The Glory of the Remix

This is not an attempt to be like Complex magazine with their abundance of lists that constantly flood the internet for not reason at all (yet people enjoy them for whatever reason). Someone on Twitter asked the question: Which remixes are better than the originals? I put in my couple of tweets, and then out of nowhere, a massive flurry of answers came roaring through and it was suggested by a good friend (shout out to Matthew) that I should just put together a post that highlights a popular few. I got a lot of answers, but there’s only so much I can post – so I picked 20. Listen and reminisce over the greatness that were remixes (although some good ones have come in recent years). By the way, this is not a ranking of the best remixes; just some good ones. Enjoy.
