There are so many different mixes although I guess the original album mix is my favourite, probably though via a real orchestra, such as via the Concrete album or the live performance celebrating Trevor Horn's catalogue. The onusound mix is good.. as is the disco mix. I'm not a fan of the stuart price mixes, especially the ROH mixes, which although funny (inflatable bouncing jelly babies come to mind), I prefer the image of the jolly members of the orchestra giving it their all.

Somewhere I remember an interview with Trevor Horn when he was asked about what musicians thought about playing the piece live as its quite a challenge. The response was something along the lines (IIRC), 'thats what we're looking forward to'. The idea that the guys are (partly) responsible for creating a challenge for seasoned musicians used to playing Beethoven etc, seems pretty neat to me. Especially as the guys are often depicted as one-finger keyboard pounding pop stars of limited talent.
