If a remix came on the radio five plus years ago, I would immediately change the channel. Typically it would be a sped-up, repetitive, lesser version of the original that you’d hear when your friend’s mom picked you up from the movies or at a roller rink.
But now people actually know how to remix really well and huge artists release versions upon versions of their hits. Here are 10 remixes you need to know about.

I honestly love every version of this song. This remix, the stripped version, Colors Pt. II – give ’em to me I’m worth it. I really like this song sped up and the drop is hype. Check it out.
Alessia Cara had one of my favorite albums last year. I love her songs/voice/everything about her. After the “Here” craze went down a bit (a song I’m still not over) “Wild Things” gained a lot of popularity. I just think this is such an interesting take on the song. Almost a bit Reggae, love the breakdown, and a cool feature of G-Eazy.
I honestly might like this version better than the original. The original “Work” gets a little monotonous but this remix really makes it groove. This ish is SMOOTH.
4. Don’t Let Me Down (W&W Remix) – Chainsmokers ft. Daya
This remix is essentially just “Don’t Let Me Down” 2.0. It doesn’t really do anything THAT different/special, it’s just a really good enhanced version. I usually skip after it gets super bouncy and crazy but the first couple minutes or so are fire.
So this is the only remix on here that’s actually not only remixed but also stripped down and super different from its original version. Beyonce sings a sultry, much lower vocally rendition of her 2003 hit “Crazy In Love”. Fifty Shades was definitely not a good movie but had an awesome soundtrack.
I still remember the first time I heard this remix to “Hello”. Every single girl in that club freaked. out. I mean how brilliant? Take the most popular ballad single in the world at the time (Fall of 2015) and make it a dance jam. So good.
Okay, sorry, one more “Wild Things” remix. I decided to include both on this list because they’re very different. This one’s a bit more dance-in-the-club-y while the other is more jam-in-you-car-y. Both are great. ILY Alessia Cara.
Can Disclosure ever do any wrong? The answer is no, they cannot. The whole Flume album is awesome and this is one of the most popular tracks from it and one of my favorites. This remix is dark and really different.
This one’s a bit of a wild card. I was in my friend’s car on the way to a birthday party and we all wanted something to jam to. She puts this on and we were all like “uh – why is she playing the song from The Sandlot scene where they all get sick on the ride after dipping”? And she was like “just wait for it. I promise.”
And I say the same to you.
“Withdrawal” is a super catchy song by indie/alt. artist Max Frost. He released like 25786 remixes and I listened through to find the best one for YOU. Enjoy.
