Giorgio by Moroder
Daft Punk Lyrics


When I was fifteen, sixteen
When I started really to play guitar
I definitely wanted to become a musician
It was almost impossible because, it was
The dream was so big
That I didn't see any chance
Because I was living in a little town, was studying
And when I finally broke away from school
And became a musician
I thought "well, now I may have a little bit of a chance"
Because all I really wanted to do is music
And not only play music, but compose music

At that time, in Germany, in '69, '70
They had already discotheques
So I would take my car, would go to a discotheque
Sing maybe thirty minutes
I think I had about seven, eight songs
I would partially sleep in the car
Because I didn't want to drive home
And that helped me for about
Almost two years to survive
In the beginning
I wanted to do an album with the sounds of the fifties
The sounds of the sixties, of the seventies
And then have a sound of the future
And I thought "Wait a second
I know the synthesizer, why don't I use the synthesizer
Which is the sound of the future"
And I didn't have any idea what to do but I knew I needed a click
So we put a click on the 24-track
Which then was synced to the Moog modular
I knew that could be a sound of the future
But I didn't realize how much the impact would be

My name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me Giorgio

Once you free your mind about a concept of
Harmony and of music being correct
You can do whatever you want
So nobody told me what to do
And there was no preconception of what to do

When I was fifteen, sixteen, when I really started to play the guitar
I definately wanted to become a musician
It was almost impossible because the dream was so big
I didn't see any chance
Because I was living in a little town, I was studying
And when I finally broke away from school
And became a musician, I thought
Well, I may have a bit of a chance
Because all I every wanted to do is music
But not only play music, but compose music

At that time, in Germany, in 1969-70
They already had discotheques
So I would take my car and go to a discotheque
And sing maybe 30 minutes
I think I had about 7-8 songs
I would partially sleep in the car
Because I didn't want to drive home
And that help me for about almost 2 years to survive
In the beginning, I wanted to do a album
With the sound of the 50s, the sound of the 60s, of the 70s
And then have a sound of the future
And I said: Wait a second
I know the synthesizer, why don't I use the synthesizer
Which is the sound of the future?
And I didn't have any idea what to do
But I knew I needed a click so we put a click on the 24 track
Which was then synch to the Moog modular
I knew that it could be a sound of the future
But I didn't realise how much impact it would be

My name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me Giorgio

Once you free your mind
About a concept of harmony and music being correct
You can do whatever you want
So nobody told me what to do
And there was no preconception of what to do

In an interview Giorgio said that when he went to the recording studio they simply asked him to tell his story and that he did not know how they were going to use it.

He was in front of three microphones and asked the engineer why these three microphones and the engineer told him:

"One is from the 1940s-50s and they will use it to record your story from when you lived in Italy, another is from the 1960s-70s for when you tell your life in the 1970s, and a new microphone for when you speak about the future."

Giorgio replied: "That's great, but who would ever know the difference?"

Engineer: "Nobody."

Giorgio: "Then why are you doing it if no one will notice the difference?"

Engineer: "They, the two boys, can hear the difference."

In fact, if you pay attention you can hear the change in fidelity when he starts talking about the future. The recording is slowly blurred between different microphones in the middle of his sentences.

"I wanted to make an album with the sounds of the 1950s, the sounds of the 1960s...." - very old microphone
"... from the 1970s, and then have...". - 60s/70s microphone
"... a sound of the future." - New microphone, you can really hear the high range opening up.

Absolutely amazing. I love Giorgio, I love Daft Punk, i love this song and RAM is a contemporary masterpice.
