We Are Young (feat. Janelle Monáe) [Alvin Risk Remix] - Single Tracklist:
I know I'm gonna get a TON of hate because of this but, it's better than the original. Original= catchy, annoying, impossible to get out of your head, mainstream pop garbage. I mean you can't go anywhere where the original isn't playing. But the Alvin Risk remix adds melodic synths and beautiful drum build ups that make this song much more "fun." to listen to. Plus Janelle Monae's part isn't in this remix. I think she killed the original with her "Just carry me home tonight". If you like Alvin Risk and realize how much of a musical genious he is you'll love this. EDM makes all pop sound mediocre. Like this then you should give Bruno Mars- Locked out of heaven (The M Machine Remix) a listen. Don't listen to the haters and buy this. They are all just people who have been brainwashed into thinking pop is good. Pop, Pop go away because EDM is here to stay.
I hate the original version of this song. It was so SLOW and boring. Then this absolutely BRILLIANT remix came and saved the day! I finally said that this song wasn't that bad, it just needed a good remix, like this one. It is fun and fast paced, while keeping the originality of the song. It is worth every cent of money you pay for this song. This remix saved the failure of the original and I highly recommend that you purchase this remix. Wonderful Just Wonderful.
To talk about the other reviews wondering why this remix is popular....IT'S BECAUSE IT'S FANTASTIC ALVIN RISK IS GREAT and he was great enough to remix one of there songs so please don't listen to the one stars there dreary and pathetic attempts at reviews. Buy it if you love electronic dance music, and because this is where music is heading
Im sorry, but i hate this remix. We are young is a song that never gets old and is inspirational and AwesomeSauce, but this remix...just isnt, Fun. should leave their songs alone because they are AwesomeSauce just the way they are.
Four Tet seems to be the only project that can remix anymore. Remember the number one rule of remixing songs: either make the song better than it was, or at least add something edifying to the original. Anyone can remix. It takes an artist to improve on a song that is presumably already great. Alvin Risk should be an SNL "crunk" skit.
We used part of this song in our dance finale! Our dance finale was like 5 different songs...the first four songs were all choreographed and the last song (we are young-remix) we could do whatever we wanted! So it was like a 30 second jam out session on stage to this song! LOVED IT! :)
This is the remix that the Sirius|XM BPM plays. I like the original, but I love this remix. The sped-up vocals are quite nice and the pitch changes work quite nice as well! PS. I'm a pretty big EDM fan.
Alvin Risk probably knew the risk he was taking by doing this. The fans of this song (the original) most likely hate techno/electronic music, which has been proved by the ratings and comments bellow. Alvin Risk remixes dubstep/house music, and also produces his own. Give him a break. This is amazing, i love it. Im a dubstep/house person, and this is outstanding, i dont care who you are.
I am a dedicated Fun. fan and I love the original. The person who wrote this obviously doesn't know what a beat is or how to structure music in a way that makes it not torture to my ear holes. You should market your sound to deaf people.
Ok, I don't have the greatest of taste of music but this was good, REALLY good remix, the original was for people with a soothing slow taste this is a whole different flavor, this is a more exciting "hey get up and freaking dance" taste, definitely more exotic not the same as the original. The original is always good but this is as well so, it all depends on your taste...
This is not a remix - this is what someone thinks a remix should sound like, by someone who thinks that "techno" should all sound like a Casio keyboard falling down steps. Give this song to a professional DJ like Josh Harris or Jason Nevins or someone who's style matches the song.
