For at least three years now... around this time in October, there's a Crystal week when I'm obsessed with this single. Best before dusk, when the clouds are pink. "It was summer, now it's autumn."
I don't think there's another song made whose versions I can listen to for 45+ minutes and never get bored (however I 95% skip the Lee Coombs ones).
What else to say.. I fell in love immediately with the Bedrock remixes. IMO this is how Deep Prog House should look like, right up my alley and the (Bedrock) Radio Edit is one for the best remixes for a song. Only other similar sounding I can think of is Underworld's Cowgirl, also from Digweed & Muir.
Note: every Bedrock remix is a different version, they're not just lazy edits, even the Main vs Main Edit and Dub vs Dub Edit.

Bedrock's remix is boring and takes the track no where, an overly long progressive house tune with no proper structure, it still boggles my mind how this got much support. Creamer & K's went for their usual darker progressive house schtick but kept it fairly interesting. Lee Coombs however stole the show with his tribal influenced driving breaks rendition. Coombs used the source material to great use and kept the guitar from the original and Peter Hook's bassline.

Hook who has been famously quoted saying "None of these bloody remixers ever use my bass lines. I put in all this time and effort yet they use Bernard's vocals but they don't bloody use my bass". I'm sure he was happy when Coombs used his bass.
