Working for the Weekend - A Vocalist Review Xtreme Nights
Everyone should know what this song is by now, and if you don't, then you have no soul! Nah, I'm just joking with you all. In all seriousness, we finally get Loverboy on Rock Band with his biggest hit ever, "Working For the Weekend"! How does this song fair on vocals? Well read on to find out my opinion!

To start the song out, you get to hit a few tambourines in the intro. That's simple enough, but the real heart of this song lays within the actual singing. This song is a real thrill to sing on vocals, either for nostalgia or just for an easy and fun song. Despite being easy with not much pitch change, this song can still be a blast! This song is definitely recommended to any singer who is looking for fun in their Rock Band vocal career. If you are a beginner, and you need an easy practice song, this would be one of the best songs to own, due to it not changing pitches much.

The reason why I say this song is fun is because it is not the boring type of easy. Besides the instrumental section, this song is all singing. The song features a middle to lower pitch while singing, which isn't one of those songs that have a super low section that's hard to hit. You don't need to change your octave to hit the phrases, which makes it less complicated, which adds to the fun for beginning singers.

So my final judgement on Working for the Weekend? I say It deserves a well earned 5 star! With it's nostalgia and it's fun easy vocals, this song is a must have for any vocalist, this song is also fun on other instruments if your wondering. So pick this song up today, or miss out on the goodness that is Loverboy.

not bad for a bassline GoldAnthro
mostly normal speed alt strumming across the fretboard with the occasional quick triple note alt strums separated by a few notes a piece, then back to normal speed alt strumming across the fretboard. somewhat memorable but don't buy it for the bass. This is only a semi irregular rhythm.

I guess all you should really know about this song is that... to be successful at it, you should probably be pretty decent with your secondary hand. "Working for the Weekend" is a good buy - it's a great song to listen to, and play on drums. Not overly difficult, but still somewhat challenging. Recommended.
