Yup, I’m still playing this song on repeat. Stuck in my head since the first clip at Coachella, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” released on the duos masterful Random Access Memories, has seen numerous covers and remixes since the day it officially dropped. My favorite song in quite some time, I figured it’s only right we pay some more appreciation to it. The track is still number 1 on the international Spotify charts and number 2 on the iTunes ones. Almost 2 months since the CDQ version came onto the interwebs, the best reproductions have had more than enough time to stand out. Top 5 covers and top 5 remixes after the jump. In case you forgot the original… here it is.
The first offering from their upcoming album Bankrupt!, Phoenix is back with the sparkly synths and catchy hooks that’ll have you singing along in an arena or summer music festival in no time. “Entertainment” is the first single since Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix released in 2009, and I think it was worth the wait. This album should be a good one. Enjoy!
While everyone all over the nation was talking about the Tupac “hologram” (read: “non-physical illusion”) standard set by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, the Black Lips once again proved their place at the forefront of cutting edge music culture when they were joined by a “physical illusion” of Notorious B.I.G. for an unprecedented onstage collaboration.
You read that right. Black Lips and Big Poppa. Flower punk and hip-hop. Simply magic.
