Australian production duo Parachute Youth give a deep house spin to Foals' "My Number" on this extended version of the English band's track. The remix isn't a far cry from the original, at least not initially: singer Yannis Philippakis' subdued vocals are left intact, but then the track builds to grand, measured synth strokes that accentuate the hook. The song even skirts into chiptune territory with the catchy blips in the latter half.  

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

The original song is on Foals' most recent album, Holy Fire.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
