Giorgio Moroder’s Lost Disco Battlestar Galactica Soundtrack Album

giorgio-moroder-battlestar-galactica

Giorgio Moroder has a special place in the history of electronic music, because of his genre-inspiring classic track I Feel Love, with Donna Summer and Pete Bellotte.

When Brian Eno first heard I Feel Love, he told David Bowie “This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years,” which it did. The track has been covered by dozens of artists and imitated, either directly or indirectly, by thousands.

Moroder’s version of the original Battlestar Galactica soundtrack, on the other hand, has been lost to obscurity.

Until now:

Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

  1. This goes up there with the disco rendition of "Phantasm" as my melodic faves. Notice what's missing from SO much modern house music: lots of changes supported by vibrant instrumentation (as opposed to repetitive, generic riffs).[youtube xihGJveutQ8

    Hey, was anyone else here into Hooked On Classics? There's another wonderfully bouncy series.

  8. Sounds great! This is the first time I've heard the disco version of the Phantasm theme and I consider myself quite a fan of this stuff. I'm old enough to remember the movie from when it was new. Nothing else like it at the time.
