New Lips game arriving in spring

KISS! Tiffany! Gaynor! Chumbawumba.

Microsoft has announced another instalment in Xbox 360 karaoke series Lips is on the way.

Lips: Party Classics will feature 40 "upbeat, festive, dramatic and exhilarating songs" such as "Love Shack" by The B-52s, "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive".

Other tracks announced so far are "Rock and Roll All Nite" by KISS, The Village People's "Y.M.C.A.", "Tubthumping" from Chumbawumba and "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tiffany. The game is due to launch in spring 2010. In the meantime you can download December's new additions to the Lips store, such as "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" by The Temptations, "Right Round" by Flo Rida and "Think" by Aretha Franklin.

There's also the obligatory sleighload of Christmas numbers such as "White Christmas" by Bing and Kylie Minogue's version of "Santa Baby". You can find the full list of new songs over at
