Riff: Daft Punk – “Within”

May 16, 2013

There are so many things that I don’t understand/There’s a world within me that I cannot explain/Many rooms to explore, but the doors look the same/I am lost I can’t even remember my name

from Within lyrics by Daft Punk

Side-A, if you’re listening to Random Access Memories in succession, starts to make more sense as a package downer here, with Daft Punk’s pill of choice, the vocoder, narrating a sad robot, key-twinkled ballad about looking within one’s strung-out robot soul to find emptiness. The ironing.
