    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.

     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. ^_^

    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

    Lyrics:
    
    Everybody dance now
    Give me the music
    Give me the music
    Everybody dance now
    
    Here is the dome back with the bass
    The jam is live in effect and I don't waste time
    Off the mic with a dope rhyme, jump to the rhythm 
    Jump, jump to the rhythm, jump 
    Everybody over here, everybody over there
    The crowd is live enough as I pursue this groove
    Party people in the house move
    
    Left to right (groove) work me all night
    Come on let's sweat, baby
    Let the music take control
    Let the rhythm move you
    Sweat
    Sweat
    Let the music take your soul
    Let the rhythm move you

    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

    Well, my girl's in the next room
    Sometimes I wish she was you
    I guess we never really moved on
    It's really good to hear your voice say my name
    It sounds so sweet
    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
    With the lips of an angel

    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)

    Is enough enough

    (the light where you belong)

    Play Notes: This song starts at 83, then doubles at the chorus, then slows 
     down again for the bridge, then goes back to 166 until the end.
    
    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.

    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...

    I got to go for mine

    You're making me want to say, yo
    
    I know you're trying to leave, but excuse me miss

    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

    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!

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Yeah

    Fly away, fly away, fly away, fly away, fly away

    In this game, use your feet and dance to the beat

    Don't return your feet to the center
    Just keep standing there!

    "Right!  Left!"

    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

    Taking it ten little steps at a time, and I am

    Love, love, love, love, la-la-la-love shine, yeah yeah yeah, yeah!
    
    Sun will shine
    You look so happy under blue skies
    It's such a lovely day
    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!

    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.

    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

    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

    Don't let them take away
    What's in you heart, don't play

    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

    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.

    In the second round, all venues are reset, and EV is locked once again, but 
    all other venues are still open.  Beating venues at this point doesn't get

    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.

    I'm not going to allow people with small personal sites to post this FAQ.

    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!
