    I 'm a person who never favors musical remixes. Altering the present hits so add to modernize them is not something that I will ever support.

    Some people say that the musical industry is over saturated with artists and the need to bring out something new gave birth to remixes. I feel that in today's time every work industry is over saturated. If one wants to show his talent he should start from the very beginning of composing a song. Altering something that is laready loved by many is not at all a display of talent.

    I have to agree with you and say that I am not a big fan of remixes. I just don't really the point of them. I think it's getting silly how many remix songs there are lately. If you just open YouTube and type in a random song, you will likely get hundreds of remixes as well.

    I much prefer people that make music from scratch and get exposure with their originality and creativity. I don't mind if I hear one or two on the radio but I wouldn't choose to listen to such songs by my own choice.

    Thank god they don't really make remixes of my preferred genre of music - rock.

    Depending on the music style, yes. By the way, many songs get much better after they're remixed. There are lots of great Djs that really do a good job (and not just making the same kind of sound all the time o_O).

    I love remixes. They are always great to listen to. Everyone will agree with me when I say that most remixes are better than the original versions. This is because in the remix mistakes in the original version are minimised and so the song is fine tuned. Take for instance Taylor Swift's "Bad blood". It sounded way better in the remix than in the original version.

    It really depends for me. I usually lean toward not liking remixes, but I've come to find that every once in a while I find a remix that I like a lot. If you don't listen to RAC's stuff, you should check him out. Most of his stuff is remixes of popular songs, and he does an incredible job. He's got a unique style that really plays out when he covers other people's work, which really impresses me.

    Most recently, I discovered a remix of Bryce Fox's song Horns, which I really like. I enjoy both the original and remix, which is incredibly unusual for me.





    Arc North took the song and made it sound a lot darker, which I really dig.

    I agree that remixes do justice to some songs. But there are many old melodies which end up in a disaster because of addition of modern and unsynchronized beats.

    With respect to the old songs (those considered timeless), the application of remixes should be simply forbidden. May seem exaggerated, but timeless songs deserve all consideration.

    I agree. I do not justify remixing and experimenting with the old melodies. If one wants to display his talent then it must be done on an original text and not on something which is actually a hit.

    It really depends for me, on the genre of music and how it is done. However, I tend to enjoy the remixes of a song especially if techno music is involved in it. I usually listen to remixes of songs that were made in the 90's or the early 2000's. Some of them are good while others may just be mediocre to me. It all depends on the beat and rhythm.

    The final results do depend on the best and the rhythm. Some remixed songs are such a big disaster that they are no less than a dream big offense to the original track. I feel disheartened when things like this happen. That is why I feel that fiddling with the old melodies is not justified.

    I am not interested in remix songs, its not create much impact than original composition.
    It delineate the original track.

    Sometimes I do, but sometimes I don't. Not all remixes does justice to the original song. In another tone, it is like listing to mash ups. Sometimes, songs blend well with other songs and sometimes it doesn't. I guess it is all in the arrangement.
