Story
This remix is for all you 80'ies-lovers. Spandau Ballet made a big impression on me with hits such as True, Gold and Only when you leave!

The original SID-lead and sounds blended with retro synth - anything else you wish? Well, if there is, why didn't you tell me? You only have yourself to blame!

Well, you won't find the meaning of life with electricity. Go and search somewhere else than here. NOW!!!

Yet another awesome remix by Mahoney that is completely screwed up by the original SID sounds. Yes, I know this was an artistic choice, but for crying out loud, it sounds like crap this way! I`m sorry, I just don`t get it. Believe me, I was actually scratching my head as I listened to this remix. It`s like seeing a Michelangelo painting (= the superb Spandau Ballet-like accompaniment) that has two large blue stripes painted over it by a child ( = the SID sounds) - kinda ruins the whole thing, doesn`t it?

Let me correct the old LaLa here and say that this is something absolutely fabulous. Way ahead of it's time (I guess?). Mahoney in his greatest greatness (or perhaps rock bottom – it doesn't matter really).
