As far as I remember (and granted it was 1980, so my memory may be a little sketchy), Blondie's "Autoamerican" album was released a few weeks before The Clash's "Sandinista".  I believe that the single "Rapture" was also released before the single "The Magnificent Seven".

 
Autoamerican was released in November of 1980, Sandinista! in December 1980.  "Rapture" was released as a single in Jan of 81.  I don't think "the Magnificent Seven" and/or "Magnificent Dance" was released until the spring of 81

Pretty sure I've never heard an electronic remix that was even a small improvement on the original. Pass.

Rhythm Scholar does some very nice remixes.  This one was done to celebrate the 30th anniversary of "Rapture".  Here is a bizarre and surreal video of this song:

Hmm, that Joni Mitchell remix sounds like it would be a fun project to work on.

This really works for me, enjoying more than original.  I think b/c it's fresh - has more energy and not so stale sounding these days.

There was nothing wrong with the original that this version is fixing. But also not different enough to justify its existence.

Maybe it's like politicians - when they need instant cash infusion they go out and give speeches for $400k and they don't say anything new. Perhaps this is an attempt to generate a few sales.

Unnecessary remix. An overt money-grab.

The original version is still my favorite Blondie song.

We almost lost him once in 1990 when he crashed his cycle in L.A., but he came back from that one.  So there's still time to catch him crossing over.
