First known for their 'acid' techno touch (think 'Twilight Zone', 'No Limit' or 'The Magic Friend'), 2 Unlimited started to focus on radio airplay with their previous single ('Faces'). If that 'acid' touch was working well in clubs, radio standards needed a softer approach. Up to then, radio stations were reluctant to play 2 Unlimited on daytime radio because of the sound, considered too 'hard' by some listeners.
The story continued on 'Maximum Overdrive', also remodeled upon 'softer' Eurodance components for it's single release. You can clearly hear the difference between the album version (track 3) and the other commercial mixes, bad and totally unnecessary.
Another notable difference is the end of the track. On the album, it ends with car breaks. On the radio and Extended versions, a crash was added. Intended 'moral' about clubbing and drunk driving? Who knows.
Many DJ's (such as MC Mario in Montreal) preferred to play the album version (easy to mix: it begins with an acapella and ends with breaks). I think it's the only potential reason to own this single.
