SONG FOR TODAY: Senor Coconut - Around The World

THIS has been playing for the last few minutes on BBC 6Music, as Sex Pistol Steve Jones sits in for Marc Riley this week. The original was of course by the excellent Daft Punk, and was a song that I played to death when it came out in the mid-to-late 90's, but here is a superb version by Senor Coconut... 'Around the World' is a song by the French electronic music duo Daft Punk. It appeared on the duo's debut album, Homework and was released as a single the same year. It subsequently became a major club hit around the world and arrived at #1 in dance charts. The song is particularly known for the repeated phrasing of its title. It is also known for its music video, which was directed by Michel Gondry and choreographed by Blanca Li. In October 2011, NME placed it at number 21 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years".
