Carnivalism Fridays No.105 – Donna Summer – If it Hurts Just a Little

It has to be said Stock Aken & Waterman really did knock the shine off this beauty in my opinion. She has such a cache of Disco classics some that fell victim of the genre’s own commercial success into the 80’s, others that will remain classics now, and forevermore.

The obvious choice would be I feel love in its various guises, it’s significance to the music industry was far and wide reaching as David Bowie recalls;

“One day in Berlin … Eno came running in and said, ‘I have heard the sound of the future.’ … he puts on ‘I Feel Love’, by Donna Summer … He said, ‘This is it, look no further. This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years.’ Which was more or less right.”

Check out Master’s At Work promo remix from 1995 that leaves her vocal abandoned amongst the slightest of piano, essentially highlighting what an incredible vocal Donna really had.
