Song Connections / Remixes

  • Spica is part of wac's Zodiac series of songs, representing Virgo.
  • Spica sounds quite different on all three difficulties.
    • The beatmania IIDX 7th style Original Soundtrack version of Spica is based on the HYPER chart version of the song, albeit with an extended ending.
    • In the arcade series of REFLEC BEAT, Spica's BASIC, MEDIUM/HARD, and SPECIAL/WHITE HARD charts use Spica's NORMAL, HYPER, and ANOTHER versions of the song, respectively.
      • REFLEC BEAT plus originally only used the NORMAL audio for the BASIC/MEDIUM/HARD charts, likely because the option to use split audio files between its difficulties was not yet implented. The BEMANI MUSIC FOCUS PACK 08 was originally withdrawn on October 6th, 2017 for this reason. This was eventually fixed in REFLEC BEAT plus version 4.5.7, first available on November 29th, 2017.
    • In the ノスタルジア series, Spica's Normal, Hard/Expert, and Real charts are based on the NORMAL, HYPER, and ANOTHER versions of the song respectively, albeit with an extended ending.
  • A live medley of Spica, OVER THE CLOUDS, and Make A Difference was played at the beatmania IIDX secret LIVE ~one night premium party~ on September 13th, 2003. This medley can be found on the BEMANIトップランカー決定戦 2006 Sound Tracks, titled wacのライブ用トラック1。 ハウスっぽいやつ集めたの。.
  • A long version of Spica can be found on the NOSTALGIA Music Collection ~Op.3~ album.

  • Spica (α Virgonis) is the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo, and one of the brightest stars in the night sky.

  • Spica has different jackets for BASIC, MEDIUM/HARD and SPECIAL/WHITE HARD.
    • These jackets are based on the original overlays for Spica in beatmania IIDX.
    • REFLEC BEAT plus uses only the BASIC jacket as of version 4.5.7.
      • Originally, the 3 jackets were arranged into a 2 by 2 grid formation, with a black space in the bottom right corner, to make a singular jacket.

Music Comment

From "beatmania IIDX". Shining blue Spica, the maiden in the sky of fertility.

Song Production Information


"It's amazing... It's full of stars... Am I holding the stars?". So my name is D.JW, born between Leo and Virgo.
Did I introduce myself? Maybe, probably not.
So in my next work, I will be .djw! It looks like a filename extension.
By the way, I can say it now that DJ is an abbreviation of "daigouin jaki". Did everyone know it?
I can't clear 5th Dan. It's an OutPhase conspiracy. This isn't the place to write a diary.

I thought "Spica" sounded like a Swahili word, so it has some Afro beats.
Although I thought about it and couldn't digest it, so only the voice remained African as a result.
Aiaiaiaiai. Wow. I understand what the word means, but is it African anyways?

For LIGHT and ANOTHER, this song couldn't be any easier or harder, so the piano phrases were entirely created on the editor, so even though it's extreme, with Spica's flower language, "hidden passion", please do your best to clear the level at your own pace.
I tried to put it all together nicely.

Video Production Information


I made the animation.
There's footage, but isn't it a bit strange to not turn it upside down? It's an image of a landscape.
The beautiful piano with a difficult chart, as expected... The mark traveled, as expected... ....?
