'Sims 3' exclusive: Travie McCoy, My Chemical Romance and more sing in Simlish

Travie-McCoyWhen you turn on a radio, stereo, or jukebox in the new Sims games arriving on Oct. 26, you might find some of your favorite musicians singing in Simlish. Electronic Arts has given the Music Mix an exclusive sneak peek at the artists who have re-recorded their tunes in the popular gaming series’ fictional language, and the list includes some pretty big names.

Selected highlights of the re-recorded Simlish songs in The Sims 3 (for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii) include 3OH!3’s “Double Vision,” Flo Rida and Jovi’s “Fresh I Stay,” and School of Seven Bells’ “Dust Devil.” The Sims 3 Late Night expansion pack (for PC and Mac) will feature Simlish versions of Travie McCoy’s “Need You,” My Chemical Romance’s “Na Na Na,” Soulja Boy’s “Speakers Going Hammer,” Kelly Rowland’s “Rose Colored Glasses,” and many more.

Excited for any of those artists to join The Sims? Who else would you like to hear singing in Simlish?
