Introduce eurobeat to a new person

Post by Bore » Aug 15th, '04, 11:25

I was just wondering about this the other day, as a few people were asking me that "What the heck is eurobeat" and I tried to briefly explain how it is, but I guess the best way would be to play them a song and then let them decide for themselves.

Which eurobeat song(s) would you use when introducing the whole genre to a person who has never heard anything about eurobeat?

My picks would be:

Matt Land - Fever The Night
Nuage - Baby Get My Fire Tonite
Susy Wender - Runaway
Lolita - Try Me


Which song from all of the eurobeat songs out there would blow the newbies minds?

Ummm... I think mine would have to be:
Bazooka Girl - Velfarre 2000
Domino - ParaPara Paradise
Nuage - I Just Want to keep you Hangin'on
Mister Max - Tokyo Killer
Leslie Parrish - Save Me

Here i can say about the ParaPara dance and the InitialD anime. =)
About Velfarre too...

And its cool because some friends know the Nuage music... Or the melody... They say "I think I know that song..." =D

you said "to introduce eurobeat" not "to introduce domino" :P I was thinking about what music to introduce someone with, from experience

and thinking of other songs:

Hot For Your Body, any Manuel song, Bye Bye Baby, Me, Myself & I, etc.

Dusty - Crazy For Love and Krystal & Dima - Let The Music Play

Crazy For Love is aggressive, "manly" Eurobeat. I think it's easily accessible. Let The Music Play is more lighthearted and bubbly, but is still pure Eurobeat. I can't agree with throwing a Hi-NRG Attack song at someone off the bat, unless you're trying to turn someone away from the genre.

I would definitely throw some Hi-NRG Attk at some new peeps! 90s & 2000-2010 material was ace. Outside Hi-NRG Attk, I would probably dig into the 90s or early 2000s from eurobeat roots, and then give an example from 2007-2009, and then some new examples from the 221 relaunch era we're in.

I guess it would depend on what track you went with. I just think a fast, corny song about cows or Russia would be considered a bit weird to most. Don't get me wrong, Hi-NRG Attack was one of my favorite labels and I still dig their stuff a lot, I just think most people wouldn't be able to soak it in too well initially.

Ya! I don't particularly like the cow tracks, but love the Russian-themed ones. I would definitely do one of the female tracks.

A handful of female HRG tracks that I could see are:

Lilly - You Play A Wonderful Game
Lou-Lou Marina - You Are My Paradise
Mara Nell - Rain Man
Martina Dry - September In The Rain
Nikita Jr. - Bandido Guy
