Story
This tune is a remake of one of David Whittakers' masterpieces, Armageddon Man. Although being a rather dull game (IMHO), I just loved the music. If you like the song, I'd also like to recommend Kent 'Trace' Walldén's excellent remix of this song.

I met Karin Öjehagen through a mutual friend, and I instantly knew her voice would be the perfect match for this song! For more information about Karin, go to http://www.livet.se/visa

I hope you'll like the it (as well as our interpretation of it), because we had lots of fun doing it!

Superb! Is there any genre you CANNOT do?
I've heard all the mixes and covers you have on this site, and I'm truly impressed...you are an exellent musician, indeed!
I still remember when I got the noisetracker you made a long time ago, with the Mahoney and Kaktus logo, if I remember correctly...and I did make much noise with it =)

Nothing half-hearted in your music...if it says Spandau Ballet Mix, you can actually wonder if it was made by Spandau Ballet...could've fooled me =)

And THIS tune is just beautiful

There is no doubt in my mind that this is a classic, if any remix here will ever be one.

Original idea and very well implemented! We are already used to the high quality work that Mahoney delivers, but Karin Öjehagen takes this remix to a higher ground, that is just purely amazing.

This remix gives me the goosebumps again and again! And I have listened to it A LOT!

Three thumbs up!

This is a very fine remix of a Whittaker classic. Loved the tune, got bored with the game.
This remix reminds me of the freeform jazz you get at the end of Metal Gear Solid 2 on PS2 - and that shows how good the production is! There was a chill down my spine the first time I heard the voice...

This is something special. this is something very special, the production on this is tremendous, the piano is beautifully tuned to perfection, that voice....hngggggggg!!!!!! id love to wake up to that voice every morning!
and for a few weeks i did, i have to admit i was so addicted to this tune that i had it on my computer alarm, i played it before work, i let my mum hear it, my friends have all heard it on my walkman it goes everywere with me.
this is just one seriously class tune, made by a seriously classy musician who deserves to be placed in the annex of fame for the rest of his life.

absolutely superb job, beautiful vocals (cant shut up about the vocals!)... excellently done remix, that is a break from the large amount of comic bakery techno remixes we seem to have alot of.
basically its beautiful and all that jazz ;-)

In one word: Fantastic!
In many words: This remix is a one of a kind. It really captures the listener. Very professional sounding. The vocals are beautiful enough to give you chills. I can't really find anything bad to say about this piece. Fan-friggin-tastic

I can discribe what kind of feelings the song wakes in me. Everything in this song was perfectly arranged and make it to the BEST COVER EVER (in my opinion). Mahoney did make a pice of history with this song and the Vocal are incredible. Respect to Karin Öjehagen, MASSIVE RESPECT to Mahoney!!!!
