Bronski Beat with Marc Almond – I Feel Love (UK 10″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th May 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

In 1985, Bronski Beat joined up with Marc Almond to record a version of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”. The full version was actually a medley, also incorporating snippets of Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby” and John Leyton’s “Johnny Remember Me”. It was a success, reaching #3 in the UK, equalling the chart achievement of “Smalltown Boy”. Although the original had been one of Marc Almond’s all-time favourite songs, he had never read the lyrics and thus incorrectly sang “What’ll it be, what’ll it be, you and me” instead of “Falling free, falling free, falling free”.

“I Feel Love (Medley)” peaked at #3 in Ireland and at #21 on the Belgian VRT Top 30. On the U.S. Hot Dance Singles Sales, the single reached #50.
