Daft Punk, “Get Lucky feat. Pharrell”

This band was my introduction to house music. Road trips at the age of 11, Dad received his first and, to this day, only speeding ticket blasting “One More Time.” And as much as I enjoyed the crunchy post-Justice stompfest of Human After All, and as little as I enjoy this sort of light funk crooning in pretty much every other band’s music, there’s something very sweet and cute and inspiring about this. It’s just so basic and straightforward and… Pop. I’m really looking forward to Random Access Memories.
