    It depends.

    Generally I'd say the original, because at the end of the day they'er the one's who made it. Alot of times artists butcher songs with remixes as well. Every so often you do get awesome remixes though and they add something special to already great songs.

    As a general rule of thumb though, original!

    Original is good.. but sometime the remixes end up being better and to the sound of the current generation.. and it is true.. that without the number of remixes i would have never heard about the originals..

    I don't mind a good remix. What I don't like are people trying to make money out of putting good songs to some sort of awful dance remix (read that club version of The Choirboys - Run to Paradise, and DJ Sammy's entire catalogue)

    Remixes should be outlawed. They are pathetic. Can't these disco-techno junkies come up with their own material? Leave the originals alone - we have enough covers by bands to **** 'em up, so don't make it worse with remixes

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    What's with this question? It's worded like either EVERY remix ever is better than EVERY original, or vice-versa. Generally speaking I don't see the point of just re-arranging someone elses song, but I'm sure there's a remix somewhere which does actually sound better than the original.

    But, taking a normal song and making it "dancable" by putting a dull thud at the back of it? No thanks.

    There have been quite a few songs that have sold better on the back of remixes. For example, Starsailor - Four to the Floor.

    And I know you said better. And I know that the original version of Four to the Floor is better than the rmix. But I guess that's objective...
