Aw yeah Hip To Be Square!

Wondered why RB never went after that one for the Huey Lewis pack.

Heard of Higher Love, but not too jazzed on it.
Continuing to make DLCQP awesome.
Why else would I still be here?!

Lay It Down did not meet my expectations, Round and Round is an absolute blast and was hopin' for something like that but I felt way more trapped in a box playing this one. Still an above average guitar part (even though I think the chords feel a li'l awkward) and an average bass part, but it's not the knockout hit I expected it to be, for my own tastes I would have waited for it to be on sale if I had known I'd feel this way but gambled and lost.

Higher Love is a very middle of the road experience, nothing terribly surprising on either part but they're passable. Kinda surprised they didn't alt-chart some during the chorus for lead, I feel the synth horns are the way more iconic part there but I guess I am biased for horns.

Hip to Be Square is a pretty fun song, the preview shows the worst part on bass for some reason? Whatever. An enjoyable experience on guitar and bass, the one I recommend most of the pack. Again I feel like the horns are iconic enough to have been charted to lead, but I guess I should go forward assuming there's no actual guidelines for alt-charting which will just make the whole thing frustrating when an oddball pops back up again.

Alright pack, pick 'em up if you like 'em, give 'em another look during a sale. Still can't believe we got just one Huey Lewis and the News song, but it's definitely the one I wanted most. Hopin' to see I Want a New Drug and expectin' to see The Power of Love tossed into later mixes, if not a full pack for the band.
