Ooh ah-ha, ooh ah-ha

Ooh ah-ha, ooh ah-ha
Ooh ah-ha, ooh ah-ha

Check you, check you baby
You're my honey, honey love
I'm gonna shake it up
Get ready to start

California dream
It's a sunny paradise
It's not a love offense
So make a magic night

Ooh, don't you make me cry
I'll never leave you alone
For your love, go ahead and see
Shine on me again

* Show me love, show me love
Can't you be my love, baby
No, no darling, come and show me how to love
Show me how, show me love
Won't you be my love, baby
No, no darling, come and get my love for you

So sweet, so nice (so nice)
My love!

Ooh ah-ha, ooh ah-ha
Ooh ah-ha, ooh ah-ha
Ooh ah-ha ha ha

Song Production Information


positive MA

This song is a nostalgic crossover from IIDX.
Since Ueno's songs are always popular, we decided to bring one of them over to THE FINAL as well.
My basic intention was to chart the song so that it wouldn't feel out of place in IIDX, but I put some effort in here and there into making it reasonable to play in 5-key.
I'd be happy for you to enjoy playing the game as you listen closely to the song.

beatmania IIDX

dj nagureo

"Ooh, ah-ha" This is an impressive tune. Handled by producer and composer Keiichi Ueno, this dance pop song is very high quality.
Ueno is quite the gamer, and he plays beatmania fairly often. He made this original composition to give to us. The catchy melody seems to make a strong impression in many people. beatmania will continue to pursue high quality music and games, even with dance pops.


With its up-tempo tune, this popular song offers a fresh, different way than in melt in my arms to enjoy Asuka.M's incredibly clear vocals. The synth brass backing arrangement is particularly outstanding, and it's impossible not to move your body when listening to it. Only by listening to the whispery vocalist's own sampled voice in the introduction is enough to make you anticipate the danceable and groovy development that follows.
The chorus and synth brass in the famous hook section made many people who first heard this song in arcade beatmania titles eagerly await the soundtrack.

Dance Maniax

This popular vocal song continues to be included in beatmania IIDX 2nd style and the PS version of DanceDanceRevolution CLUB VERSION. The catchy melody, cute female vocals, and familiar medium tempo played together in 3/4 time result in a high quality Western-like pop song. The sigh-like "ooh, ah-ha" phrases are also very sexy. It has a gentle melody, so you might hum this before you know it.

Video Production Information


For this and many other movies, the filming was completed before the song is uploaded and stocked as material not for a specific movie, and the video clip is created halfway improvising with the atmosphere and development of the song during the editing stage.
This is a method that falls somewhere between traditional music video production and the improvisation of a VJ connecting various videos at a club or event.
The dance scene in the movie was actually shot on a different schedule from the production of the song. I remember that the song genre used for the dance scene was completely different from that of Dr. LOVE.
It was the first time for the dance team brawn sugar to perform on the street, and although they were a bit confused at first, they eventually relaxed and enjoyed the dance performance. I hope you can feel the atmosphere of that event.
