Shablamidi, shablamida

Listening to my two favourite Donna Summer tunes, I Feel Love and State of Independence. I can see why Brian Eno said what he did. I first heard it in the 90s and it sounded completely up-to-date, and fitted alongside the blissed-out house music I liked. It's all about surrender to the moment.

State of Independence has the same sound but the lyrics are really different, more like a hymn to consciousness, home, commitment and God. (Donna Summer's family values led to a well-known controversial incident.)

Hmmm.

No, the Devil has the best tunes: I Feel Love is better.
