British dance DJ Paul Oakenfold feels totally at peace with his decision to remix Elvis Presley's track RUBBERNECKIN' - because he sees it as anything but a classic.

Oakenfold's new version of the 1970 song will be included as a bonus track on the latest Presley compilation 2ND TO NONE, which consists of hits that didn't appear on last year's (02) ELVIS 30 NO 1 HITS collection.

And while Oakenfold reveres Presley's music and would never consider tampering with one of his classics, he believes Rubberneckin' is a different case, explaining, "With all due respect to Elvis... I don't think Rubberneckin' was a classic... I really think people will like it, because it is Elvis - just done in a way that I believe works."

The single will hit American radio stations later this month (AUG03) before going on sale in September (03).
