Albums vs. CD Singles

A lot of songs tend to have remixes, or "special" versions (orgel/musicbox version, Mandarin Version, etc). Some of Van's songs are the same way. (^^) Please note that this page will ONLY focus on songs where Tomiko Van is the original artist. This also includes certain song collaborations (example: "Drive me nuts"). All excluded songs (example: "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes") will be listed in the Albums, Singles, or Collaborations page.

On this page, you'll be able to hear each version of the song, side by side. If there are really subtle (or extreme) differences, I'll explain them to you as well. (^^) That said, here's how this page works:
  1. Click on a song title. Its information will load in the iFrame below.
  2. There are two ways you can sample the songs (NOTE: this explanation is slightly different from the Discography pages!):

    1) HTML Version: This is the original way I had it set up, where you'll have to manually download and listen to each file. Also, listed next to each version/MP3 is the length of the FULL song (in mm:ss format).

         That said: If the time on your CD/MP3 is a bit longer or shorter, your file should be fine. However, if your song is more than 10 seconds off, you might have the wrong file OR your file is incomplete/messed up.

    2) Flash Player: This flash player will let you listen to each sample in REAL TIME. ^^

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