"The combination of THAT beat with THAT Voice" is what David Bowie said about this Record.

I saw an interview with Giorgio Moroder once on TV, and he was talking about the making of this track. He said the bassline with its "arpeggiator" tone (up/down) was not meant to be like that at all. He had intended the bass to be set to single bass-stabs, but after a bit of unintentional tweaking he got the arpeggiator effect and decided he prefered it, and didn't know how to change it back anyway! However it was intended, this is a disco bomb which shows no sign of going away, and will always have its place in the DJ's record box. Its around now and universally recognised as a dance floor classic almost 30 years later, and what makes it so special is that it really could have been made yesterday, it was so ahead of its time.

No one can touch "I feel love". It's clearly a prototype of the techno/Electro/house that we listen to today, and it surely was something different back then. This must have had people stopped for a moment back in '77 thinking: 'What the hell is this?' and as soon as Summer's mighty tonsils kick in on the chorus you were sold.
And the other thing about this record is that you can't give it a proper remix either. I guess Glenn Underground came closest with his effort coz as i said you can't touch it, just play it and get OR give the goosebumps going. I just never get tired of this masterpiece.

This could very well be one of the first ever "techno" or "house" records. Everything about it reeks of techno and it was fifteen years before I ever got into a thing called techno. Dating way back to my early childhood, I remember hearing this on the radio when it first came out and of course it made Z-104's "Top 104 of 1977", a popular thing that still continues to this day on the local Top-40 station every New Year's Eve. And the real kicker for me was I didn't have to go far to get it, because my mom had the 45. I had to do some searching to find the 12", however, but thanks to eBay, it wasn't too tedious a search! Anyway, what more can one say about a track that more or less pioneered an entire movement fifteen years prior to its own mass acceptance. And GOD that voice! Yeah, Donna Summer had a sultry vocal track to go along with those sequenced synthesizers. How can anyone NOT love this song? I feel love and I did even back in '77. Awesome! Totally awesome!
