Information

"Body Feels EXIT" is the debut solo single recorded by Amuro Namie. This is her first release since leaving former group the SUPER MONKEYS and their label Toshiba-EMI and signing with avex trax; SUPER MONKEYS' final two singles: "Taiyou no SEASON" and "Stop the music" were billed solely as Amuro Namie. The week prior to this release, her old label released the compilation DANCE TRACKS VOL.1. "Body Feels EXIT" is Amuro's first time working with producer Komuro Tetsuya, who would go one to be her key collaborator until 2001. Much like her last releases with the SUPER MONKEYS the song is a Eurobeat-styled dance song. The single was released in 8cm CD and vinyl record formats. The song was used as the Taito X-55 commercial theme.

Over 22 years later, Amuro re-recorded "Body Feels EXIT" for her final compilation album, Finally, in which it was released as a separate digital single and served as the theme song to the NTV drama Miss Devil.

"Body Feels EXIT" is often noted as having one of the most unfortunate Engrish song titles in J-Pop history. Since its release, it has been covered by many artists such as Eurobeat artist Virginelle and Japanese pop singers ANZA, Tanaka Reina, and E-Girls. The only other version of this song by Amuro is the "Latin House Mix" found on her debut solo album SWEET 19 BLUES. The "Original Mix" was later featured on the 181920 best-of album.
