Pop in your ear buddies and open the illegal music downloading software of your choice — it’s time to play Psychic DJ! Yay!

There’s always a few standout songs on the runway, so let’s act like hipsters and know about them before anyone else. That way we can roll our eyes and be like, “I knew about this song before the artist was even born” while everyone else holds out their phones to Shazaam.

Our three predictions are as follows:

This cover version of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” by Daughter. (First runway to play it: Thursday at BCBG)

ANYTHING by Lorde because she’s fashion’s most recent obsession, but we’re tapping “The Love Club” to be most-played. Don’t forget we have to think like hipsters — indie points will be docked for choosing the more popular “Royals.” (First runway to play it: Thursday at Richard Chai Love)

Latch by Disclosure. It’s steady, sexy, and creates the perfect tempo for models to get their mean-mug swagger on. (First runway to play it: Nowhere…yet)

What are your predictions? Is it one of these three, or something completely different? And if you were djing fashion show, what would you play?

PLEASE tell us. We’re more sick of our music than we are of our closets and need some new beats so we can dRop tHe BaSe.

    Definitely feeling KANYE should take the throne on this. He is the god of power, of creating thunder, so he would be my CHOICE SUPREME. for sure.

      We all know that he’d agree with you. :) And it would also be hard to argue your point. Musical genius.

    Disclosure ft London Grammar – Help me lose my mind

  • Danielle

    Tokimonsta, the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Mount Kimbie for higher energy. Rhye, Jessie Ware, Grimes for more romantic and ethereal shows.

  • Jackie @ Kleiden drew

    Capital Cities, ‘Tell Me How to Live’. WHO wouldn’t strut off that straight up jam?

        Just read it. So the fact that we both love Depeche Mode is enough for us to become best friends, right? Yeah, that sounds about right. #CallMeJenna

    These selections could not be any more on point. The last was my selection and I’m anticipating the first show to showcase it. I think we’ll definitely be seeing Flume in the fashion week soundtrack.
