"Get Lucky" by Daft Punk is probably the most over-covered song of 2013. But if you're looking for a good, alternate version of the tune, look elsewhere. Florence Welch is somewhat inebriated and doesn't know all the words, but it's somewhat entertaining in a watching-your-drunk-friend-do-karaoke kinda way.
Last Friday night, in a moment of apparent abandon, Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine) hopped on stage with British cover band Sourberry and did impromptu covers of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and the Gossip’s “The Way Of Control.” Of course the performance was captured for digital posterity by a member of the crowd, and has by now “gone viral.” It’s probably the single best thing that will ever happen to the members of Sourberry. For Welch, it’s maybe something less than a career highlight: She appears to be at least slightly drunk, and she obviously doesn’t really know the lyrics to “Get Lucky.” (Who does?) To her credit, she belts it just the same, although it’s not really meant to be belted, so … Hey, she’s having fun up there, right? Check it out.
