Daft Wiki

"Short Circuit" is the twelfth track from Daft Punk's second studio album, Discovery. It is probably one of the earliest tracks created for Discovery, as a beta version of the song was played before performances of "Da Funk" at some Daftendirektour appearances. It can be heard at the very beginning of the 45-minute recording of "Alive 1997", the only official release of the Daftendirektour.

Music video[]

Like all songs from the album Discovery, the music video for "Short Circuit" is a scene from the film Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem, which features no dialogue, but rather songs from Discovery throughout the whole film.

  • "The Ballad of Dorothy Parker" by Prince (not directly sampled; redone by Daft Punk)
