Get Lucky - Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams



The Experience:

You have to pick. Now. You want to but you shouldn't. You don't want to, but you know you will...


My Take:
"Get lucky" is urban slang for having sex, although Pharrell Williams has stated in an interview that the song was about good company in general and not just about sex. But whichever way you want to take the song, there are two lines that underline a different experience. It's one we've all had: that nagging feeling that something is wrong. You can either ignore it and plow ahead - "We've come too far to give up who we are, so let's raise the bar and our cups to the stars." - or slam on the brakes and think. Plowing ahead is easy. But as we've all experienced, the same isn't always true of the consequences. 

Ask Yourself:
Freedom: do you just live for the moment? Do you realize that everything you do is the beginning of the rest of your life, for good or bad? Your decisions make you "who you are."


LYRICS:

(Verse 1)
Like the legend of the phoenix
All ends with beginnings
What keeps the planet spinning
The force from the beginning

(Prechorus)
We've come too far to give up who we are
So let's raise the bar and our cups to the stars

(Chorus)
She's up all night 'til the sun
I'm up all night to get some
She's up all night for good fun
I'm up all night to get lucky
We're up all night 'til the sun
We're up all night to get some
We're up all night for good fun
We're up all night to get lucky
We're up all night to get lucky (x4)

(Verse 2)
The present has no living
Your gift keeps on giving
What is this I'm feeling?
If you wanna leave I'm ready (ahh)

(Prechorus)
We've come too far to give up who we are
So let's raise the bar and our cups to the stars

(Chorus)
She's up all night 'til the sun
I'm up all night to get some
She's up all night for good fun
I'm up all night to get lucky
We're up all night 'til the sun
We're up all night to get some
We're up all night for good fun
We're up all night to get lucky
We're up all night to get lucky (x4)

(Bridge)
We're up all night to get lucky (repeated throughout)

(Prechorus)
We've come too far to give up who we are
So let's raise the bar and our cups to the stars

(Chorus)
She's up all night 'til the sun
I'm up all night to get some
She's up all night for good fun
I'm up all night to get lucky
We're up all night 'til the sun
We're up all night to get some
We're up all night for good fun
We're up all night to get lucky
We're up all night to get lucky (x8)
