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.

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.

Here’s part 2 of the Summer Music Essentials. Enjoy!

Songs Everyone Loves

These tracks are for the people that hate a certain type of genre or for people that hate every single song regardless of what it is. The people that wish the Beatles were still around and take every opportunity to tell you so.

Mariah Carey – Beautiful (feat. Miguel)

The early contender for the song of the summer sees Miguel (who I admittedly slept on in the 2012 Album’s of the Year post) teaming up with Mariah Carey, in her first single off her upcoming album. The video drops on American Idol tonight. Never thought I’d have a Mariah Carey song on here, but I promise it’s good.
