Donna Summer’s untimely death has sparked a renewed interest in her songs. The powerful voice and rich production of Summer’s recordings served as soundtracks for a time that preceded the deadly realities of AIDS and the backlash of conservatism ushered in by the Reagan era. The Giorgio Moroder-produced I Feel Love instantly became a club staple and served as an anthem of an increasingly visible gay subculture. The song was from a 1977 concept album called “I Remember Yesterday” and represented what the future of music could sound like, and actually still sounds surprisingly fresh to this date.
