    I was for a very long time under the opinion that remixing classics was only about spoiling a bits and pieces of history - that a track so brilliant that it lasted for decades didn't need to be redone in various versions...

    I've changed my mind!
    Which are your favourite remixes (or even covers if you want) of the really classical stuff?

    Here's a few of mine:

    LCD Soundsystem: No Love Lost (Joy Division)
    Soulwax: You can't always get what you want (Rolling Stones)
    Prodigy: Ghost Town (Specials)

    Luv

    i feel the same way about covers.
    but on the other hand, it is a great chance for younger people to hear some song, than they hear it is remix or cover, and then they learn more about the music...
    like it or not, that's the way of keeping the songs alive. :flower:

    I agree to some extent m.j....Although I find it heartbreaking when some "main-stream-cash-cow" slaughter a precious thing, just to get an easy hit. And I think it's really sad that that's the way young peole gets to hear these treasures.

    It absolutley can be done in a dignefied and even graceful way though.
    Nouvelle Vague is an excellent example. I absolutley love how they take all these new-wave pieces and totally make them their own.
