Donna Summer is giving you the finger

Sweet Nefertiti! This is guaranteed to make you shimmy your posterior. Canadian funk outfit lend their synth swagger to "Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger)" by Donna Summer.

Originally released in 1982, the single reached #10 on the US singles chart and hit #18 in the UK. It was produced by sonic mastermind, Quincy Jones, after the incredible success of Michael Jackson's album, "Off The Wall".

The single is one of several post 70's gems released by the Queen Of Disco which showed that, with the right material, Donna could still bring the goods to the dancefloor. It also happens to be one of my favorites of hers.

I love the original version. It always makes me wanna run around the room and smash stuff! And I quite like this newly reswizzled slice of Summer. After a year since her untimely passing, I suspect Verve, the label that commissioned this funky affair, is getting ready to release a remix project. Watch this space!
