DLC Week of 12/28: New Year's Eve 2017 Pack!

It’s time to end another year, and we’ve got another pack of themed songs for the occasion!

Blue Swede leads the way with “Hooked On A Feeling” from the album of the same name. A gigantic debut single, it hit #1 on charts very quickly and earned the band worldwide acclaim. An enduring hit supported by regular appearances in media, it’s as relevant in the 2010s as ever. Both guitar and bass have fun parts with a good amount of movement, and drums and vocals feature the well-known back-and-forth leading into the chorus. When playing this song, you’ll definitely feel like you’re in space.

The original version of “Come On Eileen” joins Rock Band this week, from Dexys Midnight Runners. The band’s first #1 hit in America and second #1 in the UK, which won the band Best British Single at the Brit Awards, it’s fondly considered one of the best songs of the 1980s. The song’s full of tempo and key changes, so every instrument changes things up, but where the song really shines is in the vocals. There’s a ton of range to match, and octave jumps happen on the spot. The bridge even features three different lines at once, so it’ll take some practice to parse.

Europe rounds out the pack with an excellent Rewind in the form of “The Final Countdown”. It’s a song everyone knows, having topped the charts in over two dozen countries. A regular performance at every Europe live show since its release, and even a staple at sporting events, “The Final Countdown” remains a huge song to this day. The iconic synth line is placed on the guitar before going into a gallop around a tough guitar solo. Big ‘80s drums surround vocals that everyone can sing along to, so feel free to pick up a microphone!

New Year's Eve 2017 Pack will be available for $5.49. Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99 each. The Rock Band Rivals Season 4 Spotlight Pass Plus can be purchased for $15.99.
