Recognize these songs?

Don’t feel bad if you only recognize these songs, which are awesome, only by the commercials.  Neither Goldfrapp or Empire of the Sun have made it in the US yet, but their songs have shown up in our commercials.

Vizio: Empire of the Sun “We the People”

Gameboy: Goldfrapp “Strict machine”  This is the ad from which I found out about Goldfrapp.  I just had to find out what the song was and who sang it.

Target: “Fly Me Away” 2006

Spin that record DJ Hero

DJ Hero looks interesting, not as good as Guitar Hero but interesting.   Game play looks similar to guitar hero. Hit the right notes on time.  Thing is you’re mixing songs in this game.  The songs look good, but the mixes are going to carry the game.  If they aren’t good then the game won’t be either.  I’m hooked on the Guitar Hero franchise I  may get this when its used and cheap, but right know I’m not planning on it.  I’m still thinking about getting Guitar Hero 5, because I haven’t bought it yet.

If you played it what do you think?

PokerIsland Quest

Thanks to someone on the Lady Gaga blog I found a game that’s kind of cool called Poker Island Quest.  Supposedly it has three levels, but I’m yet to get through the first.  The game lets you place as Lady Gaga.  In the first level she is in search of a magic stick (isn’t that from a different song), car keys and a microphone.  There’s a time limit and if the paparazzi take a picture of her she slows down.  So that means through cards at them. 

The game opens up with actually clips of Lady Gaga from a commercial see filmed while overseas (I can’t remember exactly where).  And then shows a comic book page with direction of the game.  The whole time (at least in the first level) the game plays a loop from poker face. I like it, although I kind of wish they would just play the whole instrumental.

Have you played this game? What do you think about it?
