Track of the Week: Days Go By by Dirty Vegas

This week’s track is Days Go By by Dirty Vegas, off of their self-titled eponymous debut. An older track, from 2002, this album and this track are a great example of turn of the century (fun to say that!) house. Pulsing bass line, plus very low key lyrics that are layered with what sounds like a little auto-tune make this a fun track. The music video is also worth a watch.

Turn of the century context: this song won the Grammy for best dance recording in 2003. To give a sense of the sounds of house and dance at the time, other nominees where Superstylin by Groove Armada and Gotta Get Thru This by Daniel Bedingfield. The Groove Armada track is in the same general genre as Days Go By, but Gotta Get Thru This has all the sounds of a late 90s dance track.
