21/11/13 – Donna Summer – I Feel Love – 1977


Electronic music goes disco and changes the world. Recorded at Musicland Studios in Munich by Italian producer Giorgio Moroder and his partner Pete Bellotte, David Bowie is quoted below on Eno’s comments on hearing this track:

“One day in Berlin … Eno came running in and said, “I have heard the sound of the future.” … he puts on “I Feel Love,” by Donna Summer … He said, “This is it, look no further. This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years.” Which was more or less right.”

The song written by Summer, Moroder and Bellote went to number one on the British charts and number 6 in the US on release, reaching either number one or at least the top ten across the world.
