I absolutely agree with DJoA, this tune is born 2 be instrumental, the vocals completely destroys great feeling of original Clear Blue

The quality of "Somewhere" is far to find. It reminds me to English movies with dubbed French language.
Take the original song "Clear Blue" and then dub the song with the lyrics of Justine Suissa.
Then you have "Somewhere". You can hear so that this song is not written for and with the lyrics.

No, give me the great original "Clear Blue" with the outstanding melody.

Somewhere (Clear Blue) (Markus Schulz Coldharbour Remix)
This remix starts with a very lengthy introduction, very calm and relaxed like your typical 'Coldharbour' remix from Markus. As the track starts to progressively take off, we hear the Clear Blue melody very subtly coming through in the background accompanied by Markus Schulz's quality kick. As the melody start's to really build the track slowly starts to fade into the breakdown, and we are greeted with vocals, quite fitting to the style of the remix. The beautiful melody that is Clear Blue superbly soon takes over after it kicks in with a powerful bassline, and is soon again nicely combined with the vocals. The unique stabs of synths on the second breakdown makes the buildup to the second kick in even more fantastic. It keeps on building until the ridiculously long outro! A real quality progressive take on this awesome track, totaling just over 12 minutes.

Clear Blue (Airwave Instrumental)
Your typical flat beat introduction starts us of, with L-Vee's hard as they come kick and bassline. Straight to the point, we hear the melody coming through with some cool percussion and stabs of synths that are common in all remixes and original, purely because they are fantastic sounding. It doesn't take long to realise that this track is quickly building into a monster of a trance tune. As we get to the breakdown the track just about explodes into a crescending anthem, getting louder and louder before L-Vee's awesome kick hammers its way in with some added flange for good measure. Obviously being titled Instrumental means there are no vocals in this remix, but L-Vee does hold in his possession a version containing vocals held back from the general release. The bass suddenly starts to fade before briefly entering the second breakdown. The key changes in the riff are quality and really adds that special something to the catchy melody. This truly is a real excellent effort on a real decent trance interpretation of a well established progressive tune. Mr L-Vee does it again!
