What's a fast way to choose which new songs to download for Rock Band?

My sister and I are big fans of the Rock Band video game on XBox. They seem to be winding up the franchise though and we want to download a whack of new songs while we still can. We've already downloaded songs we know and love already. The dilemma is what to get next. It would take forever to go through the list and listen to each song. Is there a better way of narrowing down the choices? Is there some rating system we could consult online that could tell us which songs are at least more popular than others? Our musical interests are all over the place which makes things tougher. We like Creedence Clearwater, Pearl Jam, Sting, The Who, Bob Dylan, Queen... but as you can see these are older bands. We don't know much about the newer bands but we've liked Dover, Amy Winehouse, Stone Temple Pilots....

How do guitar learners stay motivated and start "knowing" the fretboard?

I'm thinking about getting back to playing guitar after a decade. I never got past the basics the first time around, so I've always wondered about two things: how do experienced guitar players fundamentally see and "know" their instrument (especially where everything is on the fretboard), and what motivated them to keep practicing when they were newbies?

Will PS3 Singstar Mics work with the PS3 versions of the Rockband games & Guitar Hero: WT?

Calling my fellow PS3 owners! Do the PS3 Singstar microphones work with the PS3 versions of Guitar Hero: World Tour and the Rockband games? I have done some Google searching which has turned up responses ranging from "yes" to "no" to "maybe"... I'm hoping AskMe can turn up something a little more definitive.
