"Honey, bring it close to my lips. It's gotta be big." And big it was... This single is a classic case where a remix can be more popular than the original version. After a succesful collaboration with Brian "BT" Transeau ("Blue Skies"), Tori Amos embraced dance music again with the help of Armand Van Helden, Marc Kinchen and Mr. Roy (whose remixes are not available on this edition). And it worked very well: "Professional Widow" finished the year 1996 as one of the most played club tune around the world. Funny facts (I read this somewhere): Van Helden never met Tori Amos and was only paid a small amount of money for his re-version. Hoewever, the benefits of such a hit for both artists were tremendous (Van Helden began to release a serie of very succesful remixes for CJ Bolland and Nuyorican Soul amongst others. Amos continued her collaboration with dance acts such as Hasbrouck Heights or Andy Gray). MK and Mr. Roy were mostly eclipsed by Van Helden, but individually they also gave a good remix effort.
