"Human After All"

"Technologic" is the second single from Daft Punk's third studio album Human After All. It appears as track 9, following "Television Rules the Nation" and preceding "Emotion".

The song was featured in an iPod commercial. Since then, the song has been the most bought song from the album on iTunes, changing the price from $.99 to $1.29.

The song contains an electronically pitch-raised French accent-voice, possibly Thomas Bangalter's voice, chanting phrases associated with a technological pursuits.

A portion of the lyrics "touch it, bring it, pay it, watch it, turn it, leave it, start - format it" were used in Busta Rhymes' song "Touch It". Both "Touch It" and "Technologic" were used in their second live album Alive 2007. The repeated line "f*ck it" was used, combining "lock it" and "fill it".

The music video for "Technologic" is the third music video directed by Daft Punk. The first was "Fresh", and the second was "Robot Rock". This is the second Daft Punk video to feature the duo as themselves, the first was "Robot Rock". It was also the third video that they appeared at all, the first being "Burnin'", where they made a cameo appearance. The video for "Technologic" features the duo on a a pyramid-themed set, performing the song with the two guitars that appear on the single cover. The lyrics (except for "technologic") appear to flash on a red screen. Standing in front of the screen is a black and white robot with teeth/braces that appears to chant the lyrics. Later on, Daft Punk and the robot appear to be watching the video they made.

At over three million views, this is the most viewed Human After All music video on their YouTube channel.

This is the second Daft Punk song with a Daft Hands version on YouTube. The first was "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" from Discovery.
