Adam Lambert has come such a long way from his start on American Idol that sometimes it’s hard to remember he was ever even on it.

Between having 10 songs hit the Hot 100, being the first openly gay artist to top the Billboard 200 with his album Trespassing, touring with Queen as the lead vocalist for Queen + Adam Lambert, and his recent appearance as “Eddie” in The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, Lambert is continually leaving his mark on music.

To reinforce just how far-reaching his influence is, here are five of the best Adam Lambert songs remixed.

Adam Lambert - “Whataya Want From Me” (Jason Nevins Remix)

It may be extending the original by almost an entire three minutes, but Jason Nevins' remix of this Adam Lambert song is anything but boring, with the underlying bass going it just gives you more time to lose yourself in the track.

Adam Lambert - “Mad World” (DJ Németh House Remix)

"Mad World" is a relatively somber-sounding track, with the piano making it all the more eerie. So to hear it pulsing and with a bass drop at 1:30 is too good to pass up.

Adam Lambert - “If I Had You” (Dangerous Muse Remix)

After hearing this track, it's hard to picture it any other way. "If I Had You" was meant to be heard in all its up-tempo glory, with a stutter of Lambert's vocals.

Adam Lambert - “Better Than I Know Myself” (Robert Marvin & Shearer Remix) 

The use of bass in the intro is one of the highlights of the entire remix, giving Adam Lambert's song "Better Than I Know Myself" new life as a jam you could see you and your squad walking into the club to.

Adam Lambert - “Ghost Town” (Blood Diamonds Remix)

The use of echoes and vibrations as the sharp drums lead into the chorus help maintain the phantasmal feel of an actual ghost town, without leaving it too close to the original Adam Lambert song.
