Singles (Page 2)


Please choose a CD single below. New singles are always displayed on the first page.

There are two ways you can sample the songs:

1) HTML: This is the original way I had it set up, where you'll have to manually download and listen to each file. Also, if you hover over the links, you'll see the kanji title of each song.

2) Flash Player: This flash player will let you listen to each sample in REAL TIME. (^^) Occasionally you can choose between different playlists (especially if the CD is a remake/tribute to another artist's work).

Here's a quick summary of how the flash player works (image opens in a new window)

Click on the 'Lyrics' icon to access the lyrics. ALL lyrics will open in ONE popup (i.e.: all of the lyrics share the same popup). This way, you won't have a TON of popups open. Besides, you can't read two lyrics at the same time, right? (^^) But if you want to open the lyrics in more than one window, feel free to right-click the links and choose "Open in New Window".

Lastly, to make the pages load faster, the singles have been split into several pages (hence why I alternated/color-coded the links).

rumble fish
(CD Single #5)

CD+DVD/CD cover
+Produced by: avex trax
+Catalogue #: AVCD-30134
+Release Date: August 2, 2000


+More Info:
This is their 5th single, and the fourth (of 6 singles) to have 7 tracks. This is also their last CD to (intentionally) have songs named after famous musicians.

The title track, "rumble fish", is named after a British pop group. There's also a Korean group, a book, and a movie with the same name.

And supposedly, there's an American (Seattle, Washington) band named "Welcome". ^^

We are.
(CD Single #6)

CD cover
+Produced by: avex trax
+Catalogue #: AVCD-30168
+Release Date: November 29, 2000


+More Info:
This is their 6th CD single, and the fifth (of 6 singles) to have 7 tracks. Tomiko Van wrote the lyrics for the title track, "We are."

"SUMMER DAYS [8.27 Live]" was recorded on August 27, 2000 (8.27.2000), at their "Summer Event Live 2000" concert series. Do As Infinity performed 7 songs at each concert.

Also...is it just me, or does Van look VERY similar to Miho Komatsu, another J-Pop artist (who also has a website on The GlobeMoon Network)?:

Desire
(CD Single #7)

CD cover
+Produced by: avex trax
+Catalogue #: AVCD-30192
+Release Date: January 24, 2001


+More Info:
This is their 7th CD single, and the last one to have 7 tracks. (^_^) The second track, "CARNAVAL", is the Spanish spelling for "Carnival".

"Desire" and "CARNAVAL" have the exact same melody, but a different arrangement and tempo. A member of DAIForum (named "Ogawa") explains more:

"During street live performances back in 1999, 'M-42' [the demo name for 'Desire/CARNAVAL'] was often played by acoustic style although it did not have a title yet.

On November 22, 1999, 'M-42' was played by band-style with different lyrics. While Team Do As was waiting for the timing of the release of the song, they came up with another version of 'M-42' which was 'CARNAVAL' with some Latin/Spanish spices. Finally, they made up the final version of 'M-42' and released it as 'Desire' in January 2001 together with 'CARNAVAL' as the coupling song."

Tooku Made
(CD Single #8)

CD cover DVD cover
+Produced by: avex trax
+Catalogue #: AVCD-30241 [CD], AVBD-91055 [DVD]
+Release Date: April 25, 2001


+More Info:
This is their 8th single; the title track was written by Ryo Owatari. (^^) A separate DVD was also released for this single, and it has only one track: the PV/music video for "Tooku Made".

As for the CD single...unfortunately, it only has 4 tracks. (T__T) Why they suddenly decided to use the "standard" CDS format (i.e.: "2 songs + both karaoke") is beyond me. Maybe they figured all those bonus tracks were needed to promote the band, but since they've gotten popular there's no need for any "extra songs"? =\
