By switching up a few key lines, the song is transformed into a hilarious kitty themed parody. It includes gems like, “We’re up all night while you purr / We’re up all night brushing fur / We’re up all night it’s a blur / We’re up all night with our kitties.”
Everything about this video is absolutely hilarious, right down to the matching kitty-themed flannel pyjamas. I’m a little concerned that these girls would rather stay up all night with their cats than ‘get lucky,’ but hey, we all know crazy cat ladies are just that – crazy.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America held their annual awards show this week (it’s like the Oscars, but for fashion!), which had all the designers, models, and celebrities strutting to the event. While this awards show doesn’t get as much hype as the year’s other awards shows, if you are serious about fashion then this is a pretty big deal.
One of the big surprises from the night was the video presentation of the nominees for Menswear Designer of the Year. The CFDA managed to wrangle up 30 or so high-cheekbone’d male models and got them to sing Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” while wearing the collection from the nominated designers. While Thom Browne went home with the award, I think it’s safe to say we are all winners just for this video’s existence.
But do you think it’s better than Abercrombie and Fitch’s “Call Me Maybe” model cover extravaganza? Tweet your thoughts to us @ANDPOP.
So we’re a little Daft Punk obsessed right now but it’s only because the robot DJ duo is currently killing it with their latest album, Random Access Memories.
Even if you don’t like Daft Punk, you have to check out this flawless parody of the robots’ “Doin’ It Right.” Titled “Chicken Tonight” by daftcluck, it sounds more like the commercial KFC could only hope would get them some semblance of street cred with those “happenin’” young kids. It’s flawless.

“Horizon” – Daft Punk
As if there wasn’t enough hype surrounding Daft Punk and their long awaited new album, the DJ duo released a bonus track only available in Japan called “Horizon.” Surprisingly, (or completely un-surprisingly, whichever way you want to look at it) the track sounds nothing like a Daft Punk track and more like a haunting track aliens would play at a funeral.
“Do I Wanna Know?” – Arctic Monkeys
Arctic Monkeys fans will be glad to know there may be the possibility of some new music coming from the British rockers. At a recent show in California, the boys debuted a new track, “Do I Wanna Know?” Amidst the screaming fans and hazy video quality, there’s the making of a dark, bluesy track with a driving pace and psychedelic feel.
“I’m Out” – Ciara ft. Nicki Minaj
The teaser video for Daft Punk’s new album gets shredded. Featuring their single “Get Lucky” with Pharrell on vocals and guitarist Nile Rodgers, TopitoTV gets rid of all the audio and replaces it with bad vocals and instrumentals. While we don’t know how Daft Punk would respond to the video, at least we know Rodgers had a good laugh about it, tweeting:
@webabla HA HA! That shredded version has me totally CRYING!!! You’ve made my day with that. I needed a good laugh.

Even if you don’t appreciate the comedic efforts, you could always hit the mute button and admire Hedi Slimane sparkly handiwork for Saint Laurent who dressed everyone for the video.
Get ready to dance the night away to Daft Punk’s funky new song “Get Lucky”.
Featuring the always talented Pharrell Williams, the song sounds like an old-school disco jam and sounds and awful lot like Canadian electrofunk band Chromeo.
‘Get Lucky’ is Daft Punk’s first single off their fourth album titled, “Random Access Memories”, due to come out on May 21. This will be their first studio album since “Human After All”, which was released in 2005.
However, if anyone has been keeping track, the french duo scored the”Tron: Legacy” soundtrack in 2010, which unfortunately seemed to be the best part of the film…
If you’re sick of the hardcore, in-your-face dubstep we hear in many of today’s Electronic Dance Music singles, then perhaps Daft Punk’s highly anticipated new single is worth a listen.
We’re all sick of hearing Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” after blasting it on repeat for a couple months straight. That’s why this mashup by Carlos Serrano works. He chose Daft Punk’s classic “Something About Us” to remix it with. It’s pretty cool considering the two songs sound completely different on their own, but I’m not sure if I’ll listen to this one on repeat.
Still, the song has gotten over 100,000 listens on SoundCloud so far! What do you think of it?
Recently Joe Jonas has been letting everyone know how much he likes electronic music. He cites it as one of his main inspirations for Fast Life. So we had to test just how much he REALLY likes electro.
Don’t worry fans, they’re still not breaking up! Just because Kevin has gotten married and disappeared from the world, Nick has been working on his acting and producing songs, and Joe has been working on his solo album, it still doesn’t mean that the trio are separating! Of course not.
Where have these three brothers been, you may ask? Valid question. But it seems we have found one of them! Joe Jonas can be seen adorning this month’s issue of Details magazine. And might we say, he is looking mighty fine!
In the article, Jonas dishes about breaking out of the teen-idol shell and making a name for himself, sans Nick and Kevin.
“I’m growing up, the fans are growing up,” Joe told Details. “I’ve gone through a lot of stuff in my life so far. There are stories I haven’t really been able to tell. When you’re writing with three people, you wind up with a sound that might be—not average—but, you know, expected.”
The article, entitled “Joe Goes it Alone” (but remember, they’re NOT breaking up), goes on to express Joe’s feelings of going solo:
“We’re not breaking up, we’re just taking a break,” Joe says. “I really have a hope for the fans that got older and went, ‘You know what, I’m really not into the Jonas Brothers anymore,’ that I’m able to catch their ear again with my project and they’re able to go, like, ‘Hey, this is cool stuff, I’m happy listening to this, I’m not embarrassed listening to this.’”
According to Perez Hilton, Joe recently opened up about his upcoming album, and working with producer Danja:
“I think for me the biggest influences are Daft Punk. I love their music. There’s a guy, Frankmusik, out of London, a lot of electro DJs out in Europe are doing some cool stuff right now. I just listen to a bunch of stuff you dance to, kind of electro-based. A lot of stuff that’s so amazing [that] you can create on the computer. I think, for both of us, we are huge fans of the new ‘Tron‘ movie. To be able to go on a musical journey for a while and finally with finding Danja and working with him, we’ve been able to collaborate on something that really works for me. And to find me and not try to mold it into something it’s not, to try and be myself and my music and kind of tell stories and be honest and just have something … when people hear it, hopefully they’ll be able to dance to it and have a good time.”
Hmm…this sounds extremely different from the usual Jonas melodies, making me sceptical to believe it completely. But one thing’s for sure; I will be dancing when this album comes out!
“It’s Joe’s album, it’s not just something put together for him,” Danja told Details. “He’s collaborating with the writing. He’s very different from what you’d expect. All I can say is he’s an adult man. He has a rock-star edge about him.”
Will it be good, will it be bad; will it makes our ears bleed, or leave us singing our praises? So many questions, so little answers, especially keeping in mind that Hollywood Records promised this album in early 2011. Reality check, it’s already mid-March. So where is it?!
Move aside, guitar, there’s a new Hero taking over the video game world: the turntable.
Video game creator Activision has released the much-anticipated massive set list for the DJ Hero video game, which comes out on Oct. 27, according to CHARTattack.
The game features 93 exclusive mixes by some of the industry’s top DJs, including Cut Chemist, DJ Shadow, and the late DJ AM. On the game these DJs slice up songs by artists such as Daft Punk, The Killers, Jay-Z, Public Enemies, and the Beastie Boys.
DJ Hero aims to expand on the technology used in video games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band. The game will use a turntable controller to help immerse players into DJ culture. It will give aspiring DJs the chance to learn DJ techniques including sampling, crossfading, and scratching.
Electronica duo Daft Punk will compose the score for “TR2N,” Disney’s sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic “Tron.”
Billboard confirms the French act has put together a new recording studio especially for the project.
The movie is currently in production in Vancouver and tentatively slated for a 2011 release.
The collaboration marks Daft Punk’s return to the studio following 2005′s “Human After All.” Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter then went on hiatus, before embarking on an extensive world tour in 2007.
They also appeared on the 2008 Grammy Awards with Kanye West, who sampled the duo’s 2001 track “Harder Better Faster Stronger” in his hit single “Stronger.”
