Re: Simon’s request for music-about-music, what leaps to mind – from my own pop primal history – is this:

– admittedly as much about companionship (w/, I’d guess, a getting-it-on subtext) but it definitely makes explicit the self-celebrating quality of a lot of Daft Punk’s Discovery-era material, with their Escher-staircases of deferred-orgasmic builds & codas, a topic more obliquely approached on ‘One More Time‘. It was certainly an outstanding memory in a glittering host of chart numbers to come of age among. (I wonder, incidentally, if my swooning reaction to Panda Bear’s Person Pitch years later wasn’t precisely the eruption of this particular madeleine.)
