“Get Lucky Song” is the second single from Daft Punk’s latest album, Random Access Memories. This song was produced by the band with Nile Rodgers assisting and also peaked at number 34 in the Hot 100. It has since then gone on to be included on numerous other albums including their sophomore album, which debuted at number one. This track has also appeared on many other singles, as well as numerous soundtracks and television programs including Robot Rock, and American Dad.
Now, “Get Lucky Song” takes on a different meaning altogether. This upbeat rock song tells the tale of two lovers who run into each other during a party, and their quick, spontaneous movements end up making them head to the dance floor rather than their respective bedrooms. Because of this, the two end up running into each other again, this time in their underwear. The lucky person gets to dance with daft punk before getting back to his or her bed for a dreamy night of sleep. Daft Punk had such a huge hit with the first single off their Random Access Memories album that they decided to make an even bigger splash with this follow up.
Their follow up album called Homosexuality is more diverse in style and content. On this disc, the duo opens up with what would become the ubiquitous “Your Gold Teens.” The band adds a new filter to their sound, expanding on what made their last album so successful. Instead of writing about romance and relationships, this time around the band delves deeper into their sexuality, coming out with songs about explicit sex. The soundscaping on these songs is much funkier than on their previous albums, with heavy drums, pumping bass, and more guitar solos.
