Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Love (Love) Shine" may be a classic, so jump onto the stage and hit the right arrows with me. Riyu Kosaka, who performed this tune, was also a major part of what Bemani-based band?

Answer: BeForU

BeForU was created as a result of open auditions organized by Bemani, creators of "Dance Dance Revolution", as they wanted musicians to perform songs for their rhythm and music-based games. Four girls were eventually chosen and they began their career with the song "DIVE" featured in "DDR 5th Mix". Over the years, many of the girls in the group disbanded and others were called in to take their places. Over ten girls would be considered members, past or present, by the end of their first decade. Riyu Kosaka would go on to produce songs solo including "Love (Love) Shine" which would appear in many versions of the game including "Supernova", arcade versions of "Extreme 2", and others.
2. Captain Jack, a band releasing Europop Dance songs for the "Dance Dance Revolution" series, did not release which of these?

Answer: Strict Machine

Frankie Gee, the Cuban bandleader for the Captain Jack band, passed away in 2005 but the group was immortalized in several versions of "Dance Dance Revolution", both in console and arcade versions. Despite this, Captain Jack rebuilt themselves in 2008 to continue releasing albums in Europe. Particularly, the band is known for their self-titled single, "Captain Jack (Grandale Remix)" which appeared on arcade versions of "Dance Dance Revolution Extreme" and console versions of "Extreme 2" (PS2). "Centerfold" would appear as a remix of a J. Geils Band song on "Supernova" (PS2), "In the Navy" would be a Village People remix from "Max 2" (PS2), and "Together & Forever" appeared on a Japanese Game Boy version. "Strict Machine" is a song by Goldfrapp which appeared on "Supernova 2" (and on the Billboard charts).
3. "In the Heat of the Night" and "Kiss Me" were songs by which German "Dance Dance Revolution" artists?

Answer: E-ROTIC

Making their "Dance Dance Revolution" debut on "3rd Mix" in 1999, E-ROTIC appeared in a number of games since. Hailing from Germany, E-ROTIC has released a number of CDs in Europe and have been notable for the amount of innuendo they throw into their songs.

After the success of their dance game singles, they released albums in Japan to success. According to Bemani, E-ROTIC became one of the most licensed artists in the game, second only to Captain Jack. Other songs by the group include "Turn Me On" and "Gimme Gimme Gimme".
4. "I've been searching for a man All across Japan Just to find, to find my samurai" This song, by the pop band smile.dk, is quite famous in the canon. What is its name?

Answer: Butterfly

One of the game's most popular songs, "Butterfly" has been part of the "Dance Dance Revolution" series since its first release in 1998. It has since appeared on over ten games (in the series) from over the years and was remixed for "Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2" and for its ten-year anniversary on "Dance Dance Revolution X".

The band responsible, smile.dk, is named as such because they are from Denmark. "Butterfly" came from the band's debut studio album, "Smile". The band also released "Boys" and "Mr. Wonderful" in later games.
5. "Healing Vision" and "Trip Machine", both more intense trance songs, are from what "Dance Dance Revolution" artist?

Answer: DE-SIRE

Over the years, both "Healing Vision" and "Trip Machine" have been repetitively remixed for "Dance Dance Revolution" console and arcade titles. The original "Trip Machine" appeared on the original "Dance Dance Revolution" while "Healing Vision" debuted in the "Konamix" version. DE-SIRE's song, "Chaos", also appeared in the North American release of "Supernova", being one of the more difficult songs on the soundtrack. DE-SIRE is also a part of the mash-up responsible for the "TSUGARU" songs in the game series (along with RevenG).
6. J-Pop group 'jun' is responsible for which of these songs in the "Dance Dance Revolution" setlist?

Answer: Sweet Sweet (Love) Magic

jun, hailing from Japan, became one of the series' later acquisitions having first appeared in arcade and console versions of "Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2". Despite this, they quickly became one of the series most frequently-seen groups. Known for upbeat J-Pop, their singles include "Sweet Sweet (Love) Magic" (first seen in "Extreme 2"), "HAPPY(star)ANGEL" (in "Supernova"), and "TRUE(heart)LOVE" (in "Supernova"). Due to the group's tendency to omit sexual references in their music, the songs have been frequently seen on Wii releases of the series.
7. NAOKI, known for "B4U", "BRILLIANT 2U", and "CAN'T STOP FALLIN' IN LOVE", has also released songs in the "Dance Dance Revolution" universe under what other name?

Answer: NAOKI Underground

NAOKI is another prolific artist in the "Dance Dance Revolution" catalogue with several singles under the belt. Aside from those listed in the question (and their several remixes), NAOKI also released "DYNAMITE RAVE" and "Still in My Heart". While the NAOKI Underground name has been used slightly less, some songs, like "DDRMAX's" "INSERTiON" have been seen. NAOKI has also been known to work alongside musician Paula Terry on "Dance Dance Revolution" tracks, particularly "DESTINY" (from "DDRMAX2") and "MEMORIES" (from "Dance Dance Revolution Extreme"). NAOKI also worked with smile.dk for later releases. DJ Simon is known for "321 Stars" while RE-VENGE released the "AFRONOVA" songs on early "Dance Dance Revolution" games.
8. On consoles, Akira Yamaoka has been known for his work in regards to the soundtrack of "Silent Hill" games. Which of these songs in the "Dance Dance Revolution" series did he compose?

Answer: Inside Your Heart

"Inside Your Heart" was made specifically for "Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2" (along with "Injection of Love (Hina Mix)" while other songs he created appeared on other console versions (ie. "Supernova" and "Extreme", specifically). Having worked for Konami for many years, Yamaoka has been known for his atmospheric music from the "Silent Hill" games from the series debut to "Shattered Memories" in 2009.

In 2009, Yamaoka left Konami and began working with Suda-51 on the "No More Heroes" sequel.
9. "LOVE IS ORANGE" is a song performed under which of these pseudonyms?

Answer: Orange Lounge

Orange Lounge is a pseudonym used by Bemani in-house musician Tomosuke Funaki for the "Dance Dance Revolution" games. Depending on the style of music created, a different pseudonym is used. Orange Lounge is specifically responsible for "LOVE IS ORANGE" (from "Extreme 2"), "Mobo(heart)Moga" (from "Extreme"), and "Mondo Street" (from Supernova 2"). To be fair, many of the musicians in-house at Bemani use pseudonyms and aliases. Yuichi Asami, for example, performed a remix of "Healing Vision" under the name 2MB while Riyu Kosaka of BeForU has also been credited as Mimi Roberts for a recording of "Baby's Tears". DRAGOON is actually Seiji Koga.
10. "MaxX Unlimited", one of the most notorious 'finale-type' titles in the "Dance Dance Revolution series, was created by which of these?

Answer: Z

"MaxX Unlimited", along with "Fascination MaxX", "The legend of MaxX", "MaxX 300", and others, were created under several pseudonyms in the Bemani world, but each one is regarded as the cream of the crop for more persistent players. Extremely difficult to pass on almost any difficulty, the BPM for these songs usually fluctuates between 150 and 320, so sometimes memorization is a good idea.

The higher difficulties of these titles should only be attempted by the pros...with stamina...who aren't playing on a full stomach... These songs have appeared on console and arcade versions of the game, but on arcade versions, the player will usually need to play their third song (a specific one) on the hardest difficulty, hit the notes perfectly, and play the 'Encore'.
