I'm not sure if a thread like this exists, I tried searching but I couldn't find anything tongue.gif

Sometimes I find that songs can be elevated to something much, much better with a simple remix. Other times a remix can ruin the vibe of a song, but this isn't the place to talk about that wink.gif

What songs do you prefer the remixes to? What are they? Do you /controverisally/ like a remix of a popular song whereas most people like the original? kink.gif

In terms of dance remixes this is one of my big favourites, I found the original a bit dull at times but this lifts it up dance.gif (so much so that Alma later copied it)

And a very very recent dance remix wub.gif


But let's not forget 'urban' remixes, Boo'd Up just got a remix featuring Nicki Minaj & Quavo (yes, Quavo is back on literally everything) which I think really adds another layer to the song tbh

On the subject, my choice would be the Freemasons remix of Nightcall by London Grammar in 2013, that was great.

Jake from here introduced me to this a few years ago on plug.dj and it's flawless, Richard X is definitely one of my favourite producers wub.gif

Does this include songs where the remix is better known that the original, or in some cases is believed to be the original? I'd go for "Loaded" by Primal Scream, which was a deconstructed remix of one of Primal Scream's other songs, "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have".

Speaking of Lana Del Rey, she's got a few amazing remixes outside of the obvious Summertime Sadness one:

- Blue Jeans (RAC Remix)
- Summertime Sadness (Reich & Bleich Remix)
- Ultraviolence (Hook N Sling Remix)
- Young & Beautiful (Cedric Gervais Remix)

All 10/10 remixes.

I think this must be the biggest improvement from an original to a remix that I know of:



The original is borderline unlistenable but this was in my top 20 BJSC 2017 songs x

Nooooooooooooooo - the original is sublime, for me it’s one of the best pop songs of its decade.

The Jason Nevins remix of Livvi Franc - Now I'm That Bitch is *.*

And I adore the original (it's my fave of his) but I'd argue a case for the Felix Jaehn version of 'Photograph' by Ed Sheeran too. Soooo good and feels so summery!

I doubt anyone has even heard the original mix of this, but everyone knows the remix!

I agree with cqmerqn re: Tove Lo, the 'Stay High' remix is by farrrrr the best thing she's ever been involved with (one of my favourite songs of that year) and the original has always just come across as underwhelming in comparison. Maybe it'd be different if I'd heard the original first / if it was the version that got big here but I'm really glad that we got the remix as a hit instead.
