All-time classic, elegant, funky club classic and showcase for Chic masterminds Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards to work with European artists during the "Club Explosion" era when the hits just kept on coming from all corners of the world and we thought it would never end!


November 7, 2007

Sheila (Annie Chancel), the french singer and B. Devotion (three African-American singers)
worked in team with the famous Chic (Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers )who produced this
1979's disco masterpiece. It is a hauntingly beautiful song with the hallmark Chic guitar riffs
in the background. The song provides over 6 minutes of great drumming and cool grooves in
a spacelike atmosphere.

"Spacer" tells of a woman's love for a gentlemanly "star-chaser" who acts as a protector of
the galaxy. He vigorously opposes oppression and is seen as trustworthy. The song says that
this man will be leaving on a mission tonight, thereby putting his life at risk. Despite what may
happen to him, the love between the singer and this man "will last beyond time and space".

More recently sampled by Alcazar's "Crying at the Discotheque" but also by Frank o' Moiraghi
with his "Show me (spacer)". A remix of Sheila's "Spacer" came out in 1998.

This single is a must in any Disco record collection!
