I Love That Song - Absolute PDF Print E-mail

Due to legal reasons I can't make this song available for download directly.

When I say the name dj TAKA, what songs come to mind? Rainbow Flyer? Sure, if you're into the newer styles. (For the record I may actually do that song one week, so watch for it!) But perhaps the most popular selection of his has got to be Absolute from both beatmania IIDX 4th Style, and Dance Dance Revolution 5th MIX.

The song itself is very memorable... TAKA's trademark style shines through in this track, with an unforgettable melody that anyone can enjoy, whether you're stomping on arrows or hitting the keys/turntable.

There have been quite a few different remixes, such as the 'Rock Guitar' remix done by good-cool for Pop'n Music 9, and a rather disappointing (imo) remix by Thuggie D that appeared in the XBOX Ultramix games, as well as DDR Extreme 2 on PS2. (EDIT: Shout-out to act-deft, there was also a great remix on dj TAKA's 'Milestone' album, which features some of his best work, as well as remixes of his songs by other infamous BEMANI artists.)

Personally I'm hoping this song gets selected to appear in Dance Dance Revolution: Volume 1 slated to appear on PS2/Wii/PS3/360 later this year!

Random Trivia: Absolute was the very first winner of Orange Lounge Radio's 'Listless' segment, way the f*** back on Episode 5, in 'best beatmania IIDX song ever'... as chosen by yours truly. :3
