I was going to spend a lengthy paragraph poking fun at the soundtrack to We Cheer, but as I read through the 30-song list I realised that many of these songs are on my iPod right now, so I've no room to criticize. Certainly not "Come Clean" by Hilary Duff, but come on, "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)"? Everyone needs this song on their MP3 player, just in case the occasion for everybody to dance (now) arises. "It Takes Two" by Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock, "Whoomp! (There It Is)", "That's The Way (I Like It)" - all required listening.
I still wouldn't be caught dead buying the game, but if it were to mysteriously make it's way into the pile of games I pick up at my local game store without me noticing I might secretly play it when nobody is looking. Hit the jump for the full track listing.
