The Wicked Mix (and its short version) of 'Trip To Raveland' is the one that made its way to airplay and is my favourite track from Marusha. 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' and 'It Takes Me Away' might have been more successful in sales and the latter having a most amazing video, but 'Raveland' should be the most elaborate musically. Every tension and pattern comes in the perfect moment for a club environment and there are lots of small details that are audible when listening to the track on headphones.
'Upside Down (Pumpin' Mix)' is also a reworked version of the album track, making heavy use of the distorted bassdrum that was typical to Marusha's tracks back then - hence the remix title.

Both tracks are top notch and this is my favourite single from 1994, encapsulating my favourite moments music-wise from that year.

Also, Trip To Raveland is one of the rave/happy hardcore tracks that made me to go for the CD (better said, to request it from parents at that time :)), just to find another version on it - due to the fact that the album was released earlier and 'hit tracks' were later completely reworked for airplay (also the case with 'Can't Stop Raving' by Dune, 'Unique' from Marusha and Moby's 'Feeling So Real'). It meant additional "hunting work" to get the single versions as the singles were not distributed in Hungary then...
