Last May, Donna Summer, the queen of disco, sadly died. 

Best known for her Giorgio Moroder-produced hits ‘I Feel Love’ and ‘Love to Love You’, the news of her death prompted this tribute piece by Todd Honeycutt, a YouTube user who makes recreations of hits using just his voice; in his words, “all of the sounds are human – sound produced by me only, without pitch correction or auto-tune.” Although in his cover of ‘I Feel Love’ he breaks his own rules slightly, using pitch-shifting for one of the drum sounds and a bass note that “no human could hit”, it’s still damn impressive, and was brought to our attention this week by Moroder himself, on Facebook.
