    1. INTRODUCTION

    Hi and Konnichi wa!  Welcome to my FAQ for Dance Dance Revolution for the 
    Playstation 1!  I refer to this as a "FAQ/Walkthrough", but there's very 
    little "walking through" to be done with this game.  Anyone familiar with 
    Konami's most famous member of the BEMANI series will know that there are few 
    written tips that can be given for the Dance Dance Revolution series.  You 
    have to trust your own feet and your burning soul.  However, I will, in this 
    FAQ, give you the heads-up on what the songs are, where they come from, and a 
    few tips to get you ready for tackling them...
    
    This FAQ was made following the release of DDRMAX2 for the Playstation 2.  
    Mention is given if songs appear on future mixes.
    
    ******************************************************************************
    2. FAQ
    ******************************************************************************
    
    Q: What is Dance Dance Revolution?
    
    A: DDR is Konami's first release into the DDR world as it gradually makes 
    its way to American shores.
    
    Q: How does one play Dance Dance Revolution games?
    
    A: It's actually pretty simple.  Your "controller" has four directions: left, 
    down, up, and right, which are shown at the top of your play screen.  You 
    select a song.  As the song plays, arrows will start scrolling up to your top 
    line.  When an arrow scrolling up reaches the line of arrows at the top, you 
    must "step" on the direction matching that arrow's direction.  If two arrows 
    come up at once, you must press both at once.  
    
    Q: Is this like any DDR from the arcades?
    
    A: Not at all.  For licensing reasons, and the fact that the USA has to catch 
    up on songs from missed mixes, we're given a hodgepodge of DDR material in 
    this mix from the early arcade mixes.
    
    Q: Why isn't (insert song here) in this mix or any others?
    
    A: Usually, it's directly related to the fact that, despite Konami's usage 
    of these songs for DDR, the songs are still owned by the songs' artists.  
    This means that the contract the artists have with Konami only refers to the 
    games they specify, which is generally the arcade mix, and (most of the time) 
    the corresponding Japanese Playstation console port.  Getting the songs over 
    here is a whole other story, and I feel that we're lucky to get the songs that 
    we do.
    
    Q: Just who is NAOKI?
    
    A: Naoki Maeda has been with Konami for many years.  He is the leader of 
    Konami AM Internal Sound Team, who are in charge of coming up with songs for 
    each new DDR release.  He's responsible for many songs throughout DDR-dom, 
    under lots of artist names.  He also has the support of other artists and 
    vocalists, such as Paula Terry, Thomas Howard, and Aaron G.  His artist names 
    include, but are not limited to: Omega (the symbol), 1479, 180, 190, 190', 
    200, 270, 290, 8 bit, B3-PROJECT, BIG-O, BLUE DESTROYERS, Crystal Aliens, 
    DANDY MINIERO, d-complex, DJ KAZU, DE-SIRE, DIVAS, DR. VIBE, FACTOR-X, FIXX, 
    KTz, Luv UNLIMITED, mitsu-O!, MR. DOG, MUSTACHE MEN, N&S, N.M.R, NAOKI, NAOKI 
    190, NAOKI underground, NM, NO.9, NW260, RE-VENGE, RevenG, Stone Bros., 
    TailBros, THE FINAL BAND, THE SURRENDERS, UZI-LAY, Z, ZZ.  Some of these are 
    not actually names for Naoki, but sometimes artists he's used for vocals in 
    the songs.
    
    Q: I think a genre you have listed is incorrect.
    
    A: Tell me what you think it should be, but present a good case, because I've 
    asked a lot of people about this subject.  However, if you're disputing a 
    genre that has a star (*) after it, then I won't bother, because those are 
    the official genres as Konami states.

    ---
    
    Select a Game Mode
    
    BEGINNER MODE: Every song in this mode has a 1-foot difficulty.  Also, your 
     characters, instead of doing their own thing in the background, will guide 
     you in how you should step.  This mode is not available on Unison or Double 
     Mode.
    NORMAL MODE: You'll be able to select your songs, and one of three 
     difficulties for playing.
    NONSTOP MODE: This will bring you to a different screen, where you can select 
     a four-song course to dance without stopping.  Check the section later on 
     for more info.
    
    ---
    
    Select a Song
    
    Use Left and Right to switch songs.  Press X or O to make your selection.
    
    Double tap Up or Down to change the difficulty.  There are three available 
    difficulties for every song:
    
    STANDARD (yellow): Very simple steps.  More often than not STD difficulty has 
     just quarter notes.
    DIFFICULT (pink): More complicated steps.  Often, the steps will try to match 
     how the song goes in DIF.
    EXPERT (green): The hardest difficulty.  These are tough ones where they focus 
     on one of two things: matching the notes exactly or kicking up the difficulty 
     to give you pains.
    
    On the bottom of the screen, you'll see the foot rating (general difficulty) 
    of the song.  Each difficulty has a cute little name attached:
    
    1 Foot: Simple
    2 Feet: Moderate
    3 Feet: Ordinary
    4 Feet: Superior
    5 Feet: Marvelous
    6 Feet: Genuine
    7 Feet: Paramount
    8 Feet: Exorbitant
    9 Feet: Catastrophic
    
    Press Start to bring up a little Options window on your side of the screen.  
    Each of the four options are default to OFF:
    
    1st Option: This allows you to select FLAT, which will make all arrows the 
     same color, as opposed to the grading colors used to distinguish beats.
    2nd Option: This allows you to select LITTLE, which will eliminate all non-
     quarter notes in the song, making it really easy.
    3rd Option: This is the "Turn" option.  MIRROR rotates all arrows 180 degrees.  
     LEFT rotates them 90 degrees to the left.  RIGHT in the other direction.  
     SHUFFLE randomizes the steps.
    4th Option: This is the "Appearance" option.  If HIDDEN is on, the arrows 
     will vanish about half-way.  If SUDDEN is on, the arrows will appear about 
     half-way.  If STEALTH is on, you won't see the arrows at all.
    
    If you can't decide on a song, just pick the RANDOM selection to randomly 
    bring up a song on the current difficulty.
    
    ---
    
    Are You Ready?
    
    The main field consists of the arrows and the Step Zone, which is a line of 
    arrows on the screen.  As the song plays, arrows will begin scrolling along 
    the screen.  As the arrows reach the Step Zone, you need to step on those 
    arrows.
    
    On the top of the screen is the Dance Meter.  It starts about half full.  As 
    you step properly, it'll fill more.  If you misstep, your Dance Meter will 
    start emptying.  If it empties completely, game over.
    
    On the bottom of the screen is the difficulty (in case you forgot), and your 
    score as it tallies up.
    
    Also in the middle of the screen, you'll see words pop up as you step:
    
    PERFECT: You stepped precisely on the arrow.  Combo continues, the dance meter 
     increases, and you get the maximum possible score from that step. 
    GREAT: You just about stepped on the arrow.  Combo continues, the dance meter 
     increases, but you don't get the full score for the step.
    GOOD: You're off on the step by a bit.  Combo stops, but the dance meter 
     doesn't change.
    ALMOST: You're off on the step by quite a bit.  Combo stops, and your dance 
     meter decreases.
    BOO: You completely missed the step.  Combo stops, and your dance meter 
     decreases.
    SAVED: A special kind of step for Unison Mode, which I'll explain in that 
     section.
    
    Also marked on the screen is your combo, which is how many PERFECTS and GREATS 
    you have in a row.  The announcer will tell you when you hit 100 combo, 200, 
    etc.
    
    ---
    
    Evaluation
    
    Once you complete the song, you'll see an Evaluation Screen.  You'll receive 
    a letter grade, a tally on how many of each step you got, your maximum combo, 
    and your score.  Your maximum possible score is 10 million.
    
    The letters are AAA, AA, A, B, C, D, and E.
    
    I don't know how the score relates to each letter grade.  I'm sure it's an 
    algorithm relating to Dance Points, like the newest PS2 games, but so far, I 
    don't know the algorithm
    
    E is a failing grade.
    
    D, C, B, and A are progressive grades you get for scores on the song, without 
    having a full combo.
    
    AA and AAA are given for scores with a full combo, AAA being higher than AA, 
    but not requiring all PERFECTs...
    
    ===================================
    3D. Dancing Tips for the Beginner =
    ===================================
    
    KEEP PRACTICING!
    
    So, you've just got into DDR, eh?  Good for you!  You've become a part of a 
    cult sensation that still holds tons of respect in arcades across the country!  
    This game will probably seem quite overwhelming to you at first, especially 
    if you watch people play it and watch them do 9-footers.  Don't sweat it.  
    You CAN be as good as them with the proper practice and effort.
    
    If you really want to get into this, definitely use the Official DDR Pad.  
    There's no PS2 controller to use in the arcades, so learn the pad nice and 
    early.  Most game stores have a few of these tucked away (possibly more, if 
    Konami's hyping this game like they should).  If you're truly a beginner, you 
    may just want to start with a nice cheap pad.  That way, if you find it's not 
    for you, you're not out a huge investment.
    
    So, to begin, use the Lesson Mode the game provides you.  It will walk you 
    through the basics and coach you to be a better dancer.  
    
    Despite the Lesson Mode, here are some tips I can give you as a beginner:
    
    1. Get a good feeling for the beat.  People who have performed with music have 
    an advantage.  People in marching band have a serious advantage.  ~_^  You'll 
    be stepping to the beat in these early stages, so get used to it now.
    
    2. Now that you have the beat, you must "find the arrows".  Yeah, sure.  I 
    know they're right there in front of you, to your sides, and behind you, but 
    can you hit them without looking?  Early on, you'll find that's your biggest 
    problem: taking a step and not landing on the arrow.  If you have to look, 
    look, but that tactic won't last forever, so before a song takes off, take 
    some cursory steps to make sure you're hitting arrows.
    
    3. Keep your center.  Especially on cheap pads with no definition, you'll find 
    yourself often taking leave of the center of the pad as you continue stepping.  
    If there's a break in the song, look down to make sure you're in the center.  
    
    4. Use the balls of your feet.  You may notice, after some days of a lot of 
    playing, that your ankles will start hurting.  That's normal, and it's 
    happened to most everyone I know that DDRs.  This is your feet telling you to 
    not step with your heels, but with the front of the foot.  Get into that 
    habit.
    
    5. Now that you have these basics, and the Lesson Mode (largely) completed, 
    head into Beginner Mode and start tackling songs.  In particular, get used to 
    the speed of the songs, as well as the speeding-up, slowing-down, and stopping 
    some songs do.  When that just gets too easy, take a deep breath and head into 
    the real DDR world with Standard Mode.  Try to keep your songs at three feet or 
    below, but don't be afraid to venture out into the great unknown.
    
    =======================================
    3E. Dancing Tips for the Intermediate =
    =======================================
    
    KEEP PRACTICING!
    
    Well, you're definitely not a n00b anymore (pardon my French).  You're at the 
    point where you wouldn't completely humiliate yourself at the arcades, but 
    you probably won't impress many people there.  In fact, you may just bore them 
    with your simple steps.  It's time to go to the next level.
    
    At this point in your career, it's time to consider a new pad.  For me, this 
    meant going to redoctane.com and ordering their standard soft pad.  This pad 
    has a soft bottom which won't slip or bunch up as much.  It's still not a 
    serious pad, but you could do worse with fifty bucks...
    
    So, first tip is to KNOW THE SONGS.  You don't necessarily need to memorize 
    the steps, but have a basic understanding of the song before you go into it.  
    Even memorize the music itself, the lyrics, etc. so you can whistle along.  
    Know where the tempo changes may occur, where stops are.  Most importantly, 
    know where the songs musical notes occur in the melody, because these will 
    be mostly what you step.
    
    Now that we're heading into dangerous territory, there is one big rule that 
    I have to stress right away:
    
    Remember how in the last part I told you to "find your center"?  Well, you've 
    found it by now, so now it's time to GET OFF IT.  That's a crutch that's 
    let you into the game, but it will hold you back later on.  What you have to 
    learn is to return your feet to the center as rarely as possible, if at all.  
    Move your feet from one arrow to the next, and don't move them unless you have 
    an arrow to go to.  This is probably the hardest thing you'll ever have to 
    learn as a DDR player.  Once you've relinquished your grip on the center, you 
    only stand to improve up to the highest reaches of DDR-dom.
    
    This actually leads to the other major point of going intermediate:
    
    Eighth notes.  Those are those off-colored ones.  You'll have to deal with 
    a lot of them, so learn to love them now.  This is actually a good first step 
    to leaving the center, because you are absolutely required to step three or 
    more arrows in succession, and you'll have no time to return to the center at 
    all.  Use groups of three eighth notes to figure how to properly move between 
    arrows; combinations such as up-left-down, where your right foot goes on up, 
    left foot goes on left, and your right foot is already carrying back towards 
    the down arrow, for example.  Once you get strings of three down, you'll be 
    ready to tackle longer strings, of four, five, seven, even nine if they're 
    not too tangly...
    
    So, for this end, you'll want to go for songs of four to six feet in 
    difficulty, as well as treading into the pink pink waters of Difficult Mode.  
    Just about all songs of this difficulty have at least several eighth notes 
    to give you practice.  Take these opportunities to develop your step 
    combinations for your own style, so you'll be ready to use them when they 
    appear again in harder songs.
    
    Also, it may behoove you to get into Workout Mode or Nonstop Mode and 
    repeatedly hammer some songs, particularly those of a brisk pace.  This is a 
    good first step to building up all-important stamina.

    All right.  You're through messing around, and through getting condescending 
    looks from your peers at the arcade.  It's time to show them what you can 
    really do and kick it up a notch or three.
    
    If you're really serious now, it's once again time for a new pad.  Although 
    7, 8, and even some 9-footers are possible on a soft, flimsy pad, you just 
    won't get the high scores you cherish.  For this, I turned to RedOctane's 
    Ignition 2.0.  It's also a soft pad, but the thick foam insert, soft gripping 
    bottom, and raised step platforms make it a good pad for aspiring champions, 
    all for a paltry 100 clams.
    
    Of course, if you have the money to blow (approximately $200), you may want 
    to take it even further and buy the Cobalt Flux pad, which is a custom-made 
    hard metal pad.  It's VERY resilient, and much like pads you'll see in the 
    arcades.
    
    Anyway, pads aside, it's time to get down to business:
    
    First, you better have mastered the stuff from the previous sections.  I want 
    to be able to yell out a song title and for you to hum it right there so you 
    know what it sounds like.  I don't wanna see your feet touch that center, 
    soldier, or you'll drop and give me fifty.  At this point, you should also 
    have quick enough eye-foot coordination so that matching arrows on the screen 
    with proper steps is second-nature.
    
    Now, for some new tactics:
    
    Chaos.  You'll soon find as you reach the higher levels, that not all arrows 
    are quarter notes and eighth notes.  You'll find sixteenths, twelfths, and 
    thirty-second notes thrown in to mess you up.  Very rarely will they be in 
    random.  Almost always, they'll match up with how the song goes, so you'll 
    at least have that going for you.  So, a thorough knowledge of the songs will 
    allow you to surmount this hurdle with little difficulty.
    
    Gallops.  This is the popular name for a series of steps that has two 
    sixteenth note steps together, then two sixteen notes of dead space, then two 
    note steps together, and so on.  When you step these notes, you'll feel like 
    a horse gallopping, which derives the name.  Oftentimes, these notes will be 
    strung so that the last note in one gallop is the first note of the next 
    gallop.  To properly step these, leave your last-stepping foot in place, so 
    it'll be ready to step the next gallop while your other foot moves to the 
    next note.  This leads to the final tactic.
    
    Axis of Rotation.  Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to have your 
    upper body directly facing the screen at all times.  A very important tactic 
    for the toughest songs is turning your body so that making truly difficult 
    steps becomes easier.  Using alternating feet on long series' of eighth notes 
    is far less taxing than taking two or more eighth notes with one foot.  The 
    best way to start turning your body is with left-down-right eighth note 
    combos.  Left foot on the left arrow, right foot on the down, and turn so that 
    your left foot hits the right arrow.  It'll be very disorienting at first, 
    but the hard songs will really take it out of you if you don't learn.  After 
    learning a basic turn, learn to maintain your body at a 90 degree angle to 
    the screen for extended periods of time, and then taking it further by 
    rotating 180 degrees, or even 270 and 360, if you're brave enough to take 
    your eyes off the screen.
    
    Finally, it's important to be in relatively good shape for this.  You have to 
    have the proper stamina and leg strength to pull off the toughest ones, 
    because rather dexterous and tiring feats will be required of you, so keep 
    pounding at it, do hard songs repeatedly to build up strength, and push 
    yourself harder and harder to go all the way up to the great green Expert 
    Mode.

    Well, here it is, each song in order it's shown in the song list.  There are 
    no secret songs in this game.  What you see is what you got.
    
    ================================
    4A. HAVE YOU NEVER BEEN MELLOW =
    ================================
    
    Artist: THE OLIVIA PROJECT
    Genre: 70's Ballad
    BPM: 126
    
    Difficulty:
        Sgl Dbl
    STD: 1   2
    DIF: 2   3
    EXP: 4   6
    
    Expert Notes: A four-footer on Expert?  Yes, it seems that way.  I'd put this 
    at five, at least, myself.  The first section is circles around the pad in a 
    clockwise direction, with two quarters and three eighths repeating.  After 
    that, it's pretty simple quarters and three-note eighth clusters, except for 
    two spots, just before the chorus starts, there's a thirteen note stream, and 
    just before the end is a nine note stream that circles around the pad.

    Lyrics:
    
    Have you never been happy just to hear your song?
    Have you never let someone else be strong?
    
    There was a day when I just had to tell my point of view
    I was like you
    Now I don't mean to make you frown
    No, I just want you to slow down
    
    Have you never been mellow?
    Have you never tried to find a comfort from inside you?
    Have you never been happy just to hear your song?
    Have you never let someone else be strong?
    
    Have you never been mellow?

    EXP: 6   7
    
    Expert Notes: You'll find mostly three-note streams, and a few seven-note 
    streams in the opening and verse.  When you get to the chorus, it gets a bit 
    nastier, throwing double steps in your streams, as well as long 16+ note 
    streams which work best using crossovers.

    Always deep inside of my mind
    Tell me why (Ay, iyaiyai)
    
    You keep a pocketful of green green dollars
    I love you though it's the time
    You're very hard
    You sound like a young fella
    Take me on the night
    
    Boom boom boom boom
    Shoot you like a bambar
    Boom boom boom boom

    Expert Notes: It starts with a lengthy stream, and then settles, for the 
    entire song, into a sort of psuedo-triplet style.  It's not pure triplets, as 
    the space between the third note in the triplet and the first note of the next 
    one is smaller than the others, but it can be played that way.  The rest of 
    the song is like this, including throwing some doubles in.

    Expert Notes: A tricky seven-footer.  Whenever you hear orchestra bells, 
    you'll be stepping them in a sixteenth note pattern, mostly in clusters of 
    five.  Once the main verse begins, you'll be facing long streams.  They won't 
    require much turning, but they're pretty long.  Whenever the lyrics say 
    "Sweet, sweet" etc., you'll be gallopping, starting on the note.

    The party's jacked, and something was sidelined
    The mics are dead, Maeda takes the rewind, and use them as guidelines
    I hit them, but Maeda breaks too think, within a mix
    Cant think, I break him like a toothpick
    Can't get with the instrumental record's power
    Maeda's hunking me, like ring around a collar
    So don't screw up
    
    Let them move
    Let them move, oh!
    (whoo)
    Let them move
    sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet
    Let them move

    Radical rebel with the need to bomb ya
    Fake MCs and I'll hang them higher
    The mic is my time, to pay the piper

    You and the beat, portrayed as the victim
    Maniac, as the cuts, denounces
    Supreme, with the war and challenges
    Graceful...
    
    Born and raised in Chicago Crook County,
    Mike is the only raised Hell like Damian
    Pushed through your chest, like the creature in Alien
    Pray, like a phantom, on the loose
    Hold still while I get the noose
    I got your brain in my scope
    
    The plans I hold, so dope, you can't cope
    Deadly...
    
    Put your faith in me, and I'll show you

    Your love is my only desire
    Relight my fire
    Cause I need your love
    
    Bring it on down, I'll take it higher
    Feel your body burning with desire
    One step a little closer
    Turn around and take it like you're supposed ta, a roller coasta
    About this time I'll make a suggestion
    get on the dance floor but use discretion
    It's hot, and when I find the spot
    
    Relight my fire
    Your love is my only desire
    Relight my fire

    I think of you; I wonder if you think of me too.
    I'm back to the town that I was born in
    to think of my life and to start it over with you.
    
    Cause you know we've been in a maze of love
    and we are losing control to get away.
    Here I am walking on a hill in this town.
    I gave my childhood that seems like yesterday
    
    If you were here with me
    you could feel the way I do now.
    If you were here with me
    you could see what I am looking for now.

    You got so much of what you like
    You better look at life, cause I've got this for you
    
    Yeah, we want you to savor day, for you to get away
    Now if you don't care about what I say, then you gotta think about the time
    Because it's on your mind, it got your body goin'
    In the motion, as I'm going through this flowing groove, it's funky
    
    Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on doin' it

    Expert Notes: The main thing you'll notice about this song is that it follows 
    the music (on Expert) pretty well.  It's basically short streams that aren't 
    always on the beat.  Probably the toughest portion of this song is right 
    before the second verse, where you'll have to go from a stream into a double 
    step.

    Lyrics:
    
    Sitting in the corner with a coffee cup
    Reading the newspaper, not looking up
    She smiles as she finds something funny there,
    The sunlight shining in her hair
    
    When she leaves you want to follow her anywhere
    Her dress is too tight but you can't let her see you stare
    
    And she's a hot one, a jalepena
    Ooh la Senorita
    You'll never get close enough
    To la Senorita
    
    Hora, sa fuega
    
    You know she has a mind, she has an attitude
    And she likes her space and her solitude
    She'll tease you or please you, if she's feeling good
    Or burn you like you knew she would
    
    When she smiles It's like the sun shining on your face
    Pulling and stretching her leather and lace
    
    And she's a hot one, a jalepena
    Ooh la Senorita
    In Baja, California
    Ooh la Senorita
    Ooh la Senorita
    
    Ole!

    Expert Notes: You'll be facing short streams with some Chaos, mostly.  Once 
    you reach the bridge of the song, you'll match the percussion with your steps, 
    and then get back into the normal groove for the last chorus, until the end, 
    where you'll have to step in time to the synthesizer.  It's a string of 
    quarter-note length triplets, so follow the music with them, and don't go too 
    fast.

    Lyrics:
    
    Sorry, but could I have the music louder?
    
    Yeah drop the bomb! Just drop the bomb!
    
    I'm kinda dizzy, 'cause of my dreams...
    
    Getting sick and tired of the fossil-like system
    Now or never it's the time to resist 'em
    It's easy to blast them all away
    Pull a trigger, push a button, say adios to today
    Don't get me wrong, I'm a pacifist
    The mind can do more than the fist
    Explosives are not what it takes
    (You know, terrorists always make these mistakes)
    
    What we gotta do is build momentum
    If you need the right tools invent 'em
    Ride the wave of time, come feel the rhythm
    The march to the future has begun, get with 'em
    The brain is the generator of almighty power
    Either do it now or your master plan goes sour
    Yeah!  Are you ready to take that fall?
    It's up to you to make that call to drop the bomb!
    
    Yeah drop the bomb! 
    Just drop the bomb! 
    Let me see that bomb!
    
    Just...
    
    Learn from the sunken Mu, Atlantis
    And from the beheaded male-praying mantis
    We've all gotta make room for whats to come
    What we gotta do is build momentum
    If you need the right tools invent 'em
    Ride the wave of time, come feel the rhythm
    The march to the future has begun, get with 'em
    The brain is the generator of almighty power
    Either do it now or your master plan goes sour
    Yeah!  Are you ready to take that fall?
    It's up to you to make that call!
    
    (And if it don't work then make the real thing, wipe it out)
    
    So drop the bomb! 
    Yeah drop the bomb! 
    Just drop the bomb! 
    Let me see that bomb!
    
    That bomb! 
    That bomb! 
    That bomb!

    Expert Notes: This song likes LONG streams, a lot.  Your first is a sixty-two 
    note stream, followed by a shorter stream, ending with following the hard 
    percussion hits.  Following that is a section following the keyboard hits, and 
    then it basically repeats the same thing over again, although the first stream 
    is shorter.  Watch for the closely packed steps that suggest the percussion 
    hits.

    Expert Notes: This is a good one.  Lots of seven-note streams, several of 
    which make you turn to step them.  Every time you get the disco brass, you 
    have special steps: three eighth notes, followed by two sixteenths, and two 
    offbeats to catch back up.  This keeps up for most of the song, and later on 
    they'll throw double steps into the mess.  At the very end, you'll repeatedly 
    do the disco brass, only instead of the three eighths, you'll have five 
    sixteenths, as you exactly match it.

    Oh, I saw you standing on the street
    I wanted to meet you and stop for a while
    You gave me a smile when you said hello
    
    Now everything's so good inside
    Never realized that I didn't hide
    the feeling that came when you felt the same.

    Expert Notes: Well, the first problem is the eighty-step long stream at the 
    very beginning.  Be sure to keep your foot on the arrow you step every other 
    note, and be ready to switch when it does.  After that, you'll follow the 
    rhythm (in the "Kanto steppu" section), and at the end of that section are 
    four gallops that start on the beat.  After that, it's pretty simple, except 
    for a few small streams that have double steps in them.

    Expert Notes: The easier of the two nine-footers, although that's not saying 
    much.  This song will definitely wear you down if you're not used to catas.  
    It has everything a good cata should, though: long streams, sixteenths thrown 
    in, double steps on some of the shorter streams, and chaos.  At the beginning, 
    you'll have to deal with some syncopation, as the first four notes are on the 
    eighth-note beat, the next three are off, and the last two aren't, and that 
    keeps up for several measures.  Once the verse starts, you'll have eighths 
    with groups of three sixteenths regularly thrown in.  You'll get a bit of a 
    respite from sixteenths once you get to the chorus, but those are replaced 
    with doubles-in-streams, and long streams, then back to the second verse for 
    more sixteenths, and then back to the chorus for more long streams and 
    doubles.  Good luck to you.

    Move your feet
    On concrete

    You want more
    Then I'll give you more
    If it's too hardcore
    Let me know
    I'll stop the show
    Then bring it back
    To be exact
    At 12 o'clock
    Rock the spot
    It's too damn hot
    They told me so
    Dynamite rave
    It's on the down low
    Use your inner glow
    To make a move
    Show and prove

    On the radio
    Here me blow

    Expert Notes: A tough nine-footer.  The toughest nine-footer in this mix, 
    anyway.  The big problem is at the first "Hey, vibe" part, where you have a 
    long stream of changing alternating steps, and then a series of "left, up, 
    right, left, down, right", using turns you've become used to, only these are 
    all in the same stream.  Be sure to use alternating feet for that and practice 
    those steps.  After that, it's actually relatively smooth sailing.  Once you 
    get to the second half, you'll run into a recurring stream that keeps one foot 
    on the up arrow, and at the end, the percussion hits are all double steps.

    Song Type: Konami Original
    First Appearance: DDR 3rd Mix (Arcade)
    American Appearances: DDRMAX2 USA
    Artist Notes: The first track by Naoki under his RE-VENGE moniker, which is 
     dedicated to producing tunes from song styles all over the world.
    Misc. Notes: A remix of this, AFRONOVA PRIMEVAL, appears in DDR Konamix, DDR 
     Ultramix (Song Pack 2), and DDR Extreme 2.  There's also a "FROM NONSTOP 
     MEGAMIX" version of this song in DDR Extreme 2.

    EXP: 8   8
    
    Expert Notes: One thing that seems to be common with the TRIP MACHINES is that 
    they follow the rhythm of the song pretty well.  Of course, the song has 
    some pretty weird rhythms.  Still, expect nothing more complicated than short 
    to medium length streams that require you to turn, and a few double steps 
    put in the streams.

    Expert Notes: Like the first TRIP MACHINE, the steps tend to follow the song, 
    with mostly just streams that require turning, and some that start on the 
    offbeat.  It's not super hard, but there are a lot of them.

    Expert Notes: Like the TRIP MACHINES, the PARANOiAs tend to follow the music 
    closely.  Also, you'll find much of the same stepwise.  Short streams, turns, 
    wacky rhythms, but nothing truly chaotic, only faster than the TRIP MACHINES.  
    The original also has some repeated taps on the same arrow during a stream 
    that are designed to wear your feet out at that speed.  These show up near the 
    end, so watch out.

    Artist Notes: 180 is a Naoki psuedonym, which obviously denotes the BPM, 
     something Naoki likes to do with his PARANOiA mixes...
    Misc. Notes: In addition to those in this game, we also have:

     - PARANOiA Rebirth on DDR Konamix and DDR Ultramix

    Expert Notes: At first, this seems much like the original, only a bit faster, 
    having slightly longer streams, and more double steps.  This all holds until 
    you get to the end, where you have a sixty-one note long stream, before going 
    for the last stretch to the end.

    ******************************************************************************
    5. NONSTOP MODE
    ******************************************************************************
    
    The basic gist of Nonstop Mode is that you select a course of four songs.  
    Each song in the course has a specified difficulty.  Each course has two 
    difficulties: "Level 1", which will involve songs with Standard and 
    Difficult difficulty, and "Level 2", which will boost Standard songs to 
    Difficult, and Difficult songs to Expert.
    
    The courses are played just like normal songs, only you'll immediately jump 
    to the next song after completing one.  The only major difference is that as 
    you get further in the course, you'll get penalized more severely in your 
    Dance Meter if you miss, and it'll take longer to fill back up. 
    
    As for scoring, the first song's max is 10 million, the second is 20 million, 
    and so on up, making the max for each Nonstop Course 100 million.
    
    (Note: The #'s listed are for Single Play.  Double Play has all the same 
    difficulties, but not necessarily the same # of feet.)

    ******************************************************************************
    6. OTHER MODES
    ******************************************************************************
    =================
    6A. Unison Mode =
    =================
    
    This is a special shortlived mode.  In the USA, it only appears on this mix 
    (with something like it in Konamix).  To access it, press O on Game Mode on 
    the main menu, then select it from the Game Style menu.
    
    This mode requires two players.
    
    Here's how it goes down.  Instead of the usual arrows, you have arrows of 
    three different colors, yellow, blue, and red.
    
    Yellow arrows need to be stepped on by both players.
    Blue arrows only need to be stepped on by the first player.
    Red arrows only need to be stepped on by the second player.
    
    So, you'll select your song as normal (all difficulties are the same as they 
    would be for Single/Versus).  When you start, your two Step Zones will merge 
    into one Zone, and all three different colors of arrows will scroll up to 
    that one Step Zone.  Generally, the song starts with yellow arrows, then 
    alternates between blue and red.  Then, they'll throw blue and red at the 
    same time (watch carefully, here).  Then, they may get really evil, and throw 
    blue, red, and yellow all at the same time.  Even the most respectable 
    players can find themselves confused by the colors.
    
    One more thing: This is finally where the SAVED rank for stepping is used 
    (as you may have seen in the Evaulation screen).  Both players have the 
    option of stepping on the red or blue arrows, if they have time, and both 
    will get credit and combo extenstion for stepping.  However, if a player 
    misses their own red/blue colored arrow, they'll get a SAVED if their partner 
    steps on that arrow for them.  This only works for red/blue, not yellow.  If 
    you're SAVED, your combo won't stop, and your Dance Meter won't drop, either.
    
    ==================
    6B. Workout Mode =
    ==================
    
    This mode allows you to observe the calories melting away as you dance.
    
    ---
    
    Workout Setting
    
    Weight: Set this and the amount of calories burned will be slightly changed 
     to reflect your weight.
    
    Menu: Set to "Play Time" to play a specific amount of time.  Set to "Calories 
     Burned" and you'll play until you reach that number of calories.  "No 
     Setting" will let you have no restrictions.
    
    Goal: Set to minutes if "Play Time" is on Menu, and to a calorie amount if 
     "Calories Burned" is on Menu.
    
    ---
    
    Select Character
    
    The character you pick here reflects the difficulty of the song.  Picking 
    Charmy turns it down to almost Beginner.  Picking Emi will turn it down to 
    about equivalent to turning on the Little option.  Picking Jenny will give you 
    the normal setup.
    
    ---
    
    Select a Game Mode
    
    NORMAL: Select this and you can pick and choose your songs.
    
    PROGRAM1: Select this, and you can choose a starting song, after which, you'll 
     go to the next song (like a Nonstop) in song list order.  The song list is 
     truncated so as not to include songs above 136 BPM, which means nothing 
     faster than DUB-I-DUB.
    
    PROGRAM2: Select this, and you can choose a starting song, after which, you'll 
     go to the next song (like a Nonstop) in song list order.  The entire song 
     list is game for this one.
    
    ---
    
    Workout Results
    
    After every song (or at the end of your program), you'll see a Workout Results 
    screen where you can see your calorie-related results.
    
    =================
    6C. Lesson Mode =
    =================
    
    Select this to learn basic lessons about DDR.  The CPU will perform for you, 
    and you'll have to match what it's doing.  You'll have an onscreen character 
    to guide you, as well.  Lesson 1 is largely basic steps.  Lesson 2 will throw 
    in some different kinds of movements.  Lesson 3 will throw eighth notes into 
    the mix as well as some fancy moves.
    
    ===================
    6D. Training Mode =
    ===================
    
    Select this to pick songs and tackle them on your own terms.  You may select 
    the song, the mode (Single, Unison, Versus, Double), its difficulty, and any 
    song options you want (as detailed in the How To Dance section far above).
    
    In addition (unlike other modes of gameplay), you can set Assist, which 
    allows you to play with any combination of the music, a metronome (which 
    marks standard quarter note beats), and a handclap (which claps whenever 
    there's an arrow).
    
    Also, you can set the song's speed.  Unlike the song option called Speed, 
    this actually changes how fast the song goes.  It's good for taking fast 
    songs at speeds you can manage.
    
    Finally, you can set what measure the song begins and ends.  The "Start" 
    function below it will allow you to quickly change between the measures you 
    select and the whole song.

    If you wish to e-mail me, be sure to follow these guidelines...
    
    - Make ABSOLUTELY sure I haven't already answered your question in the guide.
    - Make sure it has something to do with DDR.  I don't want spam, chain 
    letters, offers for friendship.  Don't bother me with info on other DDR games, 
    really.  I keep my ear pretty close to the ground about such things, and I'll 
    probably know about it before you.  Compliment me on the FAQ all you want, 
    though...
    - Make sure you say "DDR" at one point in your e-mail.  I have more than one 
    FAQ, and I can't always figure the question out without specifying what game 
    you're asking about.
    - Asking how to beat a song will result in a deletion.  There really are no 
    tips to offer for DDR'ing besides what I have in my section.  It has to come 
    from your own skill and desire to pass.
    - Spell correctly and use proper grammar, please.  If I can't understand 
    your e-mail, it'll go to the junk pile...
