Those that know me fairly well know I am quite fond of the electronica genre.
Daft Punk in particular has been one of my favorite bands of late. They are a duo based in France, and Homework was released the year I was finishing up undergrad studies at Central Washington University, in 1997. The album on the whole was a little difficult for me to digest– according to Wikipedia, it was regarded as "an innovative synthesis of techno, house, acid house and electro styles"(*)– perhaps such a mix of rather differing styles explains it.
"Da Funk" and "Around the World" were two cuts I noticed and loved right away, however. I found them to be even more catchy when I saw the videos produced for them. I'd say they speak for themselves, although "Da Funk" won critical accolades:
I was looking around this morning for some good images for desktop wallpapers, and most of what I found I was unhappy with. Before anyone says "nice artwork", please, let me emphasize this: it's not mine. The background was found here and the logo is a recent version (possibly culled from an album- as I haven't bought any music in years, I'm not sure) that's been kicking around the Web for a little while. The two were layered together into a composite .PNG image using Paint.NET, an imaging software tool produced not far from here at Washington State University.
