Riff: Daft Punk – “The Game of Love”

May 16, 2013

This is the game of love/And it was you/The one that would be breaking my heart/When you decided to walk away

from The Game of Love lyrics by Daft Punk

Odd placement for a comedown track, following a dance-floor sentiment like “Give Life Back to Music.” But fitting blues realism, perhaps, as life can’t be one forever hot-step. Who knows, maybe the love game is an allegory for the music business. Still, though, why the heartache so early?; [LISTEN].
