Label: Virgin
Year: 1997

Why?: A simple, yet effective #1 single for this French up

Word is that the only words from "Around the World" (you know, the "around the world" hook) are uttered 144 times on the album version of the song; we're too lost in the funky bassline to even be bothered by that, and apparently we aren't alone in that feeling. For all of the praise Daft Punk gets, their best work is never hyper-complicated: it's all just simple, infectious grooves that make you feel like a kid again.
