Endless Summer


Most of my friends know that I intensely dislike Disco music.  The 70’s weren’t the favorite decade in my life.  However, there is one exception to that rule….Donna Summer.  I owned every album (yes, I am showing my age), and I played them over and over again.

Today, I have every Donna Summer song on my Ipod.  I listen to them over and over.  I never seem to tire of “Last Dance,” “On The Radio,” “Hot Stuff,” or “She Works Hard For The Money.”  I know all the words and love to sing with her, albeit a little off-key.

I had planned on writing the next part in our St. Louis story yesterday, but felt too sad when heard of Ms. Summer’s passing.  It was a little surreal to think she was here in Naples, Florida during her final moments.  I heard she loved it here.  Our Endless Summer days took a break for 2 straight days this week and it had rained most of the time.  Now I know why.

I’m glad she had so many hits that will live on in my Ipod, albums, and perhaps a few 8tracks as well.  I am thankful that because of her I do like a little “Disco” now and then.   Thank you again Ms. Summer.

  1. Maybe we should change our usage of “disco” to mean something we’re nostalgic for …. “Hey, remember cassette mix tapes and jelly shoes?” “Oh, yeah – they were disco. Totally.”

  2. I LOVE the way you write your blog entries. Your writing technique is so disco.

    You’re right, Becca. It works. You’re disco.

    Whitney Houston, Donna Summer, Robin Gibb…DAMN!!! NOT disco.
