Lover by Sylvia Love - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Sylvia Love (Chantal Pierre) has
2 places in disco history Instant
Love and Extraterrestrial Lover.
Produced by Trevor Vallis in 1979, these tracks
exude the energy that disco music is all about.
Flowing and lovely, both tracks have a sensual
feel with both Sylvias vocals and Trevors
keyboards and arrangements that are surely tailored
as for a dance floor at 5 AM.
This style of disco music has always
held a special place in my world and dance floor
weaving an imaginary place and theme with
pulsating energy lightly accenting a make-believe
Using the 1984 John Carpenter film,
Starman as the eye candy here is a
perfect match for Extraterrestrial Lover.
The story outlines a starship from outer space,
which crash lands to avoid an attack from a military
aircraft, and a visitor is introduced to a young
woman. After taking on the characteristics of
her deceased husband through DNA from a locket
of hair she becomes fearful at first, but then
realizes the special event will bring her heart
closer again to the memory of her loved one.
Note: I can remember a visitor
to my booth back in 1984 while playing this Sylvias
track and saying that the song was a take off
of E.T. when actually this
song was released in 1979. Long before our little
extraterrestrial friend found Reese's Pieces.
