Daft Punk - Around the World

It really is a great song, while the lyrics are repetitive, listen to everything else

[-] [email protected] 48 points 3 weeks ago

Is there anyone on the internet who doesn’t know Daft Punk or at least this specific song 🤔

[-] [email protected] 42 points 3 weeks ago

Not a single one. I just set my grandmother up on the internet and wouldn't let her on the laptop until she'd listened to this full album.

You're right, the people who do already know deserve to learn something special too.

Here's my personal favorite mix that they've done. Not a lot of people who know them have heard it, but it's absolutely stellar.

I guess I was using the information contained in the meme to formulate my response. Also, plenty people probably haven't seen the video

"Around the world" aren't the lyrics, they're just another instrument. You wouldn't say that the drum beat is repetitive, for example.

[-] toddestan 13 points 3 weeks ago

And here I thought it was referring to "Robot Rock". Though I suppose that's only two words.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 3 weeks ago

But drum is repetitive. That's its function.

[-] [email protected] 14 points 3 weeks ago

Just like it's the function of that sample.

my name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me... Giorgio.

[-] Exusia 15 points 3 weeks ago

Holy shit is that a JoJo reference???

But I do actually like "Giorgio by Moroder". It seems silly but it's served me an inspiring monologue to try new things and find something I to be passionate about. And so I bought a few pairs of headphones and schiit amp/dac to see if music making was what I could be good at. It is not. But I found I loved listening to music on nice headphones, and got a pair of Grados to go with the dac/amp

Sorry I know you don't care just wanted to praise the song lol

[-] synapse1278 8 points 3 weeks ago

Don't worry mate, I am a music gear nerd as well ;) I am really into guitar stuff, effects pedals and amps. My latest acquisition is Astral Destiny by EarthQuaker Devices

Buy it, use it, break it, fix it, trash it, change it, mail, upgrade it, charge it, point it, zoom it, press it, snap it, work it, quick erase it, write it, cut it, paste it, save it, load it, check it, quick rewrite it, plug it, play it, burn it, rip it, drag it, drop it, zip unzip it. Technologic.

Virtually everything Daft Punk did was inspired by disco music.

What was the first mainstream Disco song?

Donna Summer's Love to Love You Baby, in which she repeats, "I love to love you baby" about a million times.

I mean, if you are listening to Daft Punk for lyricism, you're doing it wrong.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 weeks ago

Technologic objects to your statement

I've told the story before, but I worked a MarketPro Computer Show & Sale a million years ago and was stationed next to a booth selling mostly speakers and stereo equipment where the booth owner had brought his 10-ish year old son with him. This son preceded to play "Around the World," full-blast, through an enormous stack of display speakers, instantly filling the entire convention hall. Then he put the song on repeat. All day. No exaggeration, he did not play a single other song for the entirety of the 10 hour shift, just "Around the world, around the world... around the world, around the world.... around the world, around the world" endlessly.

That kid is a legend of trolling.

Around the world

[-] [email protected] 32 points 3 weeks ago

Daft Punk weren't really very good songwriters, but they made up for it by being fantastic producers.

[-] hydroxycotton 31 points 3 weeks ago

And yet it's a million times better than songs like "Gucci Gang"

“We should make a song that hits people at the emotional level, but I don’t know what words to use”

“Emotion you say?”
