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.

Leather is a huge trend right now, so finding any of the pieces below will be simple. Get an original Watch The Throne t-shirt for $1000, a fake WTT t-shirt for $100 or a black Old Navy t-shirt for $10- your call depending on how badly you want to be Kanye this Halloween.

Skirt: Nordstrom; pants: PacSun; shirt: Ebay

2. Nicki Minaj

Top 10 Acts to See at Pygmalion

If you’re a U of I student tired of totes ragin’ every night at the krazy keggers at Sigma Delta Zeta Phi Omega Zeta Beta Kayta and want to see good music for 5 days (instead of hearing Bruno Mars and New Boyz at the ∑∆πΩZßK house), this festival is for you. If you’re a Chicago resident still really upset that Pitchfork/Lollapalooza/North Coast had to end, and just a little more music would make you feel better, this festival is also for you. Pygmalion Music Festival can be seen as summer’s last stand, or fall’s bright start. The festival that takes place September 21-25 offers 90 bands playing at 10 different locations throughout the Champaign-Urbana area.

As we did with Lollapalooza, picking the shows you could not miss and basically crafting your schedule for you (It’s ok to admit it), here are the top 10 acts to see at Pygmalion.
