Thomas Bangalter Shares Spotify Playlist
Just what do robots listen to in the privacy of their own space shuttle? Well for fans wondering the mystery has been solved after Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter shared his current taste in music with the general public via a new spotify playlist. Dominated by retro funky sounds the list includes disco classics from Diana Ross, Jackson 5 and Sister Sledge before skipping round to ‘Get Lucky’ collaborators Nile Rodgers and Pharrell Williams with the inclusion of Chic’s ‘Good Times’ and and N.E.R.D’s ‘Hypnotize U’.
With so much disco material on the list we were surprised that the undisputed queen of the genre Donna Summer didn’t make an appearance but we more surprised that Paul Williams ‘Bugsy Malone’ from the 1976 children’s musical got an outing revealing that Bangalter is partial to the odd piece of musical theatre.
Giorgio Moroder’s ‘Tears’ slides it’s groovy way onto the playlist alongside more recent releases from Jai Paul, James Blake and fellow Frenchmen Phoenix.
Perfect for lazing away a summer afternoon you can stream the full playlist below.
