Here’s a list of some the best remixes I’ve ever heard. This list ranges from songs released in the 90’s to even last year. It’s an ordered list even though I don’t really think I can rank some of these songs. Some of them are remarkable and just timeless. I’m sure many of you will recognize them because they were really poppin’ when they were first released and even the really old ones are still jams. What’s weird is a lot of names are repeated on this list, guess some artists just really know how to do a remix!
15.MARIAH CAREY FT THE LOX, P.DIDDY – HONEY (REMIX) – 1997
I don’t think it’s better than the original(which was super freaking amazing ) but it’s still a PRETTY good remix.
14.KYLA LA GRANGE – CUT YOUR TEETH (KYGO REMIX) -2014
The remix >>>>>>>> the original . Kygo did amazing work on this one.
13.DJ SNAKE & ALUNA GEORGE – YOU KNOW YOU LIKE IT(REMIX) – 2014
Lol , this song has an original? Too bad idgaf about it, no offence AlunaGeorge.
12.KANYE WEST FT JAY Z -DIAMONDS FROM SIERRA LEONE (REMIX)- 2005
Bars on bars!!!
11.MARIAH CAREY FT NAS AND JOE – THANK GOD I FOUND YOU (REMIX)- 2000
This song is so fucking precious.
10.R.KELLY FT JAY Z ,BOO & GOTTI- FIESTA(REMIX) -2000
Old Jay is giving me life. lol Fiesta, fiesta…
9.LIL KIM FT ANGIE MARTINEZ,LEFT EYE, DA BRAT,MISSY ELLIOT – LADIES NIGHT(REMIX) – 1997
I still feel like Aaliyah should have been in this remix. But anyway these ladies absolutely killed it.
8.MR PROBZ – WAVES (ROBIN SHULZ REMIX) – 2014
This song …wow it was like one of the biggest songs last year and it’s a remix. Incredible.
7.LIL WAYNE & KANYE WEST – LOLLIPOP(REMIX)- 2008
Here for Kanye’s verse.
6.MARIAH CAREY FT JERMAINE DUPRI,LORD TARIQ,PETER GUNZ – MY ALL (REMIX)- 1997
Mariah is so sick at remixes, she released an entire album just for her remixes. You can only do that when your remixes are this dope.
5.N.E.R.D FT KANYE WEST, LUPE FIASCO & PUSHA T – EVERYONE NOSE(REMIX) – 2008
Lupe’s verse was cold, damn.
4.R.KELLY – IGNITION(REMIX) -2003
I don’t think I’ve ever even heard the original for this song. R.Kelly was maaaad yo.
3.BUSTA RHYMES FT P.DIDDY & PHARRELL – PASS THE COURVOISIER II- 2002
This song is so much older than it sounds. What a classic.
2.MARIAH CAREY FT DJ CLUE, DA BRAT , MISSY ELLIOT- HEARTBREAKER(REMIX) -1999
Mariah is probably the one person who started making remixes a mainstream thing in the 90’s. Why are all her remixes so fucking ill? She’s probably the one who started the trend of doing music videos for them as well. She’s already all over this list because she’s obviously the Queen of remixes.
1.BUSTA RHYMES FT PAPOOSE, MISSY ELLIOT, RAH DIGGA,LLOYD BANKS, MARY J.BLIDGE & DMX – TOUCH IT (REMIX) – 2006
I don’t know about you guys but this remix was absolute fire when it first came out. I can never forget this one. ILLEST.REMIX.EVER.
Okay there’s probably a bunch of other amazing remixes that I’ve forgotten to mention, but these are the ones I can recall for now. Cleaahhhly Busta Rhymes, Mariah Carey and R.Kelly are doing something right ! lol . What about you guys? What are your favorite remixes?
