1. Jay Z – “Show Me What You Got”

This rendition of Hova’s 2006 instant classic isn’t something we know we needed but are extremely grateful for receiving. 

2. Daft Punk – “Get Lucky”

Like the legend of the Phoenix, this cover of “Get Lucky” will have you ready to be up all night to get funky.

3. Kanye West – “Touch the Sky”

We can testify that this horn-laden masterpiece will leave you feeling like you can touch the sky.

4. Pharrell – “Happy”

Clap along if you feel that this rendition of Pharrell’s global hit left you with some extra swagger in your step.

5. Eurthymics – “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)”

A bumping brass section, dynamic drummers, and angelic harmonies are just a few things that this cover is made of.

6. Michael Jackson – “Rock with You”

The way these trumpet trills bring down the house will leave you wishing you stuck with those band lessons in middle school.

7. Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars – “Uptown Funk”

Too hot, hot damn. ’Cause the Soul Rebels funk gon’ give it to you.

8. Nirvana – “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Grunge gets a makeover with this bad-brass baritone-blasted version of one of the ’90s greatest hits.
