Donna Summer

It seems lately that this blog does little more than report on the sad passing of musical legends but, unfortunately, another shining star has left us, in the shape of Donna Summer, Queen Of Disco.

Best known for her ground-breaking Hi-NRG collaborations with Giorgio Moroder, such as On The Radio and Love To Love You Baby, Ms. Summer was the original Funky Diva, one of the most influential artists of the '70s and '80s, and one hell of a singer. Below are two of my favourites from her career, the Quincy Jones-produced cover of Jon And Vangelis' State Of Independence ( the superior version, IMO ) and the all-conquering Disco classic, I Feel Love...

RIP Donna Summer 31st December 1948 - 17th May 2012
