Get Music is one of the main menus in Lips. In this section, players are able to buy music as downloadable content or import songs from an external media player to be sung in the main Sing menu. In Number One Hits, Get Music is integrated into the latter menu instead.
Song Import Edit
- Main article: Freestyle
In the first edition of Lips, players can use the Get Music menu to import DRM free songs from their media players. If you have a hard drive, the total number of songs that can appear in Lips is 5,000. Otherwise, the limit on the Get Music screen is 2,000. When 2,000 songs or more are available on your player, the list shows the songs as indexed on the selected player. In most cases, this is the alphabetically. The game can only work with one personal music player at a time.
In Number One Hits and later installments, this limit was lifted in the new Freestyle mode.
