Chapter 136: Computer Love

Electronic disco and synth pop

One of the most influential songs in music history, Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder’s “I Feel Love” is almost single-handedly responsible for electronic dance music. It’s technically disco, but icy and inhuman; you can feel your blood vessels turn to circuit wire as you dance. The songs that followed in “I Feel Love”’s wake are equally cool, in every sense of the word. But they sit in tension with pockets of magmatic warmth, in the gaze of “Temptation,” the angsty pulse of “Walking On Thin Ice,” and the android ache of “Computer Love.”
