Bawley (Hearts) 2013: Top 5 Covers of the Year

5. Dirty Projectors - Climax (Usher)

Sugary sweet harmonies and sexual tension turned up to 10. Hot (link)

4. Spiritualized - Free Your Mind (Cut Copy)

Beyond the title I can't recognise any of the original in this. Pretty much a J Spaceman original. (link)

3. Dinosaur Jr. - Entertainment (Phoenix)

Dinosaur Jr. kept the originals lyrics but in every other way this could be a J Mascis original. (link)

2. Ms Mr - Dance Yrself Clean(LCD Soundsystem)

This nostalgia hit started life as a 'like a version' cover, the band liked it so decided it was good they recoded and released a studio version. (link)

1. Stephen Colbert, San Cisco, Fall Out Boy, Daughter, Postmen, Noy Alooshe, George Barnett, Igor Presnyakov, The Stepkids, Sam Sparro, Skylar Grey, Peter Serafinowicz, Peace and Mystery Jets, Jessie J, Will.I.Am, Black Simon & Garfunkel, Wilco, Florence Welch, Halestorm, You, Me, Your Mum, Pretty Much Everyone - Get Lucky (Daft Punk)

Like the legend of the phoenix. In 2013 Get Lucky has been covered and covered again. Pretty much everyone has had a shot. The Get Lucky Supercut mashes the highlights and lowlights into one megamix
She's up all night 'til the sun
I'm up all night to get some
She's up all night for good fun
I'm up all night to get lucky
We're up all night 'til the sun
We're up all night to get some
We're up all night for good fun
We're up all night to get lucky
