Donna Summer, 1948-2012

I hated disco when it dominated the party scene and the airwaves in the mid to late 1970s. Now that it's wrapped in the warm blanket of nostalgia, my feelings have mellowed. And I always made an exception for this lady with the powerful voice. Thanks to Rael1964 for this live performance clip.

    Yeah, I was a "Death to Disco" metal head in the 70s and beyond, but when one listens in one's mellower years, disco is quite an interesting and wonderful fusion of funk, soul, techno, r&b, and rock. It's great stuff, and is increasingly a part of my iPod collection, displacing "classic rock."

    I was coming of age in Brooklyn Heights in the 70s and danced to Donna Summer and other disco queens and kings on the Promenade and in Pierrepont Playground on hot summer nights! Loved her then, love her now!
