If I understand this correctly, "Frozen Beach" was released by P-Model in 1984 and again in 1989, then covered by Mr. Hirasawa on his first solo album in 1989, and subsequently remixed by P-Model in 1995. O_o What a song. My favorite is the super-techno version from Scuba Recycle in 1995. This song made me realize that--like in "Venus" or maybe "Mermaid Song"--Hirasawa really does use the motif of drowning/being submerged in water as the way to meet with "you" again fairly often. Interesting.
