"Giorgio by Moroder" as written by and Thomas Bangalter Giorgio Moroder....
When I was fifteen, sixteen when I started really to play the guitar
I definitely wanted to become a musician
It was almost impossible because the dream was so big
I didn't see any chance because I was living in a little town, I was studying
And when I finally broke away from school and became I musician
I thought "well I may have a bit of a chance"
Because all I every wanted to do is music but not only play music
But compose music

At that time, in Germany, in 1969-70, they already had discotheques
So I would take my car and go to a discotheque and sing maybe 30 minutes
I think I had about 7-8 songs. I would partially sleep in the car
Because I didn't want to drive home and that help me for about almost 2 years to survive
In the beginning, I wanted to do a album with the sound of the 50s,
The sound of the 60s, of the 70s and then have a sound of the future
And I said: "Wait a second
I know the synthesizer, why don't I use the synthesizer
Which is the sound of the future"
And I didn't have any idea what to do but I knew I needed a click
So we put a click on the 24 track which was then synch to the moog modular
I knew that it could be a sound of the future
But I didn't realize how much impact it would be

My name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me Giorgio

You want to free your mind about a concept of harmony and of music being correct,
You can do whatever you want
So nobody told me what to do, and there was no preconception of what to do

    General CommentThe song that Giorgio is referring to when he talks about the sound of the future is Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love' from 1977.

    General CommentI love how this duo whose style has paved the way for much of the dance music of the past decade (and some change) show us who inspire them and set many wheels in motion.
    The way the music follows the key points of Giorgio's story is great, from his humble beginnings as a young musician against the backdrop of parking lot chatter outside of the disco all the way to the end as the track brings us through his history up to present day.

    After his closing words, the drum scratches and drums set the scene for the awesome finale, which feels like missiles blazing with trails like fireworks in swarms. He's told his story, now what will happen in the decades to come?

    General CommentThe song's about the future, but it's also about enjoying the music you like and the fact that you can like more than one thing without coming off as "fake." At least, that's my interpretation of this song.
