Daft Punk anthem Get Lucky has been named the record many music lovers want to hear as the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve.
It has also been revealed that Ylvis What Does The Fox Say is the tune most likely to see a dance floor scarper to the bar.
In a survey to assess what the nation wants to hear this New Year’s Eve, the French duo have reigned supreme. In second place, country and EDM meet with Aviici’s Wake Me Up and in third comes Robin’s Thicke’s unstoppable Blurred Lines.
On the other side of the coin, DJs across the country will want to avoid pressing play on Ylvis’ ear worm What Does The Fox Say as the nation has called it the most annoying record of the year. Following closely behind is sledge-hammer licking twerk-star Miley Cyrus, with Wrecking Ball. In third place comes pop brat Justin Bieber with his pun-tastic Beauty And The Beat. He said he was going to retire recently, but so far no such luck.
It has been a storming year for Daft Punk, returning to the charts after a five year absence. The record features vocals from Pharell Williams and the guitar prowess of Chic legend Nile Rogers, an irresistible combination, making it Top 10 in 32 countries with over 7.2m copies sold worldwide.
In a year of superb come backs, Daft Punk’s return to the limelight has been received whole-heartedly by us Brits. Get Lucky is the definitive party starter and an essential record for the biggest party night in the calendar. Ylvis topping the most annoying records list may not come as a surprise, but we didn’t expect Miley Cyrus to be second; after a headline grabbing year, may be the British public have called time on the starlet? – blinkbox music’s Rowan Adams comments
