The Adam K and Soha Club Mix make me so happy I can barely stand it.
It's cruising along through the clouds,
aching with good vibes,
leaving you feeling no pain.
from Rock to Dance...only U2
I have been a fan since the WAR album. I have played them as anthems. It is refreshening to hear certain mixes created that have been approved by the band. I was searching for a remix of this track because I like this song so much. I like what I heard. The most entrancing the Adam K and Soha Club Mix sound.
More Great U2 Remixes
I have, and always will, love remixes put out by U2. From Even Better Than the Real Thing to Discotheque to Get on Your Boots, Magnificent's set of remixes are just another installment into a long line of amazing dance remixes. Crank that bass up if you really wanna enjoy this album. 10/10, five stars, and two enthusiastic thumbs up from me on this album!

I'm a pretty big dance music fan. So, every time that a great band like U2 releases a dance mix collection, I am surely looking forward to checking it out.
Well, the two mixes that stuck out for me were Dave Aude's Club Remix and the Adam K and Soha Club Mix. Dave Aude nearly always makes a great dance hybrid remix. He is known for club mixes that are just as good, or better than the songs they came from. This is no exception. It rings very true to the original U2 concept. The Adam K and Soha Club Mix has more of an ambient electro sound that is similar to that of some of DeadMau5's mellower offerings. It is a really good track for headphones, as well. I highly recommend both of those high-quality dance remixes.
Also, if you can find these online or on compact disc, these are some other U2 dance remixes that I would recommend:
Mysterious Ways (Apollo 440's Tabla Motown Club Mix)
Even Better Than the Real Thing (Paul Oakenfold & Steve Osbourne 12" Mix)
Discotheque (Deep Club Mix) remixed by David Morales
Beautiful Day (Quince & Sonance 12" Club Mix)
Call me old, but........
By Christoph W
Call me old, but every time I hear a new U2 remix single I’m stunned that the band endorses these basterdized versions. Does anyone remember the classic Francois Kevorkian versions of New Year’s Day or Two Heats Beat as One? When you remix a song, don’t ad elements that were never there to begin with; emphasize the great elements that the artist put in place from the start. Does this single remix come with a pretentious night club host who’s looking to get his hand shake money and a bottle of Vodka marked up 10 times too? Sorry, just my opinion.
I absolutly love the remixes!! and the original song. Its all great!!!
This is the first time I actually listened to this remix and I was quite impressed. U2 Iis one of my favorite bands and they seem to keep putting out great music album after album. It is different but times have changed and U2 is one of the very few bands who can still pack the stadiums with sold out shows After 30 years they are still going strong. ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Best U2 Remixes Ever
By queen eowyn
First of all, if you don't get what a remix is or don't like to dance, or can't understand what this is because Lynryd Skynyrd never did any such thing, why are you even listening to these tracks? If you're stuck in the past, fine, stay there. But U2 isn't, and anyway, they've been releasing remixes for nearly 20 years, since Achtung Baby.
These remixes are all great; they don't all sound the same, which is a problem to me on a lot of remix EPs. In my opinion, the best are the Dave Aude' Club Remix and Fred Falke Full Club Mix. They keep closest to the spirit of the original. The Adam K and Soha Club Mix is really good, too: very smooth. To me this is the best remix EP U2 has released so far.
Remix demonstrates beauty of original & ugliness of remixes
By Mark R.A.
Thump, thump, thump, thump. That's about what these remixes add up to, a lot of unoriginal bass. Adam Clayton's bass line is more original, more creative, and more engaging that the bass lines in these remixes. Thump, thump, thump, thump. The best part of these remixes are Bono's vocals, as nearly every other good thing has been stripped from the song. Thump, thump, thump, thump. I love U2, and love this song. But stick with the album version. These remixes could have been so much better.
Awesome song....quite good remixes.....U2 seem to struggle with remixes....I wish they would connect with Armin van Buren, Paul Van Dyk (Elevation remix did not sound so good), Above & Beyond, Hybrid, etc.
