British songstress Ellie Goulding wields one of pop's most distinct voices and, on this remix by White Sea, her track "Anything Could Happen" gets a new electric sheen. Layers of Goulding's voice are spliced to create rich harmonic melodies, and the track pummels forward with skittish percussion. The original feels warm and inviting, but this reworking sounds dark, powerful and ominous.

The original version of "Anything Could Happen" appears on Goulding's upcoming album, Halcyon, out October 9th. The album is available here for preorder.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
