This track falls into that sweet spot of too old to tell your friends about (it came out in 2009) and too new to be considered "ironic" in a dance DJ set. I just discovered this remix last night and was really shocked by all of the 80's / Daft Punk sounding instruments. Its a very pleasant song with great emotion and I think its just wonderful. But I can also picture it being played in the opening credits of Drive 2... which bothers me.
