Tanpopo (Single Version) (たんぽぽ (Single Version); Dandelion (Single Version)) is the third single by Tanpopo. It is a re-cut single (released after the album), and has different lyrics, difference in arrangement and vocal. It was released on June 16, 1999 as a 8cm CD. First press came with one out of four trading cards. It reached #7 on the Japan Oricon charts, charting for six weeks, selling 53,970 copies in its first week and 112,320 copies total.

The track Tanpopo (Single Version), was used as the ending theme to "Warauinu no Seikatsu", a comedy program on Fuji TV.

Unlike other Tanpopo singles, the song was first featured on their debut album before being released as a re-cut single. Tsunku said in an interview that one of his staff had listened to the album for nearly hundreds of times, and suggested to select and release the song Tanpopo as a single. In the music industry, they believe that a single that was selected from a previous album won’t do well in the market, compared newly produced single. Staff was well aware of this reality and yet still suggested it, which made Tsunku feel their warm affection towards the artist and the song.
