Can anyone let me know if this version of Gimme The Prize was genuinely released on the CD Single No One But You?

Hi


I'm pretty sure it was: I bought the single back in98,

It's the instrumental remix extract from "The Eye" soundtrack

The Eye was some kind of "doom like" video game

I once found a german version, but have never managed to make it run...


cheers

Thanks, I have The EyE, so I will check on that. The more I think about it, the more I seem to think there was a remix as an additional track on No One But You..... seeing it yesterday on YouTube threw me somewhat. I am going up into the loft this afternoon to dig out my singles collection to check.

I like the remix, though I wish it had kept the intro guitar of the song along with the "newscaster" from the movie:

Newscaster: "...garage, and water from the sprinkler. They also found a man's decapitated body, lying on the floor next to his own severed head; a head which at this time has no name."

Kurgan: "I know his name!"
