French Disko

Is very popular...



















And there were about 2,271 others. Must be the most popular song EVER!

Ha wow. I saw the Raveonettes once, but only because they were on the same bill as Melody's Echo Chamber.

Re: French Disko

It is baffling for me why French Disko gets so much credit. It is such a dull and generic sounding song.

It's probably their biggest crossover "hit". Stereolab, whether rightly or wrongly, would've sold more records if they'd kept churning out more of this type of sound.

Hard to believe that D&L was the last straw for a lot of 'Lab fans :(

No wonder I don't care for it!


I am guessing that 'Parsec' is the Lab song that has been the most heard by the public. That campaign was massive.

You're right, I remember lots of interest and buzz around ETK and D+L times and then when Cobra came out people just moved on.
