Today’s installmenet of #coverversion Friday is easily the most fun track I’ve uncovered yet. Below you’ll find a picture of a Japanse CD that shows a German orchestra doing a cover of a song by a French electro brand who used a sample from an American composer to create one of the best songs of the last 15 years. I would love to figure out how to drop this Senor Coconut Daft Punk cover version in a live set, just to see people’s faces.
Senor Coconut And His Orchestra – Around The World
Daft Punk – Around The World
Jerry Goldsmith – The Rec Room
A few years back I bought the Discovered album – it is a collection tracks that Daft Punk has sampled over the years. Some of the tracks are very distinct and easy to recognize, like Cola Bottle Baby from Edwin Birdsong.
This track, however is one that really shows the Daft Punk sampling chops. I have no idea how they Gladwelled the sample from the Rec Room.
