The Roman calvary choirs are not the only things singing. Person-Man
Ah Viva La Vida. You have now redeemed yourself as a Rockband song for me.

When you start singing you are beginning in a middle tone that spreads on threw out the hole song (Except the chorus) that is very comfortable, easy and smooth to play. There is no super low notes in this song, only medium and high.

The Chorus is by far my favorite part. When your singing it is much MUCH higher pitch than rest of the song. Its not challenging tho, its a comfortable high that any one can hit and not strain.

Wrap Up: This song is a perfect buy for a strict vocalist (and i don't use strict loosely). If you are not then i don't recommend you buy this song, just save your money for when The Darkness come to rockband and buy that :)

I give this song a 5/5. Great buy for a vocalist.

Yes, you really are playing a guitar, but... Bront
Yes, it really is a guitar in there, it's just very, very quiet most of the time.

You get a fairly easy 3 part chord mix for most of the song when you're playing, and there are a few breaks where you're doing almost nothing, with an occasional guitar flare (where you hear it as a guitar more). Towards the end, there's a 2 part chord fest that's a nice change, but there's not much to the chart. It's not really challenging other than the chance of messing up a 3 part chord.

Somehow, I still found it fun, but it's not a great chart, and clearly not something to buy if you're looking at it for the guitar chart. If you like the song, or throw parties for folks who will like it, it's a must have in your library just because of it's popularity, but that still doesn't help this chart be anything other than not that exciting. However, simplicity is nice for voxtaring, which would probably be fun on this song.

Not too bad when you play, but... Bront
It's a standard eight note and sustain chart when you're playing. It's not bad, as the rhythm mixes up a bit, but it's hardly a challenge, nor really that interesting, and by itself might be a 2-3 star track. However, more often than not, you're not playing anything. Nada. Fore more than 2 minutes (possibly as much as 3) of the 4 minute song, you sit there hoping you might get some notes. Now, the notes aren't all at the end thank goodness, but that means that you're lucky to get in 30 seconds of straight playing.

Look, the song is a good song. It will probably be a hit at parties, folks know it, and it looks fun on vox and keys, but if you don't play Vox, Keys, or throw parties, pass unless you're a big fan of the song, as there's just not much here for the plastic guitarist on either instrument, and it's one of the most boring DLC Bass charts we've gotten in a long time.

Welcome to 3 Note Hell. Person-Man
This song..... Not much I can say (Thats good) about it. First off the "guitar" If thats what you want to call it is boring as balls. Its a repetitive 3-2-3 note pattern for the whole song! The only excitement is during the brake down of the song when it actually changes.. Cant really explain it, but its different. Another problem with the song is the fact that it is not a guitar your playing... IDK if its a bell.. Or a harp, or something. Ugh, I love this song with all my heart but its not meant for Rockband. (Or for guitar at least)

I rate this song a 2 out of 5

Meh, this song really isn't for drums Madotsuki
For the majority of this song you're mostly playing some consistent kicks until the choruses where you'll do a quick roll followed by some yellow tom hits (the bell sound) every other beat as the consistent kicks continue.
And thats pretty much the whole chart, this song really isn't a drums song.
Overall, this song is pretty poor on drums, without anything really interesting at all, besides the few rolls every once in awhile. I'm giving this a 2/5 because at least you're playing something during the whole thing.

The song's best instrument sageamagoo
Pro Keys are great for this. Lots of variety. Fantastic for middle-tier.

It's a really nice song... brunohoo
...but the drums are boring. There are just a few roll streaks and, moreover, the rest of the song is just on bass pedal. Is this a good song? Yes. Is this a good, funny song on drums? No.
