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.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
