Well, this is one way to shake off those Monday morning blues. Thank you, internet, for this. Just imagine what could have been.

Here’s what it would sound like if Michael Jackson was the one featured on Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky.” Just tweak the pitch and speed a little bit and Pharrell Williams quickly morphs into the King of Pop. As you would expect, it’s incredible.

“So I found out just by pitch shifting Get Lucky, the track sounds a lot like Michael Jackson. The ‘He-hee’s,’ ‘Woo’s,’ ‘shamonas’ and other MJ sounds developed on their own when the track sped up,” says creator Maim Ixed on YouTube.

For those of you who ran “Get Lucky” into the ground this past weekend with repeated plays (and who didn’t?), here’s a way to get over the repetition and keep listening to the track:

Daft Punk’s first new (non-soundtrack) song in about eight years has seen incredible but predictable buzz since it (officially) dropped last Friday morning. It not only flew up the iTunes charts, but reportedly set the record for the biggest streaming day for any single track on Spotify in both the U.S. and the U.K.

    I’d compare the bridge to Michael Jackson’s Say Say Say With Paul McCartney…

    Def a few strings, samples, riffs from Off the Wall.

    Daft Funk have prized some rythmic gems from Off the Wall. If you listen to the track ”off the wall’ you can hear the sample in the background that was used and developed on Get lucky, Great Tune!
