I like the anime Initial D quite a bit, it's about street racing. Anyway, the soundtrack for it is mostly eurobeat, and it's how I got introduced to eurobeat. There's not been many bites for eurobeat or Initial D in prior threads I made, but I figure I'll try again. What are everyone's favorite songs from Initial D?

Mine are from Battle Stage:

My other most favorite is from First Stage:

I would have to go for 'Night of Fire' from the arcade game, my fave racing game of all time (alongside Mario Kart 64). The live action Initial D movie is great as well and just so happens to have two completly diiffrent sountracks you can select from how cool is that :0)

Hiya, "Night of Fire" is a cool song. It was really popular in Japan, and a few J-pop covers got made of it. Off the top of my head, Hinoi Team and Dream made covers of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9ALaS8lHGM Hinoi Team, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Prq68rNjRKc Dream. I think the Dream version is better than the Hinoi Team.

I actually didn't know that the Initial D live action movie had multiple soundtracks, but I only watched it in Cantonese. Plus the music wasn't eurobeat or J-pop... The Initial D live action movie was weird. It wasn't like, say, Dragonball Evolution or something, but they definitely took some...weird...artistic liberties. Like making Bunta into an alcoholic person who constantly beats Takumi, whereas in the anime/manga, he's just an all-round cool guy.

I never played the arcade game, as there's like no arcades near me except in the casinos that have it where I live. I'd have to drive like 40 minutes to play it. I did play it for PS2, though, and liked it. I do have AE86s in every racing game I play, though. I also own a MKII Supra, which I bought because of Initial D. I might have a bit of an Initial D obsession.

Some more ID songs I like:
Initial D - Impact Blue
The Spiders from Mars - Fly Me To the Moon and Back
Queen of Times - Ever and Ever

Slower song, but amazing, was the Second Stage ending.
Galla - Kimi Ga Iru

Sorry, this might be an obsession. At one point I had like 130+ Super Eurobeat albums, and all the Initial D OSTs. I like eurobeat a lot, though, it's so good at conveying emotion. I mean, it's not super complex music or anything, but I just love it.

Oh well, sorry for my late reply, but I'm happy someone else here likes Initial D and ID music!

I like a lot of Initial D music, even own one of the soundtracks so it's hard to pick favorites.

I like a lot of the songs.
Eurobeat was so far outside of my radar before I watched Initial D.
