Here are some notes from Koen, about his mixes
When you're re-working a song this could mean a couple of things:
1. you don't like the original
2. you like the original, but you want to enjoy it longer
3. for commercial purposes...

Extended remixes

Well in my case I really liked all the original versions and I never thought of any commercial purposes. When I finally bought the Sailing on the seven seas extended version I was more or less disappointed as it didn't include an extended version, but a different mix. I really liked the album/single versions, so I decided to extend this track, like the famous Razormaid dj's did in the past. Since I'm not a remixer/dj I still started to rework the track on my pc. The results (tracks 7 & 8) are in my opinion not bad at all.
Because of my first 'OMD-remix success' I tried to extend the original b-side of Everyday, Every time as well. Here the unedited extended version (track 1) as well as a faster version (track 2).
Regarding Julia's song (track 4), I really like all released versions, even though I never understood why they entitled the instrumental/dub version as an extended, so I made my own real extended version. Surprisingly the quality of the vinyl was still very good...
As the extended version of Sailing... and Floating on the seven seas were almost alike I tried to create a megamix, the result this extended Floating... keep on floating (track 3), originally recorded on a minidisc.

Unreleased single edits

As most of the compilation albums are incomplete I started to compile my own OMD singles collection. There were too many tracks for one cdr and not enough to fill two, so I decided to add some songs that should've been singles, but never were. Promise (track 6), from the album Organisation, had some hitlist-potential and has been a favourite ever since. So I made a radio-friendly edit of it.
The same I did with Too late (track 9). I never understood why Virgin Records released Universal and not Too late or That was then, this is now, a perfect single to end a career...
The Electrik Music debut album includes the wonderful Kissing the machine (track 5). I wanted to include this non-OMD song also on my singles collection, but somehow I didn't want to use the album version, so I started again working on a radio-friendly edit...

Thanks to Corky for this information.
F-Bomb 75 - Well, after spending 7 weeks on Bad Ju Ju I spent a whole hour on this. And strangely I like this track more. It all started after I heard that Madonna (or her people) had seeded P2P with dummy tracks prior to the release of her new album that simply contained her saying 'What the f*ck do you think you're doing?' It was obvious that someone would do something silly with the sample, and I just happen to be that someone (though this may well turn into a GYBO challenge....). Also featuring the acapella to F*ck The Pain Away by Peaches and McSleazy's cover of Electricity by OMD. Not suitable for kids or those who're easily offended
