Sony has crooned into our news ear this morning that a new version of SingStar is coming to PS2.

This time it takes inspiration from the warbling delights of Rock Ballads, and will be available to buy with or without a microphone in late September.

Paramount to your success when bellowing out Meatloaf or swaying to Duran Duran will be the size of your shoulder pads, audacity of your mullet, and how well timed your clap-and-spin dance is.

The full I-should-play-it-at-my-wedding-for-dad list is below:

  • Air Supply - All Out of Love
  • Alannah Myles - Black Velvet
  • Anastasia - Left Outside Alone
  • Avril Lavigne - I'm With You

  • Europe - Carrie
  • Heart - Alone
  • Jon Secada - Just Another Day
  • Lone Star - Amazed
  • Marc Cohn - Walking In Memphis

  • Mr Big - To Be With You
  • Mr Mister - Broken Wings
  • Mr Mister - Kyrie
