Oh the second half with the vocals is retched. Honestly, I'd probably listen to the original. This drags it out.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

This horrible train-wreck of a tune has been turned into something resembling a good song. Good work, Andrew.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Shut the front door - Andrew has rescued Winner and make it listenable. This version will replace the album version for sure, and will sound great after Invisible. Where can I buy?

Is there any sniff of a promo 12" or CD of the remixes out there from EMI in Europe or Astralworks(?) in the US?

Totally agree. Mr. Dawson managed to polish a turd.

Hmm. The instrumental intro is nice on its own, but it would've worked better if he'd cut that down by about 3/4 and led right into Neil's voice.
Otherwise, good mix!
And everything about tonight feels right and so young
And anything I'd want to say out loud will be sung
It's in the music...

And the lyrics are great.

For my money the AD HappyHour mix is the best of the bunch, although I do like this one a lot as well. I don't even mind the John Dahlback mix, but you can keep that awful Niki and Dove thing. Apart from that one, this is not such a bad remix bundle after all. I'm even warming to the original version after not listening to it for weeks.
But it feels like the flight
Of the von Trapps, does that mean it's war?
