This Classic Supercar Named After EDM and Disco Pioneer Giorgio Moroder Is Headed to Auction

The legendary music producer behind Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone” built a supercar with an ex-Lamborghini engineer. Celebrity musicians regularly drop bundles of cash on luxury custom rides—Drake’s Mercedes-Maybach G-Wagen and Justin Bieber’s wildly-modded Rolls-Royce Wraith are a couple outstanding examples. But hardly any hitmakers can claim to have an exotic car named after them.

I Feel Love: Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, and How They Reinvented Music (Backbeat Books), by Dave Thompson

“I Feel Love” was an outstanding track from the disco era, but was it among the most influential recordings in music history? Dave Thompson argues it’s so in I Feel Love. The Donna Summer hit brought the expat Black American singer together with expat Italian, German based producer Giorgio Moroder and became a worldwide hit that changed the sound of pop. I Feel Love serves as a rambling but informative history of electronica, whose multiple roots extend to ‘50s sci-fi movies as well as Kraftwerk and Karlheinz Stockhausen—with branches that extend across rock and R&B in artists as diverse as David Bowie, Brian Eno and Run-DMC. “I Feel Love” is the trunk of the family tree, the wakeup moment for musicians and fans to the possibilities of synth-powered music.
