I remember buying this dirt cheap and it wasn't worth more than that. The nitty gritty was that 2 Unlimited was cheese but funny cheese and to this day people still mock Ray Slijngaard's 'lyrics'. But 2 Unlimited 2.0 was awful, musically it didn't have the hits that De Coster & Wilde could write and the vocalists were trying to be more than what they were but fell flat on their musical abilities. Not to mention that one of them had this annoying tendency to try to diva-scream like in this track.

This track was probably the best in the second phase of 2 Unlimited and that isn't saying a lot. Perpetual Motion's version is strongest on this and implements some acid twisting, not much vocal use but still a bit too much. For the other mixes Milk Inc. delves into cliches and Phil Wilde beefs up the original.

Andy Janssen aka AJ Duncan/X-Out does the most off kilter version on this. Andy Janssen's remixes on 2 Unlimited, CB Milton and a few others were the secret weapon on most singles as they were quite cracking. On this track Janssen keeps the one vocal line from the original that is tolerable and works it over some funky big beat-sounding breaks. Not on par with the remixes of 'It's A Loving Thing' and 'Maximum Overdrive' but decent stuff.
