Yes, I like this "old" cover too. It looks a bit more like blood and much more dangerous and darker. The red colour cries "alert" and would fit with the song quite good.
Thank you for posting it. I knew that there was a different version of it but I didn't know how it looks like.
My CD did not arrived yet. Meanwhile, I heard the whole radio edit. I gotta say it's... weird. I don't know did the Remote music intentionally made it that way or just tried to rebuild the song from the ground up. Lots of cool elements are missing. As a friend of mine said: "The beginning sounds like a 8-bit song". I guess the instrumental edit would be great for listening while playing Super Mario, but ...
Weird .. that's really the right word. I asked remote music once why they even did another version and they told me that the guy (I think his name is Schröder) is a "big well-known" man in the music scene in Germany and radio stations would pick a song with his name on it easier.
And yes, the beginning is something that I really dislike in this version. Just not my kind of music I'm used to listen to. It sounds so "electronic". There are the same notes in the original but in the German version they predominate.
So for me it's a nice collector's item. I listend to it a few times and put it on my shelf.
... and I don't want to talk about the "Super Mario" mix
