4Ever Songs: Daft Punk “Get Lucky”

 Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” is a nod to disco from a French electronic duo known for kitschy robot costumes, machinelike vocals and computer-generated beats.  It is the first Top 10 pop hit for the musicians, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, and it has thrust their sci-fi brand of dance music upon a wider audience, even propelling their fourth studio album, “Random Access Memories” (Daft Life/Columbia) to No. 1 on the Billboard album charts.

 Nile Rodgers, the guitarist and songwriter for Chic, wrote the underlying riff and plays guitar and Pharrel Williams sings.
