Description

Music writer Roman Kozak described: When Blondie played in New York in May 1978, they surprised everyone with a rendition of Donna Summer’s I Feel Love. It was arguably the first time, in the middle of the great rock versus disco split, that a rock band had played a disco song. Blondie went on to record Heart of Glass, other groups recorded other danceable songs, and dance rock was born. Chris Stein noted: When we recorded it for Parallel Lines we were really into Kraftwerk, and we wanted to make it more electronic. We weren’t thinking disco as we were doing it; we thought it was more electro-European.
