Madonna - Hung Up (Diplo Remix)

Anyone who knows me, and I mean truly knows me, knows that I think everything Diplo has ever done is brilliant. Well, everything from 2004 on. err...2005. So of course when I heard that he created a remix of Madonna's "Hung Up" - probably the best single of the year - I had to hear it. Unfortunately, the song is somewhat redundant, borrowing a very similar beat as his remix of Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" (see below), and probably not as good as the original, but it's interesting to hear what Diplo does with the song. Other than the first chorus, the song is largely lacking Madonna's voice as the song slowly fades into the Baile sound that Diplo is most famous for. So while I can't say I love it as much as the orig, the song definitely highlights Diplo's incredible talent at mixing. I consider this track less of a remix and more of a mix stolen from one of his many mix tapes, and that alone makes this song worth the price of admission and then some.
