captain-jack

Can you believe it's been half a decade since the artist known as Captain Jack passed away? Man, where does the time go?! For many a fan of Konami's Dance Dance Revolution series, this artist has had many of his songs featured in the well-known rhythm game series, and I thought I'd share a few of my favorites! So DROP AND GIVE ME TWENTY! ... and after that hit the jump!

 

Since his debut in Dance Dance Revolution, Captain Jack has had several songs featured in DDR. Even after his untimely passing in 2005, (due to a heart attack) his music lived on in DDR SuperNOVA when it debuted in arcades, here are a few of his hits you probably have played at least once if you're at all familliar with the series: (As well as a special bonus song not seen in any DDR game!! EDIT: added a couple songs I forgot about, my bad!)


The Race (Appeared in Dance Dance Revolution 3rd MIX)


Captain Jack (Grandale Remix) (Appeared in Dance Dance Revolution 3rd MIX)


Drill Instructor (C-Jah Happy Mix) (From DDR SOLO 2000)


Dream A Dream (From Dance Dance Revolution 4th MIX)


Odoru no Ponpokorin (Appeared in Dance Dance Revolution 5th MIX)


Centerfold (130BPM -Move it Remix-) (Appeared in Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA)


Give It Up (Never appeared in any DDR, but did enjoy several years of being in rotation during Orange Lounge Radio's early days as a Music Videogame sstation!)

These are all really great tracks, there's no argument there... Where there IS potentially an argument, is which one is your favorite?! Personally I'd have to go with Centerfold as my favorite Captain Jack song, but partly because at the time just before SuperNOVA's announcement (and later reveal that the song would be appearing in the game) I'd started work on a simulator stepfile for the full-length version. Sadly I never finished it because let's face it, if Konami's already done the work making one, what's the point of me finishing mine?

I guess it always goes back to sentiment, what can I say? anyways I hope you enjoyed my retrospective/memorial for what I'm sure is one of your favorite artists from the arrow-smashing days...
