    While this is very much a 'pop' trance single as well as a club hit, it's interesting to note that this release may be the highest-charting CD single in UK chart history that didn't come with a radio edit. Due to a frustrating change in chart eligibility criteria in 1998, for CD single sales to count towards chart positions the total running time had to be less than 25 minutes rather than 40 minutes as it was as of 1992. For most labels, to stay within the time limit they ditched remixes and 12" versions, much to the chagrin of CD DJs.

    Positiva bravely took the decision to forego a radio edit for Better Off Alone and put three full-length mixes on the CD instead. A radio edit was made and used on the airwaves and also appeared on compilations, but given how many copies of this single were sold and the fact it made the Top Ten is surely a testament to how massive trance was back in 1999.

      Play Jam X and DeLeon's Hard Trance mix and forget the other cheesy Top of the Pops mixes

        This single is one of alice deejay's best singles ever. The song Better Off Alone toped international charts world wide and was a major dancehit.
