A couple of soundbites can be heard.
Song Connections / Remixes
- GAMBOL's Double charts sound different from its Single charts.
- A remix of GAMBOL by D.F.K. Soundsystem, titled GAMBOL (dfk SLC rmx), can be found in SOUND VOLTEX BOOTH.
- GAMBOL received LIGHT charts in beatmania IIDX 2nd style. These charts were not kept when the song was revived in beatmania IIDX 9th style.
- It received new NORMAL charts again in beatmania IIDX 12 HAPPY SKY.
- GAMBOL is notorious for having an extremely small timing window, leading many players to score horribly on it. It was never fixed until the release of beatmania IIDX 12 HAPPY SKY, in which the song has regular timing windows on NORMAL and the usual tiny ones on HYPER. In beatmania IIDX 19 Lincle, an engine change made the timing on the HYPER chart easier.
- In beatmania IIDX 11 IIDX RED CS, GAMBOL was given ANOTHER charts, identical to the NORMAL and HYPER charts, but rated at Level 8+. The reason for this is because its timing windows are set so that it's nearly impossible to get anything other than a JUST GREAT or a BAD on the song. The timing pattern for the HYPER/ANOTHER charts were later added as a secret for beatmania IIDX 15 DJ TROOPERS CS.
- The word "gambol" is both a verb and a noun. It means to skip around as if dancing or playing. It can also mean to frolic. Look it up here.
