Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike vs. W&W Version[edit]

Since 13 October 2014 the Belgian brother-duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike as well as the Dutch DJ-duo W&W played their remix of the hard-trance-track. But the studio version was not released until the 24th July 2015, when it was part of the compilation-album "Tomorrowland - The Secret Kingdom Of Melodia". One year later, regarding to Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike′s "Summer-of-Madness"-project they finally released the full version as a free-single. However, in this case W&W disappeared from the single-cover. Reasons were not mentioned, but they specified the production in an episode of their "Smash-the-House"-podcast as well as on the Tomorrowland-album as a collaboration-track.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Nikolas Mann and premiered in mid-1997. It was heavily influenced by the music video Stéphane Sednaoui directed for Björk's second single of 1993, "Big Time Sensuality".
