Pete Tong, Ultra Nate - Free (Do What U Want)
I was in a terrible place when 'Free' was released. Swindon, to be precise. A town with very few nightlife options back in the 1990s. This meant I heard it at least five times whenever I left the house. It's been over twenty years, and I still can't handle the original without provincial PTSD kicking in. However, this new Pete Tong 'Classical House' version has taken the edge off it slightly. The choral bits are too much, but the arrangement (especially the strings) and Ultra Nate's vocals are luminous. There's a long way to go, but I don't hate it.
