Top Ten Song Remixes Which Improved the Original Song

PositronWildhawk
I love a good remix, and these remixes are excellent. I do recommend them.

The Top Ten

1 The Longest Road (Deadmau5 Remix) - Morgan Page

Listening to it right now. Morgan did an excellent job with this song, but deadmau5 made it yet more incredible. - PositronWildhawk

But.. but... Joel Fletcher... never mind

(I respect the original and even Deadmau5's remix but Joel Fletcher's remix is underrated) I think it's better than even Vicetone's remix in my opinion - DontMessWithDaddylonglegs

2 Need to Feel Loved (Adam K & Soha Remix) - Reflekt

I don't know any of these, I can only take your word for it, my friend. I'm voting this as I love the title and the name Adam :) Thank you. - Britgirl

3 Waiting Game (Rom Wilde Remix) - Banks

The original is a respectable electronic soul piece. This remix is progressive house genius. - PositronWildhawk

4 Speed Freak (Moby Remix) - Orbital
5 Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Deadmau5 Remix) - Daft Punk

What about Dillon Francis? - DontMessWithDaddylonglegs

6 Fool's Gold (Grooverider Remix) - The Stone Roses
7 Shelter (Owsey Remix) - Birdy

This became an exquisite chillstep track thanks to Owsey. - PositronWildhawk

8 Waiting for the Night (Beat Service Remix) - Armin Van Buuren

Improving one of Armin's best works is seriously saying something. - PositronWildhawk

9 Sunday (Moby Remix) - David Bowie
10 Cinema (Skrillex Remix) - Benny Benassi

The Contenders

11 Midnight (Giorgio Moroder) - Coldplay

Amazing remix of a stupid song. - keyson

12 Waves - (Robin Schulz Radio Edit) - Mr. Probz
13 19-2000 (Soulchild Remix) - Gorillaz
14 Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix) - Omi

Er...no. The trumpet riffs added in are completely unnecessary, and the remix is completely offkey. - WonkeyDude98

15 Sunrise (Tiesto Remix) - Goldenscan
16 Enchanted (Adam Young Remix) - Taylor Swift

Its not a remix.it's a cover

17 Army of Me (Sucker Punch) - Bjork

They simply took Björk's already amazing 1995 pop song (her first two to three albums were actually pretty straightforward pop) and turned it into an epic mind blowing 7 minute song. Up to a certain point, original and remix sound the same, but then Skunk Anansie kick in and deliver electric guitars including a solo, the version also features a rock segment with Björk performing the third verse using screamo vocals. Later on follows a more score-like sequence, where it suddenly switches to some sort of dramatic fighting music, until in the end it's back to normal again. The original song was great, but this remix turns it to something even more amazing and exciting. - Martin_Canine

18 Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais) - Lana Del Rey

I like them both! - Fan_of_Good_Music

19 Superhuman (Au5 Remix) - Juventa

I'm banging my head against my screen for seeing I forgot to add this incredible remix in the first place. - PositronWildhawk

20 Sweat (David Guetta Remix) - Snopp Dogg
21 Englishman In New York (PH Electro Remix) - Sting
22 How Deep the Father's Love for Us (Adam Young Remix) - Stuart Townend
23 Take Me Away (Deadmau5 Remix) - 4 Strings
24 Just a Touch (Fear Club Remix) - Alunageorge
25 Promises (Skrillex Remix) - Nero

This is one of the rare cases where the remix is better than the original

26 Heads Will Roll (A - Trak Remix) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs

This ones better for a party. The original was good but not enough

27 Sick Bubblegum (Skrillex Remix)
28 What Is Light? Where Is Laughter? (Skrillex Remix) - Twin Atlantic
29 Bury You Deep (Gemini Remix) - Amy Steele

An incredible piece of music. - PositronWildhawk

30 Rather Be (Ashley Wallbridge Remix) - Clean Bandit
31 Freak On a Leash (Butch Vig) - Korn

Everyone thinks Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails remixed this song. Well they clearly didn't.

33 The Hills (Eminem Remix) - The Weeknd
34 Big Time Sensuality (The Fluke Minimix) - BJÖRK
