On Monday the #EDM world was shocked by the sad yet incredibly epic announcement that the French Grammy-winning duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo said goodbye. With an eight-minute video titled Epilogue with an excerpt from their 2006 film, Electroma, the duo announced the end of #DaftPunk. As such, I present you with my top 10 favorite DaftPunk songs. Enjoy!
1 | One More Time (2007)
At #1, it would be ridiculous to not have “One More Time” as it was essentially the greatest party anthem of all time. Whether at a club, birthday party, wedding, New Year’s gathering, Christmas party – this song is definitely in every DJ’s repertoire.
2 | Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (2001)
Sound familiar? Yep, Kanye West sampled this song in his hit “Stronger” released in 2007.
3 | Around the World (1997)
Much like #1, this song too became a party anthem in the late 90s that was most certain to be heard in any venue that you just couldn’t resist not tapping your feet or bobbing your head to the awesome bass beat throughout the track.
4 | Da Funk (1995)
I have this at #4 because the first three were their biggest commercial hits you could say, but this was actually the first track I ever heard by DaftPunk that made me a fan – not to mention the bizarrely interesting video. So I leave you here but enjoy the remaining six tracks and let me know what you think!
