The original "Passion" was and still is a powerful piece of house music. Classic is beyond words, vintage track. Blows ones mind,or did!.

A true classic of the era....remember the tune just building and building... with the dove creeping up your spine until the piano kicks in and then strobe lights hit the back of your mind. Beautiful

A True ballad of Progressive House Music Do You Want It Right Now is an oustanding piece of music. Many of times ive gone off my nut dancing to this track. Eeeeeasy now tiger!

"Passion (Naked Mix)" is a strong track from 90's. Definitely a power fuel for any progressive-house dancefloor, even today.

The definitive progressive house track from when it all started. This is a superb dance track, iconic and enduring.

The naked mix has to be the one everyone knows and simply the best, from the intro and then the bass line passion is so distinctive. It was one of those tunes that as soon as it was dropped everyone smiled and knew it was time for an extra effort on the dance floor. From the bass line to the piano this tune just rocks, building throughout. None of the remixes throughout the years have really match the naked mix other than adding a different dimension, but with such a great memorable tune it’s a tough job.

Classic dance tune and a crying shame that someone felt the need to release a crass Degrees In Motion acapella mix over it. Often overlooked is the Darren Emerson mix, more percussion than the Naked mix and this makes it sound great at volume in a large venue, a long build up which is quite tricky to mix but it really lifts off when the beat kicks in, a nice acidic breakdown three-quarters of the way through and lifts off again into an atmospheric close. Classic Emerson stuff.

Passion was originally an instrumental track until Tag Records decided to copy the vocals from Degree of Motion's 'Do you want it right now' and hey presto, you have one of the best dance tracks ever made!

This was probably the first official "progressive" house tune. Tagging according to music magazines as that was the only reason the term "progressive" appeared is complete bollocks in my opinion.
It is just a very, very funky house tune with a piano riff that will tear a dancefloor apart and a basssline to die for.
