U2 – Lemon (Perfecto Mix) (1993)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – Discogs

This reminds me of a hedonistic, alpine Christmas in 1993. After his successful residency at Spectrum at Heaven, and his production work on Happy Mondays’ Rave On and Pills Thrills… releases, Paul Oakenfold was a man in demand. U2 wanted to work with the DJ of the hour. In 1992, when his Perfecto remix of ‘Even Better Than the Real Thing’ charted higher than the original song, they knew they were on to something. By 1993, Oakenfold had joined the band’s Zoo TV tour to DJ between acts. He went on to remix ‘Lemon’ off the forthcoming Zooropa album, bought a house in Putney next to my girlfriend’s flat, and the rest is history as they say. Have a great weekend.
