Ubisoft has announced the entirety of tracks included on the Just Dance 2015 soundtrack, and it’s has a wide-range of offerings. One in particular made me chuckle.

Many songs are quite recent, with a few staples included such as You Spin Me Round by Dead Or Alive and even Walk This Way by Run-DMC and Aerosmith; however, Holding Out For A Hero by Bonnie Tyler is the one which made me laugh a bit.

Unless it’s the dance mix version, in which case, I am totally wrong, I found it a bit od dconsidering the other track listings. Sure it was fun to dance to in 1984, I assume, this song was featured during the “dueling tractors with a scoop” scene in Footloose. Don’t believe me? Watch. There’s no way I would ever be able to dance to that song without thinking of that scene. Worst. Duel. Ever.

I’m mostly confused over Frozen’s “Let it Go” being on the list – unless the game allows for interpretive dance.

Okay, my attempt at being funny isn’t working. Just look at the list below.
