The Bruce Forest dub is a great piece of dance music. It perfectly captures the essence of Was (Not Was) leftfield funk and melts it with Bruce's magical electro/funk touch. The result is something akin to Minneapolis 80's funk, think Prince or Jesse Johnson ... and by the way Bruce Forest did also remix Jesse Johnson, and you've got to listen to his remixes of "Crazay" and "(She) I Can't Resist" if you like his work on this Was (Not Was) song !
Anyway the weird keyboard part at the beginning of "Boy's Gone Crazy" simply makes me CRAZY. That's without a doubt one of Bruce's greatest works !
