Daft Punk - Get Lucky

44 posts in this topic

Nobody using samples can be classed as genius nor should they be hailed as the second coming.

Very clever and very creative perhaps but that's not the same thing.

And for the record, although not a fan, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards were talented songwriters and producers.

I think Get Lucky is a work of genius - am I allowed to say this, given that the track isn't based on a sample..?

Cheers. ;)

 

I'm really gonna test you now...

 

I think the sample of The JB's 'The Grunt' in Rebel Without A Pause is a work of pure genius... am I in the clear to do this..?

I was thinking that. I'm guessing the song by Amerie rather than the song One Direction released recently with that name. Neither are in the top 100 pop songs of the past 10 years I'd say. The Amerie one is good, not as "legendary" as Crazy in Love has become in a similar sort of time though. 

 

I do like Get Lucky, although my personal favourite pop song this year is Justin Timberlake's Mirrors. Not a floorfiller but there's just something about it.

 

1Thing shades Crazy in Love for me.  It's a tougher go-go track, and the drum sample is quite incredible.

Oh my god.  It's true.  You really don't have a sense of humour.

 

Re-read the exchange FFS.

I actually like stumbling across a back reference when it comes to samples. Especially when it's songs I grew up with sampling songs from before my time. An obvious starting point would be Will Smith. Fascinating stuff sometimes. A lot seems to be funk/soul/disco when it comes to 90's R&B/hip-hop.

 

(*And yes, please let the TRL music bores refrain from the "R&B" argument!!) :P

Sister Sledge's Il Macquillage Lady...?

It isn't that but thanks for offering, it's "the other half" of the song if you like.

 

1:03 in...

But it was simply played on a piano where I heard it used on a tv show, wracked my brains just to get it to Daft Punk!

I agree. Samples are a fantastic way (certainly pre-internet) of introducing people to music they've never heard before.  You mention Will Simth - 'A Touch of Jazz' is an incredible track that brilliantly referenced Marvin Gaye's T Plays It Cool.  A friend of mine recently introduced the track to Plan B - he couldn't believe it.

A bit of wiki'ing.

The guitar break isn't a sample as such but an impossible to play 'homage' to baroque violin music.

The piano version you'll have heard was by Myleene Klass and was this piece of music transcribed for piano.

Plan B has a history of not knowing the past. He wore a Skrewdriver T-shirt last year.

Quite similar. Just incase anyone was wondering it was here where I heard it. 1:06 in...
