The Contestants: Daft Punk vs. Mobius Band
In This Corner -- Daft Punk: Originally released on the robotic duo's genre-bending 'Discovery' album in 2001, this gem was that record's third single, released in the shadow of the commercial success of 'One More Time.'

On this tribute to Daft Punk, they ditched the samplers for some acoustic guitars to showcase the tune's solid structure. If you can take the beat out of a dance song and it still sounds good, you have a winner.
