Senses of shame: CHAKA KHAN – “I Feel For You”

Is it because she is blind that she feels for me? Or that the lights are off? Either way the last thing I want is a woman with scary hair groping me up and down. Especially if she is then going to drag along fellow blind man Stevie Wonder on harmonica and Mellie Mel (so bad they named him the same thing TWICE) to stumble around in the room. Of and who is that in the corner. Diminutive groper Prince who also fancies “feeling for me” even now I have turned the light on.

I Feel For You is an appalling piece of mid eighties muck. Disco diva: Check. Some rapping: Check. Stevie Wonder’s nasty one size fits all mouth organ playing. All summed up in a song so poor that the Bangles probably rjected it. It has thouse Star Wars breaks in it which always make me think of Chaka getting shot with a futuristic ray gun (not an unpleasant thought) but beyond that it is like a cess pit of all that was poor about eighties black music. The rap is not credible, the song is pathetic, and she feels for me? Well I suppose after creating this kind of pain she should feel sorry for us. I would rather she did the time for her crime though.
