Yacht Rock Singles sailing in next week

Greetings Rocksmith fans!

Today’s a bit different as we know all five singles headed to Rocksmith 2014 next week. While we aren’t sure if the release will be referred to as Yacht Rock Singles we are gonna call it that anyway!

It all started with a rather lengthy clue posted earlier today by @DanAmrich

Rotated and translated from QuickScript we ended up with:

O’Malley’s was the only watering hole in this sleepy little town. And down the hall I saw her sipping a concoction of pineapple coconut and rum.

I knew the curve of her face. I knew her smile in an instant. Oh it’s you she said icily. She only smile when she lied. I can only stay a little while, I said, ignoring her disapproval. But the way you’ve been treating my friends the sheriff and his buddies, she asked in mock surprise. You’re better off not listening to their advice with their samurai swords. It’s gone too far, Missus Perkins, I said abruptly. And you don’t have to tell me why the gossip gets to flying.

She glanced beyond me as if looking for a way out. “Sometimes I may forget what I’m doing, Missus Perkins, but I don’t forget what I want.” “Don’t say that”, she mumbled. I saw her hand tremble and decided to hold it. “I know it’s hard for you to say the things we both know”, I ventured. “Your love set me free.” She grabbed me like a hungry octopus.

Which referred to five different songs that each person on the forum figured out in less than four hours!

Yacht Rock Singles

On a personal note, Hold The Line has been a song I have been hoping to see on either Guitar Hero or Rock Band for years now. Extremely happy to see my dream come true yet again, thanks UbisoftSF!

Now this is variety! What songs are you grabbing next week? All five? None? Let us know!

its obvious that "dan" has too much say on dlc and its even more sad that this many seniors rely on a video game to live out their never happened rock star dreams. sorry i don't play 8 track music i play music that was written by talented artists not one's on flower power thanks for showing how pathetic you are ubisoft have fun solving puzzles and keep reaching for that rock star

Daryl Hall & John Oates. Baby… More Hall & Oates…. yes…more. Won't make a list of the MANY other songs I hope to see eventually from them… but it's a book. Nice to see.. Hope to see many more. this is a good start.

I love "Africa" one of my favourite songs to listen to from Toto. However, the better song for Rocksmith was chosen in this situation 🙂

Great set, right up there with surf songs a few weeks back. I love that the developers have something for everyone. Dare I say it: some Elvis, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash… it doesn’t have to be “Rock”. Even Segovia.

All three of these guys are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame so… And I’m in total agreement would love to see all three of those artists in the game.

Awesome! Seems to be a more bassy DLC. I wonder when they will actually release a real Rock-n-Roll DLC (meaning more like Elvis, not AC/DC)? It’s just weird we never had any….

I’ll be getting China Grove, Hold the line and maybe the michael McDonald one, it sounds like it’s got a good bassline… I’ll wait until the vids come out for that one. Interesting selection, pretty cool.

Now can we finally get that Admiral Cloudesly Shovell pack I’ve been wanting? What do you mean who the hell is that? 😀

Looks good to me. Not my favourite Hall and Oats track, and I hadn’t heard that Michael McDonald song before (that I can remember), but it feels good to be able to put some money down for a change.

Looking forward to learning ‘Hold the Line’.

Really, though? “Escape”? I’d much rather hear an earlier song written by Rupert Holmes and performed by a band called The Buoys, that being “Timothy”. Anyone remember that? Trapped in a mine? Hints of cannibalism? Anyone?

THANK YOU for knowing about “Timothy.” The only song about cannibalism that ever cracked the top 40 (#17 in 1971).

He also wrote the stage musical “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” and took home a bunch of awards for that.

Hold the Line arriving in a rhythm game makes me happy. Probably one of the 2 songs that Harmonix could not get masters/licenses for when they got Rosanna.

The following GTA San Andreas songs are in Rocksmith:

Heart -- Barracuda
Lynyrd Skynyrd -- Free Bird
Billy Idol -- White Wedding
Living Colour -- Cult of Personality
Alice In Chains -- Them Bones

Hold the Line by Toto will be the 6th GTA San Andreas song to be in Rocksmith which makes me jump for joy, and with a RATM pack coming in the future, Killing in the Name could be the 7th.

Also, Hall and the Oats and The Doobie Brothers have been in GTA Vice City and GTA V respectfully, but the songs listed for next week are NOT the GTA songs.

GTA vice city soundtrack is by far the best, on the other hand, the gta 5 one is a huge piece of shit for the most part.

Oh yeah, GTA Vice City’s soundtrack was awesome. There was always plenty of time to listen to V-Rock. GTA V was meh to me. Only Los Santos Rock, Vinewood Boulevard, Radio Mirror Park, Non-Stop Pop, and Channel X were good to me.

When I saw The Doobie Brothers I thought we can finally get Long train runnin’, but no. Not this time. 🙁

Nonetheless, Hold the Line and China Grove sounded interesting. Will likely purchase.
