1 - How It Works
-------------------

  1.1 - Microphones

No, Singstar cannot be played with just any regular old microphones.
You MUST use the Singstar Microphones and no other. However these 
Singstar Microphones can be used for other karaoke games. Disney 
Sing It! and High School Musicial Sing It! Karaoke Microphones can 
also be used. Blue microphone usually means Player 1. Red = Player 2.

  1.2 - Game Modes

      - Solo

Solo. You sing solo and compete in rankings. Duet songs must be split 
into halves to be sung (ie you sing Timbaland's part, not Nelly's) 
There is also the option of singing 2 Player, in which case one song 
is sung between two players. All songs will become Duets and all expect 
for the two original Duet songs will have new features.

Singstar Pop II features rapping. Umbrella, Promiscous and Get It Shawty
 all have rapping parts that can be turned off if chosen. Rapping is a 
new feature to Singstar. Basically it's notes who's pitches are not shown.
 Rap is scored based both of speed and pitch. If you hit each word on 
the beat then you will get some points. However rap also has pitches. Mea
ning that words spoken loudly need to be spoken loudly. Get It Shawty 
has the easiest rapping parts as the lyrics are slower. Jay-Z's part in 
Umbrella is the most difficult as the lyrics are somewhat unintellegable 
and very fast. Promiscuous is easier as the lyrics are clearer. Nelly's 
verses are somewhat easier than Timbaland's, although her vocals are 
more difficult.


      - Party

Rounds of singing for more than two people. Divided into teams. For 
this RAP scoring is always on.

Rapping is counted off im Umbrella however.



  1.3 - Ranking

You can rank your scores in each song. The game starts out with several 
already made records but they are low and easy to beat. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2 - Track Listing
-----------------
This section will feature singing tips for each song.

  2.1 - 3 Doors Down - When I'm Gone
      This song is very easy to sing.

  2.2 - Ashlee Simpson - Boyfriend
      This song is very easy to sing. The "Ha" in the beginning is 
a freestyle score so you don't have to worry. The latter of the song 
has a different chorus than the first. Be careful.

  2.3 - Avril Lavigne - My Happy Ending
      This song is one of the easiest to sing. Watch out for breathing 
control.

  2.4 - Boys Like Girls - The Great Escape
      Very difficult if sung in original voice. Try to use falseletto 
in some parts. You'll sound weird, but score well.

  2.5 - Colbie Caillat - Bubbly
      Easiest song in game. I'm serious.

  2.6 - Dixie Chicks - Not Ready To Make Nice
      Very difficult if you don't know the song. The tone changes in 
the second half of the song.

  2.7 - Duran Duran - Oridinary World
      This song is very easy to sing.

  2.8 - Evanscence - Bring Me To Life
      A very hard to sing song. There are two ways you can sing this. 
One is to use an falestto (high pitched) voice that is much like 
Amy's. Another is to sing in a lower tone (which is much easier). There 
is a high note near the end of the song that lasts for nearly 20 seconds.

  2.9 - Fall Out Boy - Thnks Fr Th Mrmrs
      Very difficult if you don't know the song. 

  2.10 - Fergie - Big Girls Don't Cry
      Another extremely easy song. Big Girls Don't Cry has no particular 
long notes or high pitches. Notes seperate into even sections. 

  2.11 - Gwen Stefani - The Sweet Escape
      Moderate song. Akon's higher notes are difficult. Gwen sings 
several fast paced lyrics which you have to watch out for.

  2.12 - The Hives - Tick Tick Boom
      Basically the only real rock song here. Watch out for the long 
high notes and the overall rock tone. Using a pop style approach won't 
score you many points. Note that boom is freestyle while the ticks 
usually are not.

  2.13 - Jennifer Lopez - Jenny From The Block
      A song with a very long introduction. Fairly easy to sing.

  2.14 - Lifehouse - First Time
      Another boy band pop song. This one is slighter easier than 
The Great Escape in terms of chorus but can be difficult if you 
don't know the song very well.

  2.15 - Lily Allen - Littlest Things
      Lily Allen has an very unique voice-hence making this song very 
difficult to sing. Try listening to the preview before tackling this song.

  2.16 - Lloyd - Get It Shawty (Rap)
      Song with rap parts in it. The singing is easy as long as you watch 
your breath. The real challenge is the rapping, but with practice you 
should be able to get it.

  2.17 - Maroon 5 - Makes Me Wonder
      A very interesting song. Moderate difficulty. The video is very int
eresting to watch. The higher notes can be reached by straining your voice 
a bit or by whistling it through.

  2.18 - Matchbox 20 - How Far We've Come
      A song with a catchy chorus, this is very easy to sing.

  2.19 - Michelle Branch - Breathe
      Basically a slightly more difficult version of Big Girls Don't Cry. 
Breathe has some long range higher pitch notes in between easy short 
notes.

  2.20 - Nelly Furtado - Promiscuous (Duet) (Rap)
     You can choose whether to rap or not. Without the rap this song is 
still extremely difficult. Although you may be very familiar with this 
song you will still find it extremely difficult to sing. The rap is short 
and difficult to match while the higher ranges of Nelly Furtado's parts 
is extremely difficult to sing. Usually you will tend to get better with 
Timbaland's vocals than Nelly's. Both rap parts are extremely difficult.

  2.22 - Norah Jones - Don't Know Why
     Another of the easiest songs possible. This is very slow and the only 
highlight is the suspended note in the end. 

  2.23 - The Outfit - Your Love
     A hit from the golden times, Your Love is actually very easy to sing. 
It's very repetitive.

  2.24 - Peter Bjorn and John - Young Folks (Duet)
     You can choose between Peter's vocals or Victoria's. Peter sings 
first. It's a rather easy song to sing. You will want to watch out for the 
chorus in the end as it changes.

  2.25 - P!nk - Who Knew
     Pink tones down her rocker chick style in Who Knew. Again a moderate 
song to sing. If you know the song well then there's no reason to score 
some high points here.

  2.26 - Plain White T's - Hey There Delilah 
     Finally an easy song sung by a guy (for all your guys too squemish 
to belt out to Fergie). No expections, very easy song.

  2.27 - Rihanna - Umbrella (Rap)
     You have a choice of rapping Jay-Z's rap in the intro verse. The rap 
is very hard and will require a lot of practice. The actual singing is 
very easy and the only note that proves some difficuly is the longer 
two pitch note near the very end.

  2.28 - Santana - Into The Night
     Chad C from Nickelback sings the song, rather than Santana. Another 
rock ballad, this one is one of the harder songs.

  2.29 - Steriogram - Walkie Talkie Man
     Pure punk rock, walkie talkie man is very difficult if you're not into 
the style.

  2.30 - Sum 41 - Fat Lip
     Again, this is another punk rock song and is very difficult if you 
don't know the style well.
