Lexos – The Key [2001]

The prerequisite trance cover of Theme For Great Cities. In fairness, as trance tunes go, this is a pretty damn decent arm waving pounder. Frankly, they could loose the vocal cheese entirely and just rock with the strings and choppy synths.

From Discogs
Wow,talk about a myriad of influences! The main ‘You, me, all of us…’ sample is of course taken from Pizzaman’s ‘Trippin’ On Sunshine’ while the main melody is better known as ‘Theme For Great Cities’ by Simple Minds, which was also used in ‘The Real Life’ by Raven Maize. The whole track is produced by the same guys behind Quo Vadis’ ‘Sonic Boom’, which was a remix of ‘Life’s Too Short’ by Hole In One in 1997. ‘Sonic Boom’ included a vocal line of ‘Open Your Mind’, used in Usura’s 1993 hit of the same name, which was based around ‘New Gold Dream’ by Simple Minds again. All in all, it’s no wonder I have difficulty remembering what this track’s called or who it’s by.
