Riff: Daft Punk – “Lose Yourself to Dance”

May 16, 2013

I know you don‘t get a chance to take a break this often/I know your life is speeding and it isn‘t stopping/Here take my shirt and just go ‘head and wipe up all the sweat, sweat, sweat!

from Lose Yourself to Dance lyrics by Daft Punk

Easily the diamond prism moment of Daft Punk comeback verite, rife with disco bell sparkles, handclaps and robo-mod talk boxin’ – “c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon” and don’t dare try and fight Pharrell‘s best MJ howls, nor Nile Rodgers’ laser funk sweeps, “lose yourself,” brother, “to dance;” [LISTEN].
