1. INTRODUCTION
******************************************************************************

Hello, and welcome to my FAQ/Walkthrough for DDR Hottest Party, part of the 
famous Dance Dance Revolution series, for the Nintendo Wii!  In this FAQ, 
you'll information on all the songs, as well as the means to get through the 
Groove Circuit Mode and what comes of it.  Of course, DDR is a type of game 
that relies heavily on one's own ability, so there's only so much help I can 
provide.  I will try to give heads-ups on what to expect, though.

******************************************************************************
2. FAQ
******************************************************************************

Q: What is Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party?

A: DDR Hottest Party is Konami's introduction of the Dance Dance Revolution 
 series to the Nintendo Wii, fully utilizing its unique controls to their 
 greatest effect.

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.  If a green "freeze" arrow 
 appears, you must hold that step at the beginning until the freeze arrow ends.

Q: Okay, that's the basics.  Now, how do I use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk?

A: During play, if you have Hand Markers turned on, you'll see orange markers 
 on the left and right arrows.  For those, you need to shake the proper control 
 given its side: the Remote for the right, and the Nunchuk for the left.

Q: Do I have to play with the Hand Markers or the Gimmicks?

A: No.  Go to OPTIONS on the Music List and you can turn those off for any 
 of the players.

Q: How many songs in this mix?

A: There are 50 songs in this mix.  26 are open by default, and the other 24 
 you unlock through Groove Circuit Mode, or by play time.

Q: Are there any repeats from old mixes in this game?

A: The entire game is brand new.  This means that there aren't any repeats 
 from arcade or console mixes, from America, Europe, or Japan.  That said, 
 there are some REMIXES of certain classic DDR tunes you may recognize.

Q: How do I unlock new songs?

A: The main means of unlocking songs is through Groove Circuit Mode.  Whenever 
 you complete a venue's "Request" or "Battle", you'll be given the songs you 
 played in those sections.

Q: Is this like any arcade mix?

A: No, this game was designed from the ground up to be entirely new and 
 unique to the Nintendo Wii.  Different announcer, different characters, 
 and different background animations.  There are some things that have been 
 preserved, such as the basic song wheel, the "rating" for each difficulty, 
 and other basic things.

Q: Can I change the arrow speed?  Sudden?  Hidden?  Reverse?  Dark?

A: Nope.  Apart from Freeze Arrows and Jumps, you can't switch anything else 
 around in this mix.

Q: Is there any Nonstop Mode?  Challenge Mode?  Endless Mode?  Doubles Mode?  
 Lesson Mode?  Training Mode?

A: 'Fraid not.  Workout Mode has Courses, and the main game has the Battle 
 Mode, but other than that, none of the truly challenging modes made it in.

Q: 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.  His styles run several levels, but seem to 
 have distilled recently down to euro beat and euro trance.  His artist names 
 include: Omega (the symbol), 100-200-400, 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, DE-STRAD, DIVAS, DR. VIBE, FACTOR-X, 
 FIXX, KTz, Luv UNLIMITED, mitsu-O!, MR. DOG, MUSTACHE MEN, N&S, N.M.R, NM, 
 NO.9, NW260, RE-VENGE, RevenG, Stone Bros., TailBros, THE FINAL BAND, THE 
 SURRENDERS, UZI-LAY, Z, ZZ.

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.

3C. How to Dance =
==================

Selecting Free Play Mode will put you in the standard DDR setup.

---

Select Number of Players

You need to first tell the game how many people are playing.  It can figure 
out how many connections you have, so make sure all connections are live 
before selecting.

---

Select Your Style

Single Mode: This is a 1-player mode using the pad you used to start the game.  
Multi Mode: This is a 2-4 player mode where each player uses a pad.
Battle Mode: This is a 1-2 player mode where two dancers go head to head to 
 see who can get the best score.
Friendship Mode: This is a 2-4 player mode similar to Multi Mode, except 
 everyone steps to one stepchart.  Whoever gets the BEST judgment for each 
 step is what's counted.
Sync Mode: This is a 2-4 player mode similar to Multi Mode, except 
 everyone steps to one stepchart.  Whoever gets the WORST judgment for each 
 step is what's counted.

---

Select Character

From this screen, you can select which dancer you want to play as.  Pick 
with either the Pointer or the Control Pad.  Press + or - to switch the 
character's outfit.

---

Select Music

Use Left and Right to switch songs.  Tap Up or Down to change the difficulty.  
Press A to select.  Alternatively, you can use the arrows on the menu itself.  
Point to them using the Wii Remote to scroll, then select with A.

Press + to sort.  Changing the sorting will change it from the default "by 
color" setup to an alphabetical list where you can pick the letter, to by BPM 
from slowest to fastest, to by step difficulty, based on the current difficulty 
you have selected, and your "favorites", which is measured by the total score 
from all your plays of the song divided by the number of the difficulty each 
time you played.

Difficulties: 

Beginner (BEG): Almost all songs are 1-footers.  Don't play this for too long 
 if you wish to get better.
Basic (BAS): Most songs range from 2 to 5 feet.  This is pretty simple if 
 you're getting used to DDR.
Difficult (DIF): Most songs range from 4 to 7 feet.  Largely, you'll find that 
 steps reflect how the music goes, as opposed to just being on the beat.
Expert (EXP): Most songs range from 6 to 10 feet.  These are the tough ones 
 where they focus on two things: matching the song's notes exactly, and/or 
 kicking up the difficulty to give you pains.

Below the song graphic, you'll see the BPM for the song, which may be dynamic.

If you can't figure out what song you want, you can select RANDOM.  This will 
automatically pick a random song at the current difficulty.  You will not be 
able to adjust anything once you hit the RANDOM button.

Select DANCE STAGE to pick which stage you wish to play on.  Default is Random.

Select OPTIONS to bring up the options listed below:

Hand Markers: You can turn these on or off for each player.  Hand Markers 
 simply replace other arrows, anyway.
Freeze Arrow: You can turn these on or off for each player.
Gimmicks: You can turn these on or off globally.

---

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.  If you see a green Freeze Arrow, you need to step on that arrow and 
hold it until the Freeze Arrow ends (you don't need to remove your foot when 
it ends, just stay on it until it ends, and move your foot at your leisure).

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:

MARVELOUS (if turned on): You stepped precisely on the arrow.  Combo continues, 
 the dance meter increases, and you get the maximum possible score from that 
 step.
PERFECT: You stepped more or less 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, and you get half the maximum possible score for the step.
GOOD: You're off on the step by a bit.  Combo stops, but the dance meter 
 doesn't change.  You get no points.
ALMOST: You're off on the step by quite a bit.  Combo stops, and your dance 
 meter decreases.  You get no points.
BOO: You completely missed the step.  Combo stops, and your dance meter 
 decreases.  You get no points.

OK!: You stepped on the whole Freeze Arrow.  You get the normal maximum score 
 for a step.
NG: You stepped off the Freeze Arrow before it ended. Combo continues, but 
 your Dance Meter will decrease.  You get no points.

Also marked on the screen is your combo, which is how many MARVELOUS, 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 numerical score is based on a function of your steps and combo.  I don't 
know the exact algorithm yet, though.

Your letter grade is based strictly off your steps.  I don't know the 
algorithm at the moment, but I imagine it's based on the older MAX2/Extreme 
style, where a PERFECT and OK counts for two dance points, a GREAT for one, 
and the rest for nothing.  I have no proof of this, though.

The grades are AAA, AA, A, B, C, D, and E.  The highest grades are for the 
best stepping, and E is for a failed song.

Your numerical score is a maximum of 50 million plus 5 million times the 
difficulty of the song.  So, a song with a difficulty of 1 would have 55 
million as a max score, while a 10 will have a max of 100 million.

======================
3D. Using Your Hands =
======================

New to this game is the concept of Hand Markers.  Well, to be honest, since 
DDR Extreme (US PS2), there has been the concept of using the EyeToy for 
hand markers, but this is an improved variation on that that doesn't require 
a camera.

So, as you step, you'll see orange diamonds scroll up the left and right 
sides.  These mean that you need to shake the Remote (right) or Nunchuk (left) 
to hit them.  Also, there are Freezes for Hand Markers, too, so you pretty 
much just need to keep the hand moving while it goes, but you don't need to 
go crazy with the shaking.

Now, this concept is slightly difficult because of the concept of timing, as 
in "when" exactly does one shake the Remote, and how can you get it precise 
enough? 

The best way I found is to hold each part upright, with your thumb and index 
finger firmly on the part, but the other three fingers holding it loosely.  
When the marker comes up, "drop" the Remote/Nunchuk by turning your hand 
inward, releasing it with your bottom three fingers, but still holding on with 
your thumb and index, and ending palm downward, then bringing it back up.  
The timing should be that you hit the bottom of your "drop" right at the 
marker.  Sounds complicated, doesn't it?  Well, that's just one method.  Some 
people like using the Remote/Nunchuk as maracas in that manner.

Regardless, if this is all too complicated for you, you're certainly able to 
turn the markers off in the Options.  Unfortunately, you have to do so every 
time you fire up the game.

==============
3E. Gimmicks =
==============

Gimmicks are arrows that are not standard.  There are several different kinds, 
and each acts differently.  Some will appear on any game where you have them 
turned on, and some will only appear during Battles.  Here's a list of the 
Gimmicks you'll face:

Screen Stomper: This arrow with a spherical bracket needs to be stepped on 
 so you keep the "Screen Block" away, basically a large sphere that obscures 
 your lower vision.

Double Stomp: This arrow needs to be stepped on twice; once again one beat 
 after the last step.

Foot Destructor: This spiky thing will hurt your Dance Meter if you step 
 on it.  However, if your foot is already on the direction when it comes up, 
 it thankfully will not go off.

Foot Confuser: These red-sphered arrows rotate and don't fall into the step-
 chart as normal, but they're just like any other arrow.

Foot Missile/Hand Missile: These blocky objects need to be hit to send to the 
 other side, where they will enter your opponent's chart.  They're probably 
 the most annoying gimmicks, as you need to watch where they land and all.

===================================
3F. 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.

So, to begin, use the Tutorial the game provides you.  It will walk you 
through the basics and coach you to be a better dancer.  

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, 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 Basic 
Mode.  Try to keep your songs at three feet or below, but don't be afraid to 
venture out into the great unknown.

=======================================
3G. 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.

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 and repeatedly hammer some 
songs, particularly those of a brisk pace.  This is a good first step to 
building up all-important stamina.

===================================
3H. Dancing Tips for the Advanced =
===================================

KEEP PRACTICING!

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.

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.

Taps.  This is the name I like to give eighth notes all on the same arrow.  
These are always a pain, because you have to train your foot to tap rapidly on 
the same arrow for a possibly long time, and it can really wear you out.  
There's no easy way to get around this, you just have to learn it as you go.

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 or "crossovers".  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.

And lastly, never tackle 10-footers without a good insurance plan backing 
you up. ^_^

Lyrics:

Ladies and gentlemen (Ladies and gentlemen)
The princess is here
Ciara! 
This beat is

Automatic supersonic hypnotic funky fresh
Work my body so melodic
This beat flows right through my chest
Everybody ma and pappi came to party
Grab somebody, work your body, work your body
Let me see you 1, 2 step

Rock it, don't stop it
Everybody get on the floor
Wake the party up
We about to get it on

(Let me see ya'll)
1, 2 step
(I love it when ya'll)
1, 2 step

1, 2 step
We about to get it on
This beat is

It don't matter to me
We can dance slow
Whichever way the beats drop
Our bodies will go
So swing it over here
Mr. DJ

I shake it like jello
And make the boys say hello
Cause they know I'm rockin' the beat
I know you heard about a lot of great MC's
But they ain't got nothing on me
Because I'm 5 foot 2
I wanna dance with you
And I'm sophisticated fun
I eat filet mignon
And I'm nice and young
Best believe im number one

Rock it, don't stop it
Everybody get on the floor
Wake the party up
We about to get it on

(Let me see ya'll)
1, 2 step
(I love it when ya'll)
1, 2 step

Lyrics:

As 99 red balloons go by
As 99 red balloons go by
As 99 red balloons go by
As 99 red balloons go by

99 red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here
From somewhere else
The war machine springs in to life
Opens up one eagle eye
Focusing it on the sky
Where 99 red balloons go by

99 knights of the airway
Ride super-high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a superhero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk
With orders to identify
To clarify and classify
Scramble in the summer sky
As 99 red balloons go by

As 99 red balloons go by
As 99 red balloons go by

Rest in peace girl, your death is such a shame
The paper said a bullet got in your way
But, I smell foul play, possible poisoning
I had to bring you in for questioning
I went to your grave, dug up your body
Brought it to my house, where you lay

So letís play doctor, babe, we'll operate today
Incisions must be made
You could help solve this case

So letís play doctor, babe, we'll operate today
Incisions must be made
You could help solve this case for me

For me

Iíll catch the murderer and send him away.
Iíll get the evidence from your last day.

I'll do what I got to do

So, baby call on me
Whether day or night
I'll never leave

You don't have to be alone
I'll come anywhere you want
Baby, just pick up the phone and call on me
See you and I
I wanna be your only love affair
See there it go

Gettin' my way for years

Without a care
Until I met this girl who turned the tables around
She caught me by surprise
I never thought I'd be the one breaking down
I can't figure it out why

I'm so
Caught up
Got me feelin' it
Caught up
I don't know what it is
But, it seems she's got me twisted

The one who showed me true love or at least it seems
With brown coco skin and curly black hair
It's just the way he looks at me, that gentle lovin' stare

Finally you come along
The way I feel about ya it just can't be wrong
If you only knew the way I feel about you
I just can't describe it, oh no no

Lyrics:

Wake up in the morning with a head like 'what ya done?'
This used to be the life, but I donít need another one
Good luck cuttin' nothin', carrying on, you wear them gowns
So how come I feel so lonely when you're up getting down? 

So, I play along when I hear that favorite song 
I'm gonna be the one who gets it right
You better know when you're swingin' 'round the room 
Looks like magic's solely yours tonight 

But, I donít feel like dancin'
When the old Joanna plays 
My heart could take a chance 
But my two feet can't find a way 
You think that I could muster up a little soft-shoe devil sway 
But I don't feel like dancin' 
No sir, no dancin' today 

Don't feel like dancin', dancin' 
Even if I find nothin' better to do 
Don't feel like dancin', dancin' 
Why'd you break it down when Iím not in the mood? 
Don't feel like dancin', dancin' 
Rather be home with no one when I can't get down with you 

Don't feel like dancin', dancin' 
Even if I find nothin' better to do 
Don't feel like dancin', dancin' 
Why'd you break it down when Iím not in the mood? 
Don't feel like dancin', dancin' 
Rather be home with no one when I can't get down with you

I guess we never really moved on

Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful

Lyrics:

Drums, please!

Summer, summer, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind

Here it is, the groove, slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin' to break the monotony
Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
A little bit out of control, it's cool to dance
But what about the groove that soothes, that moves romance
Give me a soft subtle mix
And if ain't broke then don't try to fix it
And think of the summers of the past
Adjust the base and let the alpine blast
Pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme
And put your car on cruise and lay back cause this is summertime

Summer, summer, summertime, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind

Summer, summer, summertime, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind

School is out and it's a sort of a buzz
And back then I didn't really know what it was
But now I see what we have of this
The way that people respond to summer madness
The weather is hot and girls are dressing less
And checking out the fellas to tell 'em who's best
Riding around in your jeep or your benzos
Or in your Nissan sitting on lorenzos

Summer, summer, summertime, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind

Summer, summer, summertime, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind (time to sit back and unwind)

Play Notes: This song starts at 83, then doubles at the chorus, then slows

Expert Notes: There are basically two styles to this song, the slow style and 
 the fast style.  The slow style has lots of sixteenths squashed into the 
 steps, which isn't too bad for speed, but bad for reading.  The fast part is 
 more just straight streams.

You take my hand
And you say you've changed
But, boy you know your begging don't fool me
Because to you it's just a game

So let me on down
'Cause time has made me strong
I'm starting to move on
I'm gonna say this now
Your chance has come and gone
And you know

It's just too little, too late
A little too long
And I can't wait
But, you know all the right things to say 

I can love with all of my heart, baby
I know I have so much to give (I have so much to give)
With a player like you, I don't have a prayer
That's no way to live
Ohhhh... 

Mmm nooo

I can take from you
You don't do the things you use to do
You don't even say, "I love you, too"
And lately I've been feeling
Feeling unappreciated

Woke up this morning and saw your face
And you didn't look the same as yesterday
I got the feeling that you can't seem to see
Where you want to be
And lately it ain't been the same at all
When you're here it's like I'm invisible
I still can't seem to see where I went wrong
'Cause I'm feeling

I'm feeling really unappreciated
Your takin' my love for granted, babe
And I don't know how much more
I can take from you
You don't do the things you use to do
You don't even say, "I love you, too"
And lately I've been feeling
Feeling unappreciated

Lyrics:

Whoa whoa
Do do do do do
Yeah
Yeah

Yo
Tell me fellas have you seen her? (seen her)
It was about five minutes ago
When I seen the hottest chick
That a young'n
Never seen before

I said Yo
Tell her girls I want to meet her (meet her)
On second thought that ain't the way to go
I got to give her game proper
Spit it so she'll get it
There she is I got to stop her

Or should I talk about her smile? (it's been said before)
Or what about her style? (too obvious)
I'm out of time
She's out the door
I got to go for mine

I think I'll say

Yo
I don't know your name, but excuse me miss
I saw you from across the room

And I got to admit that you got my attention
You're making me want to say, yo

I know you're trying to leave, but excuse me miss
I saved the last dance for you
How I'd love to keep you here with me, oh baby

Now everybody just clap your hands like this (like this)
Just clap your hands like this (whooo, like this)

And if your shorty is in the house tonight
Just grab her by the hand, homie
Make her understand y'all was made to dance like this (like this)

Y'all was made to bounce like this (whoa, like this)

Just let her know she was made for you
And you want to do everything she want to, man

 complicated, and they will sometimes throw jumps into the mix.  There are a 
 few off-beat steps to follow the rhythm, but they are few.

Lyrics:

I can't stop these feelings
When you're holding me tight
And I know this is heaven
When you open my mind to beauty inside

This power over me
I'm drifting into a dream
So cast your spell
And I'll follow you into the light

So hold me now
And take me to heaven
And show me how
This dream lasts forever
I feel it now
I'm falling in deep to the beauty inside
Just shine your light

You're beautiful inside

Lyrics:

Now I'm near to the end of this ride
feels so good and everything's all right
I've escaped, left it all behind out behind
And I can't wait to see tomorrow

We'll ride around with the wind in my hair
I'm so free, I can go anywhere
No more work, no more playing to rules
I'll please myself, look out, watch me go

There's only one simple thing that I'm gonna do
I wanna see it come crashing through
I feel so strong, deep inside and I'll get right
So, just believe and tomorrow will come soon

Break out, listen louder, love music
Crank up the tension, ride the wind
Don't stop me now, I'm moving faster, forget the anger

I don't have time to waste with you
It's just so boring what you do
So don't look back, keep moving, I'm breaking out

Let's go, like an explosion, I'll get there
I'm Supergirl, I just don't care
Don't stop me now, I'm moving faster, forget the anger

I don't have time to waste with you
It's just so foreign what you do
So don't look back, keep moving, I'm breaking out

Break out!

Lyrics:

Sweet lover... yeah yeah yeah...
Doo-doo-doodoo doo doo doodoo doo
La la la, forever

Dream, let your heart and mind go free
And maybe we'll discover the things that we've never seen before
Love song!
This melody will linger on
And these words of beauty
I'll sing tenderly once more

Every day and everywhere, stay with me, together we'll be
Let's fall in love, this melody is such, I'll always sing to you
Every day and every time, a love so sweet
Forever we'll sing this harmony, a melody so right
I'll always keep it in my heart

La la lala

Expert Notes: The first half is mostly streams with a bit of chaos thrown in 
 for good measure.  Once you hit the second half, you'll be hitting harder 
 steps that try to follow the rhythm, and that includes gallops, then more of 
 the same with freeze arrows.

Lyrics:

Be together can we
Be together can we
Be together again

Why don't we
Be together can we
Be together can we
Be together now

Baby I feel you
I feel that you need me, too
No matter how or what you do
I used to be the one
Who always gets a little bit scared
To let it out, let it show
Let all my feelings go on

And now I'm wanting you, needing you, longing for you
Wanting you, needing, confessing to you
Spending my lonely nights
Is something I can't take anymore

And now I'm wanting you, needing you, longing for you
Wanting you, needing, confessing to you
Lonely nights are not mine anymore

And now I'm wanting you, needing you, longing for you
Wanting you, needing, confessing to you

And now I'm wanting you, needing you, longing for you
Wanting you, needing, confessing to you
Spending my lonely nights
Is something I can't take anymore

And now I'm wanting you, needing you, longing for you
Wanting you, needing, confessing to you
Lonely nights are not mine anymore

Lyrics:

Every day I think about the way
The world turns round and round
And all the pretty stars

So bright in every way
I think about the dreams I hold in my heart
Isn't it so lovely to be

In this world
Heavens and the earth
There's a twinkling from afar
A message from the stars

I will never regret
All the times I had spent
Holding you close to my heart

'Cause you will always be in my dreams
And in the stars, yes it seems to me
I believe in a love
That shines and never goes away
It smiles and wants to stay
Like stars that keep on shining at night

The light, like messages of love
It always shines above
It comes and go sometimes
But never disappears

It shines and then repeats
A message of love
Once again, forever it lives
In the stars

Lyrics:

Today you let me down
You never came around
My heart just hit the ground
I'm torn in two

Tonight I'll dream once more
You'll walk in through that door
And kiss me like before
That's what you can do

In this fantasy you are here
But the truth is you're nowhere near

Ohh, here I go again
Tell me will it never end
Maybe, one day you can make it all come true

Instead of always in between
Safely locked inside this dream
I will open up and give my heart to you

And then I'll never say
It's happening again

And here I go again
If we could sieze the day
Just say the word and then
I don't have to pretend

Here I go again
Yeah
Here I go again

Only yesterday
We walked hand in hand
But, now that's gone away
And I don't understand
You seem so upset
But I just can't see wahy
Was such a little thing
So let me put it right

Hold tight
I know I've been a fool again
But I don't want to say goodbye
Let's try
And maybe work it out again
Just give me a chance this time

Lyrics:

I'm flying away
Oh yes, I'm trying to find
Another reason to stay
Another reason that will make me feel alive

I hope someday
I climb higher and I pray
And that love is waiting for me
On the highest hill
Telling me everything will be the way that I had believed
This compass in my heart

Yes, I had a dream late last night
There was a shooting star so bright
It never disappeared and kept on drifting higher

Fly... fly away, fly away, fly away, fly away, fly away
Into the future
Fly away, fly away, fly away, fly away, fly away
Into the distant future
Try

Yes, I had a dream late last night
There was a shooting star so bright
It never disappeared and kept on drifting higher

No, I never thought I could fly
You never know until you try
I never thought that I could capture a shooting star
Catch a shooting star

Lyrics:

In this game, use your feet and dance to the beat
Step on the arrows and follow the rhythm
Don't match the timing with your eyes, feel the rhythm with your soul

C'mon, let me hear you say "Right!"
"Left!"
"Up, up!"
"Down, down!"
"Up, up, up!"
I wanna hear you say "Down!"

Oh yeah!  Oh yeah!  
Matching the timing with your eyes isn't gonna give you a cool score
So, don't match the timing with your eyes, feel the rhythm with your soul

Now place your feet on the left and right arrows
Don't return your feet to the center
Just keep standing there!

C'mon, let me hear you say "Right!"
"Left!"
"Right!  Left!"
"Left!  Right!"
"Right!  Left!  Left!"
"Left!  Right!  Right!"
I wanna hear you say, "Right!  Left!  Right!  Left!  Right!  Right!  Left!"
"Left!  Right!  Left!  Right!  Left!  Left!  Right!"

Remember, place your feet on the left and right arrows
Don't return your feet to the center

"Right!  Right!  Left!  Left!  Right!  Left!  Right!"

"Jump!  Jump!  Jump!"

Lyrics:

What do you see in the blink of an eye
What can you find when your heart can decide
Not knowing how to describe what's inside
Oh, show what you got, let it out as you feel

Scared to go on, afraid of what people say
No time for that, just step out towards your way
How would you say, you're reborn on this day?
It's much more so easy than you think inside your head

Released passion flows where it's destined to go
No matter the hurdle, it jumps to the goal
Feel how the energy takes over you?
No time to waste, now a new day begins

Dreams are for ones that believe in the soul
Who has the courage to carry it all
Make it come true, what's the point of being scared
Now is the time, won't you let it out?

What do you see in the blink of an eye
What can you find when your heart can decide
Not knowing how to describe what's inside
Oh, show what you got, let it out as you feel

Scared to go on, afraid of what people say
No time for that, just step out towards your way
How would you say, you're reborn on this day?
It's much more so easy than you think inside your head

You'll make it in the end, yes, that's for sure
The power is in your heart

Sun will shine
You look so happy under blue skies

You're with me and I just melt away

Love will call
And we can stay up 'til the night falls
Floating in ecstacy
I'll keep on dreaming you can set me free

If you could give me just a little sign
I'll tell you how I feel inside
I need some courage and the strength, then I will try

I want to tell you how good it could be (hey!)
To live every day with you here by my side
I want you to treasure each moment with me
I know the love will shine

(Let's go!)

La, la, la la la... (etc.)

I love you
Love you love you love you
Love sunshine

So make it true and not bittersweet
Just feel the power of magical dreams
When I'm with you, the love will always shine

So if I pray to God
To help keep me strong
I know He'll call before too long
And then you'll run to me, and you will make love shine

Just carry on
It's you who makes love shine
Shine, love shine

Love shine!

Night after night
Lifting your hands up high
Straight up to the sky

Hoping that someone will
Take you away from all the memories
I can't bring myself to let it go

All the memories that I hold
Got to move on leaving you behind

So each step that I take from you
Breaks my heart with the pain
I can't pretend that all we've had meant nothin'
But it's all okay

It doesn't matter
'Cause now we're not the same
Although it hurts, I've got to go on
I'm moving on

UNLOCK: Beat Request on Systronix Venue

Artist: U1
Genre: Trance
BPM: 120

Difficulty:
BEG: 1
BAS: 3
DIF: 6
EXP: 8

Expert Notes: This chart contains mostly streams, but watch out for a lot of 
 jumps showing up in them, including a few clusters of jumps.  Also, the 
 end has a few off-beat and tap steps to deal with.

Lyrics:

Such a feeling
Lift me up and take me far away
Such a feeling
Now I'm searching for a brand new day

Yeah
Floating in the sky
Yeah
Leave the world behind

Now I'm free
To go just anywhere
And they'll be
A better world out there

Such a feeling
Lift me up and take me far away
Such a feeling
Now I'm searching for a brand new day

UNLOCK: Beat Request on U-Matic Venue

Artist: Sparky
Genre: Happy House
BPM: 140

Difficulty:
BEG: 2
BAS: 4

Expert Notes: A tough mess.  Lots of streams that are really long and 
 crossovery, with jumps everywhere.  About halfway, sixteenth clusters are 
 thrown in, making things worse.

Lyrics:

I want you, I need you
Just say you want my love, too
I want you, I need you, just say you do

Think of the wonderful things we could see
If you said that it would last forever
I know this feeling is so hard to believe
So just wait and see, our love is the key

Under the stars we're dancing in the moonlight
You've captured my heart and set the world alight
Now you're a part of every plan that I make
So tell me you'll always stay

Don't stop the music, listn to the beat
And don't stop the rhythm, it's a part of me
Don't stop, keep movin', I can't get enough
And don't stop the feelin', never have to much

Yeah...

Under the stars we're dancing in the moonlight
You've captured my heart and set the world alight
Now you're a part of every plan that I make
So tell me you'll always stay

Don't stop the music, listn to the beat
And don't stop the rhythm, it's a part of me
Don't stop, keep movin', I can't get enough
And don't stop the feelin', never have to much

Yeah...

Don't stop, don't stop
Don't stop, don't stop

5S. THE REASON =
================

UNLOCK: Beat Request on Tectonic Venue

Artist: Black Rose Garden
Genre: Rock
BPM: 85-98

Difficulty:
BEG: 1
BAS: 3
DIF: 7
EXP: 9

Play Notes: The song starts at 85, then goes up to 98 once the rhythm gets 
 going, but it's not really easy to notice, anyway.  Also, there are two 
 stops: one just before the rhythm begins, and another about halfway through.

Expert Notes: Hard and slow means lots of sixteenths.  The good news is that 
 the rhythm is pretty constant through most of the song.  Once you get to the 
 end, the thirty-second notes begin, making things even more hairy.

Lyrics:

Howling at the full moon
Fight against the protests
We have no function to cry

When was the day that we lost our souls
Forgot about myself, forgot about instinct
Artificial landscapes, and living asthetic
We just stared at the full broken skies

On and on and we're rusting
But we will not stop breathing the air

Hello

Howling at the full moon
Fight against the protests
We have no function to cry
Dreaming inside of the dream
Burning like a bug in a flame

Give us the reason to be here

Artist: The Lonely Hearts
Genre: Dance Pop
BPM: 120

Difficulty:

Expert Notes: The harshness of this song only comes in its streams.  At a 
 relatively slow tempo, these aren't too difficult, but they are persistent.

---

Lyrics:

Take my hand
Boy, you don't have to be afraid
Because I know we're smart enough
To take a chance rather than lose it
Without a try

Can you feel my heart start beating for this moment?
And I want you to come close to me

Now let me be the one for you completely
Boy, you just take my breath away
Just every time you're kissing me
You're touchin' my soul

Now let me be the one for you completely
Boy, you just take my breath away
Just every time you're kissing me
You're touchin' my soul

Kiss me
You're touchin' my soul

 watch for patterns where you'll have a stream, then gallops, because it's 
 common.

Lyrics:

Yes, everything in life is part of destiny
It always seems to me, some things last for eternity
Every once in a while there is a different kind
The spirit flies up to the sky and makes feel so fine
To be with you

For this I have longed, and yes it makes me feel so strong
Don't know why and how, everything's all right now
I believe that every person needs love and understanding
It's just the fact of life we need each other every day

Let's all say

We will live as one together
We will live as one
And we will dream our dreams together
Underneath the sun

And we will sing our song together
Harmony's begun
Yes, we will bear the stormy weather
We will never run

Yes, we will win, our hearts together
We'll lock hand in hand
Oh, life can be so merry if we always carry on

Lyrics:

You're looking for the light, shining oh so bright
Guiding you to fight your way to what you want for you rown
Nothing is easy, you've got to be strong
Gotta stand up for what you believe, a true heart

Listening to others' words
Sometimes interfere what's in your thoughts
Blocking out what flows out from your mind
Blinding what you feel deep inside of your heart

Learning to turn down what you don't believe
Picking the words that you really don't need
Helps you to find all the answers that you were looking for

You're looking for the light, shining oh so bright
Guiding you to fight your way to what you want for you rown
Nothing is easy, you've got to be strong
Gotta stand up for what you believe, a true heart

Don't let them take away
What's in you heart, don't play
By their own rules make it on your own

You're looking for the light
Guiding you to fight your way to what you want for you rown
Nothing is easy, you've got to be strong
Gotta stand up for what you believe, a true heart

Shining oh so bright
Guiding you to fight your way to what you want for you rown
Nothing is easy, you've got to be strong
Gotta stand up for what you believe, a true heart

6. BOSS SONGS (Red Songs)
******************************************************************************

Thankfully, Konami is pulling no punches, and we're given two nice and hard 
songs to round out the list.

===================
6A. SUPER SAMURAI =
===================

UNLOCK: Beat Battle on EV Venue

Artist: jun
Genre: Speed Rave
BPM: 170

Difficulty:
BEG: 2
BAS: 6
DIF: 8
EXP: 10

Play Notes: There are several stops throughout this tune.  The first three 
 occur in the opening "build-up" section.  There are a few more over the 
 course of the song, including one that's almost miniscule.

Expert Notes: As you'd expect from a venerable ten-footer, lots of long 
 streams with crossovers, sixteenths thrown in liberally, and jumps and 
 freezes all over the place.  Watch out for the latter half, where long 
 clusters of sixteenths plague the chart.

Lyrics:

I'm a samurai coming to NYC
I'm a samurai coming to NYC
I'm a samurai coming to NYC
To NYC, to NYC

I'm a samurai coming to New York, you're caught
In the reign of the warlord, looking for my sport
The swords get drawn
The enemies are warned
And bodies will fall when a new day dawns

I'm a samurai coming to NYC
To NYC, to NYC

You paid the price
You won't survive
Let my sword slice and dice
And deal death precise when I
Rise out of the shadows for heavy battles
Let my foes run then hide
On the streets of the Big Apple

Explosion attack
100-hand slap
I crack skulls on katana impact
Back for revenge, I'm sent to cause mayhem
Nobody's friend, I tend to leave dead men

You're out!

I'm a samurai coming to NYC
I'm a samurai coming to NYC
I'm a samurai coming to NYC
To NYC, to NYC

6B. tokyoEVOLVED =
==================

Artist: NAOKIunderground
Genre: Techno
BPM: 70-280

Difficulty:
BEG: 3
BAS: 7
DIF: 9
EXP: 10

Play Notes: The song starts at 70, then speeds up to 280 quickly for the rest 
 of the song.  There are also several stops at various points in the song, 
 which I really can't prepare you for, for a reason I'll explain below.

Expert Notes: Here's the ultimate truth about the hardest song in this game.  
 IT CHANGES.  Every time you play it on Expert (and probably on the other 
 difficulties, too), you may be playing a different track.  Now, to be fair, 
 the differences aren't across the entire track.  It seems that only in the 
 latter half will the game throw in a new variation.  Regardless, in the end, 
 you're still playing an intensely hard song with lots of streams, jumps, and 
 stops.  You're just going to have to be the best watcher ever, know the 
 patterns, and do your best.

7. GROOVE CIRCUIT MODE
******************************************************************************

Groove Circuit is the "Story" mode for this game, although it's more along 
the lines of the "Master Modes" for the recent PS2 DDR games.  The idea is 
that you select a venue, then perform songs on that venue, oftentimes 
completing a specific challenge.  If you pass, you'll unlock stuff and move 
on to the harder challenges.

In almost every venue, there's a specific pattern to how you tackle the 
songs:

First is the "Mission", where you are given your entire list of songs to 
play with, a condition, and you have to complete a certain number of songs 
in that condition (such as beating three songs with at least a "B" on Basic or 
higher).  As long as you've unlocked the songs, you can pick any songs you 
want.  Completing the "Mission" will give you two new stages to play on.

Next is the "Request".  Your conditions (as above) are still in effect, but 
now you have to complete certain specific songs that the game "requests" for 
you to play.  Most times, these songs are new unlockables.  Completing all 
the requested songs unlocks the songs for regular play, and will also give 
you the stage you played on during this part.

Lastly is the "Battle".  You are now in a forced 1-player Battle Mode against 
another character, the Venue Master.  In addition to meeting the conditions, 
you also must score higher than your opponent, and this is done on a new 
song, as well.  Completing this battle will unlock the song, the venue you 
played on, and a new outfit for the character you played against.  You may 
also unlock a new Workout Program if you have all the songs for it.
Futhermore, completing enough venues will unlock new ones.

As you can see from my separating, there are "rounds" to GC Mode.  A "round", 
as I define it, is a trip completely around all nine venues.  The most 
important round is the first, as it's where you get almost all the new 
songs as you go through all the venues.

8. OTHER MODES
******************************************************************************
==================
8A. Workout Mode =
==================

The first thing that separates Workout play from the regular setup is 
that you can pick a profile to load, which will keep track of your progress.  

Once that's done, you access the Workout Menu, where you set the criteria 
for your program:

Menu: Select whether your goal will be time played, calories burned, or 
 no setting.
Target: Set your limit for time or calories.
Workout Step: Turning this on will make the songs considerably easier.
Jump: Turning this off will remove jump steps.
Program: Select Free to select songs as you wish.  Select Course to pick 
 set Workout Programs to play.

From there, you select your song/course and play as normal until you reach 
your goal.

You can unlock more Workout Programs by unlocking all the songs in the 
respective program.

9B. E-mail Guidelines =
=======================

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 Hotest Party.  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 Hottest Party" at one point in your e-mail.  I have 
more than one DDR 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.

=============
9C. Credits =
=============

CJayC, SBAllen, and all webmasters for having this on their sites.

Wikipedia, and all those involved, for info on several of the artists.

Konami and the BEMANI studio, for their effort in bringing a superb game to 
the Wii.

=====================
9D. Version Updates =
=====================

Version 0.8 - (10/14/07) - I'm missing lyrics for several songs.  I totally 
 got burnt out trying to transcribe them from video taping them, so I think 
 I'll be waiting until the soundtrack comes from Japan (should be a couple of 
 weeks) to see if there's a Lyrics booklet.  If not, then at least I'll have 
 high-quality, easily-pausable tracks to listen to.

Version 1.0 - (11/5/07) - Well, it finally got here, and yes, there's a lyrics 
 booklet.  So, all the lyrics are complete, and Workout Mode has been added, 
 so I guess we're pretty much done here.

====================
9E. The Final Word =
=====================

Well, congratulations to Konami.  They've finally properly worked the hand 
concept into their games, as well as bringing an authoritative version of DDR 
to a Nintendo system.  Now, I just want more original licenses, and more 
representation from the BEMANI artists (like dj TAKA or Tatsh).

Take care and happy dancing!
