I wasn't impressed with Nintendo's Wii Music back at E3, but I may have to take back a few of the negative things I've said about it now that I've seen the list of licensed songs that are included in the North American version of the game. Yes, mixed in with public domain nursery rhyme songs and familiar Nintendo tunes are actual pop and rock songs that once graced the FM dial. That's nothing new for the gaming industry these days (Rock Band and Guitar Hero say hello), but there is one song in the list of fourteen licensed tunes that made me sit up and take notice: "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham!.
OK, now I'm mildly intrigued. I may have to rent Wii Music sometime after all. If it can take the gray skies out of my way and make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day, then I don't want to miss it when the game hits that high.
