Daft Punk are a French duo consisting of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and 15 years ago, in 2001, the electronic pair (who are possibly robotic and from another planet) released the hit song, ‘One More Time’.

The song, which was taken from their second album Discovery, took the world by storm and reached Number 2 in the UK singles chart. The song is heavily compressed and auto-tuned and that’s what gives it the signature sound. It is funky, French house and honestly is a timeless tune!

The music video for the song is interesting as it is animated and taken from the pair’s 2003 animated film, Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem.

#FeelGoodFriday: Madeon – ‘Pay No Mind’ featuring Passion Pit

Madeon Banner

Madeon (aka Hugo Pierre Leclercq) is a French music producer; a very young, talented one at that! His debut EP (The City) was released back in 2012 (when he was 17!), and this week sees the release of his debut album, Adventure, at the remarkable age of 20!

This song, Pay No Mind, was released this week and features the American indietronica band, Passion Pit – the accompanying music video is the second in a trilogy. The song itself is a fantastic fusion of indie, electronica and disco. It’s superbly uplifting and majorly reminds me of Daft Punk in their Discovery era (similar to their songs Digital Love and Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger) – such an incredible song, so much love for it!!!

It’s such an amazing day today and this song is making it all the better! What song’s floating your Friday boat today? Share by replying below and RT the link to this page 🙂

#ThrowbackThursday: Modjo – ‘Lady (Hear Me Tonight)’

It’s an insane thought to me, that this song is now nearly FIFTEEN! (Yes, 15!!!!!) years old! That means I was only 12 when this song came out! I distinctly remember buying the CD single of this track – I played it on repeat for weeks on end and I love it just as much now, as I did back then!

The song features a guitar sample of ‘Soup for One’, originally by Chic.

When it was released, it peaked at Number 1 in the charts, back in 2000, for 3 consecutive weeks (10th September 2000 – 24th September 2000). This track was pretty much a one-hit wonder for the French duo – although they released subsequent tracks from their album, the rest failed to enter the Top 10.

I hope you can get your groove on to this track today, as much as I can.

Does this song hold any memories for you? If so, what? What Throwback Thursday are you feeling this week?
