You might get luckier without Pharrell Williams – there’s an abundance of Get Lucky versions, covers, remixes and reinterpretations that tweak Daft Punk’s latest hit single into something even better than the original. Stay tuned – we won’t hit you with bad jokes about how to prepare to get.. you know.

PV NOVA

One of the best things about Get Lucky? Take this evolution-o-track by French artist PV NOVA – hammering through the track through a century of mainstream music sounds to show us how our parents, grandparents and ancestors would have partied to their version of Get Lucky. Pure brilliance.

GEORGE BARNETT

If PV NOVA was the cultural ambassador of Get Lucky, George Barnett surely is the Dr. Feelgood of this funk meme gone gold! Just look at his face. And the mix is quite good as well – crank it up!

ALI BRUSTOFSKI

New Jersey singer/songwriter Ali Brustfoski turns the whole track upside down – noticed how different the lyrics sound when it’s sung by a girl? Videowise – it’s quite a bit of sunshine.

JESS GREENBERG

London-based singer and wonder girl Jess Greenberg also covers `Get Lucky` with nothing but an acoustic guitar – completely un-electronic and very refreshing after all the funk we’ve been getting lately!

HARDSTYLE VERSIONS (KNUMSKULL & PERCEPTOR)

Hardstyle seems to be the massive floorfiller these days, molding all chartbreakers into 160BPM stompers and Daft Punk isn’t an exception – so much that we give you two different versions to pick your favourites! (And talcum the floor before putting on your shuffling shoes!)

DRUM’N’BASS VERSION

There’s a TC bootleg version for you – these grooves are crying for the D’n’B treatment and TC’s giving them a fair soothing – nothing you couldn’t handle!

DAUGHTER

Enough of the bouncy and the harsh! Daughter’s Elena gives you a very different version on how to Get Lucky – or more like How To Be Really Sombre and Consequently, Possible Unlaid.

BRETT DOMINO TRIO

If you were looking for lols all the way, Brett Domino Trio’s going to give you what you wanted.

KNOWER

You remember PV Nova’s version? Although their prognosis about 2020 sound isn’t spot-on, Knower should take their place. Slightly odd and slightly more brain-scratching than the original, this one’s going to appeal to friends who are electric.
