Some songs don't sound as good when they're originally made, so a little help comes along the way to bring them into greatness. Here we'll be discussing that, and comparing the original to the remix.

 

 

AlunaGeorge's original just doesn't sound right when you've heard that DJ Snake Trap remix. Honestly, this is the way it should've been all along.

Sounds good but the beat doesn't match L's lyrics.

Love the late 80's/90's house sound of this remix, much better than the original IMO and one of the best house tracks I've heard in a while. Simple but extremely groovy, just like Classic House.

G-Unit has been known for doing remixes better than the original songs, and you can see lots of brilliant remixes in their mixtapes.

Their last dope remix imo was Nah I'm Talkin' 'Bout (remix of "Grindin' My Whole Life").

I think this is an unpopular opinion, but I prefer this version to the original.

In my opinion, the remix is tremendously better than the original. Of course they're great in their own ways, but I just can't get into the original because it's just so.. minimalistic in it's approach.

Fab has a better opening verse in this. And 50's verse is f*cking awesome.

Wouldn't even bump this song if it wasn't for this remix. Makes it 504% better.

The original sounds like a serviceable EDM song for Top 40 radio and dance clubs. The remix really brings it to life.

I find that the song better captures the gritty street life of New York then the original. But the original will always remain legendary in my opinion. Like how the video's story continues in the "One Love" music video.

Went to the mall today and this was bumpin for like the entire time. When I arrived home had to look it up because it was stuck in my head. Jeez! Didn't know this was that old and I've hear it so many times, but I had no interest in researching it, till now. Weird ah?
