Level design

Daniwell (or DaniwellP) is a songwriter, designer, web engineer and 3D artist based in Japan, and is famous for his song Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya! (commonly referred to as Nyan Cat).

This question is based on tracks in his discography with full English names. A part of the melody in the song is shown in the question. The tricky part of the question is that a song would have different names based on the time it was arranged, especially for the most famous one – Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya!. Due to its popularity, it is more commonly referred to as Nyan Cat, even by the author himself in his subsequent albums/remixes. With that, the original name is rather less known.

The question is asking for the earliest name of the song, which was shown in a sample question showing AI YUENI instead of AI YUENI [Another Mix]

The melody shown on the piano rolls are based on UST/VST/MIDI files of respective songs found online.

Here is a summary of the songs used in this level:

Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya! (Buy, Niconico)
LET’S TYPE! (Flash game, YouTube, Niconico)
AI YUENI (Buy, YouTube, Niconico)
CATS RULE THE WORLD (Buy, YouTube, Niconico)

The fact that only the first title is not in all caps is purely a coincidence (because I can’t find MIDI/UST files for any other songs with title in English).

Expected thought process

Realize the question is a piano roll. Play the melody (nohint+) or search for the answers in sample questions (1sample+) to find out that the question is asking for a song title of Daniwell. Find out the song name from the melody and use it as the answer.
