    One of the main oeuvres from the band of Larry Levan and keyboardist Michael de Benedictus, “Life Is Something Special” stands as one of the real classics of the beginning of the eighties, specially because of its historical acapella, whose vocals belong to the band singer Bernard Fowler. The samples of the expressions “Feel It!” and “Work It!” were used many years later by the duo Chris Mellor & Lene of Coco Steel & Lovebomb - which released “Feel It!” and “Touch It” (both in 1991 by Instant Records / WARP). The acapella was also largely used in the sets of the House pioneers (such as Farley Jackmaster Funk in his 1987 WBMX gig at Chicago). The tune became one of the underground club anthems, played in the Paradise Garage (New York, USA) and the Hacienda (Manchester, UK).
