eurobeat • ユーロビート

A music style characterized by fast beats per minute, heavy synthesizers, occasional guitars, and dramatic vocals. Originally spawned off of Italo disco with a handful of Italian labels pioneering the genre; now an international cult sensation, with the majority of it's creators releasing songs primarily in Japan.

In the west the style is mainly known via Dance Dance Revolution and other rhythm games, as well as the Initial D animation; both which showcase a wide variety of artists.

Avex Trax holds the longest running anthology of eurobeat, with its Super Eurobeat (SEB) series. Vocaloid, Touhou, and even automobile franchises have all sprouted their very own spin of Eurobeat, eg. Toho Eurobeat (TEB).

Often compared to Pop, Electronic Dance Music, House, Dubstep, and R&B; due to the ambiguous and niche nature of the genre, it's hard to pinpoint and classify it, making it one the most versatile musical styles in the world.

The dancing style Para Para is often associated with Eurobeat.
To date, eurobeat is exclusively sold in Japan.

A good type of music for the game Dance Dance Revolution!
Upside down
If you fall into the ground
Coo Coo is the movie
Coo Coo is the city
Upside down
Now we are running all around
Coo Coo, are you dancing?
Coo Coo, are you feeling?
Picking up together
Growing up your fever
So you're never feeling blue
Oh, come and get it, baby
Hear the people saying
Everybody take your hand

Rolling on the ceiling
Rolling by your feelings
Rolling on the ceiling again
Oh, Juju told me Clover, he could be your lover
All this thought for losing your head
Oh, I want to see your body tossing again
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah......

Upside down
You are walking through the town
Coo Coo is the movie
Coo Coo is the city
Upside down
Now we are running all around
Coo Coo, are you dancing?
Coo Coo, are you feeling?

Like a lovely lady
I'm a wee bit crazy
I am never feeling blue
Oh, come and get it, baby
Hear the people saying
Everybody take your hand
