6/100 Video - "Around the World" - Daft Punk (1997)

I sometimes struggle with remembering lyrics, even to my favourite songs.

But I always remember the melody, the rhythm and the beat.

I guess you could say I prefer action over words.

In this video, it's all about movement representing the individual parts of the music.

The video "Around the World" by Daft Punk takes creativity to another dimension.

The choreography of each group of dancers matches a different instrument in the mix. 

Bass Guitar - Tall Grey Men

Drums - Mummies

Synth - Swimsuit Girls

Second Guitar - Skeletons

Vocals - Robots

And the characters walking around in circles are represented by parts of the music not being played.

Cinematic genius.

2013 - "Get Lucky" - Daft Punk

Pharrell Williams: I'm loving' this retro disco vibe, but this doesn't sound at all like Daft Punk. 
Breakdown: Hold my quarantini.

Maybe not quite "September" groovy, but not bad for 2013.

A fine throwback, instantly catchy and thoroughly funky. 

Other favourites from 2013: 

"The Messenger" – Johnny Marr 

"Reflektor" - Arcade Fire

"Summer Breeze" – Pepper the Crow

"Cool Kids" - Echosmith
