The Game of Love

Album: Random Access Memories (2013)
  • Speaking with the French publication Le Nouvel Observateur, Daft Punk explained that this is a song about lost love that is being sung by an android. "We sing with vocoders," they said. "At a time when human voices are processed to become robotic, we found exciting to make a more humane as possible robotic voice. The idea of artificial intelligence approaches the man ... An emotion of something that is not human but tries to be."
