Here is one of the most influential singles of the last 40 years... up there with “Big Yellow Taxi” and “Flashlight” and “Rapper’s Delight.”
This Donna Summer track – produced by Giorgio Moroder (pictured) – came out in 1977... long before the words “house” or “electronica” had any musical meaning.
I didn’t know until yesterday that “I Feel Love” was a bigger hit in England than in the United States.
None other than Brian Eno said these words to none other than David Bowie: “I have heard the sound of the future. ... This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next 15 years.” (Eno underestimated.)
