I was super young when this song came out, sad, and going through it. I had a good friend who was into Daft Punk and this was the song he put me onto. I was instantly sold on Daft Punk.
Da Funk – Despite being a little bit more intense than your average Daft Punk track but “Da Funk” still contains the Daft Punk secret sauce.
It’s not the most popular song off the album but I really find comfort and calmness in this song. This released at the end of my junior year of high school and it was just a great song to slap in the car on the way to prom.
