In the wake of Daft Punk’s success, the turn of the millennium brought French house to the masses with Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You” and this, with both dominating European singles charts and dance floors. The sumptuous bass groove and catchy guitar riff were taken from Chic’s 1982 single “Soup For One”, leading one’s conclusion that if you’re lifting from Chic you’ve got a good chance of a hit. I’m being glib; it’s a great song in its own right.
