R.I. P. Donna Summer

Two famous musicians died within 24 hours of each other. I plan to write about one of them somewhere else. The more famous one is Donna Summer. She was known as the "Queen of Disco." She was known for her sexual songs as well, certainly her influence opened the doors for Madonna and Lady Gaga and others.

Here is a very long song by her that illustrates that part...

But she was a giant doing a duet with Barbara Streisand...
In the end I guess you can say she worked hard for the money....

No doubt about it she had a long and successful career and she will be missed by her fans and the music world. Cancer struck again.

Actually, believe it or not, I loved Bee Gees and never heard of Donna Summer... until now. She was truly amazing. So sad, Robin Gibb was only 62... Donna almost same age.
