@ZackTeibloom With “Blurred Lines” and “Royals” going down, Daft Punk has as clear a path to the finals as any, but Arctic Monkeys might have something to say about that. By slowing down, Arctic Monkeys proved there’s more power in control and they’re as in control as ever in their anthemic track. I have to think part of the reason we haven’t gotten as sick of Daft Punk yet is that they haven’t played a single live show. They’re now slated to play The Grammy’s, but we’ll crown a winner a month before then. Let’s see if AM can “Get Lucky.”
@ZackTeibloom Daft Punk gave us exactly what we wanted in “Get Lucky” and then held everything else that we’d think we’d want back. The rest of the album wasn’t nearly as catchy. They refused to tour. They had to choose between The Colbert Report and VMA’s and somehow chose neither. I personally love the album and think it’ll age well, but in a lot of ways, everything except “Get Lucky” left us wanting. Thankfully, the song itself delivers everything we want.
@AndyShore The memorable riff runs through the whole song, steering this bluesy, gospel-tinged, sexy track. This track is so simple, but that’s what makes the bigger parts stand out even more. The riff and simple drums explode at the hook. Sure, they may have borrowed a page from the Black Keys/Danger Mouse playbook, but they don’t need luck to advance.
