:: INTRODUCTION

Sub-titled "The Official New Version" this dance version of the inspiring theme-song, was remixed by Frank Peterson for the release of the film "The Neverending Story III" in 1994. Performed by the mysterious Pearl in a light, happy voice atop chirpy synth arpeggios, electronic lead-synths and eurodance drums. There is also the wonderful, though brief, inclusion of a soprano aria during the bridge section. Besides the Nemo-produced Radio Edit and Extended Version (which expands the introduction into a moodier affair), the other remixes were commissioned for the release. These range from the blindingly fast Neverending Rave Mix with the entire original remix basically on fast-forward, to the darker House Version.
