The epitome of uplifting trance and everybody that is trying to make uplifting should listen to this first.

Especially the part from 1.20 and up until 1.50 is legendary to me and how it lifts you up one step higher.


Heres original

The Ferry Corsten mix is really nice! The first time I heard the 'original' mix was this version actually:


Didn't like the (minor) changes they had made in the extended version, but it still is very good.

It’s more likely they first made the original mix. And when decided it could go commercial, they made a radio edit.

Which indeed is different. Seems like they thought the original wasn’t appealing enough for radio/tv.

I really like that radio version though. Too bad there’s no extended for that.

Ferry remix is among his best productions. And yeah the radio version is better than the extended.

Who doesn't love this? I even got the pleasure to see him play it out, a very happy and unforgettable moment from my youth. Out of the Blue was followed shortly after.
