    I think that 'I Feel Love' came out towards the end of '82 rather than being '70s. Summer was once quoted as saying that gays were disgusting, and that AIDS was God's revenge on them- nasty. Gay duo The Communards retaliated by doing a cover version of 'I Feel Love', which did very well in the British charts! I think that she was later forced to issue an apology by her record company, but to even think such a thing in the first place is vile.
