We got hold of the soundtrack and listened to the song over and over again, it was such an uplifting song yet the subject matter of 'Edge Of Seventeen' was very personal to Stevie Nicks as it was about the death of her uncle and John Lennon. We tried to keep the emotion of the original version, yet add elements that would work on a dancefloor today. We were pleased that clubbers and djs alike felt the version we did.

Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
I don't know
