This remix was created using only elements from the multitrack recording.
I have always loved this song and thought that underneath the aggressive drums, there was a beautiful melody and almost symphonic undertone to the piece. I was drawing on the production sensibility of Trevor Horn when I undertook this and arranged the remix accordingly, almost as though it were The Power Of Love — an instrumental first half, beginning only with the strings, gradually adding other elements and playing the whole arrangement through once before starting again at the beginning with the vocal version. I resequenced the drums to play at half the speed of the original and didn’t bring them full on until the very last minute. This is one of the tribute remixes I am most happy with.
