    In general, do you prefer the original versions of songs or the remixes of songs? It can be any genre, and feel free to give examples.

    I used to not like remixes of songs (especially of video game OSTs), but I’ve warmed up to OST remixes. I still usually prefer the originals over the remixes.

    I dislike most remixes. Slapping a drawn-out electronic beat in between the verses of a pop song rarely sounds good. Video game remixes on the other hand are a different story. It’s always exciting to see a fan’s interpretation of a soundtracks. Especially if it’s from an older game with outdated synths.

    It really depends I really do like some remixes of old songs but the original Pokémon Intro still gives me nostalgia trips.

    Mostly I dislike remixes. I get really into music and remixes just ruin the emotion behind any given piece and replace it with electronic sounds. Only on very rare occasions can someone enhance or remake the theme to be something entirely unique and that's when I like a remix.

    It really really varies. I am interpreting things like covers under "remixes" here and certain covers just sound better to me (huge bias for NSPs covers) For things like video game music I really enjoy orchestral covers and some remixes but typically they have to stay close to the original (GlitchxCity comes to mind here)

    I like electronic music but not as a remix of something that wasnt originally.
