As much as I try to stay from remixes, every once in a while I come across a remix or a mashup that just completely blows me away. The list is small, but here are some of my favourite remixes that, in my opinion, are even better than their originals.
Use Somebody (RAC Remix) – Kings of Leon
Puppets (Royksopp Remix) – Depeche Mode
Sadness is a Blessing (Gold Panda Remix) – Lykke Li
Animal (Peter Bjorn and John Remix ) – Miike Snow
I Don’t Know What I Can Save You From (Royksopp Remix) – Kings of Convenience
Not to be left behind are some of my favourite mashups. Kudos to DJ Earworm, who seamlessly takes 25 okay songs and makes one hell of a fantastic one.
Knocked Up – Kings of Leon/Lykke Li
Trash/Circus – The Whip/Britney Spears (Fantastic job by The Whip, who are to be credited for putting this mashup together. The songs fit together perfectly. Unfortunately Britney doesn’t look too happy about it in the photo.)
United State of Pop 2009 – DJ Earworm
