I actually fell in love with the Remix first, because it's just tense and sounds like frustration, and always said the Original should've been called When Things Go Right, because it is a thing of true beauty. Both are amazing.

To be honest I’ve never really listened to the remix too much, but it is pretty cool mate.

the emotions pouring from the original version certainly hit hard though. Really pulls on those heart strings. The 2005 mix is also rather nice I thought 😊

i prefer the remix it's more dramatic/mature original is more soft and dreamy. kind a question of preference/taste.
i agree btw that title doesn't really match the original version but does the 2003 remix.

The original is without a doubt one of my favorite productions from Airwave. I've literally never heard any of the other mixes, but they're actually not too bad either.

The original just repeats that phrase too much imo. Its a little too bold and simplistic. Maybe he just couldnt expand on that feeling. I actually find it becoming annoying after awhile.

He could have done more with it. That remix is alot better musically.

The Airwave remix is one of my favorites from him.
I think this track was overshadowed by the original and all the later reworks that were based on the original. It seems like no one wanted to capture the melancholy from the Airwave remix, so they went for the original instead.

I'd say it was more frustration with the Remix, and some sort of helplessness. Just builds towards those emotions, but never sort of resolves fully. The melody from the original plays in the background as a sort of a contrast and potential resolution, but the main melody overpowers it. Just lovely, smart work.
