This acid house infused dancefloor filler finds James Murphy detecting existential crisis in the current radio hits beaming out on the airwaves.

"When I take a taxi in New York is about the only time that I hear the radio.

If you only have one night, should you sleep with this creepy guy who wants to get you loaded? If I only had one night, there's a lot of s--t that I would like to get done that is not being in in some giant superclub drinking champagne with a sparkle in it. It seems like a really sad use of the awareness of your mortality. Like, 'Let's do the most inane, mundane s--t that you should only do if you would definitely not dying tonight."
