I Feel Love was recorded for Donna’s fifth studio album, I Remember Yesterday (1977). The album concept was to have each track evoke a different musical decade; for I Feel Love, the team aimed to create a futuristic mood, employing a Moog synthesizer.
I Feel Love became popular during the disco era, influencing acts such as David Bowie, Brian Eno, the Human League and Blondie. The Financial Times credited it as “one of the most influential records ever made”, laying the foundations for electronic dance music.
According to David Bowie, who was then recording his Berlin Trilogy, his collaborator Brian Eno “came running in” and told him he had heard “the sound of the future”. According to Bowie, Eno predicted that I Feel Love would change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years, which “was more or less right”.
Bronski Beat included a medley of I Feel Love with Johnny Remember Me on their gay-themed album The Age of Consent in 1984.
