Riff: Daft Punk – “Touch”

May 17, 2013

Kiss, suddenly alive/Happiness arrive/Hunger like a storm/How do I begin?

from Touch lyrics by Daft Punk

There’s an obvious agenda on this cheeky ‘random’ comeback dancefloor slap, teasing hips when Daft Punk feels like it, filling lots of space with comedown sentiments. Studded with 70s pop heavyweight Paul Williams, vocoder babble and sweeping love rhetoric, consider this its satin bridge; [LISTEN].
