Given the tools necessary to properly remix a song, the idea of the remix has only been with us since the 1940's and 50's. The idea of remixes actually being widely used didn't come to fruition until the 60's, when it was quite common in Jamaica for producers to break apart and piece back together tracks to make the music more suitable for their audience. 
It wasn't until that 90's that remixes started becoming legitimately popular on a national level. When they first started being played on the radio and television, I remember not being much a fan. I felt they consistently took a great song and made it worse. Fast forward to now and my mind has been completely changed. Though some remixes may still be a downgrade from the original, many bring out the best in a song, sometimes taking the original to an entirely new level. These 10 tracks below do just that. Enjoy!
