Game Size

celebrate, celebrate
every night's the night
celebrate, we celebrate
what a groovin' night

You wanna fly to the moon in the sky
You wanna shake up your body
wonderland awaits you there
I know you never regret

lookin' for a vision
You don't need to reason
ah, ah
some say you gonna
some say you wanna be there
it's all good

celebrate, celebrate
every night's the night
celebrate, we celebrate
what a groovin' night

knocking on heaven's door
lovely misty serenade it's all there

celebrate, celebrate
every night's the night
celebrate, we celebrate
what a groovin' night...

Long Version

Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX

dj nagureo

In this Soul Classic song produced by dj nagureo, complex horn sections and soulful vocals make you feel nostalgic.
I was surprised to have learned about a player who happens to be an acquaintance of the artist involved, JJ COMPANY is a very high-profile staff member. The fancy arrangement makes it interesting for games as well.
beatmania takes a step into the '70s with this song, who knows what else the future holds?

DanceDanceRevolution

The dance scene in the '70s was dominated by soul music, that took the funky parts of stoically evolved funk and sublimated them into pop music.
If you're familiar with the dance scene of that era, you'll find it hard to believe that this is the first time you've heard celebrate.
The band, which seems to have almost 20 members, the light percussion, the Earth, Wind & Fire-like brass riffs, and the male and female choruses singing in falsettos (back voices), all of these characteristics are well captured in the latest "hot-selling" phrases of that time. Between the music genres of beatmania, which have a wide range of the latest music, one can suddenly feel the history of dance music itself.

Video Production Information

VJ GYO

I recall that the image of this song came to me even as soon as I heard it, and then I was puzzled. After all, the singing and performance scenes were the first things that jumped out at me, and the image was then fixed in my mind.
It was unfortunate that we could not shoot such scenes this time due to various reasons, but the dance team, brown sugar, is originally active in the soul and R&B scene, and with the help of this authentic dance, I feel that we managed to finish the film.
The dance and beach scenes were shot in Japan, but I think we were able to get closer to the CLASSIC SOUL image by adding some landscape footage from the U.S. and other countries, and then adjusting the image quality.
