Donna Summer is often touted as the Queen of Disco. Although she was known for hits like “Last Dance,” “She Works Hard for the Money,” and “Hot Stuff” her true musical passions lied in the early stages of EDM (Electronic Dance Music). Unfortunately, she was pigeon-holed by her fans and record execs to stay on the less experimental side of disco against her will. With the resurgence of disco influenced beats back in mainstream music by the likes of Solange, Moullinex, and most notably Daft Punk, it’s important to see the roots of this movement. Check out this video to see the connection between Donna Summer and Daft Punk’s new album, Random Access Memories.
“I Feel Love” is THE Donna Summer song. It takes one viewing of her performance below to see just how engrossed she is in the music. That or the outrageous amount of drugs she might have consumed that day.
Pro Tip: This blogger has been playing “I Feel Love” in the mornings before heading out the door using Infinite Jukebox; for a never ending disco experience.
