Son of My Father – Giorgo Moroder

Our local Mexican grocery store – called Super A – always plays the best music.  It’s not uncommon to hear an old song by Dion or Ray Charles while you’re shopping for avocadoes.  (They have the most delicious avocadoes in the world — tiny little Haas avocadoes that are almost always perfectly ripe.)

The other day I Shazamed this incredible song I’d never heard before.  I’d also never heard of Giorgio Moroder, who turns out to be the “king of Italo disco,” the writer of major hits like “Take My Breath Away,” and a producer who worked on Blondie’s “Call Me.”  Who even knew there was a thing called “Italo disco?”
