Remixed is the first remix album by Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan, released in Canada on 4 July 2001 by Nettwerk and in the United States on 16 December 2003 by Arista Records. It includes various dance club versions of McLachlan's songs, remixed by DJs such as William Orbit, Tiësto, BT, and Rabbit in the Moon.


Remixed features mostly new remixes of songs which originally appeared on McLachlan's studio albums: Solace (1991), Fumbling Towards Ecstasy (1993) and Surfacing (1997). Three tracks were previously released on club compilations or 12" promotional singles: "Possession" (Rabbit in the Moon Mix) in 1995, "I Love You" (BT Mix) in 2000 and "Sweet Surrender" (DJ Tiësto Mix) in 2000. Remixed also features "Silence" by Delerium and McLachlan, which became one of the greatest trance songs of all time. Here, it was remixed by Tiësto.

In early 2002, the edit of "Angel" (Dusted Remix) was released on the "Angel" single in the United Kingdom. Later in 2002, the edit of "Fear" (Hybrid's Super Collider Mix) was included on the Roswell soundtrack. Also in 2002, the edit of "Plenty" (Fade Mix) appeared on the second Queer as Folk soundtrack.
