One More Time Tickets
Having grown up in the pop ruling era of the 70s and 80s, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have incorporated elements and influences of that time and combined them with a modern improvisational touch to present a song that has become a worldwide dance phenomenon. The track blurs the line between old disco, modern electro and techno music.
One of the most distinctive and prominent features of the song are the vocals by Romanthony, the lyrics written by the singer himself. He was selected by the band for his funky voice appeal which they considered very apt for the number. His recording was then heavily processed and auto tuned. For this, the duo has followed the example of Bangalter’s ‘Music sounds better with you’. They have blended retro bass thump with sampled horns along with the pitch-variation and improvisation techniques and applied it to the unique vocals of Romanthony. However, the song retains its authentic charm and appeal. Whereas ‘Music sounds better than you’ was an experimentally strong and solid number, ‘one more time’ can be described as a light-hearted fun number. Romanthony’s number ‘Celebrate and dance so free!’ sums their style.
The theme of ‘One more time’ is also about celebration. The song sets the perfect dancing mood owing to its catchy beats. It keeps the listeners on their toes dancing with complete abandonment and urges them to dance on like in a never ending party.
After creating a momentum within the initial seconds of the song, Romanthony’s voice gives an impression of losing breath while trying to keep pace with the fast beats. This effect is created through auto toning of voice. Suddenly the music stops and Romanthony is left on his own with minimal keyboard sounds. As he sings ‘One more time’ as if pleading for the music to gain momentum again, the listeners or viewers plead with him for another round of the thrilling musical beats by Daft Punk. After a long intimate low key pause, with the singer’s jubilant shout of ‘One more time’, the beats return with a bang as the party is saved.
The famous dance number has also been featured in a film called ‘Interstella 555’. It also topped the UK music charts at number two in 2001. The single stood on number sixty one on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition to this, it featured in PlayStation 3’s SingStar and Wii video game. At present ‘One more time’s is the all time number one single in its home country, France.
Though it was originally released more than a decade ago, its appeal has not worn out with the passage of years. As long as the music compels the audiences to succumb to their dancing inhibitions and resistances while craving for one more time of the song, it will live on. So get your One more time tickets and be ready for a non-stop celebration night which will keep you on your toes all the while.
