"Megamix" is a 1988 single by German band Boney M. The single peaked at #1 in the French charts and was a minor success in the UK where it peaked at #52. The megamix is a medley of remixed Boney M. hits, "Rivers of Babylon", "Daddy Cool" and "Rasputin", the 12" version being extended with "Ma Baker" and "Gotta Go Home".

The B-side of the German single, a remix of the group's 1978 hit "Rasputin", was issued as an A-side in the UK where the Megamix was backed with a remix of their 1978 chart-topper "Mary's Boy Child - Oh My Lord".
