Two Wrongs Make A Right

As mentioned a few posts ago, I have been slowly working my way through the list of 100 best singles that Mixmag published back around 1996 or so. Although I have heard many of the records on the list, there are definitely a few that were new to me. One of the most surprising gems is David Morales' (!) mix of Mariah Carey's (!!) "Dreamlover" (!!!). Here is the original, sung with a youthful, daydreaming optimism that, while pleasant, belies the stated desperation of the singers need.

And here, the remix, which, I think, changes the key and rewrites the background to drastic effect. In terms of need and desperation, this is an adult record.
