Daft Punk’s “Contact”: Watch The Video For The Song It Samples, The Sherbs’ “We Ride Tonight”

05892426c25a582916aa7487b87ee2de Daft Punk’s “Contact”: Watch The Video For The Song It Samples, The Sherbs’ “We Ride Tonight”

Okay, despite their ambitions to circumvent sampling and aim for a flawlessly beautiful analog listening experience with Random Access Memories, you may have read by now that Daft Punk did lift from another song — Aussie band The Sherbs‘ 1982 synth-rock jam “We Ride Tonight” — for spacy album-closer “Contact.” And one glance at the Sherbs’ original video proves to be somewhat of an eye-opening experience with regards to French duo Daft Punk and just one of the many corners, we’re sure, they’ve drawn inspiration from over the years.

For instance, in the first 40 seconds alone, we see a black-clad biker slip on a motorcycle helmet. We see dark, cloaked figures standing in a road. There’s a creepy guy in makeup banging out dramatic chords, the same ones you hear after Eugene Cernan‘s dialog in “Contact.” But all the while, you never catch any of these character’s faces full-on.

Daft Punk — “Contact”

Can you picture the day young, impressionable, pre-tween Thomas Bangalter or Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (or both) caught this video on MTV thirtysomething years ago?
