Riff: Daft Punk – “Give Life Back to Music”

May 16, 2013

Let the music in tonight/Just turn on the music/Let the music of your life/Give life back to music

from Give Life Back to Music lyrics by Daft Punk

Dance-pop’s iconic knob-twiddlers ditch samples, hire a bevy of live talent on Columbia’s dime to “Give Life Back to Music.” Could have gone one of two ways. Thank the underground 80s disco Gods of LA yore that the two helmet-wearing French are the best nerds for the job. Queue the vocoder; [LISTEN].
