Radio Mix


Only available on the CD single. Length 3:02.
Additional remix and production by Vanguard (Axel Bartsch, Asem Shama).
This mix adds a dance beat to the track, and uses keyboard and guitar samples throughout.

Alternate Versions:
1. Video Mix (3:18) (on the enhanced CD single, and the 'Flash Gordon' 2011 iTunes LP as a bonus video; this repeats the opening 8 seconds, and the section from 1:44 to 1:53)
2. CD-Rom Menu Load Edit (0:05) (on the enhanced CD single, played once as soon as the menu loads; this is the section from around 0:17 to 0:21, containing 'Flash, a-ah, saviour of the universe', which starts instantly and fades out during the guitar)
3. CD-Rom Menu Edit (0:07) (on the enhanced CD single, played as a continuous loop on the main menu; this is the section from around 0:17 to 0:23, which is identical to the above version but fades slightly later, after the beat has started)
4. CD-Rom Looped Edit (1:12) (on the enhanced CD single, played as a continuous loop on the 'quit' screen; this is a straight edit of the radio mix from around 0:17 to 1:28)

Lyrics: (the looped edit includes the lyrics and dialogue upto and including 'will you destroy this.... Earth?')

This remix includes elements from the Extended, Tomcraft and Christian Smith & John Selway mixes, however, it is very difficult to determine exactly which parts come from which remixes.
