This one, don’t listen to it:
I think I’m finally immune to this tune but only after ten days of having it set to repeat forever on my iPod Touch (5th Gen.)* and only after blowing out the 6.5″ Marc Levinson subwoofer (or driver? Or is it another speaker? IDK) in my Toyota Bland Cruiser.
And my ears still feel a little weird, oh well.
But after hearing the first five seconds for the first time, I was thinking, “Is this the entire song, just repeated over and over?” And it was! Pretty much, anyway.
And the reviews are in:
“So we’ve all had well over 24 hours with the Important (capital I) new Daft Punk record, Random Access Memories. The album is one that is uncompromising in vision and full of strange left turns and maybe some moments of genuine transcendence. “Doin’ It Right” with Panda Bear is probably one of those moments. Much like “Get Lucky,” with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, “Doin’ It Right” is a perfect example of the marriage of style and vision that Daft Punk has been trying to convey with their overwrought web series The Collaborators. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that all they had to do was play some music.”
“Pretty sure Daft Punk don’t give a fuck what people wanted to hear them make. They made the music – they – wanted to make. That’s Daft Punk all over, and they’re true musical innovators because of that.”
“…the 70’s are back…well then. Who wants to go down to the Discotheque?”
“This particular song is very addictive.”
“This is great for listening while stoned! 2:27 is completely awesome.”
“Thanks Daft Punk for bringing us back to the 70’s and to those amazing beats, I really love this album!!”
“I love daft punk and I love panda bear. Perfect combination!”
“Using samples doesn’t mean you’re not an innovator. They write and construct the songs, the samples are just a small part. Besides, this album has fewer samples than anything they’ve done.”
ALL HAIL DAFT PUNK.
If you lose your way tonight/
That’s how you know the magic’s right
*Yes, an iPod Touch. It cost almost as much as an iPad Mini but I don’t want an iPad Mini. Now if Microsoft had kept up with the Zune HD the past four years, iPods Touch would be a lot cheaper I’m sure. But if I lost it I would buy another. It’s my Walkman. It’s my Samsung Galaxy Note II’s lil buddy.
