    Yes! I couldn't remember which cd it was from. It's on my old iPod. That's the best mix in my view, the reverb doesn't really detract from the effectiveness there.

    However, does anyone else find the remix of One Love annoying? I bought it a few years back and something in the background a "ticking" or whatever drove me nuts. It's so small but it stood out sorely. Am I nuts? Haha I find no real fault in the original's arrangement (some tracks def benefitted from one) and it doesn't include this addition(?).

    The percussive "ticking" was always there. It was brought forward more in the 1994 remix.

    That’s the hi-hat on the drums being struck by a drumstick.

    Oh okay, that makes sense, it just sounded better when more mixed/subdued, despite being seemingly somewhat not as crucial to the feel of the song.
