How many legitimate mixes of "Snappy" exist? Just the 12" Martyn Phillips mix and the "Spice Has Risen" Justin Robertson mix? Or is there a THIRD mix?

There are indeed 3.

- original on the UK single
- 12" Remix on US single
- The Spice Has Risen Mix

The only difference between the original and 12" Remix is a short edit (around 2:15) that removes a few measures right before the "Partaaaaaay!" vocal. The drum beat sounds like When the Levee Breaks by Led Zeppelin, so I guess they had to excise it for copyright reasons.

I may be biased since I am in the US, but the 12" Remix is what I was used to and when I hear the edited version, it doesn't sound right. I'd bet money that what we know as the 12" Remix was the "original" version because nothing else seems changed (as far as a "remix" goes) from the UK single version.

Also, the 12" Remix did not appear in the EBX set and remains a US exclusive as far as I know :)
