I Like This Song But...

"Five different mixes of the same song is a bit much, if you ask me. The second track, entitled Bushfire, is pretty good however. But in my opinion, they should have just put out one version of the song."

"I was working for a radio station during 90' which had this as a maxi-single and I wanted the instrumental to "Roam" very badly for my personal collection. This was not the first time I've heard of the group as years ago I had bought them on vinyl and found them as hip. When the station cleaned house of inventory as a result of a format change, I did not get the CD! Nothing can replace the real thing, no karaoke release of the tune can do justice in my book. That's how strong an impression certain instrumentals have made with me.
Time went by, but I never forgot the instrumental and hearing the regular radio release every time reminds me of it. I'm happy that this song was put into several mixes because to me it's an action song with enough strength to be marketed in this manner, and for 90' it was not alone (Electronic's "Getting away with it" is an example from that year that I got.) If the parties who allowed this song to be released as a single with various mixes should ever read this, please accept my sincerest thanks for your vision over a decade ago! Roam is a feel-good tune that was very cutting-edge for it's day, and even now, it hasn't "burned" much with me. It's usage on certain commercials this year hasn't surprised me, and I consider it a classic. Crank it!"
