    Which do you like best the regular version of a song or the remixed version?

    Does remixing a song make it better or worse?

    I’ve found that whatever version I hear first and get used to is better.

    Though I am rarely fond, even then, of “live” recordings.

    Performing it just a tad slower than I am used to is a good way to assassinate any piece of classical I like.

    @steveinco I don’t necessarily like the Live (if by live you mean live in concert recordings) either because there is too much noise in the background most of the time to hear what is being sung.

    I usually like multiple versions of the same song….

    Prime example: Don’t Cry by Guns n’ Roses. Both versions are awesome 🙂

    I don’t see the point of re-mixes. Mind you, I’m from the era of vinyl where a scratch on the record is inevitable and the hiccup it causes on the track becomes part of the expected sound, and the track feels weird without the expected scratch.

    I have seen quite a few bands live. One of these days I’ll even list them for you (I have to dig out the stack of programmes from the various concerts).

    The most amazing bands live, were Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and Dire Straits. They took tracks that are well known and extended them incredibly.

    But re the topic of remix, I haven’t yet heard one that improved the original track. They seem to exist just to wring more money out of a gullible fan base.

    I guess I’ve been thinking “remakes” (by a different band) rather than “remixes”, but my comment still applies.

    @strega, be careful of your back. That stack of “programmes” is unnecessarily heavy, what with the extra two letters in each of them. 😛 And who knows how many superfluous “U”s there are in the text.

    @steveinco you have no idea how much my autocorrect loathes the proper English spelling of things. I had to backspace with gusto to get it to accept those ‘extra’ letters. As for the z that keeps getting shoved in when I use the extension ‘ised’ so that I end up with ‘ized’, frankly I’ve given up.

    Some slower tracks benefit from a house remix. I think this is one of the best house remixes ever.

    Don’t be complaining about a zed being shoved in when you know bloody well it’s a zee.

    @simonpaynton I just had a chance to listen to that remix – pretty good, I was impressed 🙂
