A pity that this fine example of messing about with an original work relates to 'The Snake' - a tune which, in it's original state, seems to arouse such venom (no pun intended).

That aside, as a dancer, what would I think if I heard it played in the main room of a venue? 

:g:

1 Why is The Snake being played.

2 Why has it been messed about with.

3. Why is it so long (over 5 min)

4. Why is it called the 'Senior Citizens Mix'........six of them have just had heart attacks trying to dance til the end of what they thought was a 2 and 1/2 minute tune.

5. Why did I come here

6 Why am I still here

You can abbreviate all of the above to the one word...WHY.

 

As a collector, what would I think if I heard it played in the main room of a venue?

:lol::lol: You nearly got me there....I almost thought it was a serious question!:P

:hatsoff2:- Kev

If played at a venue I would expecting the bride and groom to be in the room, ladies with hats and posh frocks etc,

I would be asking where the soul room was because I've come into the wrong room. :hatsoff2:

Paul Junior,these remixes/alternate takes never improve on the orig issue tune; eg, "It Really Hurts Me girl"etc,all the tom Moulton, lee Jeffries, Ian levine et al. The "Snake" in its new skin? I got Hissed off after the boring extended intro, lol Johnny Senior.

The Snake is a Snake by any other name......

If only that 'Silly Woman' had left the fooking reptile to freeze to death in the first place, we'd have never had to suffer the original let alone the remix.
