Song Speculation: Surprise surprise, Norah Jones comes to Rocksmith

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Quite a change from our previous DLC, but we have a brand new artist to the Rocksmith Library!

Let’s check out RollingStone222’s clue for this week.

Don’t ask me… I’m no mathematician

What do the numbers mean?

very quick minded of you

Maybe?

Surprise! 😲

It’s a THREE pack!


This is the first time @NorahJones has been in a music game (outside of Karaoke Revolution and Lips)

What follows is speculation

Would be remiss if this wasn’t included, so jazzy

Tell it like it is girl

B A N G E R – A L E R T


Are you excited for the addition of @NorahJones to the Rocksmith library or are you now looking toward June to satisfy your DLC addiction? Let us know!

I just don’t like Tom Morello ….so I get all revved up sometimes, misplaced anger I suppose.

Wow. Kinda hurt by this one. While I like Norah’s first 2 CDs and love Sunrise,, it feels like we’re scratching the surface on a genre here. Wish they’d gone full on George Benson or Fourplay.

GREAT song pick as mostly! Gonna rip them up on bass. I hope Chasing Pirates is on it, the bass on that one is just the bees niece’ knees!

I’m sort of excited for this one her style of jazz, country, blues and pop is very unique. I have been hoping that one day we get some classic jazz guitar but it’s getting closer at least

Hey I’ve got a question and this seems like the group who would know. Since some of us, when we actually have the time and say at 2am like to turn this game on and have been using it for out own amusement. I’m fairly certain that i can’t be the only one who has quite literally made thousands of song requests. So here is the question because i know i have, has anyone else successfully requested a song more then once if not even more then twice? Does this mean that after a certain time they just throw out our requests? Also what do you find to be the sucsess rate of your requests, especially if youve been using for more then 5 years. Mine is under 1%. Regaurdlesx of genre, sales, influnce ect.. Jackie brenston`s rocket 88 is the first r’n’r song with the first distorted guitar ever recorded. Would be an awesome song. We dont have it. Imagine any genre without distorted guitars. Thats a wtf kind of thing. Like lemmy telling rollins he remembers when there was no r’n’r. Thank god we dont live in a rosemary clooney world. Although we would still have Django and leadbelly. Still would be very different.

Literally none. I like tom waits, the doors, sepultura, chuck berry, godflesh, tom petty, nin, leadbelly, ramones, the stooges/iggy and the stooges/iggy pop, django Reinhardt, black sabbath, 13th floor elevators, the velvet underground, lou reed, john cale, howlin’ wolf, louie armstrong, slipknot, stone sour, eels, johnny winter, treat her right, morphine, slim harpo, ccr, lightnin hopkins, john lee hooker, muddy waters, johnny thunders, new york dolls, and at least a few hundred others but nothing pop. Hate micheal jackson, madona, loiue prima, tlc, beiber, fleetwood mac anything on the radio or popular on youtube essentially. Only like musicians who write their own songs, play thier own instruments and aren’t autotuned. Sorry dude.

I’ve been requesting for about five years and have probably had about 15-20 of my requests become dlc. I make a point of requesting songs that I think have a fair chance of making it though. I know what bands they can’t get, I go for songs that are/were popular or that appeared in other music games and I don’t bother requesting that rare 70’s funk song that I like but that no one else has ever heard of or cares about.

Hi Oni. The system doesn’t let a person request a song more than once. It used to, and some brave soul requested one song which shall remain nameless a whopping 403 times. We threw out 402 of them. That is the only time we will throw out a song request — when it’s duplicated by the same person, or someone uses spam accounts to try to flood the box.

All requests go into the same database we’ve kept for several years, whether those were submitted several years or several hours ago. We use this data a lot to try to predict what will be successful and which specific tracks we ask for from any given artist, so that we hopefully pick the “right” songs for the most people who like that band. But the requests persist and do not expire; every request you’ve ever made has been recorded and is still in our database.

Here’s an FAQ about song selection, requests, licensing, and basically a lot of stuff related to your question here. 🙂 https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/895062-Song-Selection-FAQ-Forums

Patience is a huge thing here. Perfect example: many of the artist you mention take a while, and as Ubisoft has mentioned, good timing, to acquire permission for use in Rocksmith. One thing that I would think helps is to have a wide variety of tastes; however, the biggest thing is patience. There’s so much music to get to, no one person is going to be perfectly satisfied. For me 2016 leading into 2017 was a peak time period. In a similar way to what Wisenheimer mentioned, I try to request what will actually have a chance. For example, as a fan of Bob Marley, I didn’t go in and request a whole lot of deep album cuts. I prefer Satisfy My Soul Babe as apposed to Satisfy My Soul. Since the later song is more well known and has a greater chance, that’s the one I requested. On the flip side, Ubisoft has to accept what the artist/label is willing to give out. As you can see from April last year, many of us prefer the live version of No Woman No Cry. Ubisoft got the album version. I take that as a victory that at lease we got something. I will say that occasionally, I will request a deep cut here or there. While I’m sure we’ll never see Van Halen, I toss in a deep cut every so often such as Balichutherium, Aftershock, and D.O.A. You never know what could happen. And with that thought, I still go in and request artists like Zapp, Cameo, OutKast, Peter Green era Fleetwood Mac, the Dixie Chicks, Brad Paisley, the Black Crows, and Prince. I don’t honestly expect that ANY of them, save for maybe Paisley, to ever make it to this game. The thing is you never know unless… Read more »

I’ve had about a dozen songs I’ve requested get in game.

I’m surprised we haven’t had The Police pack 2, or Maiden pack 2.

Hell you know The Ramones could do a ten pack and it would only take a week to transcribe but no pack for them yet.

Just have to keep waiting, it only lets you request a song once.

Wow, instead of cool chick who plays guitar we get one who writes songs for your grandparents to dry hump to. Rocksmith people have lost their mind

Oooh, Lawd, you just hit a nerve. Blues party.

Yes, please allow Willie Mae to address the hound dog in the room, and don’t forget to bring in Koko Taylor (yes Wolf did that song first but Koko really put that stankonia) I’m sure Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, and a young Aretha will join in.

Oh, you’d have to close things out right. Ladies and gentlemen, please pick up your SG and lets someday usher Sister Rosetta Tharpe to the front of the congregation. Could probably use some added assistance from Jimmie Vaughan and Lou Ann Barton as too.

Yeah it’s time for some stick to your ribs blues.

POP doesnt only refer to popular music that you don’t like, it includes all pop-ular music.

Example RHCP are one of the most requested bands for rocksmith, and most of their singles have received serious radio play, that makes them “pop” (pop-rock)

Pop is rarely a genre on its own, its more a label, with a bad image.

It would be foolish for Rocksmith not to get popular music.

Bro, you seriously need to chill and stop being the self-appointed message board police! People can have opinions and thus why MESSAGE BOARDS ARE CREATED! You are quite a bore, but I am pretty sure you have heard that many times. Stop taking life so seriously and stop getting so butt hurt by opinions of others that don’t conform to yours.
