  1. Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend (Swing Cats Mix) by Marilyn Monroe


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Ok this is actually a really, really good remix of the Marilyn Monroe classic song. This remix for Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend by Swing Cats is from the remixed versions of Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend single that was released in 2000 and also this remix was featured on the 2005 Greatest Hits Remixed CD of Marilyn Monroe hits. The Swing Cats have taken the very mellow easy listening original of Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend song and have given it the updated, swing dance remix treatment that I really, really dig. It’s fun, lively and quite update with Marilyn’s very sexy vocals. It’s the perfect upbeat song for a nice party or if you want to surprise your friends throw it into a nice mix and catch them totally off guard and surprise them.

    Enjoy!

  2. Metal Disco (Legowelt VS. Orgue Electronique Remix) by Hong Kong Counterfeit


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This awesome remix of Metal Disco dates back to 2000 originally. Then a couple of years later I kept hearing it all over the place on compilations and mixes etc. It’s got that very sexy, sleazy dark electro tinged dance music that’s huge in underground clubs in Germany in cities like Berlin and Munich! It still sounds very fresh and doesn’t feel a bit dated. Hong Kong Counterfeit were associated with DJ Hell’s label International Deejay Gigolo’s and this release is off of the Munich label Erkrankung Durch Musique. This remix by Legowelt Orgue Electronique of Metal Disco has been given the increased BPM treatment and the two versions original and remix version of Metal Disco sound completely different. Both are too cool. Enjoy!

    Hey Big Spender! This remix is off of Shirley Bassey’s remix greatest hits CD that came out in 2000. It’s a great collection of her greatest hits remixed. I think they got the idea after she did that song History Repeating with The Propellerheads which actually became a pretty big hit and was licensed to numerous films and commercials then you know the rest. So this remixed hits set is pretty awesome and I still listen to it now and then! It’s got a who’s who of guest remixers and the remixes are top notch with Big Spender being the standout remix. It’s fast very lively and energetic. Pretty much like a Fatboy Slim track circa 1998 but slightly better. I don’t know much about Wild Oscar … I looked them up on Discogs but they don’t have much credit. Either way they have done a pretty darn good remix. Check both original and remixed version of Big Spender out below.

  4. Ocean Beach (Cybophobia Cinematic Remix) by Black Might Orchestra Samples Lujon by Henry Mancini

    I love Ocean Beach by Black Might Orchestra. It’s a cover of the late great Henry Mancini’s Lujon track. Lujon is actually one of my favorite tracks from Henry Mancini … it’s a beautiful and sexy downtempo jazzy cinematic masterpiece and Black Mighty Orchestra have taken parts from Lujon and sampled it to an electronic chillout hit. You’ve probably heard Ocean Beach on countless chillout compilations and it’s still great to have as background music for a dinner party or to relax to at home.

    Check out both versions below and write a comment about it!

    You can find these songs and a bunch of other great tracks off of both albums pictured above.

  5. Intro by Alan Braxe And Fred Falke Samples Crush On You by The Jets

    Intro by Alan Braxe And Fred Falke is a fun, groovy and festive dance track. It samples the track Crush On You by The Jets. But there’s also mention that Crush On You by The Jets was originally sampled by The Wee Papa Girls in a track called Get In The Groove and that is the sample that Alan Braxe And Fred Falke have used for this track but who knows. You be the judge.

  6. Riders On The Storm (Ibizarre Remix) by The Doors


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a pretty old remix – almost 10 years old now but I do like it. It’s the classic Riders On The Storm track by The Doors made into a chillout – downtempo track. It’s been stripped of most of the instruments (at least the guitars and drums) so you can lay back to it on a sofa at home sipping cocktails with your friends or tea with a book.

    Once you listen to it though you will notice there’s not much difference between both tracks – it’s just slight but you can tell the two apart as the original still sounds very 60′s hippie rock and the remix is more loungy.

  7. U.K. Girls (Physical) by Goldfrapp


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a pretty cool and chill version of the 80s Olivia Newton-John track Physical by Goldfrapp. This is off of the Utopia Ep which contains several remixes of Utopia and has a couple of bonus tracks like this cover. This isn’t your traditional cover it’s more like a mash-up although I think it’s just two songs as one.

    I like this version by Goldfrapp especially since it does not sound like the original high nrg early 80s dance pop song. It’s quite cool and moody. I think it’s more along the line of Goldfrapp’s Felt Mountain style of chill – trip hop sound that made them huge. I think this remake would have also worked if they used their electro glam synth sound that was hugely sound of the Black Cherry album. I would have appreciated some remixes of this track as well – would have been fun but I get the focus of the Utopia single is Utopia and not U.K. Girls (Physical).

    What do you think of the two versions?

  8. The Final Countdown 2000 by Europe


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This remix of the classic synth metal track by Europe has definitely gotten the dancefloor kick to it but since it came out almost a decade ago it sounds a bit tired (not too much) but still works. The original is definitely a classic. I remember listening to it back in the mid 80′s when I was a teenager – I was a closet metal fan I liked some of the bands like Europe so this was definitely a sight for sore ears when it came out almost 10 years ago. Remixing metal music and making it for the dancefloor was not something I was really used to back then but I surely enjoyed this track much when it was released back then.

    I can’t figure out who did the remix – the only name that comes up is Brian Rawling. If you know the details please feel free to write and post a comment so I can figure it out.

    The original version is still classic but I do like the remix. What do you think?
