Random Song of the Day #13

I’ve been listening to Daft Punk‘s soundtrack to Tron: Legacy. It’s interesting. Not what I expected. I sort of expected a soundtrack full of blips and bleeps like “Around the World” made into a score, but in fact it’s actually a fairly soundtrack-y soundtrack. Not that it’s a bad thing; it’s a really good soundtrack, it’s just more soundtrack than I expected. But I see this as meaning that the daft duo took their task seriously, and I see it as a sign of maturity. I’ve yet to see the film but I’m interested in seeing how the soundtrack adds to the movie.

Regardless of that, I really like this video. I dislike how it’s only available (as far as I can tell) on MTV (damn those monopolistic bastards), but what I like most isn’t the re-interpretation of the standard light-cycle battle, but rather the old school coin-op arcade game at the beginning.
