"Take You For A Ride" (also known as the "Character Select" music from Marvel vs. Capcom 2) is a frequently ripped track on the SiIvaGunner channel.

Summary

"Take You For A Ride" is a jazzy 8 second loop composed by Tetsuya Shibata and/or Mitsuhiko Takano for the game Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes[1] and used for the character selection screen. It prominently features an unknown woman singing "I wanna take you for a ride!".

It has been reused in the sequel, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds[2] (and its updated rerelease Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3) in three remixes: "Traditional Mix", "Rock Mix" and "Dance Mix", all arranged by Hideyuki Fukasawa (composer for the Street Fighter series since Street Fighter IV).

The track quickly became an iconic piece of the MvC series due to its catchy but rapidly annoying nature and nonsensical lyrics - presumably an audio sample misinterpreted by the Japanese developers.

Rips

See Category: Take You For A Ride

The first "Take You For A Ride" rip uploaded on the SiIvaGunner channel was Character Select - Marvel vs. Capcom 2, a mashup with "Gentleman" by PSY. There are currently 12 high quality rips of "Take You For A Ride" on the channel, 11 of them being the original "Character Select" from MvC2 and the last one being the "Dance Mix" from UMvC3.

The rips are usually pretty long (around 9 minutes) to reflect the original repetitive nature of the song, the big champions being Character Select (CD Version) - Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Character Select (Extended Mix) - Marvel vs. Capcom 2 respectively clocking at 30 minutes and 1 hour. It became tradition since Character Select (Beta Mix) - Marvel vs. Capcom 2 to modify the logo of the game to something else, usually reflecting the joke.
