Feeling Love

Here's a feature I wrote for Pitchfork on "I Feel Love" - which turns 40 in a few days time - and on the miraculous, world-changing synergy that formed between Donna Summer + Giorgio Moroder + Pete Bellotte, along with the rest of the Munich Musicland squad.

I got to meet Moroder and Bellotte, spoke with drummer man Keith Forsey and with the original disco critic Vince Aletti, and communed cosmically with Summer, who has - alas - departed for another plane.

and finally, on this one, note the movie-style credits, delivered via vocoder, that name-check everybody involved in the production - right down to "tea and coffee" by Laurie Kanner, GM's secretary
