This is such a classic track by Yaz and I really dig all the remixes that have surfaced of this track over the years. Brings back the great synth pop dance memories of the 80s. Well of course the original is still the best but the remixes are all really good too if not a little better than the original.
You have the 1991 single that has a great dubby/bassy remix by Youth. Then for the greatest hits package it was remixed by Club 69 which is actually not one of my favorite mixes of Situation. Then it was remixed for the Future Retro compilation by Richard X which is actually one of my favorites. It kept the original sounds as much as possible but Richard X increased the speed a bit so it’s quite nice and upbeat. Very electronic. Well the original was quite electronic which was perfect on it’s own but this Richard X version is something else.
The Club 69 version has been housed up too much and stripped away from the synth pop sound which turns me off. Don’t get me wrong I do love Club 69 and his music and remixes but this one is just not the strongest. Sounds a bit tired as well. It’s the usual Club 69 house sound that you’ve probably heard countless times.
The Don’t Go/Situation single from 1999 also contains the Richard Humpty Vission remix too but just was actually worse than the Club 69 remix. There’s also a one version remixed by Dave Ralph. Again sort of boring and tired.
