Congratulations to our winner, theq87. Check out his performance of Careless Purchase!

A big thanks to Rockstar Games and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stores for sponsoring this event (and getting Wombat pizaid!).

1) Sign up for a free account on http://www.singshot.com/
It would be helpful (and more fun) if you use the same username that you have on CAG.

2) Record any song you wish, as long as it was originally recorded in the 80s.
There is an 80s section on the website, but it does not contain all the 80s songs in their catalog, so definitely take a look around.

3) When you are done recording your song, it will ask you to enter "tags".
Enter in cagcastgta in the tags space to enter the contest. If you forget to do this, don't worry as you can edit your song later and tag it appropriately.


Most entertaining performance (as judged by CheapyD & Wombat) receives a copy of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stores for the PS2 and an appearance on the CAGcast. The winner will be announced on March 28th's CAGcast, so be sure to get your entries in by March 26th at the latest. Any entries after that may not be considered. One entry per person (but feel free to experiment and change your entry up until contest closing).

I wonder if I'll still be embarrassed given that this is more or less anonymous. By the way, by "Most Entertaining" do you mean that you want something funny, terrible, or really good?

I might do this Cheapy but I'd prefer another game. Maybe "Manhunt 2" for the Wii. Winks at Rockstar.

does the song we choose have to be on the 80's list ? I mean I know it has to be a song from the 80's but the song I wanted to sing wasn't on the list but somehow was still on the site. The song I want to use is from the 80's....88 to be exact if so can I still use it?

edit-oops I missed the part where you told us to look around

I am being repeatedly frustrated as I find that everything I want to sing that is on SingShot is from the 70's or the 90's.

Edit: For now we're going with this: http://www.singshot....rmanceId=237591

As cheapy is a large white man taking over Japan, it seems oddly appropriate.

Edit2: Scobie's is awesome. Theres no one taking that down.
