"Forbidden Love" by Madleen Kane - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Madleen Kane’s “Forbidden Love” is the outline for her 1979 LP “Cheri” – it featured a dance medley outlining the passion and desire of “Forbidden Love”.
The album was produced by Michaële, Paul & Lana Sébastian (Theo Vaness, Lenore O’Malley, Pacific Blue) and featured many musicians from classic disco sessions from Munich, Germany including Thor Baldursson and Marc Chanteraeu – as well as a fantastic mix by Jim Burgess.
The song has always been the suspect of not only being a theme for a 3-sided love affair, but also that of gay or homosexual love. In1987 I missed a film titled “Maurice” with James Wilby, Hugh Grant and Rupert Graves based on the novel by E. M. Forster. It is tale of homosexual love in early 20th century England when it was referred to as “immoral”. By religious standards, no doubt.
Phil from Multiply had asked me to view the film and use it in a Disco Video Mix – this is the product of that request. I cannot thank Phil enough for bringing this film to mind – it is well done and well deserved to be a classic in not only gay cinema but that of the words of a great dance standard: “How can stop it?”
“Maurice” was directed by James Ivory
