DAILY FIX: DONNA SUMMERS – I FEEL LOVE

by | Aug 17, 2009 | MUSIC

I am posting a throwback today from 1977 but one that I have been listening to in my head for weeks. In this video Donna Summers is unbelievable with an angelic voice without equal. The ultimate disco fantasy with a serpentine sexuality that is untouchable but approachable at the same time.

This song was her second collaboration (“Love To Love You Baby” being the first) with Italian super producer Giorgio Moroder and one of the first songs to be totally constructed from synthesizers and drum machines – a percursor to the whole techno/electronic scene to follow.

I am throwing in “Love to Love You Baby” to bring the FIRE!! Now go find a friend, lay them down and do what you do. I have done all I can.
