    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I. Really, really basic introduction

    Left, right, left, right, hit both pads at once. Welcome to the world of Dance
    Dance Revolution. For the duration of the game, you are a dancer. You will be
    performing for a live audience within the game, and some spectators waiting for
    their turn to show off their moves. There will also be a very annoying MC who
    will make some extremely dimwitted comments. Now, onto the basics...

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    II. Version info...I think

    1.0-While this FAQ has been around much longer than the date of this version
    (started 1/26/00), I needed to make some MAJOR changes to certain vital parts
    of this FAQ (like the songs section). Finally got around to releasing it.
    (3/15/00)

    1.1-Oops, forgot my e-mail address (cherriebomber@yahoo.com). Updated songs
    section and streak. Ah, well. (3/16/00)

    1.2-Someone brought a Playstation, a Dance Pad, and a copy of Dance Dance
    Revolution-2nd Mix to a nice little party. I will include strategies to what
    songs I remember seeing. Uptated song and streak section. . .again. (3/19/00)

    1.3-After reviewing the previous version, I found a HUGE error. I forgot to
    fill in my thought for the Playstation cheat! Note to self: Don't use Save As
    command unless absolutely necessary. Did a bit of tweaking (Commandments,
    songs, streak), and added the quotes in the beginning. (3/20/00)

    1.35-Not a real update (well, at least not the one I was planning for). Put in
    a note about injuries. After all, it's hard to dance when. . .read for
    yourself. I stuck it in the Commandments section (geez, the number of
    commandments just keeps rising). (3/28/00)

    1.4-Sheesh. . .trying to copy text off an e-mail is a major pain in the rear.
    Fortunately, Nickel's e-mail (deloura@halcycon.net) wasn't ridiculously long.
    He gave me advice on just about everything. Someone was nice enough to sell me
    a CD containing the songs from Dance Dance Revolution: 3rd Mix Nonstop Megamix,
    so I've just included the few titles I could decipher from that. Feel free to
    add or correct me if I'm wrong. Updated the Commandments section. . .again.
    (3/29/00)

    1.41-The only reason why I'm commenting on such a minor update is because I got
    a 44 streak for Trip Machine Trick Mode. You'll see why this is important in
    the streak section. This not an April Fool's joke! (4/1/00)

    1.47-Added a new section. I hope you like it! Also added another commandment.
    Did some Nonstop nonsense. About the e-mails: I may not be able to get back
    to you for a few days, especially if you mail me on a Friday. Sorry! (4/6/00)

    1.5-One of my friends happens to have the legal copy of Dance Dance Revolution:
    3rd Mix Nonstop Megamix, so I bummed off some song titles and groups from him.
    Since he also has a copy of the lyrics, I'll be using what I remember to screen
    the songs (geez. . .a group called E-rotic. . .wonder what kind of music they
    play). In the credits section, I credit two people because someone borrowed
    the CD from someone, and I don't know who did what. Added some tempos. I'm
    adding the tempos to give you, the reader, an idea on just how much difference
    there is between songs like My Fire and Butterfly. This is for those who want
    to try a more difficult song with a similar tempo. It's easier to make the
    transition from Boom Boom Dollar to Brilliant 2 U than from Make It Better to
    Paranoia. Are your eyes tired yet? (4/9/00)

    1.6-Oops, forgot to change the version number! Since that nice friend of mine
    was nice enough to let me see the song titles, groups, and lyrics, I was able
    to update a good portion of the 3rd Mix section. Sorry, but I haven't danced
    since the last update :(. (4/10/00)

    1.7-Hi, good to see you all back again. My life, being dormant for a while,
    woke up all of a sudden. Now that I have a bit more time, I can fix a really
    major error. Skywalker (one of my friends) told me that the Nonstop Megamix is
    a combination of two different mixes, and that IT'S FOR LISTENING PLEASURE
    ONLY!!! Therefore, I will take the ratings off some of the songs in that
    section. Meanwhile, Jonath8436@aol.com gave me a few ULTIMATE streaks (some
    which I never would have gotten on my own). Updated the strategy,
    Commandments, both streak sections, and the credits. (5/4/00)

    1.8-I wish I could access the Internet on my personal computer. Since I can't,
    I haven't been able to update for a LONG time (there is a use for school). Now
    I'm dancing in Maniac Mode. I've updated the songs section (that section that
    I have been neglecting). Added a few more general rules, a.k.a. commandment,
    and updated my personal streak section (laugh away, experts). (7/26/00)

    1.81-Deathlok the Demolisher was, ahem, nice enough to point out some lyrical
    errors. Props to him!! (9/2000)

    1.9-Dance Dance Revolution USA has hit our shores!!! I'll try my best to put
    everything I know about this song into this FAQ!!! This means an update in the
    song list section and songs strategy sections (and maybe, just maybe, something
    more in the introduction!!!) BTW, I never got around to releasing this
    version. (11/12/00)

    2.0-Added a lot of tidbits to just about every song. Check it out! Still
    writing strategy (this may take a long time. . .) WARNING: THIS VERSION WILL
    LOOK VERY STRANGE. OH, WELL!! (11/19/00)

    2.1-More DDR USA stuff-including Flat Mode, a few more strategies, and various
    streaks (and one mynah bird in one papaya tree!). (12/8/00)

    2.11-I want my brain back NOW!! Forgot to change version number. . .added a
    bit more info (guess where). (12/13/00)

    2.2-Mele Kalikimaka!! Did some corrections (what was a Marvelous song doing in
    the Superior section?). Again added info in the usual areas, and put in an
    IMPORTANT note about cheats. More scenery added, too. (12/22/00)

    2.3-After all sorts of nasty things from school have been somewhat resolved, I
    have time to update (sort of). Added quite a bit of stuff (next section,
    commandments, song info, streaks, and cheats, of all places). (1/12/01)

    2.4-Another update. . .almost. This time, double ratings (only ratings) were
    added. Ugh. Driver's ed is doing bad things to me schedules! For the very
    first time. . .I shall be participating in a tournament. Check out the credits
    section for more info. (3/5/01)

    2.41-Highly minor, but still warrants another update. While surfing the web, I
    found something very interesting. It's in the credits section. Oh, yes, and
    this FAQ can now be viewed at neoseeker.com. Excuse me while I recover from my
    second cold in as many months. (3/10/01)

    2.5-Man, that tournament gave me a lot of info! My results are in the credits
    section. . .look if you dare (but I didn't win first. . .sorry!). So many AAA
    grades! Most were on Beginner mode. Anyway, song section, and various streaks
    updated!! (4/8/01)

    2.6-Back from Narshe. . .anyway, to honor the fact that DDR 4th Mix is out in
    arcades (well, at least in my area), I shall enter in the 4th Mix info for
    Playstation (and we can all thank Growlie for that). Unfortunately, I was
    sick, so I got to see 4th Mix for arcades for about two weeks. So a few
    reviews are stuck in. Missing a couple songs for 4th Mix arcade. . .but
    otherwise done with that song list (compile type: One Day Tourney Jam!). Added
    a section on stuff NOT to do. Oh, yes, and I finally passed all the
    Catastrophic songs in DDR USA. On to End of the Century! And Alex was nice
    enough to explain the 3rd Mix and 4th Mix system to me (it made perfect sense).
    Also redid the top part and the copyright (um, please read). P.S. Happy
    Belated Birthday Growlie!! (6/27/01)

    2.7-Mucho stuff added, in terms of 4th and 5th Mix songs. What? 5th Mix?
    Yep, I got to play it. Song list and strategy will now reflect it. So will a
    couple of my streaks. Not released.

    2.8-Just when I thought everything was okay. . .DDR 4th Mix Plus comes to my
    arcade. I'm gonna be busy. . .lots of stuff added, so check it out!! Slight
    format changes as well. One "minor" thing changed. . .it's in the glossary
    (those at the gamefaqs.com board. . .you win). (3/8/02)

    2.9-AACK!! My arcade received 6th Mix and replaced it with 7th Mix two months
    later!! I'm up to my ears in updates!! This is really, really incomplete, but
    I'm gonna have to update NOW. Follow-up coming very, very soon! Happy belated
    birthday to me!! (8/13/02)

    3.0-I can't get the info for EXTREME for a LONG time (say, three months).
    Until then, I'll be updating the individual song strategies (this is going to
    take the better part of a year). I'll also be noting which songs go on which
    course (within the individual song strategies). Half of MAX is done, and some
    of MAX2 is also done (but I'm far from finished). Fixed some errors. Wiped
    out three sections. . .not that they'll be missed. . . (3/20/03)

    3.05-Well, I was bored. I played eight rounds of DDR yesterday, and I had a
    lot to talk about. Finished the MAX song list. Still working on individual
    song strategies (ever snow fans, your wish has come true). Added search
    strings as well (for those who are in a hurry). (3/23/02)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    III. I'm supposed to play this game with my WHAT?

    Welcome, O Newbie Dancer. If you know the answer to the question above, skip
    this section. For those of you who don't know. . .you play this game with your
    feet. There's no joystick. At the beginning of every song, you will notice
    four arrows at the top of the screen. Arrows will be rising from the bottom of
    the screen. As soon as they match up to one of the arrows on the top of the
    screen (the gray ones), step on the appropriate direction pad. There will be
    times when two arrows will need to be stepped on. Jump on both correct pads.
    For the more difficult songs, you will be stepping on the arrows between beats.

    When you sucessfully step on four or more arrows correctly (get a Perfect!!! or
    Great!! message), a Combo will start. The more arrows you combo, the more
    points you'll get, and the higher your overall grade will be. Above the arrows
    is a gauge. To clear a round, there must be at least one bar left in that
    gauge. Miss the arrows repeatedly, and your gauge will decrease. A "DANGER"
    message will flash across the screen. You know you have utterly failed when
    the background turns orange, and stays that way. Don't be embarassed; try
    again when you feel rested. Regardless of whether you pass or fail a round,
    you will be graded. The grade ranges from from SS (meaning that we all bow
    down to you...for now) to E (meaning that there is room for improvement,
    because you'll only see this rating when you fail a stage).

    The messages in Dance Dance Revolution USA (or whatever it's called elsewhere)
    are almost the same. The "Perfect", "Great", and "Good" messages remain.
    "Almost" replaces "Boo!", and "Boo" replaces "Miss" (which means "Almost" is in
    purple and "Boo" is in red). This time around, it's fairly easy to get an A.
    I've also managed to get an AAA-with nothing by "Perfect" and "Great" messages
    (and a really long streak). Do mediocre on a song (don't streak too much) and
    you'll get a B. If you somehow manage to get nothing but "Great" and "Good"
    (and don't streak that much) messages, you'll probably get a C. Get nothing
    but "Good" messages (well, a lot) and keep your streak to below 5, and you'll
    probably end up with a D. Fail a stage completely and you'll receive an E.
    There is another downside to failing. You stop earning points the instant you
    fail (junk, isn't it?).

    If you somehow make it through all three stages, you'll see your score and a
    nice long string of numbers below it. To brag to the world, follow the
    on-screen instructions (don't bother with the prize, because the high score at
    last check was 98 million). The machine will also keep high scores (only the
    top 5, and it's really hard to get in!!). If you do manage to get in, watch
    the scrolling letters. Press the left arrow when you want to stop the leftmost
    letter, the down arrow to stop the middle letter, and the up arrow to stop the
    right letter. The right arrow is just to slow the scrolling letters down.
    Press the start button to end it all, or just wait for the timer to stop.

    Thank Alex154527 for the next two sections of info (it's pretty much him
    speaking, with a few comments by me). 3rd Mix is harder than 2nd Mix.
    Consider it the Japanese version of DDR USA. . .except that there is a mode
    where you can't fail. In the DDR USA version, it IS possible to fail Beginner.
    Difficulties on 3rd Mix are Soft, Medium, and SSR. In Soft, all songs are 3
    feet or less. But there is a Trick Mode within which makes the songs 3 or 4 (?)
    (maybe 5 max) feet. In Medium, songs are 1 to 5 feet. In the trick mode within
    that, songs are, I believe, 5 to 7 feet. Then there is the SSR mode, where all
    songs are 7 to 9 feet. 3rd Mix also is very strict about letting you pass
    songs. It takes like 3 bars per miss on the last stage! Plus, it is HARD to get
    an A. One or two mistakes max. B is several mistakes, C is a step below, D is
    near-fail, E is fail. Plus the announcer is MEAN!!! He says, "You need to push
    yourself harder" when you get a B! Now compare him to the nice, nice DDR USA
    announcer. . .

    Now for my 4th mix info. . . When ya start playing, you choose the mode
    (single, versus, double), then the set of songs you want to play (they are
    sorted into groups, and you cannot change the group when you start playing.
    However, there is an All Music mode on 4th mix PLUS that lets you access every
    song). Each set has its own characters (for example, the Pops, Side A features
    Rage and Emi). There is a roulette of them if you choose All Music. Anyway,
    after that, you choose your song. Your difficulty is chosen after the song, but
    it lists the number of feet (in yellow, red, and green all seperately) at the
    top. Of course, this game uses Basic/Trick/Maniac difficulty, according to the
    color of the feet. There is a DDR USA-style dance meter, and combo numbers that
    are also like DDR USA. The only things that arent are the stage number and the
    score counter. Plus, the grading is different. An AA is completely perfect. An
    A is all perfect/great. B is great, C is decent, and you have to screw up a lot
    to get a D. An E of course is a fail. Wait. . .me again. . .those that I saw
    failing got a D! Considering the fact that it's possible to regain meter, I
    don't think there is an E grade in 4th Mix.

    A few more interesting things I found out. . .in Versus Mode, it is possible to
    regain your meter. I do this ALL the time in Ninzaburo. The first stage is
    the easiest to pass. Some songs are more forgiving than others. Gradiusic
    Cyber is the ONLY Catastrophic I know of where I can get 21 Boo! judgements and
    17 Miss. . . judgements and still pass. Oh, Battle? Arrows start from the
    center. Each side has a different color (blue for 1P and red for 2P). The
    arrows migrate over to the appropriate side about two beats before they should
    be stepped on. Green arrows are arrows that both players must step on. Good
    luck!

    Now 5th Mix. . .first, choose whether you want to dance to Single (one credit),
    Versus or Double (two credits for these modes). Now pick a character. The
    characters have been reduced to eye candy again. . .anyway, once you choose
    someone, the song select screen will come up. Select song and difficulty, and
    dance your heart out! The meter is very different from any other mix; it's a
    blue bar that will occasionally turn orange. To get the latter color, that
    meter needs to be full. Note that it's impossible to get the orange meter if
    you're playing Versus and your partner is failing. If you lose everything in
    that meter, it's Game Over (on Single or Double). If your meter disappears on
    Versus, it is again possible to regain meter. If both players fail, the
    machine will slam you. Bummer. Once again, the grading system has been
    tweaked. AAA is supposed to appear if a song is passed with ALL Perfect!!
    judgements. To achieve an AA, full combo the song (nothing but Perfect!! and
    Great! judgements). To get an A, either get two AA judgements and one B, or
    get ONE Good judgement. To get a B, do fairly well on a song (get some Good,
    Boo, and Miss judgements). To get a C, do a bit worse. To get a D, keep
    yourself in the danger zone for most of the song. To get an E, fail the song.
    5th Mix also changed the scoring. . .sort of. Bonus points are given based on
    the number of Perfects you've managed to get. These will show up after you've
    passed a song. Sweet!!! There are hidden songs (9, to be exact) that are not
    time-released. To get them, go to bemanix.com, and read, then urge whoever
    runs your arcade to do it. You'll also get two hidden characters (ugh. . .).
    Wait, wait, wait, one more thing. DDR 5th Mix contains two endings. To see
    the hidden one, get a final grade of A or higher. I've pulled it off. So can
    you!!

    Along came 6th Mix. . .like 5th Mix, it's possible to display the list in a
    variety of ways, the meter looks like a squiggly line, the machine slams all
    failures, it's possible to regain meter after failing in a versus game, and the
    letter grade is determined by Perfect percentage. As for the differences. .
    .first off, the modes have been renamed to Light (yellow), Standard (red), and
    Heavy (green). The foot rating system is gone. It has been replaced by an
    awful-looking graph somewhere near the bottom left corner. The graph is
    supposed to measure the Stream, Chaos, Freeze, Air, and Voltage of a song.
    Think of Stream as the amount of arrows on the screen at any given time. Chaos
    is Konami's way of saying rhythm. The higher the Freeze part, the more freeze
    arrows there are in the song. The Air part of the graph shows how many double
    steps a song has (side note: the kanji below the word Air translates to jump
    something. See, I was right!). Voltage is how tired the player should feel
    after the song
    is over. The graph overall is more or less accurate on everything except for
    Voltage (as this one is determined by personal taste). Oh, the freeze arrow.
    I knew I should have mentioned this earlier. These little green arrows require
    the unlucky person who gets them to step on the arrow and KEEP THEIR WEIGHT ON
    THE PAD. Depending on the machine, this can be anywhere from a piece of cake
    to a nightmare. I'll go more into detail about freeze arrows in the next two
    sections. After a song is cleared, the usual numbers and grades will appear. .
    .along with a bar graph. This shows the player how he/she measured up to the
    graph in the lower left corner (that silly-looking star thingy on the Song
    Select screen). I have no clue as to how the machine measures Voltage. It
    seems the letter grades were changed (or I am very, very confused. . .probably
    both). AAA constitute nothing but Perfect!! judgements. AA requires 93%
    Perfect!! judgements, and not necessarily a full combo. If someone pulls of
    the AA on a Heavy song on their final stage, something happens. . .be prepared.
    A requires something like 80% Perfect!! judgements (not sure 'bout the exact
    percentages). The other letter grades (B, C, and D) have varying Perfect!!
    percentages. E indicates a failure, no matter the Perfect!! percentage. The
    characters are more or less gone in 6th Mix. . .drat. They do appear in some
    of the songs (and the CG videos are neat!). Most of the exclusive songs on the
    home versions of 4th Mix and 5th Mix are on this mix.

    Then came 7th Mix. The interface is the same (including the
    AA-on-Heavy-on-final-stage deal), but Konami brought back the foot rating
    system. Unfortunately, most of the 6th/7th songs are severely underrated (Waka
    Laka is NOT an Exorbitant song!). Some of the older songs got a rating change
    as well (Burnin' the Floor Heavy is a 9?! I don't think so!). The machine
    comes with a point system and 30 empty spots. Each of the points represents
    one passed song. Whenever a song is passed on Single, one point is subtracted.
    Whenever a song is passed on Versus or Double, two points are subtracted.
    Getting a grade of AAA multiplies however many points should be knocked off the
    machine (because the song was passed) by 10. . .with the exception of Versus
    mode. If one player manages a AAA and the other player gets any passing grade,
    the machine subtracts 11 points. If they both pull it off, it's 20 points.
    A grade of D or E means no points (er, unlock points) for that song. . .unless
    we're talkin' Versus, again. If one player gets one of the aforementionted
    grades on the song, that person gets no
    points, and the other player gets however many points they're entitled to.
    Whenever the points hit 0, a spot is revealed. Odd spots hold songs. Even
    spots hold Oni courses.

    Oh, the Oni courses. When asked to choose a difficulty, go beyond the Heavy
    setting. There will be a very, ah, nice picture of Devil-Zukin, and the
    announcer will say, "This mode is challenging!" Those poor souls that pick
    this mode are in for the ultimate combo attack. First off, choose a course.
    Some of the ratings will be in blue. Those are the Oni edits, and most of them
    aren't combo-friendly! The select music is awful, so select your mode of
    death, I mean, your course in the shortest amount of time possible. The
    squiggly meter will be replaced by a battery with three segments. Break a
    combo or miss a freeze, and one of the segments goes bye-bye. The fourth such
    blunder and the course is over. It's possible to regain that battery, though.
    MOST Standard songs and Paranoia on Kidou yield one bar when passed, Heavy/Oni
    songs yield two, and certain songs on certain courses (like D2R on Kidou) yield
    three. Why? Probably because the next song will kill you. If you get no bars
    back. . .pray. A lot.

    Although it's a bit early, I recommend dancing to something like Boom Boom
    Dollar with a friend (Dance Dance Revolution people) or Silent Hill on Beginner
    (DDR USA people). Not all Beginner songs are equal. I DO NOT recommend
    dancing to Afronova on Beginner.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    IV. Music terms and other terms

    Since this game deals with music, I will be spewing out quite a bit of musical
    terms, as well as a few of my own made-up ones (for the arrows). To help sort
    out the confusion, this section will deal primarily with various words and
    phrases that will appear in Section VI. For this, I am assuming that you know
    NOTHING about music. If you already know some of these terms, don't feel
    insulted.

    DOWN BEAT/UP BEAT-To figure out what this means, tap your foot in time to AM-3P
    or Butterfly. You'll notice that you foot hits the ground with the beat.
    There will also be times when your foot is in the air. The time when your foot
    hits the ground is called the down beat. When your foot is in the air, it's
    called the up beat (I may refer to an up beat as an eighth note).

    MEASURE-In all the songs (with the exception of Paranoia and maybe Brilliant 2
    U), four beats. The exception songs are two beats per measure.

    SIXTEENTH NOTE-I know you're trying to dance, but I can't think of any other
    way to express this. Divide every beat into four parts (yes, this will be
    fast). Each part is a sixteenth note.

    TRIPLET-For every beat, cram in three even notes. Not featured in any songs.

    QUARTER NOTE TRIPLET-For every two beats, step three times evenly. I'll
    mention the songs that have this weird rhythm.

    HALF NOTE TRIPLET-For every four beats, sluggishly stomp three times evenly.
    If you can do this, congratulations. You'll notice that the stomps will have
    an interval longer than one beat. Will only appear in the Make It Better
    series.

    PAD-Now, now, let's all be mature. This refers to the pink/blue arrow you step
    on whenever an arrow scrolls up on the screen.

    DOUBLE STEP-Press up on the joystick twice. Only kidding. Jump on two pads at
    once.

    VERSE/CHORUS-The easiest way to illustrate these terms is to use Boom Boom
    Dollar. In this case, the verse starts after the music starts. The chours
    starts when the artist starts singing the title of the selection. This may not
    be true for all songs.

    FOOT ROLL-Imagine, for a moment, five arrows. They can be in any two
    directions (I'll use up and down for this example). Now arrange it so that the
    first arrow is in Direction 1 (in my case, up), the second arrow is one-fourth
    of a beat after arrow 1 and is in Direction 2. Put the third arrow one-fourth
    of a beat after arrow 2 in Direction 1. Put the fourth arrow one-foruth of a
    beat after arrow 3 in Direction 2. Put the fifth arrow one-fourth of a beat
    after arrow 4 in Direction 1. So you'll end up with a count of 1 ^ * ^ 2
    (numbers being the beats, * being the up-beat, and ^ being somewhere
    in-between) with arrows alternating directions. Foot rolls don't necessarily
    have to be five arrows long; they can be anywhere from three arrows to four
    measure's worth (but are usually between five and seven arrows long).

    FREEZE ARROW (6th and up)-It's silly. It's annoying. It takes off a huge
    chunk of meter if it's not hit correctly. It's. . .the freeze arrow. These
    horrid green arrows look like some kid got a green marker and smeared it all
    over the arrow. Step on the arrow as if it were a normal arrow. Keep stepping
    on the arrow. Ignore those twitching calf muscles and keep on stepping! The
    arrow will either resolve with a nice O.K., or it will go dark somewhere in the
    middle, scroll on, and an ugly N.G. will grace the screen. The O.K. judgements
    help both score and meter. The N.G. judgements are notorious for making people
    fail songs (especially that stupid freeze arrow in the middle of Max 300). For
    more on the freeze arrow, refer to the next section.

    SLIDE-Hit two arrows (eighth note or faster) with the same foot. This
    technique is useful for certain arrow patterns. Overuse of this technique is
    darned tiring.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    V. I wanna dance NOW!!! (or The Commandments, for short)

    So you don't have the patience to read through the whole FAQ? Well, hothead,
    here are a few general tips before you make a complete idiot of yourself (or
    you can call this the Twenty and a Half Commandments of Dancing).

    0.5. Make sure that the shoes you're wearing have treads on them and are
    comfortable. I've already slipped twice because I wore non-tread shoes. Also,
    you're not supposed to have blisters by the time you're done dancing.
    Nickel also sent this note in about socks: "Make sure you wear socks that
    aren't wearing thin on the bottoms or sides, as they may give you blister
    problems." Girls, if you really want to be good at this game, wear regular
    running shoes with treads on them. Platform sneakers don't count, as it takes
    more effort to lift than a regular sneaker (and yes, I wear running shoes when
    I dance). But if it comes down to a choice between slippers/high
    heels/slippery shoes/sandals or bare feet, use your bare feet (it's better to
    bruise your foot than to slip). At least bruised feet aren't an automatic
    failure.

    1. Watch what others do. It's a great way to learn how to feel the beat. I
    could ramble on and on about why it's important to watch others. But for your
    sake, I won't.

    2. If there is any room BEHIND you, dance along to the songs while someone else
    is playing. People may give you funny looks, but don't worry. Life's too
    short to worry about such things.

    3. Drag a friend along. Couple (two player) mode is easier than one player
    mode. Or, if your friend happens to be good, Versus mode can give you some
    valuable practice (because Versus mode has both players dancing to the same set
    of arrows as the one player game. . .but this doesn't apply to 4th Mix and
    later. . .read the third section to find out why). Just remember that ONE of
    you has to have something left in the dance meter. On the same token, if you
    really want to prove that you're good, dance alone.

    4. Start off simple. Trying to show off will only make you look like a fool
    when you fail the round.

    5. Dance to your personal favorite songs. I always do best on the songs I
    like. Dancing to songs you really dislike is a good way to fail (which is why
    I'll never pass My Fire). Just don't fall in love with Paranoia right away,
    okay?

    6. Keep your left foot on the left arrow. Use your right foot to step on the
    other three arrows. Don't forget to shift your weight whenever a left arrow
    scrolls onscreen. Do this for songs you're not too familiar with. For the
    songs you're fairly familiar with, use your left foot for whatever arrows show
    up (but don't lose your balance). Oh, yes, and you can just leave your foot at
    whatever arrow you last stepped on. It makes life so much easier on Boom Boom
    Dollar. Keeping your feet in neutral will make dancing to any song higher than
    two feet downright impossible (someone tried this). Either that, or you'll end
    up stepping on your own foot.

    7. Step to the beat. Very simple concept, yet very hard to do. If you know
    how to march, you have an advantage. If you're in a marching band, you have a
    bigger advantage, because you'll also know the fundamentals of music (which is
    extremely important in harder songs).

    8. Always look at your final grade, along with the graph at the top. You'll
    either feel extremely depressed or surprised. And if you're angry, no kicking
    the machine!

    9. Remember that NOT ALL SONGS ARE EQUAL. If you can dance to a song with a
    Superior rating, you may not be able to dance to ALL songs with a Superior
    rating. Some songs really should have gotten half-ratings (like three and a
    half feet).

    10. If thou art tired, thou shalt take a long rest, because thou may end up
    collapsing (been there, done that, quite humiliating). This means that if
    you've just played Maniac Mode 5 times in a row, take a nice long break. The
    machine isn't going anywhere (at least I don't think it's going anywhere). As
    an add-on, if you suffer from any health problems that are triggered by
    exertion (like asthma), make sure you're rested before you dance. Remember,
    THIS IS ONLY A GAME!!!!! If you start to feel strange (I got a stomach cramp
    after dancing to Paranoia Rebirth), rest, drink lots of fluids (water or some
    sports drink is best), eat something small (like a char siu bao, manapua, or
    meat bun, whatever you call it, 'cause it all describes the same thing), and,
    if possible, get some sleep. And whatever you do, DON'T EVER, EVER DANCE WHEN
    YOU'VE SKIPPED A MEAL OR MORE!!! I got VERY sick when I did this (I nearly
    ended up with a bad case of dry heaves).

    11. I sincerely hope this commandment doesn't apply to you. If you're
    recovering from some type of leg injury (sprained ankle, newly-healed broken
    leg, etc.), don't dance for long periods of time. You may end up injuring
    yourself again. For that matter, if you have back problems (slipped disc,
    etc.), don't dance for too long. DDR requires some odd back movements
    (especially the harder songs), and such twisting/jarring is not good for a bad
    back (trust me).

    12. Unless you are in grave danger of falling down, don't lean on the back bar
    as you dance. First, it messes up your balance (it does nasty things to my
    balance). Second, someone else may be leaning on it. Third, you may slip and
    fall down. Fourth, it looks more impressive when you do Paranoia without
    gripping the back bar. Lastly, the bar may be missing its black covering, and
    if you happen to grab the gray stuffing, you may slip anyway. Oh, yes, and if
    you're, um, heavy, and you're dancing with another heavy friend (no insult
    intended), and both of you lean on the back bar while you jump, the stage might
    move (always bad).

    13. Sheesh, I thought I wouldn't need to include this, but here it is. WAIT
    YOUR TURN! In one day alone, five different people cut in front of me (and I
    can't stay at the arcades for very long). Ask before you challenge. If you
    are better than the person who challenged you (this shouldn't happen too
    often), don't be a show off. In short, be courteous to others.

    14. Dancing style: Whatever feels comfortable to you. Some people play like
    they're sleepwalking, others stomp on the arrows and occasionally jump (me),
    some spin around (experts and related show-offs only), some lurch around trying
    to get to the next arrow (me again), some actually have a shuffle-step they've
    perfected (another expert trick, one which I usually use to make my shoes look
    scruffier), and a few will be constantly jumping. Do the last one only if you
    think you can handle the strain.

    15. If someone else is dancing, don't step on their arrows to mess them up.
    You may hurt that other person, and just maybe yourself. If someone does this
    to you (and you lose because of this), my opinion is that you have the right to
    ask the offending person to pay you a dollar (or however much a game of DDR
    costs).

    16. Girls, don't be afraid to improve. Who cares if a guy can dance really
    well on Maniac/Expert Mode? With practice, you should be able to challenge any
    guy! I don't want to be the only girl who can dance ALONE in any mode other
    than normal (and as I found out, I wasn't. Keep it up!).

    17. If there's a DDR USA in your favorite arcade, and you don't think you're
    all that good, play Beginner (the one with the blue feet). You'll have to miss
    a LOT of arrows to fail (but please, don't start off with a Paranoia mix).

    18. Don't be afraid to show off a little (but make sure you know the song well.
    I accidentally did this while dancing to Brilliant 2 U (Orchestral Groov)).
    Just a little. Too much and you'll start missing arrows/getting dizzy/falling
    down, etc. Yes, I know it sounds a bit contradictory, but if you actually show
    off, make sure you know where the fine line is between showing off and being
    silly.

    19. Watch out for walking dance stages. Nearly got a foot squashed because the
    stage MOVES! It's worse if the stage is on a waxed floor!! Please refer to
    #12 for a specific situation.

    20. Stuck with asthma? Don't exert yourself too much. Lying on the ground and
    gasping for air is not good. Especially in a smoky arcade. And while dancing,
    remember to BREATHE (this applies to everyone).

    21. If you fall off, jump back on. Standing there and giggling like you're on
    laughing gas is a sure way to fail. Yes, I fell off the machine more than
    once, and getting back on is essential to passing. Difficulty does not matter.
    I once slipped off in the middle of Afronova (the Catastrophic one). Somehow,
    I passed.

    22. Show-offs only. If you use your knees/elbows/hands/butt/face to hit
    arrows, wait until they heal before re-attempting that stunt. Rebruising
    yourself is painful, and it ain't all that pretty, either.

    23. How to alternate feet: First, remember that the left foot will ALWAYS hit a
    left arrow, and the right foot will ALWAYS hit the right arrow. The up/down
    arrows can be hit by either foot. So if you've got a left-down-up-right
    string, use the left foot for the left arrow, the right foot for the down
    arrow, the left foot for the up arrow, and the right foot for the right arrow.
    That is one example. There are many more; find them! Of course, exceptions
    abound. Two prominent ones also happen to be Catastrophic songs; I'll point
    them out. If there are any interesting exceptions, I'll also point them out.
    If two songs have similar techniques (example: Holic and Dead End, both on
    Maniac), I'll point that out, too.

    24. Don't stop in the middle of the song, unless you've got a foot cramp or
    problems breathing. Just looking at the arrows and saying, "I suck" is always
    a great way to make a fool of yourself. Try, try, try!

    25. Freeze arrows. . .what a pain. There's two ways of attacking this problem.
    One is to bounce up and down on the given arrow (not recommended unless you're
    really, really light, and/or you like calf cramps). The other way is to step
    on the center of the pad and pray. The heavier you are, the easier it is to
    get those silly freezes. If you can time the arrows correctly, it's possible
    to jump off the arrows a fraction of a second before they're over, and still
    get the O.K. judgement. I'm 110 pounds (about 48 kg), and I can get most of
    the freeze arrows (including those stupid left-right arrows in Max 300 AND Maxx
    Unlimited).

    26. Freeze arrows, part 2. Some people simply refuse to bounce, even if
    they're really light (like me and my crazy 90 lb. friend). When the freeze
    arrow comes up, put about 70% of your weight on your toes, and make sure that
    your toes are on the center of the pad. Bend your knees slightly. Pray. If
    you've got a freeze arrow in one direction, and there's no other arrow in
    sight, see if you can balance on one foot. If you're stuck with those icky
    double-step arrows, watch them carefully. More often than not, you'll favor
    one foot, and the resulting weight difference will mess up the whole freeze.
    Pay attention to which foot you favor and adjust accordingly. If you've got a
    freeze arrow in one direction and a bunch of other arrows you have to hit
    during the freeze, learn to "toe the pad", or hit the pad with the toe of your
    other foot *just* hard enough for it to register. Sometimes, Konami will do
    something like a long up arrow freeze with a regular left arrow a beat later
    and a regular right arrow a beat after that. This requires a LOT of practice.
    Good luck!

    27. Last of all, HAVE FUN!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    VI. The songs

    This is a listing of all the songs you will find in the arcades (I live
    somewhere in that country called America). . .with the exception of 4th Mix.
    These ratings are for normal mode only.

    A not-so-quick note about the ratings: The songs listed here are in order of
    difficulty, from simplest (one foot) to hardest (in this case, six feet). The
    ratings can go as high as eight feet (Exorbitant). To find the Trick Mode
    ratings, add one to the number of feet shown here (unless I make some other
    note in the strategy section). For Maniac Mode ratings, add two feet (again, I
    may make some comment about the rating in the strategy section).

    Konami made names for their ratings. Here they are. . .
    1 foot=SIMPLE
    2 feet=MODERATE
    3 feet=ORDINARY
    4 feet=SUPERIOR
    5 feet=MARVELOUS
    6 feet=GENUINE
    7 feet=PARAMOUNT
    8 feet=EXORBITANT
    9 feet=CATASTROPHIC
    10 feet=?????

    song)
    The Race-Captain Jack PRACTICE MODE ONLY (appears in 3rd Mix as a playable
    song)

    Those arcade songs that weren't replaced are in this mix, too. A little bit on
    replacements: I used this term because those songs that "replaced" an arcade
    song have similar step patterns or (in the case of Boys), were done by the same
    artist. If there is a question mark next to anything, that means I'm relying
    on what I remember, and I may be wrong.

    THESE SONGS APPEAR IN DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION: 3RD MIX (NONSTOP) ONLY:

    La Senorita: Captain.T SUPERIOR (really bad Ricky Martin wannabe. Or is it
    the other way around?)
    Dead End: N & S MARVELOUS

    Oh, yes, and pointed out that most of these songs are from 3rd Mix, but some
    are from 2nd Mix (like Tubthimpin').

    I'm missing a lot of information, in the form of ratings. HELP!

    As for the song censor, you figure it out (really big hint: look at my comments
    about the songs and/or the name of the group that performed the song. If I
    make sarcastic/otherwise stupid comments, that song isn't meant for the younger
    generation (the really, really, younger generation), with the exception of the
    Paranoia remix).

    THESE ARE THE SONGS FOR DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION USA:

    El Ritmo Tropical (El Bimbo) (!): Dixie's Gang MODERATE (Oh dear. . .)
    Jam Jam Reggae (AMD Swing Mix): Rice C. featuring jam master '73 MODERATE
    Silent Hill: Thomas Howard MODERATE (I call it the Christmas song. WTH?)

    Brilliant 2 U: Naoki SUPERIOR (all right!)

    End of the Century: No. 9 SUPERIOR (Beethoven's 9th, techno style)
    Keep On Movin': N.M.R. SUPERIOR (HHM 2 song!!)
    La Senorita: Captain.T SUPERIOR
    Luv To Me (AMD Mix): DJ Kazu featuring tiger Yamato SUPERIOR

    Paranoia Rebirth: 190' GENUINE
    Trip Machine: De-sire GENUINE
    Trip Machine (Luv Mix): 2MB GENUINE

    These are only the ratings for the songs on Double Mode. Convince me, and I
    might just start playing Double.

    Now excuse me while I collapse.

    Want the 4th Mix Arcade list? Here's most of it. I'm missing a few songs in
    just about everything except for Pops Side B and Covers & Classics. As for
    ratings. . .if the song is listed in another mix, I will not bother with a
    rating (use the Find feature for Internet Explorer. I think Netscape has
    something similar. For that matter, most browsers have it). If this is the
    FIRST time I list the song (for example, Drop Out), I shall put a rating down.

    Player's Best
    Whatever's popular. . .due to the fact that some of the settings were messed
    with, the Player's Best list is not a reflection of the overplayed songs in the
    arcade I frequent.

    Just when I thought it was all over. . .DDR 4th Mix Plus comes into town. The
    various categories have been shuffled, switched, and otherwise messed with.
    Some songs have changed difficulties; if I relist a rating, that means that the
    song has new Maniac steps. To get the old ones back, play the Maniac-S edit.
    If there is no Maniac-S edit, then the song is from DDR Extra Mix.

    DDR 5th Mix Song List. . .it's gonna be a bit difficult to record these songs,
    due to the fact that some of the song titles contain Japanese. I'll mark these

    Name That Tune section. Oh, and if I relist the ratings to a song in a
    previous mix (Dub-I-Dub), that means the steps have changed.

    STRATEGY, SORT OF

    Where to find stuff. . .I have my opinions stuck in wherever the song is listed
    in the song listing section (except for DDR 3rd Nonstop Mix). So if you wanted
    to find. . .oh, La Senorita, check out the USA section (since Nonstop is
    non-playable). If you can't find the song in either the original (short) OR
    USA (seems to be 3rd Mix in Japan) section, chances are it's in the 4th or 5th
    Mix section. Still can't find it? I probably didn't write anything for it.

    (Before you decide that I'm a control freak, I'm putting in my comments about
    the lyrics as a service to those who have younger siblings to watch. Some
    parents may not appreciate their children being exposed to some of the subject
    matter that is sung about)

    Here are the songs-with my opinions:

    Have You Never Been Mellow-Originaly by Olivia Newton-John. This song is only
    for those who can't take the speed of Boom Boom Dollar. The biggest problem in
    the song is the speed-up in the chorus. The steps go from one step per measure
    to two steps per measure to one step per beat. There will be a long break
    right before the chorus kicks in. During the chorus, one section will go
    left/right/up/down. Remember that there is no break between the first two
    arrows. Watch your balance. Tempo: too slow (112)

    TRICK MODE-Still easy. However, the arrows now come once every two beats in
    the verse, and will come once every beat sooner than you'd like to think.

    MANIAC MODE-The only time I saw someone dance to this was when his "friend"
    accidentally hit the song select buttons, thus selecting Have You Never Been
    Mellow. If you can dance to AM-3P in single player mode and clear that stage
    easily, passing this song should be fairly easy. Yes, there are eighth notes
    thrown in (a whole string of 'em, in fact). The rating goes up to Superior for
    some odd reason. . .oh yeah, this is Maniac Mode.

    Boom Boom Dollar-Some people might object to the lyrics. IMHO, this should
    have been the beginning song. The step rate is pretty constant. The chorus
    stepping is also fairly easy to figure out. When dancing to this song, do not
    put your feet back at neutral. Tempo: 124

    TRICK MODE-The rating goes up to Marvelous. It's not as bad as it looks. Just
    keep a clear head (and remember that most of those bunched-up arrows are UP
    BEATS). Somewhere in the verse, a string of eighth notes (seven of them,
    according to Nickel) will appear. Memorize this string, as it will be repeated
    in Maniac Mode.

    MANIAC MODE-What did they do to this song? The Genuine rating should be taken
    very seriously, especially when the singer starts to hold out his words.
    Sixteen arrows will race up to the top of the screen (did you memorize the
    string of arrows in Trick Mode? The sequence is the same, but the timing is
    not). If you can pull this stunt off while the aforementioned arrow string is
    going, it's impressive (from Nickel). Practice this slowly, because there is a
    very good possibility that you'll trip. Use your right foot for the up and
    down arrows. Use your left foot for the left and right arrows. The sequence
    goes up/left/down/right/down/left, and will repeat itself until sixteen arrows
    are stepped on. The chorus is also a pain in the rear, but the last time the
    chorus is sung is really nasty. If you don't believe me, try it yourself.

    Butterfly-Many people like this song. Again, the beat is fairly constant, but
    the concept of double steping is what messes people up. In the one player
    game, the two pads will always be left and right. In the Couple game (normal),
    the double step on the up and down pads will show up. Moral of the story: try
    this song out in one player mode or Versus mode first. Tempo: 127.

    TRICK MODE-Easier than the original, the only real change is the up-down double
    step before the left-right double step, and a surprise in the chorus. Sort of
    reminds me of hopscotch.

    MANIAC MODE-Although it's supposed to be easier than Boom Boom Dollar on Maniac
    Mode, I find it harder. The up beat steps are very hard to predict. The
    beginning is, well, shifted (try this to find out what I mean). The ending is
    the same, though.

    Put Your Faith In Me-The trick to this song is timing. Since this is one of
    the slower songs, make sure that you step exactly on the beat. There will be
    times where the arrows come on the up beat, but they are rare. Not too many
    people dance to this song on normal mode. Tempo: 121 (?) (my metronome is doing
    some odd things. . .)

    TRICK MODE-If you can pass the normal mode without difficulty, then you should
    be able to pass this mode (with a little bit of difficulty). When the verse is
    being sung, the extra arrows show up.

    MANIAC MODE-About a third of the arrows in this song are stepped on the up
    beat. There's a pattern to the verse of the song (with the exception of the
    seven-arrow string that shows up here and there). Have fun with the chorus!
    This is a typical, slow Genuine piece.

    Put Your Faith In Me (Jazz Groov)-DON'T DO THIS SONG ON THE LAST STAGE, UNLESS
    YOU HAVE LOTS OF ENDURANCE! This time, the up beats aren't in nice sets of
    three. One in particular comes in a set of two. If you're not dead on your
    feet when doing this song, you have a chance of passing. Tempo: forget it (jazz
    and my metronome don't like each other).

    TRICK MODE-The beginning is confusing. If the verse is no problem for you,
    then the rest of this song should be a breeze. Please note that you'll be
    dancing to a few too many up-beats.

    MANIAC MODE-There's a reason why this is the Jazz Mix. The rhythm may feel
    weird, but that's the essence of jazz (up beats). Hence, some of those weird
    strings start on the up beat.

    Brilliant 2 U-My personal favorite song. This song will only show up in the
    first two stages. The beat is fast if you're new to this song. If you find
    Butterfly too slow, try this song. The double step pattern is again used, but
    this time, the arrows are up and down (along with the left and right arrows).
    The ending requires some very fast stepping. Some eighth notes will pop up in
    the beginning. Learn to recognize them, as songs with the Superior rating and
    higher will incorporate them (in some cases, way too often). Are you up to it?

    TRICK MODE-Prepare for a lot of steping. Much more double steping than in the
    original. During the middle double-steps, there is a pattern to the steps.
    The first two have the left arrow in common. The second group has the up
    arrow. The third is the right arrow, and the last two have the down arrow. The
    ending is jazzed up a little (but the rhythm is the same). This is the first
    song on the Naoki Standard Course.

    MANIAC MODE-The thing that makes this song a pain on Maniac mode is the fast
    stepping during the synthesizer melody (because you are literally stepping to
    the melody). Just note that some patterns are used more than once (okay, okay,
    it's two patterns used seven times). For these patterns, don't be afraid to
    shift your feet around (start off the first string with your right foot on the
    up arrow, and your left foot on the down arrow. Once you step on the up arrow,
    step on the up arrow with your rightt foot again. After stepping on the up
    arrow, quickly stomp on the left arrow with your left foot. Immediately after
    the previous step, step on the right arrow with your right foot, and the down
    arrow with your left foot. Figure out the rest on your own). You may find
    just a trace of the Normal Mode steps. . .

    ONI MODE-This song is the first song on Naoki Platinum. . .which no one plays.

    Make It Better-The programmers put in every double step pattern in this song.
    After the annoying double step section, the song will go into various eighth
    note patterns of monumental annoyance. The half note triplet is introduced,
    and it is SLOW (you know, those steps that just don't feel right? Those are
    the half note triplets)! Do this song as a bridge between the Superior and
    Marvelous ratings (only because AM-3P is slightly faster than this). Don't be
    heartbroken if you can't pass this song on your first try. Tempo: 117, or a
    little slower than two beats per second.

    TRICK MODE-There was only one really hard spot, and that was at the end.
    Besides the obligatory extra steps, the timing has been changed ever so
    slightly. You'll know what I mean when you play this. Some slightly
    sleep-deprived programmer put a certain something in the beginning, and if you
    find THAT hard, you'll find the rest of the song extremely difficult. If you
    find that you can't dance to this, don't even consider Maniac Mode.

    MANIAC MODE-Before you play this, make sure you are familiar with Trick Mode.
    Life will be much easier if you are. If you aren't, you're in for a nightmare
    (unless your reactions are FAST). Most of those eighth note strings end in a
    double step. One string of six arrows is in a pattern of one, two, one, two
    (the numbers represent how many arrows you have to step on at once). IMHO,
    there is WAY too much up-beat stepping. Before you try the remixed version,
    try this first. If you can clear the ending to this song without scrambling,
    you have a chance of doing the So Real Mix. The ending requires either careful
    dissection or three feet. This song wasn't rated Paramount for nothing. It is
    possible!!

    My Fire-No offense to all of you who like this song, but I find it to be a Put
    Your Faith in Me wannabe with Butterfly dance steps and more questionable
    lyrics (you can prove me wrong by e-mailing me the lyrics to this song). Not
    too many people dance to this song. The beginning is easy enough. Use the
    relatively simplistic down arrows to build a streak. The bunched-up arrows
    call for three very fast steps on the same arrow. You will know the song has
    ended by the last two down arrows, very close together. Pace yourself. This
    song really feels like a hop-scotch game.

    TRICK MODE-More arrows. That is all I remember.

    MANIAC MODE-It's not the up-beats that make this song hard. It's where the
    up-beats are placed. Hmm. . .maybe Konami should have retitled this My Fire
    (Trip Machine Mix) :P..

    AM-3P-I have no idea what the title is supposed to mean. I do know that this
    song is much harder than it seems. The beginning has a nice hopscotch pattern.
    When you hear the "melody" to this song, get ready for a musician's nightmare.
    I call it a musician's nightmare because it's very hard to play a quarter note
    triplet correctly (especially at the speed of this song). Step carefully, and
    don't fall over. Tempo: 130.

    TRICK MODE-This is what AM-3P will be like in Maniac Mode-sort of. The hardest
    part is trying to figure out the rhythm. If you don't flunk out on the
    beginning, you may make it through the whole song. Oh, yes, and a note about
    the beginning. The programmers put some strange things in the beginning of
    this song (like a bunch of eighth notes where they don't belong). . .

    MANIAC MODE-This is the second-most popular song on Maniac Mode (next to Trip
    Machine). In the beginning, there will be a constant stream of down arrows,
    with arrows in other directions on the up beat (although many people, like me,
    leave one foot on the down arrow, I've seen someone do it with one foot on the
    left arrow. I'm not quite sure how, but he passed with an S rating). Next
    will be a string of right arrows, with more annoying arrows on the up beat.
    After that, you'll have to deal with a string of left arrows. Streak here if
    possible. When the "melody" plays for a second time, there will be two notes
    that look very close together. Welcome to the sixteenth note. For more info
    on how to deal with these things, please refer to the Brilliant 2 U (Orchestral
    Groov) Maniac Mode section. After the second long eighth note string (the one
    where it's easy to get a 16 combo), there will be a very confusing mass of
    eighth notes (show-off alert, show-off alert!). If you really want to dance to
    this song, do so before you use the bathroom.:) For a real challenge, do this
    song on either Hidden or Shuffle mode.

    ONI MODE-This remix sounds SO cool! It's slow, and the rhythm is rather
    awkward. Appears on the Midnight Blue course. Also appears on Trick (Extreme)
    as the song with the Bouncy Arrows. The arrows will come up a short ways, go
    back down, come up, go back down, etc. Your job is to hit the arrows when
    you're supposed to.

    Brilliant 2 U (Orchestral Groov)-There's no melody in this mix.:( There are
    more eighth notes thrown in (with one eighth note in a really weird spot),
    along with a frustrating number of double step patterns. Some demented
    programmer put a surprise in the beginning. Do not try Trip Machine before
    this song.

    TRICK MODE-Want to know the meaning of syncopation? Play this song. It ain't
    easy, though. You'll know when the syncopation hits (the part where you're
    lurching, trying your best not to fall over). At one point, the arrows will
    look a bit weird. When this happens, stomp to the beat of the music
    (literally). This is passable (and if you think this one is hard. . .)

    MANIAC MODE-Don't take this rating lightly. There are sixteenth notes galore
    in this song. If the arrows look close together (and are in the middle of a
    "melody"), those arrows are probably sixteenth notes. Don't even attempt to
    step on the sixteenth notes with the same foot. You'll NEVER make it in time
    (or you may, but you'll have a nasty leg cramp). Something that Nickel
    suggested (and I am guilty of it too) is to step in the air and land in such a
    way that you land on the first arrow with one foot, and your other foot lands
    on the second arrow as fast as you can (but not at the same time). However,
    this rule doens't always apply.

    Make It Better (So Real Mix)-Not very popular. More annoying than the
    original. Still the double step patterns like crazy. Go figure. This
    wouldn't be a Make it Better song without it. Tempo: too slow!

    TRICK MODE-Don't EVER dance this song right after playing something like Trip
    Machine or Brilliant 2 U. This song goes very slowly, and the timing is
    something else. If you don't believe me, try it for yourself.

    MANIAC MODE-This is the hardest song to do on Maniac Mode, hands down (the
    Exorbitant rating should tell you something). If you see a nice, on-the-beat
    step, your eyes are deceiving you. Those steps are probably half note
    triplets! All the double step patterns are there, but they are dispersed
    through the song. Some parts are going to feel strange, because you won't be
    stepping in time to anything (the background music or the singer). The ending
    requires careful dissection or three feet (for best results, leave left foot on
    left arrow, and use right foot to stomp on other arrows, until the last two or
    three beats, when you're on your own). If you're confident you can pass it,
    this is a great finisher.

    Trip Machine-Take the title of this song literally. Make sure that your shoe
    laces are tied tight, unless you really like tripping in front of many people
    (especially after the "singer" says something about "returning to the show").
    The rhythm is synchopated (you'll know what I mean after you try to dance to
    some of the oddly-placed eighth notes). This song is very popular in Maniac
    Mode. I'm not sure why. Tempo: 160!

    TRICK MODE-The middle is so very different from Maniac Mode. The ending is
    also a bit different. . .thank goodness the beginning is fairly easy.
    Otherwise, I'd never have lasted through this song!

    MANIAC MODE-VERY tiring (yes, I've tried it). A note about the beginning-you
    can position yourself so that one foot is on the down arrow. It makes the
    beginning easier. . .until a left-up-right pattern shows up. After that
    pattern shows up, go back to your regular position. Don't ask me how to do the
    nine-arrows-in-four-and-a-half-beats section, because I ususally miss a few
    arrows in that section. There is a three-beat break in the middle of the song.
    After the three-beat break, things start getting very weird (like eighth notes
    where they don't belong). For all of you who like to show off, try to turn
    around in the middle of the song (the easiest part of this song besides the
    beginning). One word best describes the middle and end of this song: cycle
    (this will make sense to those who have seen/danced to this song often). If
    you thought normal mode was hard. . .

    Paranoia-Finally, the grand daddy of all songs (in speed, not necessarily
    timing). Missed steps will result in having plenty of your dance meter taken
    away. The song will slow down in the middle (for the whole of three measures).
    After that, there will be plenty of arrows for you to step on. If you're
    going for score, get the streak in the beginning. Tempo: 180, or three beats
    per second!!

    TRICK MODE-Not as bad as certain other songs that are played in Trick Mode
    (like AM-3P). Remember to keep stomping on the bunched-up arrows until all
    arrows are gone. If you really want to know the secret of passing this finale
    song, your reactions must be up to par. . .

    MANIAC MODE-The nightmare never ends. There are an alarming amount of people
    who dance to this song in Maniac Mode. Trust me, this song goes twice as fast
    on Maniac Mode (especially the beginning). The timing is also strange (if each
    down beat had a number, and each up beat is represented by *, then the
    beginning would look like: one, two, three, *, four, five, six, *, seven, *,
    eight, etc.). This pattern will repeat in the middle (sort of). This song
    appears on the Paraonia Brothers course (as the "oldest" brother) and Kidou
    (with an increase of only one battery bar).

    NOTE: THE SONGS LISTED BELOW ARE FOUND ONLY ON DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION: 2ND MIX.

    Boys-Much like Butterfly. If there's been any changes, I haven't noticed
    (except the lyrics change, which now makes this song sound something like a bad
    cross between Butterfly and Boom Boom Dollar).
    BEST FOR: Read the DDR USA section.
    HARDEST PART: Read the DDR USA section.

    El Ritmo Tropical-Lousy rhyming, tricky timing (this is why I'm writing an FAQ
    and not a song). This is what triplets are all about. They're bound to feel
    weird, but it's correct. Just be glad that there are no old English marches
    included in these games (as everyone who tried to dance to them would DIE!).
    BEST FOR: Read the DDR USA section.
    HARDEST PART: Read the DDR USA section.

    Tubthumpin'-The only thing I remember is that this song is SLOW! (This song is
    about drinking. And drinking. And drinking. Some people may not like this
    subject).
    BEST FOR: Make it Better fans.
    HARDEST PART: Not turning this song into a drinking game.

    Hero-Much like My Fire. Unfortunately, I don't remember anything significant
    about this song (other than the ugly green background, and a few eighth notes).
    BEST FOR: My Fire fans.
    HARDEST PART: Said eighth notes.

    Stomp to my Beat-Take the song title literally. That is, stomp to the artist's
    beat. Here's a Deathlok-corrects-Tracy-on-lyrics song.
    BEST FOR: Read the DDR USA section.
    HARDEST PART: Read the DDR USA section.

    MANIAC MODE-Instead of stomping only to the artist's beat, stomp to the
    drummer's beat, too. Don't slip on the extremely fast section in the middle.

    Love This Feeling-This is the only song with a tempo change. It starts out
    very, very, very slow. To give you an idea how slow it goes, look at a watch
    with a second hand. For every two seconds that go by, evenly tap three times.
    Go slightly faster (and I do mean slightly) and you have the tempo for the
    beginning (which, for all of you who know how to read a metronome, is 95).
    Somewhere in the middle, this song will speed up past Paranoia speed (to 190,
    while Paranoia speed is 180. To give you an idea on how fast the latter is,
    evenly tap three times in one second). The step pattern, however, is the same
    (which isn't saying much).
    BEST FOR: Read the DDR USA section.
    HARDEST PART: Read the DDR USA section.

    MANIAC MODE-Well, all I can say is have fun on the fast section!

    Paranoia (Dirty Mix)-Consider it a faster version of Paranoia (and if the group
    name has anything to do with tempo, then the tempo is probably 190).
    BEST FOR: Show-offs who miss the original Paranoia.
    HARDEST PART: Not slipping on the dance mat.

    MANIAC MODE-Same steps as original Paranoia.

    Paranoia MAX (Dirty Mix)-Not too sure about this song, since my slightly insane
    friends played it on Maniac Mode.

    MANIAC MODE-Gulp. Too many arrows. I have yet to see anyone go more than
    halfway through this song. To give you an idea of the arrow format, combine
    the significant feature of Make It Better with the beginning of Maniac Mode
    Paranoia, and set it to this song's speed (which is about as fast as you'll
    fail this song on the first try. I'm not insulting you. I'm being a realist.
    Think you can pass it on the first try?). This song is the second oldest
    Paranoia Brother.

    Paranoia (Clean Mix)-My friends played this song on Maniac Mode. Crazy, huh?
    BEST FOR: Read the DDR USA section.
    HARDEST PART: Read the DDR USA section.

    MANIAC MODE-Just like the previous song. Count yourself a champion if you can
    pass this song without panting. This song is a cata on MAX 2, and is the third
    oldest Paranoia Brother.

    SP Trip Machine (Jungle Mix)-The faster version of Trip Machine. That's all I
    remember.

    Trip Machine (Luv Mix)-Imagine someone playing Trip Machine backwards. Now
    imagine the timing is trickier. Welcome to the remix.
    BEST FOR: Read the DDR USA section.
    HARDEST PART: Read the DDR USA section.

    MANIAC MODE-How many superlatives can I cram into this FAQ? Another pain to
    dance to (literally). This time, there's more rest (and some nasty little
    things between rests).

    Dub I Dub-I only played this song in Maniac Mode.

    *Tracy sticks her tongue out at Leviathan, who just HAD to try this song on
    Maniac Mode*

    MANIAC MODE-Hey, who put the dance steps to Trip Machine and Butterfly in here?
    Like Trip Machine, the beginning is easy (for a Maniac Mode song). The chorus
    is another matter entirely.
    BEST FOR: Read the DDR USA section.
    HARDEST PART: Read the DDR USA section.

    I am not going to bother with Bad Girls and 20, November. I seem to have a
    case of amnesia concerning those two songs.

    In The Navy-This is a practice mode song. Find out yourself. Just remember
    that when the Village People sang this song, some people were offended (it had
    to do with the Navy and a sensitive issue that is usually associated with
    another branch of the military. If you can't figure out what this is supposed
    to mean, fine by me. Don't e-mail me about this).

    The Race-Okay, Deathlok, here's a tribute to you. The lyrics aren't TOO bad
    (but I still think they're junk). Find out yourself, as this is a practice
    mode song.

    THESE ARE THE DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION USA STRATEGIES
    For Brilliant 2 U, Make It Better, Put Your Faith in Me, and Trip Machine, just
    look at the original Dance Dance Revolution synopsis ('cause I'm lazy). It's
    the same. For other mixes, I'll elaborate a bit more.
    A note about difficulty ratings: See the next section for details.

    El Ritmo Tropical-Why is this song in this game? Not too bad for a Moderate
    song. The notes in the beginning come once every two beats. Then it speeds up
    to one note per beat. There are double steps, so be prepared. Not the easiest
    song (IMHO, it's Silent Hill). It's party time on the ship whose name I will
    not mention, because it's not right!!

    DIFFICULT MODE-Follow the singer. Or, figure out the rhythm on your own (it's
    strange) and dance along. Survive that and you should get past everything
    else. A Genuine pain.

    EXPERT MODE-Paramount, and that rhythm thing is now a nightmare. The small
    section in Difficu
