Daft Punk: Get Lucky

It be­came one of the most in­deli­ble im­ages of 2013: four sil­hou­ettes backed by a blaz­ing sun­rise. The cor­re­spond­ing sound­track, how­ever, is what set the mu­sic universe on fire. A hy­brid of clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary dance mu­sic sen­si­bil­i­ties, Get Lucky kept the world “up all night” for the bet­ter part of 2013. The ques­tion wasn’t “who’s heard the new Daft Punk sin­gle” but “who hasn’t?”

In the sec­ond decade of the 21st cen­tury, only a few songs reach the level of ubiq­uity that Get Lucky achieved this year. The rea­son for that is more than luck. It’s the in­di­vid­u­als be­hind those four shad­ows: Daft Punk mem­bers Thomas Ban­gal­ter (gui­tar) and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (drums), Phar­rell Wil­liams and Nile Rodgers. Phar­rell might ask “What is this I’m feel­ing?” but we all know. It’s the most in­fec­tious groove of the year.
