The Sims 3 Pop Star Sings in Simlish

It seems like a joke, but The Sims 3‘s made-up language has now been used to cover a real-life pop song. With less than a week to go before The Sims 3 University Life releases on March 5, EA is choosing to promote its game by featuring a 16-year-old girl singing in a made-up language.

The new trailer released today features Blaise Thresher, a British “newcomer” who EA had record a song she wrote, but sing it in Simlish, the gibberish language spoken by sims characters. The game’s developers have even recreated Thresher’s likeness in the game, which can be downloaded through The Sims 3 Exchange.

It’s not clear where Thresher will fit into University Life, if at all. The game does feature several different majors and clubs for college sims, though, so perhaps a glee club has been included.

    No offense but I believe that songs have been covered in Simlish since they launched the Sims 2 years ago. Artists ranging from Kimbra to the Pussycat Dolls to Neon Trees have all rerecorded their song(s) in Simlish to be featured in the game. I know all this because there were many artists that I found out about because I enjoyed their songs in Simlish so much that I actually listened to the original versions (for example- gabriella climi, lily allen, aly & aj [i know you just doubted my credibility but for disney stars they’re quite good],etc.)

    Further more, I distinctly remember the Black Eyed Peas being featured in The Urbz both musically and visually with their own accompanying characters (urbz) way before Katy Perry joined up with the Sims series.

    In case you couldn’t tell, I’m a major fan of the Sims as well as a fan of music so my point in this rant was just to say that this isn’t a new phenomenon but it’s still pretty cool to witness.
