"Cha-La Head-Cha-La" is a song performed by Hironobu Kageyama and is his fifteenth single. The split single CD, coupled with the song "Detekoi Tobikiri Zenkai Power!" by Manna, released under Nippon Columbia's Columbia Records label on May 1, 1999.

It was the first opening theme song of the TV anime series Dragon Ball Z, the second TV anime adaptation of Akira Toriyama's famous manga series Dragon Ball. The song covering the Saiyan Saga to the end of the Cell Saga of the anime. The song has numerous cover versions done by other artists (including the cover version by Flow that was used as the ending theme song for the 2013 anime movie Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.) and even has the English versions.

It was first introduced into the Taiko no Tatsujin games as an Anime-genre song with Taiko no Tatsujin 5 on the arcade side and Taiko no Tatsujin: Appare! Sandaime on the console side.

Unique to this song is that some entries in the Taiko no Tatsujin games, specifically Taiko no Tatsujin 8 through Taiko no Tatsujin 13, Taiko no Tatsujin Portable and Meccha! Taiko no Tatsujin DS: Great Adventure of the Seven Islands!, used the newly-recorded master audio performed by Kageyama, originally made for Tobikkiri! Anime Special Dai Nesshu Utamatsuri original soundtrack. Other entries in the series used the cover version.

Lyrics

Please be aware that the following is for the short version that was made for Taiko no Tatsujin games.

Japanese Kanji Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
光る雲を突き抜けFly Away(Fly Away)
体中に 広がるパノラマ
顔を 蹴られた地球が怒って (怒って)
火山を爆発させる
Hikaru Kumo wo Tsukinuke FURAI AWEI (FURAI AWEI)
Karadajuu ni Hirogaru PANORAMA
Kao wo Kerareta Chikyuu ga Okotte (Okotte)
Kazan wo Bakuhatsu Saseru
Breaking through the shining clouds, fly away (fly away)
The panorama broadens throughout the bodies.
Kicked in the face, the Earth gets angry (angry),
Making volcanoes explode.
溶けた北極こおりの中に
恐竜が居たら 玉乗り仕込みたいね
Toketa Koori no Naka ni
Kyouryuu ga Itara Tamanori Shikomitai ne
Right in the melted ice of North Pole,
If there's a dinosaur, I'll train it to balance it on the ball.
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
何が起きても 気分はへのへの河童
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
胸がパチパチするほど
騒ぐ元気玉...Sparking!
CHARA HECCHARA
Nani ga Okite mo Kibun wa Henoheno Kappa
CHARA HECCHARA
Mune ga PACHIPACHI suru hodo
Sawagu Genki Dama...SUPĀKINGU!
Cha-La Head-Cha-La
Whatever happens to the feelings of a moody kappa.
Cha-La Head-Cha-La
As long as my heart beats loud,
Shouting out Genki Dama...Sparking!
