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

Hi and Konnichi wa!  Welcome to my FAQ for DDR Ultramix for the X-BOX!  I 
refer to this as a "FAQ/Walkthrough", but there's very little "walking 
through" to be done with this game.  Anyone familiar with Konami's most 
famous member of the BEMANI series will know that there are few written tips 
that can be given for the Dance Dance Revolution series.  You have to trust 
your own feet and your burning soul.  However, I will, in this FAQ, give 
you the heads-up on what the songs are, where they come from, and a few tips 
to get you ready for tackling them...

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

Q: What is Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix?

A: DDR Ultramix is Konami of Hawaii's adaptation of the DDR series for the 
 X-BOX.

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: How many songs in this mix?

A: 51, standard.  Add an extra 30 if you plan to download song packs.

Q: Is this game X-BOX LIVE capable?

A: Yes.  By going online, you're able to play Battle Mode with other people 
 on LIVE, as well as download additional content for a small fee.

Q: Can I use Song Packs from Ultramix 1 in Ultramix 2?

A: Yes, but to be able to use the song packs in both games, you must download 
 them through Ultramix 1.  If you did so already, no problem, but if you 
 first download Song Packs 1 through 6 in DDR Ultramix 2, you won't be able to 
 use them in this game.

Q: Does this game support Song Packs 7 and up?

A: No.  You can only use Song Pack 1 through 6 in this game.  7 and up are 
 only available in DDR Ultramix 2.

Q: Is this just like any DDR in the arcades?

A: Not really.  For licensing reasons, the fact that this is the very first 
 X-BOX DDR, and the introduction of brand new songs for the American audience, 
 we're given a hodgepodge of DDR material in this mix from several different 
 mixes.  Furthermore, the game isn't entirely set up like in the arcades.  For 
 instance, in Game Mode, there is no "stages".

Q: Why isn't (insert song here) in this mix or any others?

A: Usually, it's directly related to the fact that, despite Konami's usage 
 of these songs for DDR, the songs are still owned by the songs' artists.  
 This means that the contract the artists have with Konami only refers to the 
 games they specify, which is generally the arcade mix, and (most of the time) 
 the corresponding Japanese Playstation console port.  Getting the songs over 
 here is a whole other story, and I feel that we're lucky to get the songs that 
 we do.  Of course, if your beef is why we don't get certain Konami Originals, 
 then I dunno what to tell you.

Q: What does this mix have for special modes?

A: Well, they have the standard Training, Workout and Edit Modes, as well as 
 a Challenge Mode that hasn't been seen on these shores yet, which sets up 
 specific DDR tasks for you to complete.

Q: Just who is NAOKI?

A: Naoki Maeda has been with Konami for many years.  He is the leader of 
 Konami AM Internal Sound Team, who are in charge of coming up with songs for 
 each new DDR release.  He's responsible for many songs throughout DDR-dom, 
 under lots of artist names.  He also has the support of other artists and 
 vocalists, such as Paula Terry, Thomas Howard, and Aaron G.  His artist names 
 include, but are not limited to: Omega (the symbol), 1479, 180, 190, 190', 
 200, 270, 290, 8 bit, B3-PROJECT, BIG-O, BLUE DESTROYERS, Crystal Aliens, 
 DANDY MINIERO, d-complex, DJ KAZU, DE-SIRE, DIVAS, DR. VIBE, FACTOR-X, FIXX, 
 KTz, Luv UNLIMITED, mitsu-O!, MR. DOG, MUSTACHE MEN, N&S, N.M.R, NAOKI, NAOKI 
 190, NAOKI underground, NM, NO.9, NW260, RE-VENGE, RevenG, Stone Bros., 
 TailBros, THE FINAL BAND, THE SURRENDERS, UZI-LAY, Z, ZZ.  Some of these are 
 not actually names for Naoki, but sometimes artists he's used for vocals in 
 the songs.

Q: What is beatmania?

A: Developed almost concurrently with DDR, BM is a series of games where you 
 use your fingers instead of your feet.  You have a set of keys, like a piano, 
 and you have to tap those to create the music (each key tap adds music to the 
 playing score).  Also, you have a turntable to "scratch", which also adds 
 sound.  The original beatmania had 5 keys, beatmania IIDX has 7 keys (and is 
 the only one of the series still coming out with new mixes), and beatmania 
 III has 5 keys and a foot pedal.

Q: What is Dance ManiaX?

A: This is a short-lived series that was made to showcase more Dancemania 
 tunes, as well as a bunch of Konami Originals.  It's played with light beams, 
 and blocking them in time with the music.

Q: Hey, did you know that (insert song here) was in (insert game here) first?

A: Well, please, if I've made mistakes, let me know.  I pride myself on a 
 healthy knowledge of BEMANI, but no one's perfect.  If something's wrong, 
 tell me.

Q: I think a genre you have listed is incorrect.

A: Tell me what you think it should be, but present a good case, because I've 
asked a lot of people about this subject.  However, if you're disputing a 
genre that has a star (*) after it, then I won't bother, because those are 
the official genres as Konami states.

Q: Who are those goofy people dancing?

A: Why, that's Afro and Lady, two of the original DDR characters, graphically 
 retooled to look like more normal humans.  Personally, I prefer the 
 originals.

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

Select Game Mode on the menu screen to get underway.

---

Select Your Style

Single Mode: This is a 1-player mode using the pad you used to start the game.
Versus Mode: This is a 2-player mode where each player uses a pad.
Double Mode: This is a 1-player mode where the player uses both pads.  Every 
 song has different steps for Double Mode than Single.

---

Select Difficulty

Light (LGT): Most songs range from 1 to 5 feet.  This is pretty simple if 
 you're getting used to DDR.
Standard (STD): 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.
Heavy (HVY): 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.

---

Select Music

Use Left and Right to switch songs.  Double tap Up or Down to change the 
difficulty.  Press A to select.  Press B to go back a screen.

Press Start to change the sorting from the standard setup to alphabetical, by 
BPM from slowest to fastest, and your "best", which is measured by the total 
score from all your plays of the song divided by the number of feet of the 
difficulty each time you played.

Press Back to access Edit Data you've thrown together for that song.

While your selection's on a song, you'll see a little graphic for the name.  
Above the picture, you'll see the BPM for the song (which may be dynamic).
Below the graphic are the foot rating for the song (the higher # of feet, 
the harder the song) and the Groove Radar.

Groove Radar: This is a graphical representation of the difficulty of the 
song.  It's broken down into five attributes:
- Stream: More or less the overall number of steps.
- Voltage: How many steps are sandwiched into how much time.  Higher voltage 
 means more steps in less time.
- Air: The overall number of double steps (time spent in the air).
- Freeze: The overall number and length of freeze arrows.
- Chaos: The number of weird steps (not straight 1/4 and 1/8, or steps that 
 force you turn as you step).

If you can't figure out what song you want, you can select ROULETTE.  This 
will start the song list rolling.  Press A to stop it.  It's tough to get it 
to stop on a song you want, though.  Once your song's picked, you can still 
adjust the difficulty.  If you haven't unlocked MAX 300 yet, it will appear 
at random on the list.

Also, in this mix, 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 Options

Hold down A as you select your songs to bring up the Song Options menu:

Speed: This is the speed of the arrows on the screen.  It doesn't affect the 
 speed of the song, just the arrows.
Boost: If turned on, the arrows will gradually speed up as they move on the 
 game screen.
Appearance: "Visible" is the normal setting.  If "Hidden" is on, the arrows 
 will vanish about half-way.  If "Sudden" is on, the arrows will appear about 
 half-way.  If "Stealth" is on, you won't see the arrows at all.
Turn: "Off" is normal.  "Mirror" rotates all arrows 180 degrees.  "Left" 
 rotates them 90 degrees to the left.  "Right" in the other direction.  
 "Shuffle" randomizes the steps.
Other: "Off" changes nothing.  "Little" will eliminate several steps to make 
 it easier.  "Flat" makes all arrows the same color, as opposed to the 
 grading colors used to distinguish beats.  "Solo" will change colors so that 
 you can distinguish beats more easily.  "Help Arrow" throws gold arrows into 
 play.  If you step on them, you get a big boost to your Dance Gauge.
Scroll: "Standard" is normal bottom to top scrolling.  "Reverse" is, oddly 
 enough, scrolling from top to bottom.
Freeze Arrow: You can turn the Freeze Arrows off.
Step: Yet another chance to change the difficulty of your song.

---

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 Gauge.  It starts about half full.  As 
you step properly, it'll fill more.  If you misstep, your Dance Gauge will 
start emptying.  If it empties completely, game over.

On the bottom of the screen is the difficulty (in case you forgot), and your 
score as it tallies up.

Also in the middle of the screen, you'll see words pop up as you step:

PERFECT: You stepped more or less precisely on the arrow.  Combo continues, 
 the Dance Gauge increases, and you get the maximum possible score from that 
 step.
GREAT: You just about stepped on the arrow.  Combo continues, the Dance Gauge 
 increases, but you don't get the full score for the step.
GOOD: You're off on the step by a bit.  Combo stops, but the Dance Gauge 
 doesn't change.
ALMOST: You're off on the step by quite a bit.  Combo stops, and your dance 
 meter decreases.
BOO: You completely missed the step.  Combo stops, and your Dance Gauge 
 decreases.

OK!: You stepped on the whole Freeze Arrow.
NG: You stepped off the Freeze Arrow before it ended. Combo continues, but 
 your Dance Gauge will decrease.

Also marked on the screen is your combo, which is how many PERFECTS and GREATS 
you have in a row.  The announcer will tell you when you hit 100 combo, 200, 
etc.

---

Evaluation

Once you complete the song, you'll see an Evaluation Screen.  You'll receive 
a letter grade, a tally on how many of each step you got, a meter on how much 
of the Groove Radar you filled, your maximum combo, and your score.

The letters are AAA, AA, A, B, C, D, and E.

E is a failing grade.

D through AA are given depending on your dancing abilities.  Important aspects 
are your combos and your step quality: a large number of PERFECTs will 
drastically increase your score, while even a few BOOs will lower it 
considerably.

AAA is given for all PERFECTs and OKs on Freeze Arrows.

Press A on the Evaluation screen to return to the song list.

3D. Dancing Tips for the Beginner =
===================================

KEEP PRACTICING!

So, you've just got into DDR, eh?  Good for you!  You've become a part of a 
cult sensation that still holds tons of respect in arcades across the country!  
This game will probably seem quite overwhelming to you at first, especially 
if you watch people play it and watch them do 9-footers.  Don't sweat it.  
You CAN be as good as them with the proper practice and effort.

If you really want to get into this, definitely use the Official DDR Pad.  
There's no X-BOX controller to use in the arcades, so learn the pad nice and 
early.  Most game stores have a few of these tucked away (possibly more, if 
Konami's hyping this game like they should).  If you're truly a beginner, you 
may just want to start with a nice cheap pad.  That way, if you find it's not 
for you, you're not out a huge investment.

So, to begin, use the Training Mode the game provides you.  You can adjust the 
game to your style.  It's no Lesson Mode, but it's all you have in this 
game.

Despite the Training Mode, here are some tips I can give you as a beginner:

1. Get a good feeling for the beat.  People who have performed with music have 
an advantage.  People in marching band have a serious advantage.  ~_^  You'll 
be stepping to the beat in these early stages, so get used to it now.

2. Now that you have the beat, you must "find the arrows".  Yeah, sure.  I 
know they're right there in front of you, to your sides, and behind you, but 
can you hit them without looking?  Early on, you'll find that's your biggest 
problem: taking a step and not landing on the arrow.  If you have to look, 
look, but that tactic won't last forever, so before a song takes off, take 
some cursory steps to make sure you're hitting arrows.

3. Keep your center.  Especially on cheap pads with no definition, you'll find 
yourself often taking leave of the center of the pad as you continue stepping.  
If there's a break in the song, look down to make sure you're in the center.  

4. Use the balls of your feet.  You may notice, after some days of a lot of 
playing, that your ankles will start hurting.  That's normal, and it's 
happened to most everyone I know that DDRs.  This is your feet telling you to 
not step with your heels, but with the front of the foot.  Get into that 
habit.

5. Now that you have these basics, head into Light 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.  Try to keep your songs 
at three feet or below, but don't be afraid to venture out into the great 
unknown.

=======================================
3E. Dancing Tips for the Intermediate =
=======================================

KEEP PRACTICING!

Well, you're definitely not a n00b anymore (pardon my French).  You're at the 
point where you wouldn't completely humiliate yourself at the arcades, but 
you probably won't impress many people there.  In fact, you may just bore them 
with your simple steps.  It's time to go to the next level.

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 blue blue waters of Standard 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.

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

If you're really serious now, it's once again time for a new pad.  Although 
7, 8, and even some 9-footers are possible on a soft, flimsy pad, you just 
won't get the high scores you cherish.  For this, I turned to RedOctane's 
Ignition 2.0.  It's also a soft pad, but the thick foam insert, soft gripping 
bottom, and raised step platforms make it a good pad for aspiring champions, 
all for a paltry 100 clams.

Of course, if you have the money to blow (approximately $300), you may want 
to take it even further and buy the Cobalt Flux pad, which is a custom-made 
hard metal pad.  It's VERY resilient, and much like pads you'll see in the 
arcades.

Anyway, pads aside, it's time to get down to business:

First, you better have mastered the stuff from the previous sections.  I want 
to be able to yell out a song title and for you to hum it right there so you 
know what it sounds like.  I don't wanna see your feet touch that center, 
soldier, or you'll drop and give me fifty.  At this point, you should also 
have quick enough eye-foot coordination so that matching arrows on the screen 
with proper steps is second-nature.

Now, for some new tactics:

Chaos.  You'll soon find as you reach the higher levels, that not all arrows 
are quarter notes and eighth notes.  You'll find sixteenths, twelfths, and 
thirty-second notes thrown in to mess you up.  Very rarely will they be in 
random.  Almost always, they'll match up with how the song goes, so you'll 
at least have that going for you.  So, a thorough knowledge of the songs will 
allow you to surmount this hurdle with little difficulty.

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 Heavy 
Mode.

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

4. DEFAULT SONGS
******************************************************************************

The way the song list has the normal set up is to arrange the licenses first, 
then the Konami Originals first by order of their Light difficulty, then 
alphabetically after that.  Well, that's all well and good, but it makes for 
lousy FAQ ordering, so, for simplicity's sake, we'll go alphabetically.

=========
4A. .59 =
=========

Artist: dj TAKA
Genre: Chill Out*
BPM: 135

Difficulty: 
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 4   4
STD: 6   6
HVY: 7   7

Play Notes: The song carries at a steady pace, until the end, where it slows 
 down ever so slightly.

Heavy Notes: Prepare for lengthy streams during the main melody, with a 
 couple of gallops thrown in to match the piano hits.  The streams are fairly 
 straightforward, though.  Also, during the bridge, you'll find some streams 
 of sixteenths, but they stay on the same two arrows.

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: beatmania IIDX 2nd Style
DDR Debut: DDR 4th Mix (Arcade)
American Appearances: DDR Konamix, DDR Extreme USA
Artist Notes: dj TAKA should be no stranger to Bemani fans.  Often considered 
 to be just as popular (if not moreso) than Naoki, Takayuki Ishikawa has been 
 with Konami since Beatmania IIDX.  He's done many DDR and Beatmania tunes. 
Misc. Notes: So, what's the significance of ".59"?  Well, "point five nine" 
 in Japanese is "ten-go-kyu".  This is very similar to "tengoku", which is 
 Japanese for "heaven" or "paradise".

====================================
4B. ABSOLUTE (Cuff-N-Stuff it Mix) =

Genre: Epic Trance
BPM: 146

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 3   4
STD: 6   7
HVY: 6   7

Heavy Notes: Definitely not as tough as the original.  It's mostly small 
 streams.  The thing that might throw you is the large number of freezes, and 
 a few odd tricks they try do with them.

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: BRAND NEW
American Appearances: DDR Extreme 2
Artist Notes: Thuggie D. is a psuedonym for "Gamebeat", a sound group that 
 Konami of Hawaii hired to create new songs for Ultramix.  They're headed by 
 Darryl S. Duncan, most probably where the "D" came from.  This is a remix of 
 the classic tune of the same name by dj TAKA, featured in DDR Konamix and 
 DDR Extreme USA.

Heavy Notes: Small streams, and some double steps inserted into the streams, 
 but very little.  With the nice easy tempo, you'll find that this is probably 
 the easiest Heavy in the game.

Lyrics:

Let me sing it to you

Why are we here like this?
I don't know, too many drinks and a kiss?
Male and female, what is there to do?
That's right, the beasty rendezvous
You wanna go Greco-Roman style?
To meet your needs I'll even run a mile
Be prepared, we're gonna have some fun
And the time has come
Round one

(Yeah)
(Come on)
(Here we go, here we go)
(4,3,2,1)

After the game of love baby
All I wanna do is be lazy
Stay in bed like we don't care
What's up outside
After the game of love baby
You know you're drivin' me crazy
Between the sheets
Just you and me

Hey baby, what did ya think of that?
What?!
You want some more?
Man!
Hey ref, if there is one, that is
Ring that bell for us
Round Two!

BPM: 64

Difficulty:

LGT: 2   2

Heavy Notes: The biggest issue is the incredibly slow tempo.  The song's in 
 triplets.  Other than that, the steps are pretty easy.

Lyrics:

I was the happiest guy
That's what everyone said (everyone said)
But, inside I was lonely then
Still I played my part so well
No one could ever tell
Just a smiling face
On an empty shell

And then
Look what you did when you came along (Look what you did)
Made me see I was wrong (What you did) 
I felt so thick
I'm losing my mind
But, I don't really care cause I'm satisfied
Look what you did to me now (Look what you did)
My resistance is all breaking down (My resistances)
Now it's up to you
I'm in love with you, anyhow

(When I dream of you)
Oh, won't you look (what you did)

Look what you did to me now
Turned my universe upside down
I don't recognize who I was any more
I guess I was just playing a clown
I thank heaven above (heaven above)
For showing me what it's made of (it's made of)
Look what you did to me now (Look what you did)
I'm in love

Genre: Speed Rave
BPM: 170

Difficulty:

LGT: 4   4
STD: 6   6

Heavy Notes: Welcome to Flavor Country, ladies and germs.  There are a few 
 gallops to contend with at the main chorus, and at the bridge, but the 
 majority of the entire song is massive waves of streams with crossovers and 
 multiple taps, all coming at a nice crisp 170 BPM.  This is a very good song 
 for practicing your stamina and crossovers.

---

Lyrics:

My life
meant nothing to me
then a guy like you came along

Everything
is moving so fast,
I gotta get my feet on the ground

Unhappy days are over 'cause I can
always be with you

Lying in your arms day by day,
makes me feel Ohh... so brand new

Can't stop fallin' in love
Tell me you will be true (forever baby)
I just can't stop dreaming of you
everyday (every way)

Say you love me baby
Say you will always be mine
You'll never break my heart

I just can't stop fallin' in love
Baby you became
Makin' love with you
is all I wanna do (wanna do)

Can't stop fallin' in love
Give your heart and soul
Stay with me this time
and we'll make history (you and me)

Difficulty:

LGT: 3   3

Like a dream, soon things like 
I've only imagined before will come to me.
This love song marks the beginning because 
now you're the only one who can turn my feelings to love. 

Everyday and everywhere a rainbow spreads across our hearts
All seven colors of that melody flow into the sky as far as we can see.
Everyday and every time, echoing in our hearts
Is a sweet harmony that will encompass our love as long as we are here. 

La la lala... 
Oooohh, yeah! 

Everyday and everywhere, make sure of the love again
As we go, this feeling keeps on going, just like this song!
Everyday and every time, I'll always bring you
The rhythm that'll make you love me forever!

Misc. Notes: KCEH is caught holding the ball on this one: the steps are not 
 the actual steps for CANDY <3.  Instead, for some reason, they used the

4G. Castles In The Sky =

Genre: Trance
BPM: 140

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 3   3
STD: 6   7
HVY: 8   9

Heavy Notes: There are streams of decent length here, but nothing too 
 difficult.  The hard part comes when you have to throw sixteenths in the mess, 
 including the long bunch just before the main melody.  Also, careful on the 
 verse, because the steps don't quite follow the lyrics.

---

Lyrics:

Do you ever question your life?
Do you ever wonder why?

Do you ever see in your dreams
All the castles in the sky?

Oh tell me why
Do we build castles in the sky?
Oh tell me why
All the castles way up high
Please tell me why
Do we build castles in the sky?
Oh tell me why
All the castles way up high

Heavy Notes: Well, the good news is that there's very little turning.  The 
 bad news is that about every other hard element is in this song.  Double 
 steps at the beginning of streams, gallops in the beginning, middle, and end, 
 and a chaotic ending, following the music.  Also, there are several double 
 and triple taps on single arrows throughout.

Sorry, but could I have the music louder?

Yeah drop the bomb! Just drop the bomb!

I'm kinda dizzy, 'cause of my dreams...

Yeah drop the bomb!

Getting sick and tired of the fossil-like system
Now or never it's the time to resist 'em
It's easy to blast them all away
Pull a trigger, push a button, say adios to today
Don't get me wrong, I'm a pacifist
The mind can do more than the fist
Explosives are not what it takes
(You know, terrorists always make these mistakes)

What we gotta do is build momentum
If you need the right tools invent 'em
Ride the wave of time, come feel the rhythm
The march to the future has begun, get with 'em
The brain is the generator of almighty power
Either do it now or your master plan goes sour
Yeah!  Are you ready to take that fall?
It's up to you to make that call to drop the bomb!

Yeah, drop the bomb! 
Just drop the bomb! 
Let me see that bomb!

Just...

What we gotta do is build momentum
If you need the right tools invent 'em
Ride the wave of time, come feel the rhythm

Play Notes: The songs starts at 98 BPM for eight measures, then speeds up to 
 the standard 196 for much of the song.  A little after halfway through, 
 you'll come upon the super slowdown, which will lower the BPM to 49 as you 
 hear heartbeats, then a speed up back to 196 until the end, which drops back 
 down to 98.

Heavy Notes: The opener is hard, requiring you to follow the opening 
 percussion, which includes sixteenth notes, and it's not a steady pattern, 
 either.  Once the song gets going, you'll face several streams, short at 
 first, then getting longer as you get into the song.  At the major slowdown, 
 you'll be tapping the heartbeats, which aren't all spaced apart the same 
 way.  Then, you'll go back up to speed, where you'll find it's relatively 
 easy to the end.

Difficulty:

Heavy Notes: The tempo is definitely your biggest enemy.  Besides the great 
 speed, there isn't much to point out, besides the common occurence of the 
 step pattern "left-right, up, down, left-right", which you'll learn to do 
 quite well.

Lyrics:

I was the teacher and I made you learn
I was the flame, and you just got burnt
By me the one and only, Chaos is here
To preach havoc and destruction and to strike fear

Demolishin' my foes just like that
I see the fools and they want to combat
So I pull out the same rhyme, don't waste no time
Brushin' them off with the freshest of lines
So we could see who is the better of the best
Well I've won but they've flunked the test

Stoppin' for no one just like the shogun
My blade is my rhymes, usin' it, then I'm done

Picture me, I'm on top of my world now
Picture me, I'm ahead of my game
Never stop, not for anyone, not now
Gonna take you up all the same

(ah, on top of, ahhh I'm on top, oh on top of the world oh world)

Picture me, I'm on top of my world now
Picture me, I'm ahead of my game
Never stop, not for anyone, not now
Gonna take you up all the same

Picture me, I'm on top of my world now
Picture me, I'm ahead of my game
Never stop, not for anyone, not now
Gonna take you up all the same
all the same
all the same

Oh yeah, that's right, you'll be alone
Why don't you get out, won't you feel the need
You got so much of what you like
You better looks at life, cause I've got this for you

Yeah, we want you to savor day, for you to get away
Now if you don't care about what I say, then you gotta think about the time
Because it's on your mind, it got your body goin'
In the motion, as I'm going through this flowing groove, it's funky

Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on doin' it
All new happy on your own (keep on, keep on, keep on, oh)
Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on doin' it (What about my love)

Lyrics:

A fool for love
He knew that his heart was healing
He'd been hurt too much to try again
But when she caught his eye
Ain't no man could fight the feeling
He knew he had to try to let love in
 
Smile to let her know
She was in the mood for talking
So then he began to play the game
Before he knew it
He had told her how much he'd been hurting
How he was hoping she was not the same

Could you be
The kind of lady that I'm seeking?
After all of this time
Could this be true love?
And she said, Boy you don't have to look no more
I'll give the love you need 'til you holler enough, guaranteed
Not like the rest, boy, I'm a kind lady
You've been hurt but be sure boy I am the cure
And when you wake up late thinking it's a dream
Just touch me boy you know, you can count on me
Believe me

Baby
This lady
You know what you've found in me
Is a lady
Kind o'lady
That can give you what you need
Baby
A kind lady
That will never leave you lonely and
Just maybe
This lady
Finally you've found me, oh
Kind lady

LGT: 7   6
STD: 8   7
HVY: 8   8

Heavy Notes: Well, this song is hard on all difficulties, so knowing the 
 notes here can pretty much help you across the board.  First, ouch.  There 
 are a lot of short streams, some that follow the music, others that don't.  
 There are a few points in the song that throw doubles in the streams, but 
 they aren't too frequent.  However, there are a LOT of turning spots here.  
 In some cases, you're better off stepping two arrows with one foot as 
 opposed to just turning.  This one's a big stamina drainer.

Lyrics:

Oooo, la senorita! (repeated)

Wanna kiss you all over (repeated)

Sitting in the corner with a coffee cup
Reading the newspaper, not looking up
She smiles as she finds something funny there,
The sunlight shining in her hair

You know she has a mind, she has an attitude
And she likes her space and her solitude
She'll tease you or please you, if she's feeling good
Or burn you like you knew she would

 if you want to practice these techniques, here's the place.

Lyrics:

Turn me on
Let's see who's better (let's see)
If you wanna play a tune
I wanna groove with you
So turn me on

Hey yo, I'm like this, so watch the moves that I make
How I take over the floor, throw the grooves that I shake
I'm number one, how'd you figure that I'm losing my place
If you're the joker, player, then who's the ace
Hey, yo, it's me, the player to beat, I'm playin' for keeps
I got some special moves, so homey don't sleep
You learn and I teach controllin' the game
You can brag all you want, but you kids don't be rollin' the same
I'm bringin' the pain...

The game is done, you might as well run
My time is come and I'm gonna shine like the sun
No surprise, I'll bust a flip on you guys
The dance moves I do, I'm keepin' it live
Keepin' the vibe, fly-guy style express
Competition is none, player, and I jam like death
I'm the best, can't be beat, you know it's me, keep up the pace
and you'll advance with me, c'mon

Let's see who's better
You wanna play a tune
I wanna groove with you
So turn me on

 delayed slightly.  Beyond that, the streams are pretty simple.  Few turns, 
 so this should be an easy song to pick up, in theory.

Lyrics:

I think you love me
Because your eyes, they tell me so
Cause every time I look
They burst on fire

My friends think I'm crazy
For wanting you so much
But I don't really care when it comes to us

I just want to work it out
Even if it's gonna take all night
All I want is to be with you
Every morning noon and night
A-just with you

So let's talk it over
Communication's so much better
For you and me
You gotta come on over
Cause I just want to make things better
For you and me

Heavy Notes: This isn't too hard at all.  Really, it could be seen as just an 
 excuse to throw freeze arrows into LTTS.  Anyway, there's very little 
 turning, streams are quite simple, and there's no chaos whatsoever.  Should 
 be a relatively easy seven-footer to AA.

Lyrics:

S.O.T.A.

Feeling sad and lonely
Cause I can't find you
Call your telephone
And there's never no answer
Said you love me
Kissed me
We were in heaven
Said I'm sorry
Love you, want you forever

Every night I look at the sky
Call your name
And wonder where you are
Every night I look at the sky
Baby, miss you
Won't you come back

S.O.T.A.

 little bit of chaos.

Lyrics:

Neon signs were shining bright
And in the street lights you turned away
I saw your shadow was fading away
Well, I lost you all of a sudden

Good-bye my love, I love you too so
Before you went away, I didn't know
Memories awake, only in my dream
When I think I lost them, they all come back to me

You said that you love me
Looked at me softly
You kissed me and held me all night so tight
I know what you're feeling
I know what you're dreaming
All that you feel and everything in your mind

The memories are so clear
So many good years 
Sweet ones I hold dear
Can't hold back the tears
I need you by my side
These feelings I can't hide
So don't walk away, boy
Baby won't you bring back

Love me...

 little turning, and in between, you'll have a little bit of chaos as you 
 match Jonny's lyrics.

Lyrics: 

Jazz

Jazz

When I step onto the dance floor
I gotta pause and thank the Lord
Thank him for the gifts he gave me
An addiction to the rhythm and jammin' feet
Anytime that I hear the jazz play
I gotta tell them half-steppers "Get out my way"
Trix are for kids and I'm playin' for keeps
I can buy you and sell you, you can keep the receipt
'Cause can't nobody move the crowd the way I do
I feel for any fool that might try to
Heard the boom boom baby girl never you fear
I'm Jonny Dynamite let 'em know I'm up in here
The jazz is on the one, and the music's bumpin'
DJ's got the whole crowd jumpin'
Door to door we go for yours
All we want is more, more jazz

(Can y'all handle more jazz?
Yeah all we want is more jazz
Feel me
Break it down for me now, yo)

Aight now, swing it
Like they used to do
Put the house beat to it and before I'm through
You might learn a thing or two you can show your peeps
And you can catch me on Soul Train late next week
Don't you know I'm all that and a bucket of wings?
I'm on the jazz, when I feel the need to shake my groove thing
When you see me comin' sit back, relax
Tell your boys, look out step back
And feel that jazz

(hot, sexual)

(here I come again, here I come again
Yet again... Dynamite's blowin' up the show
Save my soul)

 The steps tend to follow the music, and the streams don't get too long, 
 which it good because they make you turn and crossover something fierce.  
 Also, the end has some freezes mixed in with the streams.

Play Notes: The song begins at 128 bpm.  Then, cuts down to 64 once the 
 rhythm drops, then back to 128.  It goes to 256 for a percussion riff, then 
 comes back to 128 once again for the main melody.

Heavy Notes: Not too bad for a nine-footer.  The transition to 256 should be 
 easy to spot, as it's at the end of a long sixteenth run, so you won't be 
 changing rhythms for those steps.  Beyond that, there are several gallops 
 and chaotic steps, but they'll flow well with the music.

Heavy Notes: First time out, you'll probably have a tough time with this song.  
 Lots of sixteenths are sandwiched into it.  The good news that they either 
 follow the song, or at least flow with the music style.  There aren't any 
 large streams of sixteenths, and there's only a little turning.

 some fiddling around with the Japanese structure) to "The grind heals the

Heavy Notes: Yucky, partially because it's so slow, but mostly because you 
 expect the steps to follow the music, and they don't, all the time.  Look 
 very carefully at the positioning of the arrows, because what you may think 
 is a group of eight sixteenth notes could be two groups of four sixteenth 
 notes separated by an eighth note or something.

I've been waiting a loooooooong time....)

Late at night when you're all alone (all alone)
Heart would say, pick up the phone (pick up the phone)
But he belongs to someone else
You wanna keep his number for yourself
You keep your feelings deep inside (deep inside)
The kind of love that's so hard to find (so hard to find)
Gotta keep it all for myself
Don't wanna share it with somebody else

Nobody knows what goes on when we are all alone
I know what I feel, it's oh so real

We are secret lovers
Hope no one discovers (no one discovers)
See you every day
Secret hideaway
Just around the way (Don't you know....)
Feels so good to me 'cause (...feels so good)
No one's ever seen us
What we have, taboo
A secret rendez-vous

(I'm in love, you feel good to me
Baby don'tcha know I need you
Don'tcha know I need your love so....)

Sneakin' with my baby (come to me baby)
Weekend, don't say maybe (please him day or night)
We throw away the key
It's our fantasy
Only you and me (I know you want me here)
I hope no one discovers
That we are undercover lovers
What we have, taboo
A secret rendez-vous, yeah

(Ohh ohh ohh ohh.....)

STD: 6   5
HVY: 7   7

Heavy Notes: Short streams mostly, but there's quite a bit of turning, and 
 quite a few taps.  This song would be easier if it were slower.  Fast speeds 
 means turns and taps are tough.

Difficulty:

LGT: 3   4

HVY: 7   7

Heavy Notes: Some turns and streams aren't very long.  There are several 
 freeze arrows with eighth note steps sandwiched around them.  There are also 
 a few chaotic steps, such as a few gallops sprinkled here and there, as well 
 as an interesting triplet run near the end.

---

Lyrics:

I wake at night and I start reaching for you
Every single time
I wish you lived a little closer
There's nothing else can make me feel the way you do
And phone calls don't provide
The warm I need when nights are colder

Missing you is more than I can stand
I need you here with me, so baby take my hand

Let's get close again I'm So In Love
You may be far away, but I need you here today now
To hold me.  Boy, I'll never get enough
You're the only one for me.  Come on over and you'll see
You and Me, we are So In Love

Play Notes: It's probably worth mentioning that ALL difficulties have eighth 
 note steps on the record scratches.

Heavy Notes: I love doing this one on Heavy.  It's not all that fast, so 
 you can pick it up pretty well.  There are a few small streams with double 
 steps in the early parts, then the record scratches, then a really large 79 
 step stream in the middle which leads into the second scratch section.  At 
 the end of that section are 18 sixteenth notes sandwiched together (but 
 they're just alternating up and left).  In the last area are some more long 
 streams and three clusters of five sixteenth notes.

Lyrics: 

DDR Bass! (Revolution)
DDR Bass!

DDR Bass! (Revolution)
DDR Bass!

I am here, and my name is Chaos 
Rap is to me like music is to Amadeus 
Wolfgang, the famous composer 
When I stepped in I told him to move over 

I am the new kid on the block 
And the mission - to make your body rock 
And to all the fools that think they're tough 
You'll never beat me, cuz I'm just too rough 

For my nature, my habitat, and even my environment 
Don't try me now, just go into retirement 
And think about what you have done 
You got beat, cuz you tried to move on 

You meet your fate when your lines ain't straight 
They're in your lyrical debatin' when your styles ain't great 
You got boogie-old rhymes to the point of no return 
You switch, you discern, but when will you learn 
That my rhymes burn, my brain waves melt 
Who gives a damn how you fall, overturned black belts 
I show you no remorse, I break off, I get divorced 
Could I be the source of this regenerative force 
Rejuvinated, I escalate it, you're underrated
Now you're underrated cuz your homeboys played it 
Your weak appearances are only doing me the favor 
While I'm kickin' butt and flavor showin' off on your behavior 

Brother be beefing like a source that's protecting all people 
Put your hands up in the pulpit, coz it is drippin' like water 
From a leaky faucet 
Hand me the mic and I would rock it 
To you, sometimes you got to stop it - To make it rhyme 
It will earn full work and yo the final jam 
Is the freakin' bad bone, man take much and stand it 
And, yo, to beat us right now is the chance 
So everybody, yo, get on the floor 
I wanna see your dance

Play Notes: There's a tiny stop just after the verse and before the last 
 chorus.  It lasts about a beat.

Heavy Notes: This is a pretty tough nine-footer.  I base that around the fact 
 that there are plenty of odd steps: triplets, sixteenth gallops, plenty of 
 freezes with steps in them.  The fact that it's pretty fast doesn't help 
 either.

Lyrics:

Let's go!
Ooh...

Magical Love, Magical Kiss!
You've shined a light
On my whole world my friend
Love is in the Air
Beauty's everywhere

Magical Love, Magical Kiss!
You've opened up my heart to love again (ooh)
Never ever go away
Promise you will stay
And feel my life

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

My skies they used to be gray
And I
Never could see the sun above me
Until you appeared (you appeared)
And you brought your joy, peace and happiness

Like a princess (go) 
Revived again (go)
Because of your sacred kiss (yeah)
Hope was gone (go)
You came along (go)
And cast your spell
Cast your spell

Magical Love, Magical Kiss!
You've shined a light
On my whole world my friend (yeah)
Love is in the Air
Beauty's everywhere
The magic of your love lasts forever

Magical Love, Magical Kiss!

Heavy Notes: Smooth sailing for the first half of the song, with small to 
 medium streams and double steps with some turning, which leads into the 
 halfway point, which has triplet steps to match the percussion (and what 
 should be voice), and then one long stream with lots of turns, which shows 
 how this song got its rating...

Song Type: Konami Original
First Appearance: beatmania IIDX

Artist Notes: Toshiyuki Kakuta is L.E.D., a Konami Original artist who does a 
 lot of beatmania. 
Misc. Notes: In the original version, there were some orgasmic female voices 
 over the track.  That didn't sit well with Konami of America at the time, so 
 they decided to remove them for Konamix, and it wasn't changed back for 
 Ultramix.  Also, the original background art had some sketches of (clothed)

Heavy Notes: The slow pace makes the streams pretty easy, even when they get 
 pretty long, but they never get too long.  And, like all UMix originals, they 
 play with the freezes, but not too much.  There are a few sixteenths to 
 contend with, as well.

STD: 7   8
HVY: 8   9

Heavy Notes: Short streams that follow the song, for the most part.  There's 
 some turning to worry about.  The hardest part is probably the end, which is 
 a long stream that requires a lot of turning and/or jumping around.

Genre: Oedo Techno
BPM: 70-165

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 3   4
STD: 6   7
HVY: 9   9

Play Notes: Just before the steps begin is a stop in the music.  Once you 
 get to the end, the music will slow down gradually, so be sure to watch for 
 it.

Heavy Notes: In the beginning, you'll be stepping the strings, then a long 
 freeze, then a whole bunch of gallops.  After the gallops, you'll think you're 
 hitting a gallop, then a double step, but YOU'RE NOT.  What looks like a 
 double step is two THIRTY-SECOND notes, matching up to the music, so stay 
 sharp there.  In the section with background synthesizers, you'll be facing 
 eighths with double steps in the streams, and one long stream that goes more 
 than four measures, and which will require you to turn several times.  After 
 that, more gallops and eighth notes, then, finally, the slowdown, which 
 follows the music exactly.  A good easy-to-moderate nine-footer.

 "ORION.78", and "exotic ethnic".  DE-SIRE is the name Naoki uses for the 
 "TRIP MACHINE" and "Healing Vision" series.

Lyrics:

Feelin' blue
I'm thinking of you
And I was a fool to walk away (walk away)
Tears in my eyes today
Make my world
The color of blue

Red with a twist
Orange of fire
Green of tourmaline
Yellow, mellow, hello, hello
Paint me a smile
I am covered and colored with one, only one

'Cause baby I'm alone
Alone without you
What am I supposed to do?
I'm alone
Alone without you
I'm the color of blue

Feelin' blue
I'm thinking of you
And I was a fool to walk away
Tears in my eyes today

And I was a fool to walk away

Misc. Notes: Yes, in DDR Extreme, there were Challenge steps for this song.

Heavy Notes: A mid-range nine-footer.  There are several streams, a few 
 gallops, and quite a few crossovers.  There are also several double steps in 
 streams.  Also, at the beginning is a double stream, and at the end are a 
 series of triplets closing the song.

==================================
5C. Healing Vision (Angelic mix) =

UNLOCK: Pass Healing Vision on all three difficulties.

Artist: 2MB
Genre: Drum'N'Bass
BPM: 46-196

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 5   5
STD: 7   7
HVY: 9   9

Play Notes: It starts super slow, but goes right to the 196 as soon as you 
 hit the very first step.  You'll continue through most of the song as 
 normal until you reach a very short hold.  Only practice and experience 
 will allow you to pick up where it shows up.  Lastly, it will get very 
 slow for the last couple of notes.

Heavy Notes: To quote ET: "Oouuuuuch".  The high speeds of HV:AM and the 
 long, long streams, with plenty of turns throwing you around the pad make 
 this a song for the ages.  I consider this to be the hardest nine-footer in 
 this mix.  Some won't agree, but who cares.  Oh, note that, while LGT and 
 STD have you going from the hold to a quarter note.  HVY has you going to 
 a pickup eighth note, so you have even less time for that little rest as you 
 enter the 130-step stream straight to the end.

UNLOCK: Either AAA any song on any difficulty or hit ROULETTE, land on the

Artist: Omega
Genre: Hardcore Techno*
BPM: 300

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 6   6
STD: 8   8
HVY:10  10

Play Notes: There is one stop in this song.  You'll land on a freeze arrow 
 and slow down to a stop.  Count to four after you stop and that's when you 
 start back up again.

Standard Notes: It's mostly quarter notes on Standard, except for about 
 three places during the song (two during the first half, one during the 
 end) that are eighth note streams that will hurt your feet.  If it's not 
 quarter notes or streams, then the steps follow the music.  You'll really 
 get to know this song...

Heavy Notes: Ah, the piece de resistance, for this mix, anyway.  You'll 
 actually find that the steps follow the music relatively well, especially 
 at the beginning.  Once you get going, you'll find more and more lengthy 
 streams thrown in (of course, at this speed, seven-note streams are 
 lengthy).  Once you pass the stop, you'll find more streams in odd 
 configurations.  The song actually doesn't require you to turn much at all.  
 So, I guess you've got that going for you.  Just build up your leg stamina 
 as much as you can, try to use as little energy as possible when stepping, 
 and memorize as much of the steps as you can.  It can be done.  It's been 
 done.  It's been AAA'd, for crying out loud, 300 times by one guy...

 clusters of sixteenths following the percussion (even though they're just 
 alternating steps).

Heavy Notes: Contends with HV:AM for the hardest nine-footer.  The problems 
 here aren't really long streams (except for the last one at the end, but 
 it's not nearly as long as HV:AM's), but they're double steps figured into 
 the streams, as well as some awkward stepping rhythms.  Also, when the 
 driving percussion cuts out, you'll find that you won't be facing straight 
 eighth notes, but an almost psuedo-gallop.

Heavy Notes: Well, right away, they start throwing long streams at you, and 
 they won't let up for the remainder of the song.  About the only thing that 
 changes throughout this whole song is that the streams will start requiring 
 you to turn and/or keep one foot on one arrow.  Couple this with the 
 standard PARANOiA tendency to go with weird rhythms, and you'll have a 
 great time...

Lyrics:

Put your faith in me and I'll show ya

You bring the reason to doubt it all

Put your faith in me and I'll show ya
(I just wanna drive you crazy)
You bring the reason to doubt it all

Causin' much mayhem, droppin' drama
Radical rebel with a need to bomb-a
Fake MC dare not hang 'em higher
The mic is mine, time to pay the piper
Crime an' rhyme goin' on as I kick them
You an' the beat hold trait as the victim
Maniac, as I cut the balances
Supreme, with the war and challenges
Graceful

Put your faith-faith-faith-faith...
Put your - Put your faith-faith-faith-faith...

Born an' raised in Chicago, Cook County
Mic is the omen raisin' hell like Damien
Push through your chest like the creature in Alien
Prey, like a phantom on the loose
Hold still while I get the noose
I got your brain in my scope
The plan that I hold is so dope you can't cope
Deadly

Put your faith in me and I'll show ya 
(Listen to my heart, it's cryin' out for...)
You bring the reason to doubt it all

Put your faith in me and I'll show ya
(I just wanna drive you crazy)
You bring the reason to doubt it all

(Give us Naoki!)
Put your faith-faith-faith-faith...

Once you download the song packs (through the "Download Content" option on 
 XBL), these songs will appear on your list in green letters.

=================
6A. SP1 - Abyss =
=================

Artist: dj TAKA
Genre: Intelligence*
BPM: 142

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 2   3
STD: 5   5
HVY: 7   7

Play Notes: About halfway through this song is a stop that lasts two measures.

Heavy Notes: There are plenty of long streams in this song, and there are 
 also lots of gallops, although the gallops are pretty standalone.  Make sure 
 you're watching to see what's a gallop and what's a straight eighth.  There's 
 only one spot that requires turning, and that's a medium-length stream near 
 the end.

Genre: Euro Groove*
BPM: 155

Difficulty: 
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 4   4
STD: 6   6

Heavy Notes: The streams don't get very long, and there's no turning 
 involved.  Probably the only tricky part is the bridge, where the steps 
 follow the synthesizer hits.

Lyrics:

(Look out on the dancefloor)
(It's waiting for you)
It's time to burn

Burn, burn, burn's the fix
And tell me, do you really wanna roll with this
The heat is on, it's time to move
So where you know just what to do
The temperatures rising, no way out
Going too far, can't stop now
So let me know if you feel it, too
When the fire gets inside of you

Where have, you been all of my life
I've been, looking for you
I wanna dance through, dark into the daylight with you
I wanna burn!
Burn, burn burn, the world right
The rhythm's hard to ignore
Set up a big fire
I just don't care anymore!

Let's make it special, on a dance floor
I can read the signs, but I can't use the lore
Let's get it up, 'cause now's the time
I really wanna make you mine tonight 
Let's put in the fight
You and me, on a fantasy
And if you really wanna learn, I'm gonna show you how to burn

Burn, burn, burn, you burn me
You body's talking to mine (you burn me)
Sizzling sensation, our bodies like it in time (oh yeah!)
You know we gonna burn, burn, burn the fire, they don't make it anymore (talk
 to me)
Fire in big waves, yeah. I've got you burning the floor
Burnin' the floor!
Burnin' the floor!

========================================
6C. SP1 - Burning Heat! (3 Option Mix) =
========================================

Artist: Mr. T with Motoaki.F
Genre: 12 Beat* (Konamix)
BPM: 166

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 2   2
STD: 5   6
HVY: 9   9

Play Notes: Two stops here; at the beginning after several steps, and at the 
 end, just before the last two notes.

Heavy Notes: Definitely a hard nine-footer.  First off, there are almost no 
 eighth notes in this song, per se.  Almost every time you see streams, 
 they'll be too off to be eighth notes, but they're not quite gallops, 
 either.  They're actually triplets, with one note in the tri-puh-let series 
 removed.  Also, once the main melody begins, you'll find that the steps 
 follow it very closely, and all the notes are triplets.  It's basically the 
 same throughout the whole song.  If you know how the song sounds, you'll find 
 it easier, but there are still some nasty turns that the song throws at you 
 to keep you honest.

Difficulty:

 up like some of these other freeze-happy songs.  Beyond that, you'll find 
 mostly simple streams.

Difficulty:

LGT: 4   4

Heavy Notes: One pain of a nine-footer.  The streams can get pretty long (up 
 to sixteen notes long), and they'll include turning regularly, including 
 full spins.  Nothing truly special, just a lot of it, and at a fast tempo, 
 too...

6H. SP2 - Midnite Blaze =
=========================

Artist: U1 Jewel Style
Genre: Euro Beat
BPM: 150

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 4   4
STD: 5   5
HVY: 8   8

Heavy Notes: Whenever they play the euro-synth keyboard notes, you'll find 
 yourself stepping to those notes.  The rest is just streams, some pretty 
 long.  There are several points that would suggest you turn, but I don't 
 think you should, because this will put you in a lousy position to tackle 
 the rest of the streams.

Lyrics:

Stole my heart on the dance floor
No way, can't leave no more
What am I supposed to do without you
Make you mine is all I wanna do

Step by step as I approach
I say to myself I need a coach
I know you can read my mind
You're the best that a man can find

I'll be your midnite blaze
Brighter than the moon and stars
Guide you thru the cave of love

I'm gonna dance till the morning
Takes my place to shine the way
When you see the light is not from me
You know it's too late

All nite long you take the lead
Stay with me you're all I need
Please make this moment last
Time is running really fast

Something tells me you must go
Why? I need to know
Do you think we will meet again?
If not my future'll never begin

I'll be your midnite blaze
Brighter than the moon and stars
Guide you thru the cave of love

I'm gonna dance till the morning sunbeam
Takes my place to shine the way
When you see the light is not from me
Told you it's too late

Baby it's too late
Baby it's too late
Baby it's too late

6I. SP2 - OUTER LIMITS =
========================

Artist: L.E.D.-G
Genre: Hardcore Breakbeats*
BPM: 85-342

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 5   5
STD: 7   8
HVY:10  10

Play Notes: It starts out at the 85 bpm, then it jams up to 342.  About 
 halfway through, it slows back down, then speeds back up.

Heavy Notes: Well, what's to say.  It's a ten-footer.  I will say that the 
 streams are pretty easy, compared to MAX 300, but the sheer speed of the 
 song can tire you out quickly.

Heavy Notes: Ugh.  Such a great song, and they give it such whacked-out 
 steps.  You really need to see it to understand it.  I'll just say that there 
 are tons of oddly placed freezes, several sixteenths leading to freezes, and 
 steps that don't follow the melody.

BPM: 93

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 4   4
STD: 5   5

Heavy Notes: This song will play lots of tricks on you with freeze arrows.  
 One of the favorites is two sixteenths into a freeze, then jumping off 
 immediately into two sixteenths.  You'll have to do this song several times 
 to get all the quirks down.

Lyrics:

Analyze...

Analyze...
1998 Autumn
I saw the phantom
It had the venom
Got it from Saturn
This car burns
Then I felt
It was like a miniature sun
Makin' my home melt
I can't describe the pain I felt
So I went face to face
With this gigantic demon
I tried to see him
I tried to hear him
I tried to smell him
The closer I got
The less I could see
Illusions ya see
Breaks make him become reality
Blinded by the coal dust
My ex girl had the
Gold rush
Ya can't trust
So long as you didn't
Go through the flames
With ma man Biff
I've 20 carrots
And donkey went after the carrots
Women be like that sometimes
Going after what they want (Analyze...)
Not what they need (Analyze...)
It's the greed at the root of the tree (Analyze...)
That make the fruit less juicy
The girl has less taste (Analyze)
An' she'll know when she's 15
Keep breakin' barriers
We break barriers
Across water
Like a aircraft carrier

We break barriers
Be full speedorama
To make the beat heavier
Keep breakin' barriers
We break barriers
Across water
Like a aircraft carrier

We break barriers
Be full speedorama
To make the beat heavier

Keep breakin' barriers

Genre: R&B*
BPM: 96

Difficulty:

LGT: 3   3
STD: 5   5

Heavy Notes: Wow.  Lotsa freeze arrows.  Who woulda guessed?  For the most 
 part, you'll find this song follows the lyrics and music with the steps, and 
 that includes sixteenths.  The tricks with freezes aren't as severe, however, 
 as ANALYZE.

Lyrics:

Gimme your love, give it to me
Give me that good love
Baby, gimme your love
I'm the one you should give your love to

Take a look into this bedroom, my love
Can't you clearly see, I'd give you more than time
You call me friend, but you can best believe
I want to reveal, there is more to me
When late at night, you phone, I need, to groan, about someone else
Done you wrong, and left you low

I said, don't worry love (don't you worry, baby)
I'm here, for you (Don't you fret)
But what I'm gonna say is I'm the one you should pursue

Baby, gimme your love, give it to me, give me that good love
Baby, gimme your love, I'm the one you should give your love to
Baby, gimme your love, give me your love, give me your love
Sweet, sweet love
Gimme your love, I'm the one you should give your love to

Why is it you can't see, what is right here, right here in front of you
I'm the one, and this is where you should be
I'm the one you should give your love to

Baby, baby, give me your lovin'
I'm the one who ought to get your good love
Gimme your love, gimme you love
Baby, baby, give me your love

(Give me love)

6N. SP3 - DYNAMITE RAVE =

Artist: NAOKI
Genre: Speed Rave*
BPM: 150

Difficulty: 
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 5   5
STD: 7   6
HVY: 9   8

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

Lyrics:

1, 2, 3, 4
Dynamite Rave!

Come on everybody! 
(go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go)
And get on the floor, yeah

Techno, rave
It's time to make a stand
and pave the way
Some might say
Let it go
Stay with the flow
Stay on beat
Move your feet
On concrete
Or on the dance floor
You want more
Then I'll give you more
If it's too hardcore
Let me know
I'll stop the show
Then bring it back
To be exact
At 12 o'clock
Rock the spot
It's too damn hot
They told me so
Dynamite rave
It's on the down low
Use your inner glow
To make a move
Show and prove
The man with the lisp
Sounds so crisp
When you can see me 
On TV
On the radio
Here me blow

I don't wanna give up
We're gonna have a party
Have a really great time
Yeah Yeah!
Just feel the heat
Listen to the music
and feel that beat

C'mon, get up
C'mon, c'mon
Let me hear ya
Let me hear ya

C'mon, get up
C'mon, c'mon
Let me hear ya
Let me hear ya

Jump jump
Do your thing
This be the bomb
Try to sing
Narrator king
Spread your wings
Make your head ring 
To this song
All night long
Jack your body
To this party
Feel the pain
When you strain
Don't refrain
Please don't stop 
Until you drop

I don't wanna give up
We're gonna have a party
Have a really great time
Yeah Yeah!
Just feel the heat
Listen to the music
and feel that beat, yeah!

BPM: 164

Difficulty:

LGT: 4   4
STD: 6   6
HVY: 7   8

Play Notes: This is a particularly long song (over two minutes), but it's made 
 up for by the fact that you have about fifteen seconds of near dead time 
 (only a freeze or a double step)

Heavy Notes: The first half is particularly difficult, with lots of gallops 
 and sixteenths.  Once you pass the dead time, it's pretty easy, just gallops 
 and streams.

Heavy Notes: Much of the beginning of this song, and some of the end, has 
 you following the rhythm with triplets followed by two eighths.  Near the 
 middle, you'll take on seven-note-long streams, and later the same streams, 
 only with double steps in the beginning of them.  Watch carefully near the 
 end for some lousy off-beats thrown into the streams.

 It somewhat alternates between eighth notes and gallops.  In the middle, 
 you'll find double steps in the streams which can complicate matters.

Heavy Notes: Here's an old favorite.  It's definitely a challenging nine-
 footer if you don't have stamina or the concept of gallops down.  There are a 
 LOT of gallops in this song.  The whole first several measures is all 
 gallops.  Once the music gets going, you have normal streams followed by a 
 couple of gallops, and that goes on for a while.  Once the whistling picks 
 up, then you'll have eight-note streams followed by six-note streams for a 
 long time, then more gallops, then the break (huff, huff), then pretty much 
 gallops followed by a long stream repeatedly for the remainder of the song.

Lyrics: 

par la fenetre de ta fiat 500
tu me regardius et je t'ai vu
tes gout semblanit parfait

on s'est compris tout de suite a fond
et des rendez-vous de la nuit
parfois on s'attend sous la pluie
et tout, c'etait miracle

la musique !
les yeux dans les yeux
nos histoires romantiques
on commence tous les deux

pres de moi?

English Translation:

From the window of your fiat 500
you were looking at me and I saw you
Your taste seems perfect

We understood each other right away completely
and night-time rendez-vous/meets.
Sometimes they wait for each other under the rain
And all of it, it was a miracle.

The music!
gazing into each other's eyes
our romantic stories
It starts with both of us

Close to me...

=========================
6T. SP4 - What is Love? =
=========================

Artist: TOMOSUKE
Genre: House*
BPM: 130

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 3   3
STD: 5   5
HVY: 6   7

Heavy Notes: Quite simple, really.  The hardest part is the sometimes 
 lengthy streams, with no crossovers, and some steps with freezes mixed in.

6U. SP5 - GET IT ALL =
======================

Artist: BRASS TRICKS
Genre: Big Band
BPM: 140

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 4   4
STD: 5   5
HVY: 8   8

Heavy Notes: Kinda painful.  This song likes to follow the mostly 
 unpredictable nature of big band music.  Other times, you'll find double 
 steps in streams, and leading out of freeze arrows.  Of particular note also 
 are double taps on sixteenth notes (which follows the music, so you can see 
 them coming).

Artist: Hiro feat. Sweet little 30's
Genre: Swing
BPM: 63-190

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 4   4
STD: 6   6
HVY: 8   8

Play Notes: About halfway through the second verse, the songs slows down on 
 "Lightning streak!"  At the final chorus, the song slows down again just 
 after "Nobody get in my way!"

Heavy Notes: This song's a swing song, and almost all the steps are triplets.  
 The steps aren't all that difficult, but the fast tempo can trip you up.

---

Lyrics:

I'm a cool cat making waves all over town
When they see me coming everybody's heads turn 'round
With my twin cam, dual exhaust, and my ragtop down

I'm a ladies' man, just a terrible lousy freak
I'll call your daughter, any day of the week
With attention to the chrome, I'm a LIGHTNING STREAK!

Heaven is a '57 metallic gray!
Nobody get in my way!

Heaven is a '57 metallic gray

Heavy Notes: The main feature of this tune are the long streams that carry 
 along with the driving music.  There are also a few gallops, and the end of 
 the song follows the odd beat.

6X. SP5 - KAKUMEI =

Artist: dj TAKA with NAOKI
Genre: Orchestral*
BPM: 148

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 4   3
STD: 6   5
HVY: 9   9

Play Notes: Although I put the tempo as static, it actually slows down at the 
 beginning before getting back up to speed.  The only place this is really an 
 issue is on Heavy.

Heavy Notes: Plenty of gallops that follow the piano hits.  That'd be easy 
 if it weren't for the fact that eighth notes are regularly mixed in with them, 
 making it tough to read.  There are also a few sixteenth clusters thrown in, 
 as well as a long stream shortly after the middle (with gallops thrown in).

Misc. Notes: This song is based off Frederic Chopin's work entitled 
 "Revolutionary Etude", which is his tenth opus, number 12.  Kakumei is taken 
 from the kanji "kaku" and "mei", which together make the word "revolution".
 No, there are no Challenge steps.  Ultramix doesn't have them.

Genre: Hip Hop
BPM: 112

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 3   3
STD: 4   4
HVY: 6   6

Heavy Notes: Difficult for a six-footer.  The streams tend to have double-
 steps in them (common among the later song packs), as well as a few odd 
 gallops.

Lyrics:

So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)
So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)
So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)
So what' the meaning of, meaning of, meaning of life?

Many people living life
Like they just don't know where to go
Ask the mass and get there fast
To be sure you'll reach your goal
Smiling faces, ancient places
All a mountain made to one
In this life you get one show
And your rehearsal's almost done

So what's the meaning of life?
I don't know, whatcha think about it
I try hard to contemplate the revelations
Hard times persist
While the rich are getting richer
He has got your game
Till the time to pay the fiddler

Pick up the revolution
Where we last left off
Armageddon, it is written
So you know who lost

Enemies, trippin' thieves
Try to steal the night
All the while, keep your smile
Don't give up the fight

(Live life slow)
Live it one day at a time
(It's your show)
It's your show
(Take your time)
Take your time and do it right
(Keep your smile)
Ah-ha-ha-ha

Many people living life
Like they just don't know where to go
Ask the mass and get there fast
To be sure you'll reach your goal
Smiling faces, ancient places
All a mountain made to one
In this life you get one show
And your rehearsal's almost done

So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)
So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)
Dig deep
So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)
Dig deep
So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)
So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)
So what's the meaning of life?
(I don't know, whatcha think about it)

So you wanna be the king, huh

BPM: 160

Difficulty:
    Sgl Dbl
LGT: 4   4
STD: 5   6
HVY: 9   9

Heavy Notes: There are a lot of notes in this relatively long song.  You'll 
 start with some sixteenths thrown in, but that's just the beginning.  Once 
 you reach the lyrics, you'll find long streams with turns, and streams with 
 doubles thrown in.  Nothing more difficult than that, but there are a lot 
 of them.

---

Lyrics:

You've broken my heart

Boy, you've torn my live apart
Oh, right from the very start
Now, I've got to get this guy out of my head
Before I lose control, you were
The only, man to feel my love (feel my love)
Now, it's changed, and you know
That you cut me like a knife

You've broken my heart (broken my heart)
This can't be right (no, no, not right)
I'm teling you I know it's true,
That I'd die for you (die for you)
Baby, broken my heart..

Oh, no, no (oh no)

Baby, you were everything (everything)
Now you say it's over,
I know - that you won't be coming back

You've broken my heart
Torn me apart
It can't be right
Maybe I was wrong to see
The evil in you (evil in you)

Broken my heart (broken my heart)
Right from the start (yeah, from the start)
I just can't believe it's true
You throw me away (throw me away)
Baby, broke my heart..

Heavy Notes: Streams don't involve turning, but have double steps in them, and

 double steps).

******************************************************************************
8. OTHER MODES
******************************************************************************

Here are the other modes besides the standard Game Mode and Challenge Mode.

=================
8A. Battle Mode =
=================

This mode is similar to Game Mode, only you can only play Single, and grades 
will not be recorded.  However, you can have as many as four people playing.

There are two types of play in Battle Mode:

Score Battle - Play as you normally would in Game Mode.  The person with the 
 highest score wins.

Point Battle - This mode is only for two players.  Each player begins with 
 sixteen points.  Whenever a player registers a worse step than the other 
 player (for instance, Player 1 hits a step at PERFECT! and Player 2 at 
 GREAT) the lower stepping player loses a point.  When one player loses all 
 his points, the game's over.  If both players make it to the end of the song, 
 then the person with more points remaining is the winner.

==================
8B. Workout Mode =
==================

This mode allows you to observe the calories melting away as you dance.

---

Workout Setting

Weight: Set this and the amount of calories burned will be slightly changed 
 to reflect your weight.

Menu: Set to "Play Time" to play a specific amount of time.  Set to "Calories 
 Burned" and you'll play until you reach that number of calories.  "No 
 Setting" will let you have no restrictions.

Goal: Set to minutes if "Play Time" is on Menu, and to a calorie amount if 
 "Calories Burned is on Menu.

Workout Step: With one star, you'll have a very easy mode.  With two stars, 
 the steps will be "Little".  With three stars, you'll play the songs as 
 normal.

---

Workout Results

After every song, you'll see a Workout Results screen where you can see your 
calorie-related results.  Press Start to see them charted in relation to 
other day's workouts.

===================
8C. Training Mode =
===================

Select this to pick songs and tackle them on your own terms.  You may select 
the song, the mode (Single, Versus, Double), its difficulty, any song options 
you want (as detailed in the How To Dance section far above), and you may put 
in any Edit Data you wish.

In addition (unlike other modes of gameplay), you can set Assist, which 
allows you to play with any combination of the music, a metronome (which 
marks standard quarter note beats), and a handclap (which claps whenever 
there's an arrow).

Also, you can set the song's speed.  Unlike the song option called Speed, 
this actually changes how fast the song goes.  It's good for taking fast 
songs at speeds you can manage.

Finally, you can set what measure the song begins and ends.  The "Start" 
function below it will allow you to quickly change between the measures you 
select and the whole song.

===============
8D. Edit Mode =
===============

Well, I'm not gonna go through all the possibilities that Edit Mode offers 
here.  Honestly, if you're serious about Editing, you'll probably know to 
read the instructions on this one.  Seriously, there's too much info about it 
for me to justify making a section for it.

what game you're asking about.
- Asking how to beat a song will result in a deletion.  There really are no
