The death of Donna Summer last week was something that was sad in the abstract; a “Oh, I never paid so much attention to her, but she’s dead and that’s a shame for her friends and family” kind of thing, but nothing beyond that, really. And then, the other day, I was in a store and “I Feel Love” was playing and… It sounded like music from now. It sounded contemporary, or – no, it sounded like something a few months from now, if that makes sense. Maybe it’s the snake-eating-its-own-tail nature of pop’s retro sound, but the thirty-plus year disco hit genuinely sounds more modern than half of the pop music that’s been created in the last couple of years.
It’s so good, it’s so good, it’s so good, indeed.
