for the Wii from Nordic Games, how could I say, "No."  I thought this would make for a fun game night with family and friends, or fun alternative to our at-home movie date nights, my husband and I have each week.  While my husband is not a fan of singing, after a few glasses of wine, he can belt out Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" like the rest of us. :-)  I have to say that out of all the 80's sing along games I have played over the years, this Wii game from Nordic Games has all my favorite chart toppers.  Fans of the 80's will know each and every song and artist, and will have a blast singing along solo or with a group.  And, with the microphones that are included with the game, you can't get help but get into the game, and want to sing.  When I first took to the microphone and started to sing Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now," I had flashbacks of singing in my bedroom as a teen into my gel hairbrush to this song. :-)  Ahh, those were the good 'ole days, that I am getting to relive with family and friends each and every time I pull out "We Sing 80's" on game night. Even my daughters are getting into the songs, and love pretending to be rock stars, singing into the microphones.

If you are fan of 80's music or love singing karaoke, then you will want to pick up this Wii game.  With 30 songs to sing along to, this sing-along game with provide hours of karaoke enjoyment, laughs and memories to last a lifetime.  I can't wait to share this game tomorrow with family and friends who are staying over after Thanksgiving dinner.  They have no idea what is in store for them, but will be in for a treat. :-)
