Chaka Khan: I Feel For You | The Spindle

For the first time, Marc and John delve into a bonafide pop chart phenomenon: Chaka Khan’s 1984 cover of Prince’s “I Feel For You” backed with “Chinatown.” It was a top 5 mainstay of the Billboard Hot 100 for months, but there’s a lot of interesting stories behind its success too. Hear why this record is not just a classic, but a groundbreaker, on the latest episode of the Spindle.

About The Spindle: The 7-inch record isn’t just a format—it’s an art form. On each episode of The Spindle podcast, music writer Marc Masters (Pitchfork, The Wire, Bandcamp) and music historian (and music maker) John Howard dive into a great 7-inch, dissecting its background, impact, and the reasons why it stands out as a small plastic piece of music history.
