I’m so happy right now. So a few days ago,  I was trolling through YouTube, and stumbled across this niche little corner of the internet, where absolute LEGENDS, are taking popular, current songs from the radio, and creating 80s versions of them. Like someone say genius. Genius.

I picked a few of my favourites, you’re welcome. Let me know which ones you enjoyed in the comments! Also, can we just appreciated the amazing covers?


Closer – The Marlboro Smokers – we all know who actually released this song, but the name is probably the best part, besides the actually amazing guitar solo that features in this remix.














What Do You Mean It’s 1985








Focus – Ariana Grande – I feel like Ariana’s voice was literally made for the 80s.













Childish Gambino – Redbone (70s Remix) – okay, this is the outlier that is a 70s remix, but it cannot be left off this list.







Wrecking Ball 80s Version










Katy Perry – I Kissed A Girl 80s – Katy is driving me up the wall recently, but had she released this version, rather than the original, I would have loved it so much.









Rihanna – 90s Bitch Better My Money – again, this one isn’t exactly the 80s, but I’m a 90s baby and I love this remix so much, nostalgic as heck.















80s Remix: Selena Gomez – Bad Liar – so good. So, so good.












Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj – Bang Bang – um so if there’s anything better than this remix, it’s the video the producer made to go along with it.











80s Remix: Arian Grande – One Last Time – again, Ariana’s voice was made for the 80s.



80s Remix: Cool For The Summer – they’ve completely changed the rhythm of the chorus, and I really don’t mind, I’m not mad at all. And that sax.





80s Remix: Into you – Ariana Grande – this. This is the song that got me hooked.






80s Remix: Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You – play. this. at. the. club. This is my favourite. Hands down. No competition, no question. The best one. Which is why it’s last. Those of you who persevered through all of these, deserve this absolute gem.





I hope you liked this post. I liked putting it together because it gave me an excuse to scour YouTube for the best ones. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Let me know what you think!



  1. I enjoyed these remixes a lot, especially What Do You Mean It’s 1985. Dang, your blog is actually awesome. Count me in as a regular visitor.
