The ones I can think of at the top of my mind are "Gravity Error" from Triggerheart Exelica Enhanced, "Fly" from Otomedius Excellent, "Hoshikuzu Garandou" from DoDonPachi SaiDaiOuJou (Aya Hirano sounds like she's channeling her inner Haruhi Suzumiya when she sings), "Freedom" from Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours, and "Brave the Sky" from Bullet Soul: Infinite Burst.

I can't understand a single word, but Shining Eyes sure is beautiful

My first time playing Twin Eagle at an arcade, that song came on and it blew my mind so much I game over'd instantly.

Super happy to see someone mention this one. My only complaint is the boss where this plays is over very quickly so you don't normally hear much of the song in-game.

Dunno if you want to count it, but the vocal version of Guwange's stage 3 song (soundtrack only) is nice. Creepy lyrics too.

Really fits the tone for a final battle. That music reminds me of Time Crisis 4's final boss theme.

Psycho Soldier isn't really a shmup, though...

That's what you think, man. I sent a letter to SNK headquarters in 1988 asking whether or not I could call Psycho Soldier's theme song a "vocal theme song in a shmup", and three agonizing months later I finally got a reply in the mail confirming that it was indeed a vocal theme song in a shmup.

The wait was worth it.

I had misheard the lyrics as "War! War! War! Gonna break you down! Terrorism, you sleaze!" That would make sense after reading the ending text.
Actually it's "Wah wah wah, I'm gonna bring you down! The tables will turn around, you'll see!".

Arrange version of "Early Warning"
This is a long version of that theme, at a bit over 4 minutes. Amazing.

For some reason that Twin Cobra II music reminds me of "Shakedown" from the movie Beverly Hills Cop II. Or "Who'll Be the Hero", the first stage theme from the Konami beat 'em up Violent Storm.

second the one in the christmas Deathsmiles too, and I had a hard time even to think of one vocal theme.
Not many out there, it seems

Glad you think so. Especially considering Aya Hirano is a good singer.

Oh, that song is awesome. I can't think of other vocal songs in shmups, though...

What, no karaoke stage from Game Tengoku (though I've always had a soft spot for that one's OP as well)? Not to mention the loads of cheese from Geppy-X?

Geppy-X needs to be in Super Robot Wars. Like now. And who's that singer, by the way? He's awesome, but I think I heard him somewhere before.

Playing the extra stage of IKUSAAAAAAAN! reminded me of this thread.

The level 4 theme from DDP Daifukkatsu Black Label... some heavy womp womp music with heavy male vocals. "The war is here. Is there no one out there?" Or something. I like that one.

But yeah, Deathsmiles II soundtrack is one of my faves in general. And Vissionerz is dope.
