I Feel Love

I learned today that Donna Summer had lost her fight against cancer and sadly passed away.  As I have mentioned previously, her song I Feel Love was hugely influential in getting me into electronic music.  As much as I loved these wonderful synthesizer sounds  and the funky rhythm, it was the vocals the brought the other parts to life.  Right from the first spellbinding "Ooh. It's So Good", to the last captivating "I Feel Love", she gave a truly alouring performance that just sat so well with the track.  Amazing really as there is no real lyrical content, but just a fantastic delivery.  It was this magic that she brought to many of her classic tracks.  I felt her love.  She will be sadly missed.
