Unbelievable! Giorgio Moroder Breaks The Silence About Donna Summer

Unbelievable! Giorgio Moroder Breaks The Silence About Donna Summer
Female voices have long defined Giorgio Moroder’s chart career, none more so than the late great Donna Summer. Giorgio, along with writing partner Pete Bollette, helmed almost all of Donna’s best-loved hits over a prolific six year period, and he’s yet to find a more versatile singer.

“I knew Donna so well, and I could give her whatever I wanted and it would always sound great. I don’t know of an artist right now who would be able to do songs like MacArthur Park. Today the thought process for my new music is different, a lot of the acts want to write the melodies themselves. It’s a different era.”

“Bad Girls”, “Hot Stuff”, “Last Dance” are just a few of the iconic dancefloor fillers Giorgio and Donna recorded together, but which is his favourite?

“Love To Love You Baby” is a great song, it’s my claim to fame – my first big hit. It was my first chance to get into the business. I had some hits before but not a worldwide No. 1, so it’s certainly my favourite. But the ‘Bad Girls’ album is probably the best collection of songs we made, it had so many things and Donna wrote a lot of the songs herself.”

 

For clubbers it was “I Feel Love” with its synthesised pulse which broke new ground. “The secret to that track is in the mechanical futuristic rhythm,” nods Moroder. “Then the hook had to be great… and then you have a voice like Donna’s. But even then, it comes down to the timing and technology, and the whole disco movement was important, so with that one we were lucky. Brian Eno told David Bowie he heard the sound of the future with “I Feel Love”. I would have never thought I could do something like this.”

Moroder Memories

A professional highlight for Giorgio was breathing fresh electronic life into the band Sparks. At a career crossroads in 1978, the Mael brothers happened to tell a German journalist how much they loved Donna’s Summer’s “I Feel Love”. The writer was a good friend of Giorgio’s, and the message got through…

“These guys were great. They called me in LA and said they wanted to stop using so many guitars and do something with synthesisers.” Moroder remembers.

“So we rented a downtown studio. It didn’t look anything like a studio, but it had a huge collection of Moogs and modules plus a guy called Dan Wyman, the guy who gave us the sound. I played a few synthesisers, and Ron loved it – it was the most fun I remember having during that period. No. 1 In Heaven – I like to think I started the synthesiser career for them.”

I truly believe in the devastating effects of global warming as does Disco pioneer Cerrone. Interestingly, this month he dropped a music video for his new single “The Impact”. Sure enough, this clip contains a message raising awareness through atmospheric synths sounds + post-apocalyptic scenes. Above all, there’s a kind of magic in his melodies as it produces a whole bunch of tension into your ears, which resonates with the concept of his track.

On the other hand, it features some powerful lines of a speech by Jane Goodall, the famous British anthropologist who is now working for the preservation of the environment with her foundation. In my opinion, you don’t have to be a scientist in order to save the planet. Actually, everyone must assume the mission of protecting our planet to have no regrets in the future.

New Video Alert: Peggy Gou - Starry Night
Without a doubt, Peggy Gou is the most popular female DJ & Producer from South Korea. The good news here lies in the fact that she released the music video for her #1 hit “Starry Night”. The dreamy visuals shine a light on the enigmatic Asian culture.  Prepare yourself to see some peculiar scenes, which range from martial arts to wonderful landscapes. In addition, there’s a touch of fantasy that makes it visually irresistible for all of us. Certainly, Disco music is her forte and I hope she pursues this style in the future. Directed by Jonas Lindstroem, I would dare to say “Starry Night” is accompanied by one of the best videos of 2019.

Shura
stars a lesbian version of the Pope in her recent video for “Religion (U Can Lay Your Hands On Me)”. Definitely, she knows how to create controversy. In the clip, you will see two sinful nuns making out for the first time. So, if you wonder how nuns deal with sexual urges, these funny visuals might give you a clue, LOL. Moreover, the song itself is a catchy Disco gem. It sounds so sexy that I swear I’m listening to the whole track on repeat. Undoubtedly, Shura is a new artist to watch in 2019.

Madonna
has written her deepest song ever! “God Control” forms part of her 14th studio album, ‘Madame X’. I would dare to say it’s innovating as this is the first time I hear a political song under the Disco genre. In addition, you can expect a heartbreaking music video about gun violence. Trust me, if you are a highly emotional person like myself, this clip will make you cry.

Somehow, visuals remind me of the tragic shooting massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida (2016). This horrible incident must not happen again, and I really hope we can become aware that violence won’t solve anything. The Queen Of Pop has stated that she would like to see changes in the American legislation. Indeed, sooner or later we have to wake up!
