There’s a bit of a Hollywood theme developing in our music features on the midweek evening show. Last week it was Idris Elba and this week it’s Ewan McGregor making a contribution, just a few moments ago on the show. Originally part of the soundtrack for Trainspotting 2, this track is based on a sample taken from the film, hence the involvement of the aforementioned, Scottish actor. It reached the giddy heights of number 6 in the UK charts during 1997 but the band never managed to repeat that success.
Like many One Hit Wonders this one still receives a lot of love today. It’s regularly played in clubs around the world as somewhat of a Techno classic, yet it was the only top 40 hit in the UK for PF Project.
If you’d like to hear it again, there are links to the video on YouTube and also to purchase it on iTunes and Amazon. (N.B. If you search for this yourself, be careful to get the intended version. If you’ve ever watched the film, you’ll know that it has quite a bit of explicit language and this was removed from the radio version. )
