  1. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) by The Cure

    Been a huge fan of The Cure since the mid 80s when I first heard Close To me from their The Head On The Door album. It was only obvious that they would end up remixing their songs in the future. So when Mixed Up came out in 1990 I was quite excited to check it out. Although Mixed Up was not much of a remix album. It was mostly extended versions of their hits from their recent big Disintegration album so it was obvious that Elektra Records put out this remix album Mixed Up. But there are the few remixes on the album like the two most obvious songs that definitely sound like are The Walk (Everything Mix) and In Between Days (Shiver Mix) but the rest of the cuts on Mixed Up are mostly extended versions. Still worthy to own Mixed Up if you don’t have it as longer versions of Cure songs are better than the shorter versions!!! Luckily there was this single for the main song off of Mixed Up, Never Enough which included the best remix that was not on the album Mixed Up. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) is the best of them all. Now since then countless remixes of Cure songs have been done but at the time the best remix of a Cure song was on not on the remix album! So it was a bit disappointing. Luckily Elektra Records decided to add that remix to the single to Never Enough. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) is remixed by Mark Saunders who was one of the big remixers from that era. He’s produced and mixed and remixed some of the best UK artists from that era like Depeche Mode, Erasure, Cathy Dennis, The Farm, Coldcut featuring Lisa Stansfield and Siouxsie & The Banshees.

    If you are a fan of The Cure and remixes check out some of these other great remixes of Cure Songs. Blank & Jones remixing A Forest is pretty darn cool! And The Walk (Infusion Mix) is also worth listening to or actually owning. And if you love Robert Smiths vocals and love electronic dance music then certainly you have to know about Junior Jack’s Da Hype which samples Don’t You Want My by Human League. Highly recommended!

  2. Beach Bump (Wildflower Mix) by Baby Ford

    Twenty years ago this remix to Beach Bump got me grooving, grooving real good. I caught a listen to it just the other day in my iTunes and wow I’m surprised that it’s still sounding as fresh as it sounded back when it first came out in 1990. The original Beach Bump is off of Baby Fords “OOO” The World Of Baby Ford album which also includes a cover of Children Of The Revolution. Known as one of the guys that kick started the Acid House movement, Baby Ford is one of my all time favorite musicians. There’s a whole list of tracks of his that I still listen to over and over again including Disconoddy, Oochie Koochie, Fetish, Move On, Children Of The Revolution, Normal, Chikki Chikki Ahh Ahh and this cut Beach Bump. Check it out you’ll know what I mean by still sounding fresh today.

  3. Justify My Love (The Beast Within Mix) by Madonna

    This (The Beast Within Mix) version of Madonna’s Justify My Love has got to be one of the oddest Madonna remixes. It’s very different than her typical remixes she hired like Junior Vasquez, Paul Oakenfold and Tracy Young that have done remixes for her in the past but this one is remixed by Lenny Kravitz and it’s really good – odd but good. It’s mostly a downtempo version with Middle Eastern instrumentation and Madonna speaking what seems to be verses from the Bible.

    The original version of Justify My Love is off of the Immaculate Collection and this remix is not as good as the original but still pretty nice to check out and enjoy. The video to Justify My Love was banned from MTV but it’s definitely a work of art. Those of you who have not seen it check it out below.
