Donna Summer | I Feel Love
Hypnotic, Epic, Fantastic!

"I Feel Love" is a song by Donna Summer. Produced and co-written by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, It was recorded for Summer's fifth studio album, I Remember Yesterday (1977). The album concept was to have each track evoke a different musical decade; for "I Feel Love", the team aimed to create a futuristic mood, employing a Moog synthesizer.

"I Feel Love" was released May 1, 1977, just before release of the album, as the B-side to the single "Can't We Just Sit Down (And Talk It Over)", which rose to #20 on the US R&B chart. Two months later, the sides were flipped and the single was reissued. "I Feel Love" was a number one hit in Australia, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, number three in Germany and Italy, number six on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and also topped the charts in many other countries.

"I Feel Love" became popular during the disco era, influencing artists and bands such as David BowieBrian EnoThe Human League and Blondie.

The Financial Times credited it as "one of the most influential records ever made", laying the foundations for electronic dance music. 

In 2011, the Library of Congress added the song to the National Recording Registry as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically important".
