The Good Life video version

Does anyone know the version of The Good Life used in the original promo video? If it's the same mix that charted in the UK, I'll find it weird since this version wasn't issued in the US.

The video version is the album (Exodus) version.
.
The Good Life maxi single did well in the UK mainly due to the Dancing Divas remix becoming a club favourite. Especially here in Liverpool. It still gets some spins to this day

Liverpool?... wow...based on your comments, for some reason i would have thought you were American...African American... not that your ethnicity matters one bit, because you seem super cool and you know your stuff...and we seem to dig alot of the same stuff, musically....

Yep yes I remember dancing (or what may pass for it) to that remix in clubs in Essex.

Prince was still big news commercially in the UK and Europe in the first half of the 90s and many here seem to forget that. Even the NPGs 'Get Wild' reached number 19 in the UK singles chart

Ha, thanks!
Funny you say that my friends and family often say I should have been born black in New York. I used to watch The Warriors on a daily basis..

It used to get heavy rotation in nightclubs around the North West of England. They played it for years on local radio station Rock FM.

When I went to the NPG gig last December, there were a couple of guys in front of me, clearly expecting a retro dance music act... They kept shouting for Good Life at the end for the encore (bless!).
blah blah blah

I went the Manchester gig in December and asked Sonny at the meet and greet if they were going to play The Good Life. He said 'we've rehearsed it but I don't think so,' and of course they didn't.

.

I saw a video of them playing it in Amsterdam and it sounded good. Close to the original version and Tony done the short rap near the end.

They've completely forgotten about the Diamonds and Pearls album which had Gett Off and Cream, but they see it as a Prince album for obvious reaons (Prince, Rosie Gaines and Tony M were all on vox and this was before Sonny stepped in). Are they more familar with the Platmiun People remix or the Dancing Divas remix?

Technically the video version is a different edit because it has a crowd noise at the end, but except for that I believe it's exactly the album version.
