Daft Punk - Phœnix (Official Audio)

The song starts with a simple one note drum beat which gets more complex, with a cymbal and another drum beat that builds up to the main hook of the song. The main hook then has a bassline that comes in a minute after it starts. The individual parts of the songs are heavily looped. When asked if the track was a gospel-like song, Bangalter stated:

This is an important track, but not anymore important than any of the other tracks. When I was speaking with some people about the promotion of the album, they said they had a problem promoting it because DJs were not focusing on one track, but liking all the tracks. It's true that there's not one track that is more important than the other on the album.[1]

The hook uses the sample Elton John & Kiki Dee "Don't Go Breaking My Heart"

The beats from the track can be hear during the Alive 2007 concert, during "Aerodynamic Beats/Gabrielle, Forget About the World"[2]
