"I Feel Love" is a song by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte with lyrics by Donna Summer which appeared on Summer's 1977 album I Remember Yesterday. The song became popular in High Energy discos.

In 2006 Slant Magazine ranked the song first in its list of '100 Greatest Dance Songs'. It reached number one in the United Kingdom, and made the top-ten in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Before "I Feel Love", most disco recordings had been backed by acoustic orchestras although all-electronic music had been produced for decades. Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte's innovative production of this disco-style song, recorded with an entirely synthesized backing track, utilizing a Moog synthesizer, spawned imitators in the disco genre, and was influential in the development of new wave synthpop and later techno. Moroder went to work on the song with Bellotte in his Musicland Studios in Munich. "We wanted to conclude with a futuristic song," he said, "and I decided that it had to be done with a synthesizer."

Unusually for a disco track of that era, Moroder composed the backing track and bass line before the melody. He introduced a degree of variety by altering the song's key at regular intervals and layering in Summer's repetitive and synthesized vocals.

The song was recorded on a 16 track tape recorder, with a click track to sync together the various parts played on a sequencer.

According to David Bowie, then in the middle of recording of his Berlin Trilogy with Brian Eno, its impact on the genre's direction was recognized early on; "One day in Berlin ... Eno came running in and said, "I have heard the sound of the future." ... he puts on "I Feel Love," by Donna Summer ... He said, "This is it, look no further. This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years." Which was more or less right.""
