I know there's one or two of you out there who can't get enough of my remixes, and to BOTH of you I say... ;') not being content to leave well enough alone, here's my attempt at adding a percussion break to the Gypsy remix. If you love the song, hey, it just lasts longer and you can sing along to it more as you walk down the street!!! As well, I addressed some static issues in the ballad intro and cut the Dave Stewart "Ladies and Gentlemen" speech and tap dance.

I always prefer a remix that sounds like the original song - modern "house" and "trance" re-interpretations just drive me up the wall - I LOVE REAL MUSIC!! I want the music to send me on a journey, not some chemical made in a bathtub!! Is there any hope for me??

A remix of a great song with the dancefloor in mind, with more of a four-on-the-floor feel, but still respecting the kick/snare of the pop heartbeat in the original. The Mac is of course backing Stevie up, but in this arrangement, a nod to the Giorgio Moroder/Pete Belotte style that propelled Donna Summer to the top of the charts.

Stevie has her own channel here on Youtube! For years, I thought the lyric was about her youth, but because of the words used (and my love of disco- who's kidding who?) I assumed the words "velvet underground" and "back to the floor that I love" were about New York, Andy Warhol and Studio 54! It turns out to be something different, but magic nonetheless.

Aren't we lucky to share the planet at the same time as all these fabulous singers? Donna, Babs, Whitney, Sheena, Jane Oliver, Olivia, Stevie, Bette... Their styles may differ, but they touch us in wonderful, affirming ways.

Is it just me, or is Stevie a goddess? The queen of mysticism...

So I'm back, to the velvet underground
Back to the floor, that I love
To a room with some lace and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was
To the gypsy... that I was

And it all comes down to you
Well, you know that it does
And lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
oh, and it lights up the night
And you see your gypsy
You see your gypsy

To the gypsy that remains faces freedom with a little fear
I have no fear, I have only love
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love

She is dancing away from you now
She was just a wish
She was just a wish
And a memory is all that is left for you now
You see your gypsy
You see your gypsy

Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you
And it all comes down to you

Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you

I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
I have always loved you
And it all comes down to you
