Steer well clear of the original version, an absolutely horrendous exercise in the biggest cliches that italo disco and synth pop have to offer. The Aeroplane remix doesn't help the matter much, offering simply a somewhat faster and italo disco-tinged rendition of the original. A-Trak's remix doesn't fare much better either. While it does beef the original up considerably, it still retains those awful Eurovision-style vocals, and the bassline sounds like it was nicked straight from Thomas Bangalter's harddrive.

Thus, it's Gerald Donald's job to save this release. And boy, does he ever! The Arpanet remix offers a very satisfying slice of stripped down and sleazed-out electro bliss, complete with those eerie Arpanet/Dopplereffekt-synths, a rumbling bassline and some of the better sampling of female moans on a record that I've heard for quite some time. Perhaps not the most original thing Donald has ever done, but when executed this well, I really couldn't care less.
