Retro remixes of recent pop songs

Have any of you come across these channels on YouTube? Generally they take a more recent pop song, and remix it to sound like it came out of the 80s. I have to say, I think some of them are done really well. I'm not a fan of modern pop music so much, but these remixes often make me like the song more. Thought I'd share some, and if anyone else has some favourites, it'd be great to hear them too.

Below is an 80s inspired remix of Ariana Grande's "Into You".

And here's one that really surprised me. I really like this, and have never liked anything with Taylor Swift in it before. A 70s-style bossa nova mix of her song "Cardigan":

Not the same thing, but I love this Latin remix of "Somebody Groovy" by the Mamas and Papas.

These are great, haha! By the way, I'm obsessed with Oprah's facial expressions while dancing in that clip above, makes me laugh so much!

Doesn't that Justin Bieber remix sound exactly like something that could've come out of one of those crappy teen movies from the 80s? šŸ˜‚

All these mixes are better and more listenable than the originals.

The original was obviously released several decades too late

I have found my new hobby. I guess I'll never emerge from the 80s.

During the lockdown, a DJ group has been mixing 50 songs from a single 80-90s year into a 3 minute video. They are currently working their way through the 90s.

^I love that idea! I look forward to going through the 90s stuff in particular as I'm a child of the 90s. Great find!
