The 8:55 Heart (remix), found on the remix 12" of Heart.

I prefer Sheps mixes of Heart by a long shot.

Looking at the timings, Chris would have been listening to it at the time the remix was made. I should imagine he mentioned it whilst in the studio with Phil and Ian.
It's a similar rhythmic pattern to the bass notes in Whitney's song, but quite a different selection of notes. 'In My House' is probably just as close to New Order's 'State Of The Nation' bassline, which came out a year before both songs. And probably many other songs around the time - quite a common style of bass riff.

I always found Shep's Dance Mix sounded horribly tinny - really needed the bass boosted on that one!

Don't think I'd ever heard that version before. Crikey, it's pretty crazy isn't it? It's kind of like a whole remix that has the feel of the bits that were cut out of Julian's 9 minute long version of 'This Must Be The Place I Waited Years To Leave' to make the shorter extended mix on the 'Jealousy' CD single.
