Goodnight, Disco Queen

Donna Summer has died and the voice of an era is gone. For better or worse, she catapulted disco from its underground grit to its popular gloss.

Who hasn't grooved to this on a drunken dance floor at the end of the night?

As I read posts, blogs and blog comments on her untimely death from lung cancer, it's evident Donna Summer's music brought indescribable joy to many at a time when they felt fearful, alone or isolated.

There is no greater achievement, in my opinion, than in having made others' lives more bearable. Well done, Donna. We loved to love you.

I don't trust anyone who doesn't love Disco, or Donna Summer!
