Is this remix better than the original album version? I think so. It's so uplifting, it's on a par with Don't Stop Me Now, in that regard....it's a real 'pick you up' sort of a song!

I know they played it at the Dominion WWRY for 'special' shows - but what's the story here, is it an official remix? I thought it was unofficial to be honest.

I sure wish the remix guys visit here and if they do, perhaps they could do something with Body Language! :P

They played this before some QPR shows as well. Was released on iTunes which I think I only knew about because of QOL so I guess it was at least 'endorsed' if not official.

^ Yes. IIRC it was an unofficial mix that was so well received that the boys ended up endorsing it and having it put on iTunes.

Which album version?

Always preferred the "Reprise" to the version found as track one.

Absolutely. The reprise version is wonderful (I love the guitar licks in there too). Strange, for such an upbeat, positive - albeit simple - message, this track always leaves me a little sad (probably takes me back to the first time I heard it when I bought the album - gawd, that was an emotional first listen!
