Whoever thought overcoming adversity could sound so… fun? Gloria Gaynor identified her relationship struggles and turned them into a glittering disco anthem. What makes “I Will Survive” so interesting in this aspect is that it manages to achieve the self-confidence and flashiness of most disco songs without ever indulging in the extreme recording production practices of the day. Gaynor’s voice is presented without any pitch or tempo shifting, this is completely her delivery. Such a natural confidence makes this song such a compelling force among its disco contemporaries.
