Even though the original is one of my least favourites on the album, I wasn't too sure about a dance remix at first, envisaging something along the lines of badly-produced Euro-disco. My first impressions are that it's much mellower than I expected having slower, gentler vocals with some melodic changes. I'm still not very keen on the shrill backing vocals which have remained. I would've liked to have heard less liberal over-use of the synthesised vocals and something more interesting than a house beat. It's still a pleasant surprise though, and I do love the sound of Adam's voice. I know it'll grow on me, being very catchy thus having the potential to become the anthem it was always intended to be.
And just for comparison, here's the original version:
