Know your history

I had no recognition of the name Giorgio Moroder from Daft Punk's new album. Then realized he did "Chase" from Midnight Express in 1978. That song, Axel F. (1984, by his protégé), and Blue Monday (1983) were what got me into techno—oh!—but I first heard them as MODs downloaded over xmodem.

PS: The "Chase" is more proof that 1978-1982 were the best years in the history of modern music.
