Daytona USA (デイトナUSA) is a racing game released in arcades in 1994 by Sega and was the debut title for the Sega Model 2. The game features the race car dubbed the Hornet, and allows a choice of three tracks to race on: a beginner, advanced and expert. The game is considered one of the most successful arcade games of all time, and still maintains its popularity today with the success of updated ports on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in 2009.

Music

Takenobu Mitsuyoshi sure is an interesting fellow; not only did he compose the music to the game, he also provides the lyrics to each of the songs. In fact, most people probably remember the music in this game just because of its incredibly Engrish vocals, but Mitsuyoshi's voice adds some sort of strange charm to the soundtrack that makes it even better. There's only a few full tracks in the game, but they're already incredibly catchy in their own right and provide the perfect atmosphere for a high-paced game like Daytona USA.

Please note that tracks 04.2, 07.2, 10.2, 13.2 and 18 through 40 are short jingles that play after entering your name (should you actually do well enough in a race to do so) as the initials given as the song title. 18 through 40 are officially named on the B-univ*DAYTONA USA album, and the four short versions of each track theme are part of the 19th track, "All of Name Entry" on the Let's Go Away The Video Game DAYTONA USA Anniversary Box, which is just a collection of all of these tracks. Because the four track theme variations aren't named, they can't be counted as officially named even though if they were given an official name it would probably just be the in-game initials like all of the other tracks.
