Have you already torn through Dance Central and are looking for more? Well fret not because tomorrow (though parts of the press release say "next week") four new songs are coming to Dance Central as well as an update to include a music store to access the DLC.  The songs coming out are:
  • "Weapon of Choice" - Fatboy Slim
  • "Hollaback Girl" - Gwen Stefani
  • "Turnin Me On" - Keri Hilson
  • "Straight Up" - Paula Abdul
I will admit that there weren't too many songs in Dance Central that I actually liked (not my type of music) but for those who tore through the game's main set of songs, enjoy!
