10. Casiotone for the Painfully Alone - "Born in The U.S.A."

Bruce Springsteen has seen a resurgence of relevance since Arcade Fire's Win Butler declared his adoration for the Boss. But, playing the original version of this tune would be too blunt and not clever enough. Opt for Redwood City California's Casiotone for the Painfully Alone's 8-bit, Crystal Castles-ish version instead.

9. Arcade Fire - "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)"

Hey speaking of Arcade Fire, why not play this spunky ode to regular life off the group's second album The Suburbs. It'll get the party moving with its tinge of '80s disco.
