Donna Summer’s “Working The Midnight Shift” (Holy Ghost! Remix): Idolator Premiere
Back in 1977, Donna Summer raised the bar for disco releases by offering up the sweeping, fairy-tale-themed double album Once Upon A Time. Thirty-six years later to the exact week, the beloved diva’s posthumous remix collection Love To Love You Donna will arrive (it’s out October 22). You may recall that we premiered the tracklist a few weeks back — and among the mixes is Holy Ghost!‘s reworking of “Working The Midnight Shift,” which first appeared on Once Upon A Time.
Lyrically, “Working The Midnight Shift” served as the precursor to Donna’s early-’80s smash “She Works Hard For The Money.” Holy Ghost’s mix finds the New York duo taking the original, futuristic Giorgio Moroder production and shaping it into a modern day synth-fueled stomper.
Head below to hear Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel’s musical reinvention of the classic Donna Summer song.
