Top 5 Daft Punk tracks



I've been a big fan of Daft Punk, ever since I first heard their song "One More Time", back in '02. I heard it alot but never figured out their name until a few years later. Then I ordered their CD (back when I had my old Sony CD walkman) and when I finally got my own computer I downloaded of all their work, although I'm not particularly fond of their latest album Human After All which seemed very repetitive and rushed. On this list I'm going to examine each track.

1. "One More Time" from Discovery
Well this is the track that I loved from the very start. The vocals are slightly distorted with auto-tune which is makes it sound very cool. Of course like all Daft Punk songs it can be pretty repetitive but the beat is bouncy to not mind it very much.
2. "Revolution 909" from Homework 
An instrumental track, the beat is nothing short of awesome. The intro to the song is basically the police trying to break up a rave. The rest of the song has a very nice groovy bassline along with some fine 808 programming. The only vocals in the song is the sound of a crowd chanting "Daft Punk yo" for the majority of the track.
3. "Harder Better Faster Stronger" from Discovery 
A signature Daft Punk song, it would be almost a crime for me to leave this off the list. the song features a prominent drum & percussion beat, along with distorted vocals supplied by the men themselves. Towards the end of the song it gets a little slower, but still danceable nonetheless.
4. "High Fidelity" from Homework
Another instrumental track, which sounds like it samples Paul McCartney & Billy Joel recordings (I think), the song carries a powerful bass beat, and the song gets simpler as it goes along.
5. "Musique" B-side from Da Funk single
Musique is the perfect song for a video game, in my opinion. It was the b-side to the original "Da Funk" single, but I prefer this song over "Da Funk" for sure.
