Takenobu Mitsuyoshi is such a criminally underrated composer and singer at Sega, and I figured it'd only be right to start the batch of themed requests around him with the first big music track he is known best known for, Lets Go Away (given "Game Over, Yeah!!" is more of a jingle, which is indeed from Daytona USA).The main difference of this rendition of the song has from the ones in the games is extra lyrics to it and Mitsuyoshi having so much dang fun with it.The game itself was a major achievement as it was a game sporting Dreamcast level visuals in 1993 and is on record as the first 3D game running at 60fps.
This song and this rendition is pure, distilled hype, adrenaline and happiness.
This song NEVER fails to make me smile.
This song is in my head for the rest of the day now.
Obviously this is a live, more recent performance, but check out the immense effort this man had to go through to get his vocals on the arcade version of the original game. He sampled his own voice because there wasn't reliable storage fo CD quality audio at the time
Takenobu Mitsuyoshi is such a treasure, perfect human
Honestly one of the best VGM songs of all time, it's been on my playlist for years and it never fails to get me pumped
I haven't heard this in a while but I absolutely love this song so much and the singer is so good and has such awesome energy.
In case you were wondering – it's like 99.9% likely that Takenobu is the 'Game Over Yeah' guy, as that's from Sega Rally Championship 1995 – which he composed!
Burning Rangers is epic as well
God this song is such a bop every time I hear it and it never fails to get suck in my head and put a smile.
I worked in an Arcade when this system/song was part of the attract mode of the Arcade cabinet of this game. It's a great song, but hearing 'DAAAAYTOOONA' every time the attract mode looped every five minutes or so for an 8 hour shift has BURNED THIS SONG INTO MY BRAIN. I still twitch when I hear it, although this is a great version of it that doesn't quite set me off.
But yeah – as great as this song is, I can't hear it without flinching.
Oh shit, memories of me playing in the arcade for this one
Daytona USA isn't a game, it's an experience
I miss racing tunes like this. xD
Spent a lot of quarters on that thing back in the day.
quick, a patron, recommend Ridge Racer Type 4 ASAP, open the arcade racing game OST floodgates
 specifically Move Me, too!
This guy actually made a bunch of underrated remixes of Street Fighter themes and is the guy responsible for the excellent F-Zero Melody from Smash Ultimate. He is excellent.
The "Game Over Yeah" thing is from Sega Rally but it's the same guy (Takenobi Mitsuyoshi). If you ever walked into an arcade, chances are you heard "DAYYYYYTOOOONAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" from the attract mode of Daytona USA. Also this cover always makes me so happy
Wow this man was a blast to watch! So into it and so fun. And of course the song itself was a fun listen 😀
I've never heard this before until now I and I feel like I've been cheated in life.
The amount of fun the singer is having is just contagious! That made me smile the whole way through
Wow what a classic! Super throwback! So glad I subscribed
Please react to heavy day guilty gear xrd
This song just slaps right out the gate, every time I hear it it puts me in a good mood!
If you enjoy Takenobu Mitsuyoshi's energy, definitely check out "Desert Replay" from Sega Rally Championship. The entire song is pretty much just him rocking a synth keyboard and piano with powerful funk energy. His personality shines right through it.
Also the arcade version of let's go away is WILDLY different than this, if you enjoyed this definitely check out the other version!!
