This article is for the musical theme "Blazed up Melpomene" and its subsequent update and remix.
Arcade version[edit | edit source]
Console version[edit | edit source]
"Blazed up Melpomene" was later updated for the home console releases of Dead or Alive 2. Appearing in also the DOA2: Hardcore games, Dead or Alive 2 Ultimate, and Dead or Alive Online, the theme was once again used as the theme for Helena. It also appeared in Dead or Alive 4 (as "Blazed Up Melpomene") when Helena fights against La Mariposa in her Story Mode.
It is this version of the theme that has been used again throughout the series rather than the original arcade version.
Helena (or Blazed Up Melpomene) Remix[edit | edit source]
The theme was later remixed as "Helena Remix" and first appeared in Dead or Alive 2 Ultimate. It is heard while the player is fighting against Helena in the Ray House.
Lyrics[edit | edit source]
French[edit | edit source]
Qui sème le vent récolte la tempête.
Les pots fêlés sont ceux qui durent le plus.
A chaque jour suffit sa peine, chacun trouve chaussure à son pied.
Direct English translation[edit | edit source]
The one who sows the wind will harvest the storm.
The cracked pots are the ones that have been there the longest.
Every day has enough pain, everyone finds shoes for their feet.
