Daft Punk Play It Safe in Their New "Lose Yourself to Dance" Video

by Gary Pini

This track, "Lose Yourself To Dance," is the second single from Daft Punk's latest album, Random Access Memories, and again it features Pharrell and Nile Rodgers, and it's got a very similar vibe to "Get Lucky."  That's not necessarily a negative, but the slower tempo almost makes it seem a little too laid-back for a dance party and nothing really happens in the video -- actually the Soul Train clips in the version below have more flair. The boys have gone with a "don't-mess-with-a-good-thing" formula, instead of trying something a little more adventurous.  Factoid: There once was a nightclub here in New York City called The Saint that had a giant, domed dance floor like this.
