One of the big trance tracks of all time & its all about the breakdown, sends a shiver down my spine, absolute monster of a track, they simply don't come any bigger and these are the mixes to have.

Just one of those tracks everyone knows from the film platoon and the breakdown is simply amazing in a packed nightclub. Shame Tiesto massacred it and now everyone associates this track with his shitty version, he just basically played with the breakdown and then slammed a booming beat over the top....and thats a remix is it, FFS there should be a law made against this! Corsten made the original into a trance masterpiece no question, slotting in nicely with system f - out of the blue and binary finary 1999, if you were a trance dj in 1999 and you didn't own let alone play this your very presence near the decks was frowned upon ;)
