I'll include thsi label only because I really liked thier style and they could have expanded to a better competetive label.This song quickly was forgotten in that Eurobeat graveyard that was Europanic. Again catchy keyboard riffs and nice vocals should have pushed this one up to better status.
Holy God am I glad I'm not the only person that noticed this. Europanic more or less cursed every single label and artist that appeared on it. :cry:

Another one from me:

Lolita / Sexy Lover Sexy Night

This is an absolute gem of a Lolita song, and criminally it has just 2:15 on Euromach 12 to its credit, yet it easily dwarfs most of the songs Lolita did in the mainstream SEB season in the 110s/120s (though "dwarf" is such a harsh term given how outstanding Lolita's stuff usually is).

Some obvious choices for me...

ROCK ME TONIGHT / Electric Rock Band (Vibration)
- my favourite SEB track...ever! Such power and a mega catchy hook - the best Vibration ever had in their brief spell on SEB.

2LOVE, 4LOVE / Pamsy feat. Ace (SCP)
- my introduction to the wonder of Pamsy! This track was on the first complete SEB album that I ever got, and it immediately grabbed me by the ears, swung me around and I've never come down! The song that all Eurobeat ballads strive to live up to in my eyes, and a STUNNING guitar solo!!

NIGHT FLIGHT TO TOKYO / Matt Land (A-Beat C)
- so much more than just a track from an IIDX game. This is definitely one of the most energetic and electric tracks that the A-Beat C males have ever released - stunning!!

TURBO NIGHT / Francis Cooper (Hi-NRG Attack)
- what a travesty that this track has never seen the light of day outwith the Euromach series. This is one of those rare tracks where the verse melody actually rivals the chorus and synth hook from sheer catchiness and brilliance - more of this please!!

IT'S MY LIFE / Dusty (SCP)
- very cruelly overlooked so many times, perhaps due to the fact that it sat in the shadow of the mighty Emotions on SEB 153, but this track had an awesome simple piano hook and a really cute feel.

CONTROL ALT DELETE AND BLOW / Jeff Driller (Hi-NRG Attack)
- a lot of people can't stand this track, but I still think it has one of the best HRG synth hooks EVER. The best frantic male-led HRG track to be featured on SEB and still sounding great today!!

TAKE ANOTHER CHANCE / Van T.K (SCP)
- another SCP track that I feel never gets any love cos apparently it's too "weak" or "soppy" or whatever. All I know is it has a fantastic disco vibe, a powerful synth hook and a great sing-a-long chorus. Nuff said :)

Ah!!

I'm so glad you reminded me of Black Roses! I used to love that song but haven't heard it in years! Wow.

That's what I meant. It seemed that it hadn't yet clicked to your head that Rocky is a Nicola Mansueto alias, not an Ennio Zanini one.

Jeff Driller -- Oh Oh Cowboy

GOLD. Just... pure excellence. The vocals are smooth in the verses and prechorus, and frantic enough in the chorus to pump you up, then-- BAM! The synth line just EXPLODES!

...too bad it was only released on T&F2.

At the time it was made, I don't think AVEX really had a chance to release it. According to the catalogue, it was produced between the end of the Euromach era and their debut on SEB 141. If Hi-NRG Attack were introduced to Super Eurobeat sooner (the beginning of the 130's, not the 140's, as it should've been), I'm sure Oh Oh Cowboy would've been more than welcome to appear on SEB 136, but there was absolutely nowhere to promote it and by the time the label returned to SEB, a hoarde of newer songs had already been produced.

Great song, but wouldn't you rather have the I-Tunes extended than the SEB edit? I sure am!:D

Gotta add to the list:

Play Loud / Go 2 - I'm horrified this never appeared on a Super Eurobeat album, especially with the disturbing lack of Go 2 throughout the 170's. Even though the Initial D sample didn't blow me away, having heard the full version I got to say I was immensely impressed. With the exception of the ending fadeout, there's really not a single thing I dislike about it.

Maybe I made a mistake ,but there is a Stephy Martini song that contains the "Dream ON" melody in the hook. "Dream On" being a classic Aerosmith song from the 70's. Rockers would relate 8)
