James Murphy is the father that everyone wishes they had when they’re in their 20s. He was there, he understands. And because of that he’ll make you feel that you’re making mistakes he made, you’re having fun that he had, and you’re doing all the right things. “Drunk Girls” follows the same model, much like “North American Scum” and “Daft Punk is Playing at My House.” Murphy bemuses throughout the song about drunk girls and drunk boys and their various behaviors not unlike Jane Goodall. The song races along and seems to end just as quickly as it begins, preferring to stick to simplicity as Murphy keeps the song a club-ready jam. “Just ’cause I’m shallow doesn’t mean that I’m heartless. Just ’cause I’m heartless doesn’t mean that I’m mean.” Murphy knows too well that sometimes kids just want to have fun and not worry about the consequences. He’s the anti-parent in that way, encouraging kids to only worry about the present and not dwell too much about, well, about anything really.
