Let's talk about Daft Punk

24 posts in this topic

I've liked Daft Punk since that video with the guy in the dog mask back in the day...  The name isn't coming to mind right now though.  Then Around the World came out, and I was really blown away by their innovative approach and creativity.  It was completely different visually and audibly than anything out there.  So, I always kept an ear out for them after that.

 

Then I saw and heard One More Time and LOVED IT.  Just an epic video and song - make that project in general, that is was derived from.

 

So, I'm a casual fan, but I can't say I'm that well versed in ALL OF THEIR WORK. 

 

Those French dudes are cutting edge though...  Them and Justice are some of the most creative artists out there and I think they are so far ahead of the curve, as far as where music is going.

So one day, the radio just started playing Get Lucky over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Like, wtf. This song is mediocre, yet some how it is the "song of the summer" and played every 30 mins.

 

 

first, you have to learn very quick to get over the fact that the radio will forever kill a song the first few days it comes out, and continue to vaporize it throughout the next 6 months...  it's inevitable..  Just stop listening to the radio if it comes to that.

 

second, Get Lucky is a typical club song simply for the message...  know the hype will come with anything that presents itself as a club hit.  it goes with the territory whether the song is that great or not.  Just look at "Like a G6", everything about that song is pathetic, except for the hook (when at a club)...

There is no way that song is a club beat. Do you do this when it comes on?

I've been over any form of techno/house music the last 5 years (about the time it became popular in the grand scheme)...  By no means would you ever worry about me at a club, I don't care who you're with..  My point is it's an upbeat "party" song and that's why it gets hype.  It's a good summer song, if that helps any...
