Geraldine Hunt — Can’t Fake the Feeling
from No Way (1980)
“I been lovin you for many years.. I know every inch of your bodayyy…”
Damnnnnn lady. Geraldine Hunt has an amazing voice, and coupled with these peppy beats and bass pops she’s unstoppable. This track didn’t get much mainstream radio play, as radio DJs didn’t give a damn about disco by the time 1980 rolled around, but it spent seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard club charts.
Interesting life story, too:
Her father was a one-man band, and her grandmother, Louella Reed was a singer on the Chitlin Circuit. In 1947 her family relocated to Chicago. While growing up on Chicago’s south side Hunt discovered her musical talent. Living in that part of Chicago was not easy, recalls Geraldine. “On the weekends, we had to sleep on the floor, gangs were shooting through the house; It was rough.” - Wikipedia
