This week’s Thursday Throwback pick is one of my favorite tracks in the history of rhythm gaming, one that I play on a regular basis. This song also happens to be from one of my favorite artists, as well. What a coincidence, hey?
British rock band Bad Company formed in 1973, and were active on and off until 2010. The band released over ten studio albums, five live albums, and over 25 singles, earning them a number of multi-platinum records. The band has only had two songs released for Rock Band: Shooting Star, featured on the Rock Band 2 disc, and this week’s Thursday Throwback pick, Can’t Get Enough.
Can’t Get Enough was the Bad Company’s breakthrough hit, which rocketed up the charts to the top of the US charts, and still remains one of the band’s most popular songs. Originally released for Rock Band on the last week of November in 2010, it was the first song released after Rock Band 3 that didn’t feature Keys, prompting (now clearly unfounded) fears that future DLC would not feature Keys charts.
This song is fun on all instruments. 4-tier guitar has that iconic riff which will keep your fingers in check, and includes two solos, one in the middle and one at the end. 2-tier bass is one of my favorite bass charts, which never gets boring or repetitive, and unlike many other songs, doesn’t get washed out by the other instruments in the mix. 4-tier drums have a varied chart, with lots of mini fills to break the song up, along with lots of cymbal usage. The latter part features lots of quick bass pedal charting, so be careful that it doesn’t take you by surprise. Although 4-tier, I haven’t had any problems with the vocals. Paul Rodgers voice goes just as well with this song, as did with Shooting Star. Tambourine parts are also present in the vocal charts.
