"Hypnotized" is the first original recording by Shanadoo. Previously Shanadoo's works have been Japanese covers of songs by the German dance act E-Rotic. The single also contains another song entitled "Heart to Heart", cover of E-Rotic's "Test My Best". "Hypnotized" already was released in the Japanese Version of their album Welcome to Tokyo. The single failed to catch much attention and peaked at a disappoining number 54 on the German top 100 singles chart. It managed also to chart in Austria, charting at 64. It is also featured on the new European re-release of the album Welcome to Tokyo and on Shanadoo's 2nd album The Symbol.
