    General CommentI'm really sad about this song. I love Animal Collective, Panda Bear, and Daft Punk. BUT HOW IS THIS SO MELLOW WITH A SLOW TEMPO!?!? Animal Collective is know for crazy change ups and chaotic rhythms. I love a lot of songs from this new album, but this is the last thing I expected from this collaboration. =(

    My InterpretationI think this song is the message of the song is the following:
    A good song is a song that people will dance to and will feel for. When you feel you are in 'the zone' making a good song, you have to keep at it all throughout the night. Remember, this song is about making people dance! (and about making a song about making people dance :P )

    When I hear this song I picture a musician staying up all night making a song/track for people to dance to.

    "If you do it right
    Let it go all night
    Shadows on you break
    Out into the light"
    Interpretation: If you are doing the right things to make the right song, keep going throughout the night as the shadows on you turn into light.

    "If you lose your way tonight
    That's how you know the magic's right"
    Interpretation: There is a lyric in the song 'Beyond' (which is about making that 'perfect' original song) that goes "To find our way we lose control". So, the opposite would be, if we lose our way we gain control. Control over making a good, original song.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song off of their Random Access Memories album!
    It's meaning seems close to that of "Lose Yourself to Dance."
    However, "Doin' It Right" seems to be more collective which I could imagine being a crowd in the club or at a house party. On the other hand, "Lose Yourself to Dance" seems more like a hardcore one-person party.
