Tommy, I agree. The remix also used what could ahve been some pedal effects (they sounded like glasses being rubbed) which totally blew the whole vibe of the song. (These effects were also used on the original 12" mix, but only towards the end of the song).
As far as remix vs. dance remix goes, I think the term "remix" is actually inappropriate for dance mixes. In essence, they aren't remixes, they're brand new tracks that only use elements of the original. Often these elements are only vocals but can sometimes be bass or keyboards, but regardless they aren't really remixes, they're samples.
