Lists: Five great and strange re-workings of La Roux's "Bulletproof"
British duo La Roux may be the universe's most elastic electro-pop act. It's tough to think of another artist, even Lady Gaga, that has been remixed, mashed-up and covered as ceaselessly, and as well.
In honor of their appearance at the 9:30 Club tonight, Click Track has compiled a list of our favorite iterations of La Roux's most popular and most manipulated track, "Bulletproof."
Colin Munroe: "Bulletproof Monster" (La Roux + Nicki Minaj)
Ace re-worker Monroe take Minaj's verse from Kanye's "Monster," mashes it up with the original track, adds his own vocals in there somehow, and comes up something almost unrecognizable.
La Roux: "Bulletproof" (Foamo's Dubstep Remix)
Foamo surrounds the mothership track with what sounds like thousands of tiny musical soap bubbles.
Lou Barlow: "Bulletproof" (live cover)
The Sebadoh/Folk Implosion frontman hasn't been this tolerable since, well, since this.
(Katy Perry, laser noises and something that reminds us of the Pet Shop Boys, after the jump.)
La Roux: "Bulletproof" (IAMXL remix)
Pure '80s synthpop happiness.
DJ Maggie Mash: "Last Bulletproof Dance Night" (Katy Perry vs. Robyn vs. La Roux)
Not as terrible as you'd think!
Major Lazer and La Roux: "Bulletproof" (Nacey Remix featuring Matthew Hemerlein)
Some people think any pop song can be improved with the addition of trip-hop beats and laser noises. They would be right. From the truly awesome "Lazerproof" mixtape.
