1) What was your first DCT experience?

In either mid/late '92/early '93, I asked a Japanese pen pal to send me a mixtape of what was popular in Japan at the time.
The first three songs on her mixtape were songs from "Swinging Star". The very first song I heard was "Kessen wa kin'youbi". The 70s vibe from "Kessen" was very much my speed and Miwa's voice was sensational...knew I'd found a new fave band :)

2) What's your fave DCT song?

"Sankyu"...DCT & David T. at their best :)

3) What's your fave DCT album?

Even to this day, I go back and forth between "Magic" and "Wonder 3"...both perfect albums :)

4) What your fave DCT video?

Split between "Snow Dance" & "Asa ga mata kuru". Love the one-shot feel of "Snow Dance" and the inventiveness & vibrance of "Asa ga mata kuru"

5) If you've seen DCT in concert, give us your fave moment

Wonderland 2011 (Tokyo)...watching Miwa & Masa walk down the stadium steps from a few feet away after they had just lit the Olympic flame... :)

1) What was your first DCT experience?
Early January 2001. During a short break in Tokyo whilst visiting family in Hong Kong over Christmas and New Year. I'm browsing in Tower Records, Shinjuku Tokyo when Ureshii! Tanoshii! Daisuki! is played in store. Fascinated by this track, I ask a clerk what record is this. He hands me a copy of The Soul: Dreams Come True Greatest Hits. That's how it started.

2) What's your fave DCT song?
It's still Ureshii! Tanoshii! Daisuki! Amazing to think it was never release as a single. The piano-only single version of Suki is a close second.

3) What's your fave DCT album?
Monkey Girl Odyssey, featuring a slew of under appreciated gems like Omoide No Kamisama and Suki Suki Suu as well as great singles like Snow Dance and Kanon

4) What your fave DCT video?
Asa ga mata kuru. It's what you'd expect a Japanese music video to look like. Still seeking an explanation as to was is being said at the start of the Kanon video, though!

5) If you've seen DCT in concert, give us your fave moment
The first time I saw DCT live, in Osaka, March 2005 during the Diamond 15 tour. They opened with Asahi No Senrei, which segwayed into Kessen Wa Kin'youbi. Two songs in and the expense of getting here was justified.

At the beginning of 'Kanon,' Masa says he is running low on power, and it's very dangerous. Niehya agrees, saying he got lost the previous day while driving in the town and was afraid he would stop completely because he was low on power. Masa asks Niehya to wind him up, and Niehya complies.

Happy Anniversary to DCT!!

1) What was your first DCT experience?

I was a Sonic fan as a kid, then around 2001, somewhere online I found out that the Sonic 2 ending song originally had lyrics and came from a Japanese band, whose bassist composed the songs for Sonic 1 and 2. I promptly listened to it (Sweet Sweet Sweet), loved it, I was hooked. (But in the end my first DCT experience was the Sonic 1 soundtrack, and I had no idea :lol: )

2) What's your fave DCT song?

It's hard to pick one, but I think it's 24/7

3) What's your fave DCT album?

monkey girl odissey!

4) What your fave DCT video?

Snow Dance! It was the first DCT PV I downloaded (which took ages back then) and I still love it to bits. Can't believe I went to Japan and didn't visit the Snow Dance route :lol:

5) If you've seen DCT in concert, give us your fave moment

The entire concert blew me away, but I think it was Miwa flying on a bike singing Ring! Ring! Ring! :lol:

A "Your DCT Experience (30th anniversary edition)" short questionnaire? :)

1) What was your first DCT experience?

I was searching for random JPOP back in 2002 then I found one single MP3 file for Itsu no ma ni. It was the ONLY DCT song on the website, I was hooked! Yet it took me a few months to realize that DCT did the soundtrack for Sonic. I spend SO much time playing Sonic so I basically flipped out listening to Sweet Sweet Sweet :lol:

2) What's your fave DCT song?

Snow Dance. It took me months on end practicing it at the karaoke but after much trying, now I can sing the entire song.

3) What's your fave DCT album?

Swinging Star. I mean Sweet Sweet Sweet and Namida to Tatakatteru. Enough said :D

4) What your fave DCT video?

24/7. It was the first one I have ever seen.

Ever listen to Facing West by Pat Metheny? The sound of Sankyu is totally based on it!
