Being boring (Uk remix) by Marshall Jefferson was a surprising remix, I still think its a brilliant mix today. I liked all the very early mixes (Please, Actually Introspective) as they followed the general feel of the original track.

The boring remixes started when the dance dj's got too carried away, sometimes being completely unrecognisable and containing very few (if any) lyrics, some of them great to listen to, others just noise.

Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously?... Brothers In Rhythm 7" mix is the defintive mix really, and would have made Behaviour even MORE definitive.

And Violence has only had one remix and that was a re-recording
Sorry, I was thinking about the 12" master. It's awesome.

As far as Shep Pettibone is concerned, it's a bit tragic that N&C stopped using him after Left to my own devices, because shortly afterwards he started doing some great house mixes for Madonna, Janet Jackson, etc.
The Release tour versions of Love comes quickly and Go West (particularly the end) are brilliant.

I would go so far as to say that the only officially released UK remixes that are rubbish from Please through to Discography singles are the 12" remix of Heart and the DJ international mixes of It's alright. Some of the David Morales remixes from behaviour era are a bit average but not awful. I think the quality took a massive decline from Can You Forgive Her onwards. Best overall in my opinion is Jealousy, just one remix/extended version which I think is the best 12" version they have ever released. No crap at all!
