Daft Punk – Lose Yourself To Dance

Of the Daft Punk / Nile Rodgers / Pharrell Williams collaborations released this year, Get Lucky got all the attention as the first single from Random Access Memories, but it was Lose Yourself To Dance that really stood out for me. Where Get Lucky was pure 70s disco-throwback, somehow this one manages to marry Nile’s slinky disco guitar work and Pharrell’s falsetto with the Punks’ vocoder wizardry (see 2001’s Discovery) to create something both funky and retro-futuristic.
