Pollin' it right

octobeard, Tuesday, 19 April 2022 16:36 (one month ago) link

I was really worried at first as I only had two ballots for the longest time. I guess Daft Punk deep dive for most people took some time. Well worth it in the end.

Bee OK, Tuesday, 19 April 2022 16:37 (one month ago) link

I see Daft Punk were nice enough to release something new for our poll:

Bee OK, Tuesday, 19 April 2022 17:37 (one month ago) link

from YouTube comments:
The concept for this video echoes that of the "Da Funk" video, in that the track is treated as nothing more than a score against which the story plays out. "Fresh" was directed by Daft Punk themselves; Jonze makes a guest appearance as the director of Charles' film. Daft Punk wanted Charles to return in a happier environment, to cheer up fans who saw him in a depressing situation in the "Da Funk" video. This would see him enjoying an acting career, receiving compliments, and dating Beatrice.

Burnin' was always my favourite video of theirs for the cameos and I particularly loved that smooth stop-start effect with the fire trucks - that technique being part of a surge in similar trendy effects in other music videos in the run up to The Matrix. Love the Fresh video too really wish they would re-up these remastered (as they have done for Around The World).

Cracking poll, thanks Bee OK & nashwan! Top 10 is pretty undeniable really, I had Stardust at #1 but Digital Love is great too.

I'm temporarily detached from my ballot but will post tomorrow. Really enjoyed revisiting all the Roulé & Crydamoure catalogue as part of the voting process, such a shame that no legitimate streams/downloads exist. There's a lot of contemporaneous French house / filter disco that is even more forgotten - thinking of Pro-Zak Trax, Fiat Lux, the Motobass album - which is worth digging up.

HOLY CRAP - I did not expect my #1 Digital Love to be the overwhelming fav. You peeps all have great taste.

That song just has everything: nostalgic yet futuristic and cutting edge, emotes that first crush feel, has an absolutely transcendent instrumental house beat chorus, and features the most epic fucking guitar/vocoder funky solo breakdown ever. I made a booboo and should have voted the video as my #1 too, but ah well, this makes up for it. To me, this is Daft Punk's best song by leaps and bounds, and is sung by them too iirc. Just captures everything about them that I love x10 and is the towering decadence of production and execution I missed on Human After All. And it slaps. Hard.

Thank you Bee OK and nashwan so much for this!

Cranking up the discography made for a great Friday/Saturday here. When the playback got to Digital Love I had classic frisson - goosebumps and lump in throat. An amazing song whose power definitely does not diminish with time.

My daughter had to endure my ramblings about French teenagers making Chicago House. They are one of the best of all time and the best of the best truly sets the standard for everything else I listen too.

Now to re-listen to the '96 Even Further live set and '99 Dalton Expo rave - Thomas on three turntables for two hours under one red light bulb. The latter is one of my most cherished musical memories.

Daft Punk Essential Mix

groovypanda, Sunday, 24 April 2022 08:27 (four weeks ago) link

+1. I wanted to vote for their Essential Mix somehow. I have probably listened to it more than anything else Daft Punk has ever done. For a period in grad school, I studied to it endlessly.

Fantastic poll. Images were A+. Thank you, Bee OK & nashwan!

re: Music Sounds Better With You

At this point it sounds like it’s been done a million times, in 1998 it sounded like it came from another dimension.

― ✖✖✖ (Moka), Saturday, April 23, 2022

I remember feeling like it came from another dimension too

Dan S, Monday, 25 April 2022 00:17 (three weeks ago) link

I like that the middle of One More Time is completely suspended and focused on Romanthony’s vocals. The charisma of Romanthony’s voice in it is second only to that of Benjamin Diamond’s in Music Sounds Better With You

Dan S, Monday, 25 April 2022 00:21 (three weeks ago) link

Bangalter remarked that “the break is so long it's not even the break. The song itself is the breakdown."

Dan S, Monday, 25 April 2022 00:22 (three weeks ago) link

Hated how long that break was the first time I heard it but it's my favorite part of the song now

Vinnie, Monday, 25 April 2022 01:06 (three weeks ago) link

re: Digital Love

That song just has everything: nostalgic yet futuristic and cutting edge, emotes that first crush feel, has an absolutely transcendent instrumental house beat chorus, and features the most epic fucking guitar/vocoder funky solo breakdown ever.

― octobeard, Saturday, April 23, 2022

otm

also the extreme filtering and the Supertramp Wurlitzer added to the suspense

Dan S, Monday, 25 April 2022 01:17 (three weeks ago) link

High five to whoever the other Disco Cubizm voter was

groovypanda, Monday, 25 April 2022 09:34 (three weeks ago) link

Like many people, Da Funk was obviously the first of theirs I heard (read about it 95, but didn't actually hear it till early 96) and was another instant favourite.

First heard it on the superb Laurent Garnier Essential Mix in late 1995 and to this day still think John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13 is going to come in at the end

groovypanda, Monday, 25 April 2022 09:39 (three weeks ago) link

Missed the poll as I was on holiday, will spend the day going through it.

ledge, Monday, 25 April 2022 10:12 (three weeks ago) link

Well it was a shame not to follow along in real time but seems like a fun poll with great images, thanks Bee OK and nashwan.

My hastily cobbled together ballot, I see my #1 of Aerodynamic generated zero discussion - ok it doesn't have the emotional depth of Digital Love or One More Time or Too Long or (pick any other song from Discovery) but that sick guitar sound is like crack to me.

― Vinnie, Monday, April 25, 2022 2:06 AM (seventeen hours ago) bookmarkflaglink

afaict it's on the 'good producer bucket list' to make a track where the break is the most special part of the song.

...basically my fave ~40% of each of the 4 albums. grateful for the poll as a guide to their other projects, a lot of which I wasn't familiar with.

Didn’t somebody mention the fugue-y coda? But regardless, you’re right, this deserves more attention – if only because Aerodynamic seemed to set off that whole Yngwie wank parody style that ripped through rock in the early 2000s.

Nothing much here that wasn't discussed in the rollout, but Paris By Night (from the Irreversible soundtrack) is a mid-tempo acid plodder that I discovered during the voting and grew sufficiently fond of to place.

This commercial is playing all the time right now, it's "Nightcall" by Kavinsky.
