Versions

Candlelight Mix

Because of the dance version's popularity, a stripped-down, ballad-like "Candlelight Mix" version was made, and received airplay on Adult Contemporary radio stations as well as CHR stations.

9/11 Remix

An unauthorized remix of the "Candlelight Mix" was also made by KISS FM in Bakersfield, California to commemorate the September 11 terrorist attacks. The song features a little girl talking about her father who presumably died in the attacks, with the original chorus intermittently playing. A popular Flash animation plays out this version of the song. [ [http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/191882 Newgrounds.com] ] The little girl's vocal was actually the daughter of the program director at the time. He simply read her the lines and had her repeat them for him, with a little emotional prompting. Then he edited himself out of the voice track. This was one of the most requested songs in the stations history, and had all of the local market talking. It even crossed over to Clear Channel's other stations for a wider audience.
