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.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
