423 – Sylvester – You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) (1978)
Written by Sylvester and James Wirrick
Produced by Harvey Fuqua and Sylvester
Label – Fantasy

Originally a mid tempo pop song, Sylvester, obviously inspired by Moroder’s “I Feel Love” and encouraged by Hi-NRG producer Patrick Cowley, recorded “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)” with pulsating rhythms, layers of synths and ample space for his falsetto to soar. The result is overpowering; frenetic, ecstatic, and wholly hypnotic. Much more than that, it makes the world a better place to live in.
