Just Dance

In the words of Lady Gaga, Just Dance, and boy am I dancing. I invested in the Wii game Just Dance at Christmas after watching the adverts on TV and having a quick go on it at the office one day (don't ask). I say "invested" what I mean is searched, hunted and finally tracked the bugger down. A seriously elusive game which was part down to the fabulousness of it and part down to the bargainous of it I should imagine! Yes, it's a snip at under £20 - for a Wii game I think that's good, no?

Anyhow, I am sure I don't need to tell you what it is, it's been quite well publicised but just in case you've been living under a rock...look here.

Don't be fooled! It's not for the fainthearted - it's actually quite intense. Two dance routines on here leave you feeling like you've done an hour on the Wii Fit. You can't go into it halfheartedly, you've really got to get your body moving, even if to be quite fair, you do look a little like a wally. It's definitely a time when your curtains should be firmly closed, and if possible at all, there should be no witnesses the first few times you attempt this game. It's very off-putting when everyone is rolling around laughing at you whilst you bust-a-move to MC Hammer.

It's such a fun game and pretty darn hilarious if you have a group of people doing it together but be warned, if you come around to my house expecting a little bit of a giggle you'll be disappointed. This is a serious sport and I'm rather competitive. I won't be playing for fun, I'll be playing to whip your butt whilst shaking my ass to Who Let The Dogs Out.

I defy you not to sing along - yes it has the lyrics. Even if you think you're not signing, I'll bet my bottom dollar that you are. I swore blind that I wasn't singing along, I was positive. Turns out I was just concentrating so hard I didn't realise. How embarrassing. Had I known I was putting on a full performance and I would have aired my best West End stage voice.

My favourite tracks on the game and the ones I am currently trying to perfect (It's an extremely sad night in the M household if I don't beat my top scores...) are Cyndi Lauper "Girl's Just Want To Have Fun", Katy Perry "Hot and Cold" and my personal favourite (probably because I ROCK at it) New Kids on the Block "Step by Step". I'm also quite impressive at the Spice Girls which was my first public performance. I'd like to say that I was good at all of them but well *cough* my Blondie, Britney and Beach Boys renditions leave a little to be desired.

What would I like to see on Volume 2 of Just Dance (there surely will be a volume two *prays*)? Footloose for sure, Beyonce's Single Ladies is surely a must have? Thriller? There is a serious lack of Michael Jackson action on this game. I'd like to see a bit of Pussycat Dolls and definitely Lady Gaga. I want Steps and Christina Aguilera. I don't ask for a lot do I?

Have you tried the game yet? What would you like to see featured on future volumes?
