It’s undeniable that M83’s “Midnight City” is one of the top songs of 2011.  The original encapsulates you as Saturdays = Youth did over three years ago.  There is just something magical about the song over all, and The Knocks figured out how to keep that magic in their cover.  Mandy Lee’s voice overpowers the track in a good way, and while M83’s original might have been a tad more upbeat,  The Knocks killed it on this cover.  I find that while there are endless remixes out there, covers are much harder to come by.  But I must say when you stumble across one like this it is something special.
