Young Patrick Klip Klop sang an E-Rotic track. That's the biggest highlight for me.

He was so buzzed recording those intros.

Good on you for flying your gamer geek flag, Patrick. I'm 35 so I am just old enough that video cameras were still hard to come by as a teen, otherwise I'd have a very similar collection...

I totally saved up my money back in like 2001 and got DDR Konamix and a couple of official pads to use on our family PS2 and was way stoked by the idea of the game...but never ended up getting that into it. The stuff just seemed beyond me, especially with how much I wanted to play it anyway. And we got a Disney game at one point for it too. Don't know if we still have those somewhere or not and I really don't care.

Really fun to see how into it young Patrick was. Ridiculous. Haha thanks for sharing.

Do It All Night and Happy Man. Those were definitely two of the most memorable songs of those games in arcades!

Next to Butterfly, Captain Jack, and Dynamite Rave, of course. Still, Do It All Night is the song I immediately associate with the dance game boom, as it was the song most teen girls picked every time once they started getting into it. At least, that was the case in the arcades where I went to (mainly London and various holiday camps in south-east England).

As for Happy Man, I can still picture the 'music video' (or elaborate animated gif?) for that song. It definitely included a wacky-looking happy man rocking out on a guitar.

I felt like I just watched a clip show of "Boy Meets World." Not saying you looked like the main character from that show, but you kind of did. Ha ha, Patrick you keep doing what you do man, but I wished you also had some Beat Mania stuff. Man that game was fun, now to go listen to "20, November" and scratch that nostalgia itch.

@caleb1915: When people specify they need to avoid something for a medical reason it generally means that contact with said thing will literally make them (potentially severely) sick, not just that they don't like the flavor, and depending on the severity of their condition they might in fact even die simply by getting a tiny amount of the substance inside their body.

Patrick was young at the time and it seems he regretted it quite a bit since he still remembers it now, which is good, because what he did at the time is genuinely a dangerous and irresponsible thing that could easily hurt somebody and get his workplace sued for that matter.

Haven't found it yet! I suspect I've located the right pile of tapes, though. Just need to digitize.
