Lost but not least! Giorgio – Oh L’Amour (Oasis/Casablanca Records)
“Oh L’Amour…” A feeling synonymous with so many emotions since the world is what it is…
A three-time Oscar-winning and three-time Grammy Award-winning record producer, songwriter and performer, Giorgio Moroder is a pivotal figure in the quintessence of Disco and Electronic Dance Music.
He would get Donna Summer to international stardom with the one of a kind ‘Love To Love You Baby’. But also produce artists such as Sparks (‘Tryouts For The Human Race’) and Janis Ian (‘Fly Too High’). Not to mention Roberta Kelly and many more.
Remembered as well for soundtracks (‘Midnight Express’, ‘Top Gun’), he also happened to release albums under his own name. Although he admitted singing wasn’t his thing. This didn’t get him though from partly expressing humself on the bumpin’ ‘Oh ‘L’Amour’. One of the highlights of his 1976 ‘Knight In White Satin’ album. This with his interpolation of the Moody Blues‘ classic ‘Nights In White Satin’. But also extra goodies such as ‘I Wanna Funk With You Tonite’ and ‘Sooner Or Later’. All in all completing the so to say freaky episode in the career of Moroder that found its peak along with Donna Summer on the memorable ‘Love To Love You Baby’.
‘Oh ‘L’Amour’ saw the light as the flipside of the suggestive ‘I Wanna Funk With You Tonite’ depending on countries. Although the best is to get the album version at the end.
